13 Tasting Notes
Ah, such a nice feeling tea. I tried this for the first time at my cousin’s house and was introduced to it as a ‘sleepy’ tea. Not only did it put me to sleep but it left me wanting more in the morning. Gives off a fruity and fresh taste but at the same time, it really does make me feel like this was something my mother came up with and made me drink after 6-year -old me was upset about something. It makes sense why this is my 6-year-old’s sister’s favourite!
This was included as one of my free samples when I had an order shipped from David’s Tea. Despite the pleasant aroma that gave me the impression that this tea would be sweet and summer-y, it disappointed me. It was very bitter and flowery and left me with an awful taste in my mouth. I had a hard time finishing my Bodum but carried it around with my for the rest of the day, convincing myself it was an acquired taste. However, I did get many complements on the strong fragrance this tea gives out. Maybe try making this one into a candle instead, David.
This tea was actually given to me for free at a DT store when they had run out of the 911 tea that my mom was looking for. Yes, that’s right. 100g of this godly tea, all for free thanks to the kind hearted employees of my favourite tea emporium. I had originally tried this tea at a friend’s house who offered me some in thanks for letting him try my Alpine Punch. Not sure what the tea even tasted like, I was excited to try it for the glitter that appears in your tea after steeping it. I got so excited about the steeping process that I actually purchased a clear glass traveler from David’s with the bamboo lid in order to steep this and have everyone else see the magic that unfolds when the tea is ready to drink. Not to mention the quality of taste, this tea is a definite favourite
Another rooibos that I wasn’t sure of what I would think of it. I picked this up as well in the Winter Tea Collection and had it as the one tea of the five that I wouldn’t particularly buy if it wasn’t for it being apart of the collection. I steeped this tea for the first time with a few friends that were up to trying this flavoured rooibos and was pleasantly surprised. The title of this tea is sort of misleading as everyone I drank it with described it as tasting like a red freezie in those sort of 8×1 packs we had had when we were little. Delicious tea, definitely a re-buy
So impressed with this creation. Rushed to my nearest DT to try this the day of its release. My friends and I were all so satisfied with their accuracy and reminisced back to childhood where we would have loved to be able to drink cookies like we were doing then. I picked up this favourite in the Winter Tea Collection and have been trying to savour it. I loved their choice of creating this as a white tea as apposed to a black or rooibos because it really makes for a smooth, light and clean tasting tea. Definitely going to leave this for Santa by the tree this year!
