106 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.
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.
