So I tried this tea on Christmas eve and yesturday while visiting a david’s tea store. For a while I have been looking for a tea that has that chocolately soemthing that I wanted. And this makes me happy. I think I finally found it. Funny thing is that I didn’t notice the chocolate, my fiancee did. It really is just a delicious tea, no wonder is is the tea of the month for december. :) It really is a wintery treat.
121 Tasting Notes
So I got this for my sister for christmas. She brewed her first mug on boxing day and said it was delicious. So of course, I had to steal a sip and see for myself. It was great. I’m going to have to go get some for myself. Very light and embracing jasmine flavour.
So I had this christmas day :) Great way to be festive.
So I had this monday at work. My lovely sister was brewing tea for everyone and this was just yummy. Always a good classic.
So this is day 19 of the advent calendar. I own this tea, but the last time I had it, I did not enjoy it. Today I steeped it for about two minutes and put some milk in it. The result? It tasted like a hot chocolate. Yummy.
Day 18 on the advent calendar… was too busy working to drink this yesterday. So I decided to make a pot this morning. The smell was comforting, but did not make me think of walnuts, but I still think this is a good tea. It isn’t just a regular mug of green tea, there is a special twist, a different ( good) taste to it. And I really am just enjoying it this morning. This is something I would consider buying when my tea collection dwindles down a bit.
So Yesturday I stopped by David’s Tea and was in the mood to try a different tea. I told the nice saleslady which teas I already own and love and as per her recoomendation and a smell test, I went with Bhudda’s Blend. I do no regret getting this one bit, it was a nice and lighter version of three wishes and had a soothing flowery smell. I was just completely taken by it. I should get a tin of this sometime soon.
So I went to David’s Tea quickly yesterday as I was in the mall and returning stuff. I decided a quick stop in DT before heading home would make my day. I got a tea to go and saw the samples. I already know what Chocolate Chili Chai tastes like, so I went for the Bravissimo, excited to try a new flavour. I think it’s safe to say that it is not my cup of tea. It tasted like licorice, which I usually like, but there was another flavour in there that just made me say ewww gross. So I ended up not finishing the sample.
So this is Day 16 of the tea calendar and I didn’t really like it. Right when I opened the tin and took a whiff, I smelt the cloves. I don’t really like cloves, especially since I got sick last year and made myself clove tea to get better. I assume that becuase this tea has clove in it, that it would be great to have around when being sick. But becuase clove has such a strong taste, I feel like it overpowered the drink for me.
So this was monday’s tea … Day 17 of the advent calendar. I meant to have Sunday’s first, but mixed up the tins and didn’t realise till I started drinking the tea. This tea is a mixture of black and white tea, with some chamomile. So it makes sense that it was very soothing to drink it. I found the flavour light and enjoyable.
Day 15 of this tea …. finally almost caught up :) . So this is a change from the black, then rooibos and then herbal selections. I didn’t really the the aroma of this tea at first, but when I brewed it, the smell grew on me. I think I had to get used to the taste as well, I feel that it is a stronger green tea, but it is still quite tasty. And no, this wasn’t pink like 3 of the previous teas, it was a nice yellowy green. So its nice to see a change of color. Happy Drinking
So I have this tea too, I tried it first this summer. Day 14 on the calendar, I decided to brew it iced for a busy day at work. I brewed it hot in the morning and slipped it in the fridge when I got to work. I pulled it out in the afternoon and had a refreshing iced tea. I really like this one. It is also a pink tea… so much beautiful colour.
When I opened this the other day as day 13, I was totally happy. I really love this tea and already own a tin of it. I was so giddy. So this afternoon, I decided to make this tea. I made a pot of it and my dad just started drinking it before I got to it, it’s his fave too. I just love this tea. I have been having an off weekend, so drinking this tea this afternoon comforted me.
This morning, I had day 12 of the advent calendar:) For days I have been smelling the delicious aroma of banana bread from this little tin. I decided that today I would make a pot of this tea. I was surprised to see this one come out pink, much like the sleigh ride. The taste was both nutty and flowery. I like it hot better than cold.
Day 11 of the advent calendar:) This herbal tea is very fruity. I love the smell of it. The taste is not my fave but its different.
So this is day 10 of the advent calendar… I’m almost caught up. This one smells fun and excting and also has an adventure of taste. The little apple pieces in this tea are just so cute in the hot water.
So this is day 9 of my ade advent calendar. I kinda liked the smell of the tea, but the taste just wasn’t for me.
So I had this today while at work, I made it for my morning tea time. I really love the scent of this tea, it is just so festive and inviting.
Day 8 of the advent calendar :) I decided to have this tea this morning… as the name indicates . I think it is a good basic black tea. I love the taste. It tastes good with milk. I would buy this later on. I have 25g of it.
Day 7 of the advent calendar… catching up! So this tea made me quite nervous to try out becuase I tried this tea about 8 months ago and I didn’t like it, perhaps I didn’t brew it properly becuase I tried it today and I was stunned that I actually finished the cup. So it was a good tea to have in the advent calendar becuase it made me give this tea the second chance I would never have given it otherwise. I am not going to get a tin just yet as I will actually drink the 50 grams of it I have now, becuase I ignored it all this time.
So I also had the Day 6 tea… Glitter and gold. So this really belongs on the adevent calendar. I bought 25 grams of this tea a few weeks ago becuase I was looking for a tea that was similar to toasted marshmallow and the lovely david’s tea saleslady reccommened this one. I decided to wait to try it becuase I knew it was on the advent calendar. I really love the gold balls when they dissolve in the water and create a shine. I really want to have a glass of this christmas morning. The taste is simialar to toasted marshmallow. Def going to be buying a tin of this sometime soon.
So this is day 5 on the advent calendar… I didn’t manage to catch up yet this weeked as I was super busy. I made a pot of this this morning alongside my silk dragon jasmine latte. I kept it on the warmer and got to drink this all morning. I am really happy to have this tea on the calendar.
Had this as a latte today! Great way to start my day. I steeped it to be slightly stronger today… delicious. I just love this tea. Recently went and bought a tin of it.
Day 4 on the adevent calendar. So I was really excited to try this tea out. the leaves themselves didn’t smell like anything. When I boiled some water and steeped the tea, I could tell where it got its name. All I could smell was salt, it was actually a turn off for me. The taste was pretty heavy on the salt too, almost didn’t taste the caramel. Halfway through the mug, I decided to put some milk in to better the flavor… it kind of imporved it. Overall I don’t think I like this one all too much, but it’s way better than the Coco Chai Rooibos.
