98 Tasting Notes
So I brewed it hot, had a few sips and then became a cleaning machine for about 40 mins. I just sat down to browse Twitter and Tumblr, then remembered my cup. This is amazing cold. So naturally sweet and just the perfect amount of tart (which, for me, is hardly any because I’m a big baby). Someone mentioned in their review that this would make a good cocktail and they are very right.
I haven’t been one for fruity teas lately, but this has definitely changed my mind.
Okay Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake, up until now we’ve had a rocky relationship. I am determined to like you and you just wanna be a spicy, clove-y tea for me. And clearly I’m the problem since all of the other reviews mention all of the pumpkin/caramel/cheesecake flavours they get. So it appears that my taste buds need to get it together.
This time I’m trying it with some lactose-free dairy thing that my Mum’s been telling me to try and a buttload of vanilla agave. This time the tea’s much sweeter and creamier and I’m getting a small hint of pumpkin spice. But I still feel like I could get it to be better. Sigh.
I feel like everyone’s reviews of this are so eloquent and nice and I just pop in like a mad scientist who’s trying to get the “perfect brew”. So in other words, I feel like Belle’s father in Beauty and the Beast.
Everyone: oh I loved the caramel/pumpkin/cheesecake flavours!
Me: http://cdn.buzznet.com/assets/users16/pattygopez/default/21-best-tv-movie-dads—large-msg-130808168094.jpg BUT HOW?
I couldn’t figure out what was it that drove me to get a pouch of this when I was at a DavidsTea store. I think I chalked it up to it being my preference for oolongs. But after looking at it’s ingredients I figured out that it was because of the jasmine in it. I have been crazy for jasmine lately and I’m always looking to add more teas that feature it to my collection.
Anyway, I like this one. The lemon adds a refreshing kick to it and the jasmine is quite soothing. This would make a fabulous “sick day” tea.
And now to continue my hunt for a sweet potato tea. I’m super cranky that Adagio discontinued theirs especially since Cara’s Bilbo blend looked SO delicious. But I think Lupicia has one so I may order that. If anyone knows of any others, feel free to suggest them.
Bought this at the Moncton store while the gf and I were heading back from our trp to Halifax earlier this week. I told the SA that I was looking to try more of DT’s white teas and this was one of the three she pulled down from the shelf.
I wasn’t sure how much I would like this since it smelled so sweet and I’ve been looking for more vegetal teas lately. This turned it to be a delight. It has a delicious caramel flavour to it and I really wish it wasn’t so expensive or I’d add it to my permanent collection.
