100 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.

drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA

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.

drank Vanilla Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

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.

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.
