1738 Tasting Notes
I bought this in the summer when I was new to tea and thought I could judge a tea by its aroma and that I needed to buy 50g or more. I’m still trying to drink all those teas. :p
I think I still have 20g less, and it’s actually worse than I remember. All I can taste is the stevia. Hey! DavidsTea!!! I’m perfectly capable of adding my own sweetener if I want any.
But then what else should I expect from tea named after pop.
Today has been rough. So rough. The baby was miserable and wouldn’t sleep, and it’s just compounded so that it’s nearly midnight and she’s still awake and grumpy and I’m still awake and possibly grumpier. :| #momlife
Tried a few things and nothing worked so I took a little break to brew up a cup of Cocomint Cream while I left her to play with some toys. BEST CHOICE EVER.
DavidsTea better have something damn amazing to replace this because I am already sad that it’s going. I went into one of the stores and they are out of stock and don’t think they will get anymore in. I have one more store to check, otherwise I only have a precious 30g left.
Sadness. So much sadness. If I ever do experiment with blending teas, I’ll just have to make this one my damn self. :| #shakesfist
I pulled this out of my black tea box, steeped it, and by the time I had returned it to the tin, had forgotten what I had made. It was a fun game to figure it out.
It seems that the pomegranates are more prominent this time around, but the black base is slightly astringent. The sweet and bitter combination is interesting and will get me through the cup, but I’ll probably switch to something else instead of resteeping.
This is my first Pu-erh. I’m a little nervous because people keep saying that it’s fishy.
I steeped it for 50 seconds like the package said, and then gave it a sniff. My immediate reaction? Bleeeach. I actually made a noise out loud and that’s saying something!
First sip? Oh geez. This is super fishy. And it’s thick and seaweedy and so very strange.
A few sips later – I’m not sure if this is for me.
Oh. I didn’t rinse it. So I steeped it again. Less fishy. Still seaweedy, with a darker malty taste. It’s drinkable though.
Maybe it’s an acquired taste? I keep sipping but I doubt I’ll come close to finishing my cup.
It doesn’t seem fair to rate this because I’m sure there’s nothing wrong with it.
I won a 1oz sample of this through a facebook contest! Woohoo!
It totally sounds like an evening tea – something to drink while you’re wrapped up in a bunch of blankets and reading a book under the light from a lamp. I decided to have it now because I’m a rebel! :P
It smells really great. So much cinnamon and vanilla!
The first few sips – it’s really heady. So much vanilla! I get a bit of ginger and cinnamon at the beginning of each sip, but it’s quickly replaced by all the vanilla. It does have a bit of a warming effect though!
I’ll rate it when I’m not sleepy and a little dizzy and in need of some actual food instead of tea in my belly. :P
Yum! I bought a bunch of teas today for a birthday gift at Davids and saw this in a little sampler pack for half price. I should have loaded up on them, but only bought two. Oh well.
It smells very oolongy and buttery and great. Guess what? That’s pretty much how it tastes too. It’s a nice light tea, and and the flavour just lingers after each sip.
:| Why are oolongs so difficult to describe? I like it you guys! Try it!
So I made this tea about two hours ago, and then was completely distracted with the baby and helping a friend with a business idea.
I gotta say though that this tea is very forgiving. It’s room temperature and it is still very VERY good. It’s a pleasant swirl of apple and cinnamon with a touch of creaminiess to wrap it all together.
I have been so impressed with Della Terra Teas when it comes to their honeybush/rooibos blends. Wow. Thank you.
