drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA
101 tasting notes

I had my first cup of this yesterday evening, but I was on a good amount of cold medicine and didn’t feel coherent enough to log it.

Yesterday I thought this was mind-blowing, but that’s probably had to do with the meds. I do like this though. I love veggie-based blends and this was a refreshing cup of tea. I’m on my second steep of it and it resteeps really well. A lot of people have commented on its minty scent and taste, but apparently there isn’t actually any in the tea itself which I find really neat actually. Mint can be a bit of a turn off for me but in this sense, I quite like it. It doesn’t overpower the other flavours and just kind of chills out in the background.

Another thing I’m not the biggest fan of but was pleasantly surprised by was the melon. The sweet juiciness paired well with the vegetal flavour of the cucumber and I think it rounded out the tea quite well. I can’t decide if this is a tea I’d restock, but I’m definitely going to enjoy the rest of the pouch.

I had a similar experience. Was pleasantly surprised by it and loved it the first time thinking I should get more for sure, and a couple more cups when I got to the end of my 10g, I was already like huh, maaaaybe I’ll get more.

Bio

I’m a queer lady in my late twenties who loves cats, comic books, travel, and photography. I fell in love with tea in late 2011. My “tea corner” is now threatening to overthrow the kitchen! I’m the worst at writing so I’m sorry about the babbling messes my reviews will most likely be.

DAVIDsTEA was my first introduction to loose leaf tea and I’ve remained pretty loyal to them (especially since they’re a Canadian company so their shipping price isn’t ridiculous and delivery is speedy!) I’ve recently ventured into teas by 52teas, Della Terra Teas and the Metropolitan Tea Company.

The first teas I really enjoyed were dessert ones (and I still overloaded them with sugar, blech!). I still like them but now I’m trying to get into less-sugary teas. I loooooove me a good genmaicha and have a weakness for most oolongs.
