Recent Tasting Notes
Another interesting tea, courtesy of my good friend QuiltGuppy,
A fruit oolong, something out of the ordinary for me. This is very good. I can taste melon, both honeydew and water varieties. There is a bit of floral flavor and a hint of pear, although the description does not mention it. It is a darker oolong, almost amber and slightly roasted. This tea has a depth to it, not just taste on the surface, it seems to go down a few layers. Thanks QG, this is very interesting and delightful.
I also refused the bait and spared you all comments about forbidden things…fruit or otherwise. :)
I got this as a sample from my last online order and decided to try it this morning. It was kinda meh, nothing fantastic to write home about and could barely taste the mint. i guess the predominant taste would be the pureh which is fine but I am not a big fan. I will give this another go though as I steeped it at a low temp as it had green tea but DT’s website recommends 98 so that might have had something to do with it.
Thursday’s thermos of tea for the day. Yum. I had forgotten how juicy and fruity this little beauty is. It was no hardship at all to drink the 1.5 L of this. It did give me a bit of a boost, and while I didn’t feel overly jittery like I sometimes do with matcha, it kept me going on a painfully long day.
Oooooh, today was a long one. So long. Was supposed to close at 8 yesterday, but thanks to the demon kids from hell, I didn’t leave the office until 9. Started work at 11 this morning and at 12, there was a family emergency that left us with three admins (two of us still in training) for two offices and three doctors. That’s not a good ratio, and guess who got to be the one running between the offices? Yup, that’d be me. During one of my many trips between the two, I stopped in at DT and got a big cuppa this, iced. Yum. Exactly what I needed to get my energy level up and survive my day.
One of the doctors did give me some pretty major words of praise, though, which I had been desperately needing, so it wasn’t all bad. And my next day is with my favorite admin and my favorite doctor, and it’s only 6 hours long. Woo!
I don’t know how they did it, but the girls at the DavidsTea I visited yesterday managed to mess this up. It wasn’t my local store and it’s one I wasn’t impressed with the last time I was there, so…who knows.
But I’m really confused. I’ve left this tea in to steep for 20 minutes or more and it still turns out tasty! The tea I got in store yesterday, however, was thick and bitter and I basically just chugged it so I could get the energy and not waste it. Maybe they used too much leaf (for my tastes, others might enjoy it that way).
I’m not going to change my rating, because I know I can make this tea beautifully at home, but the stuff I drank in store yesterday was horrid.
Mmmmmmm. Returned from our trip at 7:30 this morning, and after two days of travel and three restless nights, I desperately needed a pick me up while we were running errands today. My brother and I were discussing Jungle Ju Ju, and it was exactly what I was craving. Yum! Light and fruity, it gave me just enough energy to get through my day.
In other news, my delightful brother (who I’m sure will show up on here sometime soon) recently got engaged, so for an engagement gift, I took him a bag of 20 or so teas and a DavidsTea logo mug (his name is David). We gave it to them last night. By this morning they had put together a big order online with DavidsTea! XD. I created a monster!
Using a tall glass of this cold as a pick-me up and an energy-giver and boy is it working! I found out today that I did not get the job I had been hoping for (praying for, begging for), and I’m a little down and dreading having to send out more resumes, as the last 25 only brought back that one potential lead. Anyone know of any jobs in Toronto? ;).
Anyway, this tea is giving me the boost I need to get more done, so here I go…wish me luck!
This is my jug of caffeinated tea for the week, though I can’t drink it without Jungle Boogie getting stuck in my head. Iced, this is one of the most refreshing drinks I’ve ever had. Yum, yum, yum! I woke up this morning feeling utterly dried out and dehydrated and this is just what I was craving (though it is leaving a bit of dryness on my mouth).
Still trying to recover enough from the Reactine to do…something, anything. I adore this tea, and as soon as the money tree blooms, I need a tin of it. Neeeeeeed.
This is actually a resteep of my wife’s leaves from this morning. I’ve started using filtered water, especially for my resteeps, and that way the flavor isn’t washed out by chlorine. Blegh. So far, so good, might even try for a third!
Yesterday was a huge day for me. As of 8:11 am on May 24th, 2011, I am a permanent resident of Canada. YAY!
However, as of 10 pm, May 23rd, I had food poisoning and enough stress about my landing interview the next day that I couldn’t sleep at all. (The landing interview took ten whole minutes and was stupidly stressfree).
Cut to 4 pm yesterday, and I was dragging. I was incredibly exhausted from a day of dealing with the government and putting in applications (I seriously handed out about 20 resumes yesterday). So when we stopped in at DavidsTea to drop off an application, well, of course I had to try this beauty! We were told it tastes like Lipton tea with peach, and I’ll agree with that. It was delicious. And more importantly, it gave me the much-needed boost to finish handing out resumes and applications. I was awake and alert without being jittery.
So there you have it!
I was sent a sample of this tea with my David’s Tea order. This is a very strong black tea for my taste, and I honestly didn’t get much of a raspberry or coconut flavor from it. I once loved strong black teas. If fact, I remember smashing my English Breakfast tea in the basket trying to get every last bit of flavor from it. This was a good black tea, but not one that suits my tea taste today.
