Recent Tasting Notes
Day 75(!!!) of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge. Catching up on the backlog once more.
The mix of chocolate, roses, and strawberries is certainly romantic in concept, and makes for an interesting (and tasty) tea.
I find this tea tastes best with milk. On its own, it seems too strong, and not exactly balanced. Milk adds a richness to it that makes everything come together perfectly. I would love to try this brewed as a milk tea and see if it’s as wonderful that way as I imagine, from what I know of it, that it would.
I generally enjoy this tea. The flavour combination is lovely. However, it oversteeps very easily. Being someone who enjoys strong tea steeped for a long period of time, this can be problematic for me. However, done in a teabag or ball, rather than loose and steeped just right, it’s a lovely tea.
I’ll start off by saying that I may be biased, as I am a HUGE Earl Grey fan. It’s my tea of choice. I’m London Fog obsessed.
Therefore – I quite enjoyed this tea!
The smell of it makes me want to give a higher rating, but I find it’s quite bitter and leaves the mouth dry more than other Earls I have consumed. The smell though.. wow. It’s amazing.
I just had it plain, nothing added, brewed hot. Had a little sample at my mother-in-law’s house.
I will probably purchase a small amount, 50 g I’m thinking, simply because I want to try it in a London Fog. Vanilla already added – me likey. I’ll rate again when that happens, perhaps my rating will go higher!
I decided to try this tea on a whim and I am not regretting my decision. If you enjoy a brisk, strong and flavourful cup of tee, then try this tea. A dash of milk is always a necessity for me when drinking this tea. It’s great for mornings when you need a kick to get ready for the day.
Very very flavourful!
A perfect iced tea flavour. Berries and berries!
Got it for my $1 tea today. The berry taste is juicy and tart, which I will admit is not my favorite taste, but for people into fruit teas – this one is excellent.
As a personal note, it’s too sour for me, I should have added a bit of sweetener maybe? I’ve had a bad history with herbal fruit teas, though, which have all been sour and bleh since I can remember, so I’m reminded of those unfortunately. Pretty sure that’s just by psychological taste buds though, don’t let that stop you from trying it!
Edit: I don’t know why, but I really want to use this as a base for a bbq sauce for chicken. There. I said it.
I loved the smell of Honeybee when I first tried it, but now it makes my nose tickle and my stomach turn, for whatever reason. I can’t find it enjoyable iced either. If it’s PIPING hot, I can manage to drink a cup if I’m fast enough to not let it cool. Maybe I just can’t dig the honeybush?
Now to figure out what to do with the last 1/4 of a tin!
I received a sample of The Skinny with my last David’s Tea order. Wait! Is David calling me fat?! In my defense, I’m wearing my laundry day sweat pants and they’re not the most flattering pair I own. David’s opinion of me aside, I’m always grateful to receive complimentary samples with my tea orders.
I’ve recently fallen deeply in love with oolong teas, so I was very excited to try this one. The Skinny has a very strong herbal scent dry. At first sip… yeah, this tea isn’t for me. I don’t know if it’s the ginger, the pu’erh, or the extreamly woodsy flavor but I don’t think I can finish the cup. Hopefully, what I was able to drink will help to cancel out the English muffin with extra preserves I ate for breakfast.
Interesting tea. I wanted a green tea tonight and didn’t want Lime Gelato or Movie Night so I went with this one. Not sure how I feel about it. When it was hot it was ok but once it cooled some the hints of chocolate and mint were really nice. Not sure if I will replace this one when I run out but it was pretty good. I may try it iced tomorrow and see how that is.
Enjoying some “Ol’ Reliable” after the worst day at work.
I made a booboo. A big one. Not a money related one (I don’t care about those when I work for a big business – well I care but not in a way that haunts my every waking moment haha) – but one that affected a customer in a bad way :(
I feel so bad, I apologized profusely.. but it didn’t change the fact. I’m also not looking forward to the consequences when I get back to work after labour day.
Ah well, we’re only human right?
Minty black chocolately goodness will get me back on track. This tea, plus I just discovered this hilarious online game called Drawception – it’s a mix between telephone and pictionary. Here’s an example of one I participated in:
It’s really fun, you should comment below if you gave it a try :D
So! As they say – tomorrow is a latter day. :) Things will look up!
so SO happy to have this back in my collection. and Fresh!
I had saved a tiny amount for months and months and it got stale, bleh. Fresh is good.
I made some iced tea today, hot over ice. I definitely prefer a coldbrew for this one (and other teas with melty bits). I just don’t like the cloudy “texture” of this tea when brewed hot then chilled – but I know the flavour is just as delicious when I coldbrew – so I’ll do that next time!
Just have to think in advance ;)
This tea is hitting the high mark today.
I’m out of it, but my (almost) mother in law stocked up the other day so I get to indulge. I am having such a stressful time here! I hate loathe dislike and despise phoning strangers. Of course, I have to phone a lot of strangers in Halifax today to try to get an apartment. So far it’s proved fruitless, but adding more phone numbers to my list doesn’t give me hope, it stresses me out.
Anyways, thank you Read My Lips, for always being an awesome cup of tea no matter what I do to you.
Here goes nothing!
A quick coldbrew note!
I have learned that chocolate teas work wonderfully for cold brews. The taste was intense – chocolate and mint with a smooth tea base, no sweetener needed. The lips turned this tea a lovely red. Another iced tea for royalty!
My usual coldbrew – 1.5 teaspoons for one 12 ounce container, steeped over night in the fridge.
So I finally bought 100g tin of this, yay me!
I’ve never tried it hot before, and with Taryn going on everyday I had had enough of resisting! I needed it!
MMM chocolate-y, MINTY and teeny tiny peppery I love it! MMM so smooth and the mint is just right.
Imagine my dismay when I let my tea-despising coworker smell it and she HAD to try it (she thinks tea tastes like hot water). Yes! Now is my converting time, this tea will be perfect for her! So I make up a perfect cup, steep for 6 minutes for full flavour (no bitterness, I love this tea!) add a teeny tiny bit of agave to enhance the sweetness, and off it goes!
I email her… yeah it tastes like bland hot water to her. She was happy to try it, but fears her tastebuds are to blame. I am in total dismay :(
Oh well. More for me!
Dare I say better cold than hot?
No, that’s just the Saskatchewan summer talking haha.
It is delicious as an iced tea though! The mint is light and extremely refreshing, and the chocolate flavour comes out wonderfully with every sip. Mm.
I saw it on the sign and didn’t even look at the second option. Nice and sweet with no sweetener added, it’s a perfect distraction from my week-long apartment move across the city. Amen to that.
I have the adorable Taryn to thank for sending me a this yummy tea. I cold steeped this lovely for two hours and it made for a very refreshing treat. This tea smells like sweet, ripe mangos dry. At first sip, I get a wonderful mango flavor that moves into a clean white tea with citrus tones. The finish is sweet and fruity. I’ve had some bad luck with bitter white teas lately, but I’m happy to report that this white is not the slightest bit bitter when cold steeped.
I was really surprised at how tasty this one turned out to be. I’m not always happy with the flavour of herbal blend teas. It turned out to just sweet enough, fruity, and didn’t taste like something you’d find in cold medicine.
Very happy with my purchase, it’s a nice alternative to tea when I want to drink something fruity without the standard “tea” flavour.
