I think the person who created this tea is a sushi addict. It is pretty much the perfect tea to sip while munching on rolls and sushi.
Dry, I have a love/hate relationship with this one. I want to love it, and definitely love notes of it, but every time I sniff the leaves I keep changing my mind about how much. I think I’d prefer it as a deodorant scent than a tea (as unappetizing as that is!) It’s fresh and clean smelling, but there’s just something about it that keeps me from falling in love.
Brewed, it lost some of that weird something and mellowed out scentwise. I definitely can see myself boiling a pot of this to scent my house. Tastewise I find it weaker than I expected, but not in a bad way. I find the mildness actually helped me enjoy the flavour a bit more, keeping the notes from being overpowering.
Splash! isn’t one I think I’ll be reaching for to sip, or that I will ever crave, but if I have fish meals I think this is going to be the one I serve with it. Am a wee bit afraid to try it iced though!
How do you revolutionise tea making? By using the Steeper – tea brewing is quick, easy, and mess free, and you get to watch your gorgeous leaves unfurl and dance through the clear BPA free plastic! Just a genius device, and the joy of watching the liquid disappear into your cup never gets old ( or I’m just very easily entertained!). Thank you DavidsTea and international shipping!
I love, love, LOVE this tea!!! I too don’t care for banana in my tea, but this is so much more. Coconut and light fruits, a hint of chocolate taste! It’s one of the teas that I find does not leave a bitter aftertaste or slick in my throat. Yes it’s bulky and takes a little more to make a good cup, but the smell alone is heaven!
Don’t scald the tea, I find it tastes “bad” if you pour super boiled water on it right away. Leave the bag in for the entire cup!
I got this one as a sample with an online order that I placed. I must admit, to me, this tea isn’t that memorable. I wanted to really love it, but I didn’t really get the love feeling from this one.
For me, all the flavours kinda just mixed together and there really wasn’t anything that stood out. The walnut flavour was probably the strongest that I got out of it, but even then, I dunno.
I’m wondering if maybe I’ve oversteeped it?
Day 36 of my 101 days of tea challenge. Got a tin of this on the DAVIDsTEA boxing day sale.
I actually like this. The taste is reminiscent of spiced carrot cake, and is quite pleasant, if a little weak. It doesn’t resteep particularly well — I found it losing flavour faster than a lot of other teas. However, not bad the second time around at least.
The carrot is the strongest flavour, though not overpowering. It’s a rather subtle tea, and I think I might see whether a bit of sweetener might further enhanse it next time. However, it was perfectly good on its own.
Those who like carrot cake for the cake will probably enjoy this tea. Those who need the icing for it to really be a true carrot cake? Perhaps not as much. (I myself live in both camps from time to time, hense why I can enjoy this myself.)
So first I have to admit — I work at DAVIDsTEA so I am a little bit biased, but this is my ALL-TIME FAVORITE tea. I honestly can’t live without it. Last year I bought 500g because I was so scared it wasn’t going to come back this year. I haven’t had to replenish my stock, but I might have to before it goes away this year. I ALMOST have enough to make it through til’ next Christmas, too. They better warn me soon if they don’t plan to bring it back!!
Now, for those of you who have never tasted this tea:
First, imagine a full-bodied Chinese black tea, traditional in character.
Next, add the smoothness of vanilla.
After that, you need to stir it with a peppermint candy cane in your mind’s eye.
Now, add just a hint of spices like warm cinnamon and cloves.
My dream tea.
I used 2 and 1/2 scoops of dry leaf for my 473 ml thermos.
This tisane is satisfying as a mint tisane. I was initially drawn by the prospect of having fruit flavours mixed with the mint. I was also intrigued by the addition of the juniper berries. The mint flavour isn’t too pronounced and allows the apple and juniper berry flavours to come through. Sweet on the finish with a satisfying refreshing mint feel. The flavour reminds me of the taste of eating fruit after brushing my teeth.
For my second infusion, I used about 1/3 less water than from the first one and allowed it to infuse for 10 minutes. The mint flavour was less prevalent and the apple and juniper were allowed to come through a little bit more.
This is not a tisane to leave in while drinking. The apple gives a tart flavour which mixes very poorly with the mint.
Cold-brewed this tisane has a nice mint flavour which does not compliment the sour-tartness of the apple.
I only drink this one when I am having trouble falling asleep. 8 times out of 10 it works. I usually begin to feel drowsy within ½ an hour of drinking it and if I am still up an hour after the tea is gone, I cannot focus and feel pretty dopey. It has a great smooth flavour. I really enjoy the minty after taste. However, if I drink this tea more than two nights in a row I wake up with a headache the following morning.
I needed a jasmine fix, and I really wanted to see how this compares to the Teavivre jasmine silver needle. I only drank this tonight though, no comparison.
Not much different than the first note I wrote on this tea, smooth, slightly sweet, slightly grassy, not overpowering. Man…..I love white tea!
Next time, I will be comparing this to Teavivre’s version.
I thought this was so-so last year, but then I tried it this year and BAM! I like it, chocolate with a kick, and I love chocolate!
I am not usually a fan of spicy foods or anything, so the mild spiciness of this tea is good for me!
Definitely something that I would drink again, I hope it comes back next year too!
