Recent Tasting Notes
Just tried this tea out tonight after smelling it in the store and loving it. I’m a big fan of blueberries in the summer or when they are in season so this was must.
I was worried as I am with a lot of berry teas that it might turn medicinal tasting (like Robotusin) but this didn’t do that at all. It was lovely and very much a true blueberry. The aftertaste really left the jam flavour. I have yet to try this cold but I think it would be lovely!
(Also I have not tried it with milk but blueberries and milk with sugar is one of my favourite treats so it might be really excellent!)
We are starting to get some hot weather here on the west coast which seems like a good excuse to make some iced tea… I picked this one up at DavidsTea because it smelled so good! Taking a closer look at the tea – in addition to the white tea leaves and the headlining mango, there is definitely a noticeable amount of orange (peel and “slices”) and pineapple. I steeped this tea for six minutes and, while it was cooling, added about two teaspoons of sugar, then poured over ice. The smell of the tea (while hot) instantly reminded me of hot apple cider and, to a lesser extent, fuzzy peaches. The taste (once cool) was that of pineapple and oranges… not much mango. That said, the tea was good, on par with many of the other iced teas that I have had this summer. I would’t have a problem drinking this tea again and it was quite refreshing on a hot evening.
I received a single serving sample of this with my last order from DAVIDsTea, and was excited to try it out since it wasn’t something that I was willing to risk order a whole package of. As stated in other comments, it looks like an innocent tea, until you let it steep. The color of it is… well, interesting, but the taste is great. Not too overpowering and not at all as disgusting as one might think. Definitely going to add a pack to my next order, I’d love to try it over ice, I have a feeling it would make a good (but funky) iced tea.
This tea has become my “go to” before bed tea. I am a big fan of lavender, and personally think that you can pick it up. I would have never thought to combine coconut into the mix, but was surprised at how well it worked and how smooth this tea is. I could see how someone who is not a fan of coconut would be turned off by this tea, but it gets my vote for a great brew!
I think I probably overleafed this one. I got quite a bit of bitterness from this one, and I believe it’s because I over did it. The colour of this one is very dark compared to what I would expect it to be.
But even still it’s got a great apple flavour. I need to figure out how much tea is good for my tea for one teapot from Davidstea. I always over leaf. Maybe just one perfect teaspoon? I dunno.
This is over a year old somehow… Either way, it still tastes fine, but when I made it the other night, it was bitter. I figure I either used too hot of water or steeped too long. If I remember correctly, I steeped for 3 minutes? But it wouldn’t surprise me if it was a combo of both.
So, I’ll try again and enjoy the small amount I have left.
My wonderful husband took me to our closest DavidsTea tonight for a treat (it’s an hr away). I asked him last week if I could finally treat myself to a glass teapot, as I’ve always LOVED the look of them, but have never ever owned one. I was always hesitate to buying one only ‘cause realistically I don’t need one, but I’ve always hoped to have one.
SO, we get there and the plan was to buy the teapot, buy some bamboozled, and then leave……. probably a good 30mins later, we finally left… maybe it was longer… I can’t remember. Either way, I was in heaven. I got to smell a bunch that I hadn’t yet and I decided after smelling this particular taste of heaven that I would try it as a to-go tea.
I was debating about purchasing some, but I’m so leery towards white teas ‘cause the flavour isn’t as strong and I’m so worried about burning the leaves.
So, I had this one to go.
I must say, this one is quite good! It is a more subtle flavour than most of the teas that I enjoy on a day to day basis (I’m a black tea drinker through and through, although I will also enjoy herbals and rooibos teas). The apple flavour was delicious. Not overpowering, but not under-whelming either. I picked up on an almost cinnamon flavour too.
I really enjoyed this tea. I don’t think I’d be daring enough to purchase some, as again, I’m not much of white tea drinker, but I did enjoy it. I could see this one also working quite well as an iced tea. I’d definitely give that a try too.
Tomorrow, I shall try out my new teapot. What I’m going to brew up, I don’t know, but I can’t wait to give it a try!
