drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA
1397 tasting notes

This is pretty refreshing, although I oversteeped it a bit and the rooibos is really strong. Noticeably stronger than the black tea at least. Aside from that I do get a bit of creamy coconut and mint and it’s quite enjoyable.

I should really try this iced though. I have a feeling drinking it warm isn’t doing it justice.

ETA: The creamy mint notes linger long after each sip…. Mmmmm…

I was fantasizing about Mint Julep the other day and since I didn’t have any I steeped North African Mint hoping for similarity. I mean, it’s mint, right? WRONG! So didn’t do the trick for me. (It’s probably like saying all blue cheese is the same)

After trying this tea I sorta wonder what REAL Mint Julep would taste like! Just so I know what the tea is going for. :)

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
