91 Tasting Notes
Another tea from the 2012 advent calendar that I’m only getting around to now. I like this one; it’s vegetal, buttery and filling.
Sipping on a big pot of this while marathoning 30 Rock (my girlfriend’s sister insisted that I’d love it and she’s right).
This is one of the first teas I bought from DAVIDsTEA a little over two years ago when I first got into looseleaf teas. It’s weird because I really like the chocolate flavour in this but I can’t say the same for other chocolate teas from DAVIDsTEA (like Stormy Night and Dr Chocolate). The chocolate in the other teas seems kind of fake? I get kind of get it with this tea but there’s the white chocolate pieces and stevia to change the taste.
Wow, this smells amazing. To me it smells like vanilla ice cream. A friend smelled it and said it smelled fruity and sure enough, when I looked at the label, it said it contained orange.
Really interesting tea. The first pot I had was smooth vanilla (steeped 4 mins) and the second was a nice citrus-y oolong.
This was today’s sample at the Bleecker St store. Very vanilla but the rooibos is so strong. Not for me unfortunately.
Had a cup of this at the Bleecker St store in NYC. Added agave but this tea didn’t really need it. A very delicious and full tasting blend and you can definitely taste the cake and icing. I already have too many dessert teas but I may eventually add this to my collection.
