430 Tasting Notes
CHOCOLATE. It really reminded me of the rest of David’s chocolate teas, especially the chocolate chili chai. Need to play with the brewing to draw out some of the creaminess, but this is the best of their chocolate teas I’ve had.
The scent of the dry leaf was much stronger than the brewed tea, but I think it just needs a longer steep than the usual two minutes I do for black.
It was creamy – it tasted like ice cream! Weeeeird. I didn’t get any particular ice cream flavour over another, but again, I need a longer steep before I can really pick one out. Definitely want to keep drinking this.
I can’t seem to pinpoint why I didn’t like this one. It certainly lived up to its name – it tasted like creamy sugary vanilla sprinkle cake, even down to the slight burnt little crusty bits that get stuck in the pan. It wasn’t overly sweet, but every sip left me feeling like I had just snorted straight cake mix. Unpleasant.
This was unfortunately forgettable. I drank it this morning, and I really can’t think of any good way to describe it. Hmm. It was . . . fruity? And creamy?
Up and down all night panicking about teachers’ college applications, needed to stay awake somehow. This is such a delicious sweet energy punch, without much of the fuzzy pollen-y flavour I sometimes get from mate.
I need to drink this more. It’s always delicious, always amazing. This amazing dusky full Earl flavour. It’s hands down my favourite Earl, and that’s saying something.
This tea is so delicious, just light and full of flavour, but it is so naturally sweet that it was not the best choice for my first-thing-in-the-morning tea. Definitely an after dinner tea.
