Recent Tasting Notes
Hands down, one of my favourite herbals ever. It feels like I’ve been waiting for this tea to come back in stock for forever, and now that it has, well. Excuse me, out of my way, I need to hoard.
Dry, there’s this beautifully creamy, vegetal, vanilla-y smell. And brewed? There’s still all of that cream and vanilla, but there’s also a swampy, green kind of taste that reminds me, without fail, of the pennywort juice I used to drink while growing up. Come be in my cupboard, Mulberry Magic. Let us never be parted again.
I got a small sample of this leaf from DJ Booth (thanks!) in exchange for some Black Dragon (I hope you like it!) and I’m glad for the chance to try it.
The dry leaf has almost no aroma at all.
The wet leaf has a strong earthy smell, but more like a wuyi oolong than a pu-erh. That odd kind of pong that some oolong get. I’ve mentioned it on other notes on other teas.
Oddly, the cup itself is not entirely unlike Yunnan golden, just a bit more umph and a bit less fruit. In fact, it tastes almost exactly like what you’d get if you blended wuyi oolong leaf with Yunnan golden.
I’m not 100% sure the combination works for my tastes. But this is great leaf and I’m looking forward to cycling through all the steepings for more insights. I find first steep is rarely typical.
The aroma of this tea is wonderful! The chocolate is pronounced and you can smell the spice. Unfortunately, the smell does not match the taste. I don’t know if I brewed this wrong, but it seems to be pretty weak. I even added more tea leaves and made sure the water was at a sufficient temperature. It got a bit darker, but not much. I was hoping this one would be full bodied. I’m glad this was a sample, otherwise I would have been sorely disappointed.
Woke up this morning with a rage for something sweet, so I rummaged through my tea collection only to remember this gem, which I’d bought in-store and had never tried!
As with most of DAVIDsTEA’s puerhs, don’t oversteep it, as it gets fishy pretty fast. 4-5 minutes is perfect. Otherwise, make sure the water’s warm enough to melt all that chocolate – and boy is there chocolate in there.
The steeped product smells and tastes delicious, if a bit too sweet (then again, I don’t get these sugar rages often).
Darn. I really had high hopes for this one because DT usually does a good job with citrusy teas (Elf Help, Midsummer Night’s Dream, etc). I am disappointed with this one. I can tell they used a Japanese green tea instead of a chinese tea because of the nutty/grassy taste that comes out…I find it really overpowering. I don’t taste the orange at all…just green tea :(
We used up the last of our sample of this to share a pot yesterday morning and I enjoyed it! It was good and refreshing and something I find myself craving occasionally. It’s lemony, but not overly tart. While I don’t feel the need to get a tin and stock up, I wouldn’t mind having some around to dip in to occasionally. This is a restock for me, but only a little one.
This one would be glorious if the hibiscus weren’t as tart. Sigh. It’s fruity and juicy, but then the hibiscus steps in and crashed the tasty party with its tartness. It’s good, and if you’re a fan of hibiscus, this tea is definitely one I would recommend, but it is not the tea for me. It’s sad because I keep taking sips, loving how good the tea is until the hibiscus takes over, but then it’s so tart it turns my stomach. Sadness.
Not rating because I went into it knowing that I wouldn’t like the hibiscus.
The smell of this tea has the nicest smell. It’s very spicy but the pumpkin adds a sweet flavour as well.
The flavour is a bit weaker than I thought it would be, but it has made the very top of my list. It is my ultimate tea.
Also as far as super adorable things go, this tea also has candy pumpkin pieces in it. So it looks nice, tastes nice, and smells nice.
I will never get sick of this tea and I drink it everyday!
I like this tea, not love it, but I like it. The dry scent of the leaves really draw me in, just because of it’s sweet and fresh smell (to me anyway).
When steeped, I found that this tea is OK, maybe I don’t like the red rooibos that much. I think if the tea was made with green rooibos, I would like it better. The round flavour of the red rooibos is overpowering at times and I barely taste the sweetness from the pineapple/other flavours.
Overall I like it just because I really like the smell and taste. Unfortunately it’s not a favourite :(
The fragrance and name of this tea are a bit misleading. The “Mulberry” refers to the leaves in the tea base. There is macadamia nuts in it that you couldn’t really smell.
When this tea is steeped it tastes like macadamia nuts, which I have only ever had in macadamia nut cookies. So this tea reminds me of drinking a cup of hot cookies! However it’s calorie and sugar free so I can have as much as I want.
The colour of this tea is gross! Full on, an unappetizing shade of swamp green. This deters me from drinking it out of my glass thermos and serving it to friends, but whateves…more for me.
I love this tea! My ultimate all nighter tea. As far as chai teas go I’d say it’s pretty standard. I prefer my chai teas a pit more cinnamony.
The energy it gives me is absolutley worth it not being my favorite chai taste (not that it’s gross, just a bit bland)
It holds milk well which makes for good chai lattes.
Also try as a latte with chocolate milk.
Just listened to my roomate talk about what an amazing device this was, and how he’s excited it was so cheap, but he would have paid way more for it. It’s easy to use and easy to clean and you don’t get any leafy bits in your tea cup, which is cool. Just thought I’d post a good review on his behalf…however I also love this steeper more than any human should love a tea machine.
