91 Tasting Notes
Sipping on this at Billy Bishop Airport while waiting for my flight to board. I noticed a Loblaws across the street from diner where I was having breakfast and thought I’d check it out. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had a loose leaf tea section. After pestering the sales associate to smell a bunch of the teas, I picked four. This was one of them and I was really hesitant to try it because bergamot is really hit or miss with me.
I’m very happy that I picked this one up. I steeped it for about 2 minutes and added sugar. It is sooo creamy and has a buttery caramel taste. The grapefruit gives it a nice tangy flavour and the bergamot is there but tolerable. After reading the other reviews, I was expecting to be disappointed in this but oh my god, it’s delicious!
I’m a coconut fiend so I obviously had to give this one a go.
The scent of this one reminds me of coconut cake. I definitely get a thick cake taste from this and I imagine if I added a sweetener, I’d also get a nice icing finish. I tend to do without sweeteners and this one is tasty enough without it.
I ordered the 5 Teas For $5 pack from Verdant Tea last month and it just arrived!
First steep, 10 sec: Whoa chocolate! The more I sip, the more I taste fudge.
Second, 10: Chocolate aroma is gone completely. It smells like sesame. I ordered Adagio’s Sesame tea last month and I wished it smelled as good as this. I have a feeling I’m going to have to order this. Tastes like honey, really smooth.
3, 40 s: Chocolate flavour is back, but lighter.
4, 1 min: Sesame taste
5, 1:30 …regular black tea
6, 2 min: so sweet! Amazing chocolate and honey in the aftertaste. Like rice but not in a bad way.
And I lost track after that. I was so delighted with this tea. I didn’t expect it to live up to expectations but it surpassed them!
I’m pleasantly surprised by this! It’s simple yet satisfying and the perfect thing to relax with after being stuck inside working on a beautiful day.
I splurged and ordered from Andrews & Dunham a few weeks ago when they were offering free shipping. I just couldn’t pass it up! Anyway, this tea is smooth, delicious and is like a punch to the face (y’know, in a good way).
My parents went to Halifax this week and brought me back DavidsTea’s Spring Collection as a gift for looking after the house while they were gone! I had already tried Daydreamer and Coconut Oolong (which I haven’t reviewed yet but if I had, it would be a giant keysmash and all in caps. It is SO good!) and I was pretty excited to try the rest.
I’m not that big of a fruity black tea fan but I like this one. It reminds me of Paradise Found but without the hibiscus, which was my only problem with Paradise Found. I can’t see this as something I’d have in the morning but it would be perfect for midday. This would probably taste amazing iced!
First steep: Boiling, 3 mins, no additives.
Second: 95 degrees, 3 mins, agave.
Received this from an awesome friend who I’m trying to get on Steepster! I’m going to drink my way through this 50g pouch SO fast. This tastes lovely! I’m not a huge fan of chamomile but I can’t even taste it in this (on a superficial note: the flowers look pretty when they blossom in the hot water :3 ). This is just the right e of vegetal and caramel flavours and it makes for a smooth cuppa.
