135 Tasting Notes

drank Jasmine Green Tea by Kusmi Tea
135 tasting notes

So last Tuesday, on the 22, I had the last bag of this tea. Now I just have it in loose leaf form. This bag I’ve been saving for quite a while. I think it was exposed to too much air becuase usually the bag holds the smell of the tea quite nicely. This time I could barely smell the tea.

First Steep: SO the first steep, as I said above, the smell was very muted and so was the flavour. I only left the bag in for about five minutes, so that could have been a factor too.

Second Steep: I left the bag in this time. And it made a difference. The smell was still muted, but the flavour was much stronger than the first steep.

Last tuesday, during tutoring, I had this tea. Hooked from drinking it at DT, I decided to open up my sample that came with my boxing day tea order. I brewed it for the day and saved the other half for later in the evening. I was seduced by this lovely tasting and smelling tea. I really need to add this to my collection with a few other teas on my shopping list.

So, because I liked this tea so much from when I got it for my sister, I decided to go out and get some for myself. I made this tea monday january 21 for on the go for school. I don’t recommend doing this as I couldn’t throw away the leaves after steeping. It kind of got really strong. Even though it was strong, the nice light jasmine flavour came in, but it was almost completely overpowered by the bitterness of over-steeping white tea.

drank Ceylon Star by DAVIDsTEA

So this a new fave of mine. I think this is the chocolatey fix that I need to have once in a while. The flavour is so rich and smooth that every sip down to the last one is enjoyable. This was the tea of the day sample when I visited DT… I still don’t have it in my collection.

I had this tea for breakfast on Sun Jan 20. This is one of my fave breakfast teas to have. I love the citrusy and playful taste that this tea has to offer.

drank Green and Fruity by DAVIDsTEA
135 tasting notes

So this is a fave of mine and also a fave of my hubby-to-be. So I occasionally let him choose and mostly green and fruity wins his heart. We had this tea Sun Jan 20 to watch a movie at home. I love snacking on the little treats in this tea perhaps a bit too much. Oh, well, this tea is just a classic with me and him. Such happiness comes when this tea is brewed. From the smell to the taste, this tea is just amazing.

drank Fantasy Island by DAVIDsTEA
135 tasting notes

So this tea is from Friday January 18. I stopped by David’s Tea and was looking for something new to try. Just like the title suggests, it is a fantasy. The hint of berry and the kind of chocolatey taste was superb. I always love the amazing recommendations I get from the lovely DT staff.

drank Three Wishes Tea by DAVIDsTEA

So this is a tea note from Wednesday January 16. I am behind due to being so busy… but I am catching up. So I had this tea on Wednesday because I think it travels great. That day, we were in my film class wrapping up our first movie and discussing its themes and such. Anyways, three wishes always makes me relaxed and comfortable. So it made my class a good one.

So this tea I bought a sample of it from DT for 50cents since it was part of the boxing day sale that they had. I think I may try and get a few more of these because I rather quite liked it. I have been reading up on tea and tasting stuff, and I would say that this tea was a paradox for me. I didn’t completely love it, but I didn’t hate it either. So it made me enchanted and confused at the same time. This tea is definitely a darker black tea with a woodsy/ earthy kind of taste. And then there was a mysterious kind of sweetness to it… I’ll have to drink it again to get a better understanding of that flavour. I also found that I may have steeped it too long because I got a kind of bitter, yet not overly bitter taste from it. It will definitely need a second tasting to give it its justice. Next time I will steep this one at home as opposed to out on the go… so that I may see the colour of the tea.

Surpisingly I haven’t logged this tea ever… shame. Anyways, this is a fave of mine. I decided to brew it for breakfast this morning. I love them green and lemon flavouring of this tea. It really soothes me, which is a perfect way to start the day.
