98 Tasting Notes
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.
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.
