953 Tasting Notes
I steeped this for 12 minutes by mistake.
Guys: DO NOT DO THAT.
(This is not a tea that oversteeps well). I took a sip and it burned my mouth with all the smoke. I had to dump it, and I wasn’t ready to try that again)
After a few okayish teas, this is my reward goodnight sleepytime dessert tea. I am going to drink this while I eat a big bowl of knock-off cocoa puffs.
Chocolate cereal is the best. :D
Also, why haven’t I rated this tea yet? I should do a proper rating sometime in the future. I love this tea though. I should get more. Also, now that I know the lemon chiffon is honeybush and different enough, I should try it too.
I had a bit of this today and it was enough to remind me that it’s not as good as H&S’s cinnamon blend or even the basic cinnamon tea I got from Specifically Tea.
On a side-note, I am MORE aware of the pu-er. So I am learning how to detect things!
Goodbye Pom Power! Gooooodbye forever?
(hello pomtango! ilu!)
This is pretty awesome. It’s basically very similar to the countless other coconut oolongs we are all crazy about, except with pineapple sweetness brightening up the day.
This is the last of my sample and it’s still super bitter. Not sure what I did to make it so creamy and wondeful the first time, but I guess I’ll have to knock my rating down a little because it’s so inconsistent for me. :|
I would try it again though. Because when it works, it REALLY WORKS.
I bought this because the unicorn made me:https://twitter.com/DAVIDsTEA/status/311910727109713923/photo/1
I had that in my head all day, and when I went to the store I grabbed it, along with the mittful of clearance tea I bought on impulse. I can definitely taste the rooibos, but it doesn’t bother me like it does others. It also tastes like orange and vanilla and I probably need to make this iced and then FREEZE IT for fake CREAMSICLES in the summer. OH MAN I AM A GENIUS.
(Except I’m sure everyone else has already tried that. :P)
Anyway, this is a pretty nice herbal. Even with the rooibos aftertaste. People say they taste ‘bubblegum’ but I haven’t encountered that yet.
oh I bet I could even give this to the baby that’ll be great can’t wait for summer
OH, and speaking of being a genius, I figured out that $20 gets me 8 packs of tea, instead of 1.5 tins. I may end up with so many little DavidsTea pouches now, and samples sizes. I just don’t seem to have many regular teas that I drink daily – I’m always rotating to try new stuff. This will probably keep things fresher, and help me achieve sipdowns.
I made this again today and it was too bitter. What went wrong? Maybe I used a lower temperature yesterday? :| Will try again.
I totally meant to go to DavidsTea for Pom Power but before I made it out, I’d spent $20 and walked out with 7 other teas. I am so bad when it comes to deals.
The moral of this: GUYS! IF YOU WANT DT’s WINTER TEAS GET THEM NOW: 2- 25g bags for $5!
Really this was a terrible idea. I can’t even remember how excited I was about banana dream pie, and I bought two pouches. And do I really need more Cookie Dough?
When my bf saw my large blue bag he just asked, “So, how many teas are you at now?” Bahaha. He rocks.
