Recent Tasting Notes
Just beautiful! Reminds me of summer with it’s fruit punchy taste and scent. Delicious and good for you? Can it be?
The after taste is quite different, its almost like there is something spicy underneath, I want to say cinnamon but I can’t quite put my finger on what it is.
This tea shall be added to my favourites.
Mmmmm. This is my Grandma’s butter cookie-press cookies. It smells like them, it tastes like them…and I only want to have it around his time of year XD.
That cardamom…why are you in there? I’d enjoy this tea much more if it were gone…I might just pick out the remaining pods. Also, I feel like the marketing could have been so much better on this one. I expected something like a fruit punch out of this. A description about almond cookies or some such would have been much better, in my opinion. But what do I know? ;)
But as others have said, this is just a big cup of beautiful almond-y goodness.
This tea tastes exactly like the fruity, yellow Trident gum. I think it’s passion berry or tropical twist or something or other. It smells like it, too. I love it to bits, and it’s certainly part of my permanent collection. I don’t know if it does anything to keep me from being angry, but it definitely tastes absolutely delicious. I’m in love with the citrus-y floral flavour, and I actually quite like that I can’t put my finger on exactly what I’m tasting at each moment. As long as it makes me feel good and happy, it’s doing its job.
As a side note, contrary to what another person said, this tea doesn’t make me sleepy. But I’ve found that certain ingredients in tea definitely have different effects on different people, so try it out for yourself and see what happens :-)
I am easily persuaded by postings of recipes.
Okay for a second can I just gush about where I live? It gets a lot of flack for outsourcing basically everything (ie garbage/recycling pickup is not done by the city so residents contract a private company to do it, 911 operations is shared with another city). Yesterday, one of the red lights was out on my street, so I downloaded an app the city has to report it and now I have learned it keeps me notified of all the steps along the way to it being fixed. It almost makes me want to stop using Atlanta as my location for everything. Almost.
Okay, recipe. http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidstea/7166379689/in/set-72157629044618825/ This sounded good right about now, so I decided to make it. Except it turns out coconut milk (at least the kind in a carton for milk replacement purposes) does not froth very well. It’s just sort of like, yay let’s make giant bubbles! And that’s about it.
It’s still really good in here. I used more milk than necessary and probably more chocolate syrup than necessary to make chocolate milk, but right now I just really needed chocolate. Someone in my building really likes loud music and I can hear it so perhaps my need to make this recipe was assisted by the need to make more noise by frothing milk…you didn’t hear it from me.
I pretty much had a falling out with this tea because it just wasn’t tasting as good anymore to me hot. But oh man I am loving it this way. Despite what probably sounds like my best efforts to just make chocolate milk with a bit of tea in it, the tea is definitely present. I guess that’s the good part about the puerh, I’m pretty sure if this was a plain old black tea, I would have made chocolate milk. And the orange flavor is still discernable.
I must have like 15g left and at this point I’m not sure if I will buy it again, but I’ll enjoy it while I have it.
I’m so glad this is permanent now because chocolate oranges are way too good to be relegated to one time of year. Besides, legitimate chocolate oranges are kind of overpriced now and this really tastes just like one anyway.
I have two awful assignments to do for tomorrow and I decided I would drink this instead. It’s far less maddening and doesn’t ask stupid questions.
This is AMAZING. It smells just like chocolate oranges. It even tastes like it too!
I wasn’t sure about this at first because I am a bit put off by pu-erh but I can’t even taste much of it at all. I steeped it for 3 minutes, and the package says 4-6. Or I might actually like it, but I’m pretty sure it’s covered by the awesome flavors. I am definitely getting a lot of orange mixed with chocolate. It seriously even tastes like those chocolate oranges.
I’m pretty sure I’m not supposed to want one now. But it’s for research purposes, of course.
Thanks to Jenn for a sample of this!
This is a good choice for an afternoon tea. I am getting mostly white tea with lots of chamomile and a tiny bit of mango. I don’t really taste much butter or cream but it is very sweet smelling. This is one I liked better after adding soymilk to it. It’s nice but I don’t think I would buy it for myself.
Well, I had to cut my way into another tin… I couldn’t get the lid to screw off. David’s – I LOVE these tins, but please make sure they work!
Smelling it in the tin, I was curious. I could smell the vanilla and I had high hopes! Buuuuut brewed… it smells like rot. Rotting wood or something. I’m so disappointed. I can’t stand it. I’ve taken a few sips, but I’ll be pouring the rest out. :(
This is my day #14 of the David’s Tea “24 Days of Tea” advent calendar.
I messed up terribly. Especially with money. Because of tea, most likely. Okay, for sure. So I need to ignore you for a long, long time. Badly.
If we’ve started talking a swap, we’ll still complete it. I’ll still be here for the tea boxes, those I for sure can’t ignore or leave. I missed a credit card payment. Twice. I barely have money as is because I don’t work, and I also just messed up school and at this point I don’t even know if I can keep going, which is an even bigger problem for money.
I’m working on applying to stuff, it’s kind of hard when you have an ear infection.
update if you were interested in buying tea Anyway, all the tea I had to swap, I put it here to sell: I figure it makes more sense than an auction first (thanks for the idea CJ). http://twominutesforbaking.net/2013/05/21/tea-for-sale/ I’ll be home all day so I can keep an eye on it and I’ll go now to look through the rest of my stuff so it’s all posted there.
Also if you ever wanted to buy stuff from my etsy shop I’d really appreciate it right now.
So after feeling like a total miserable fool I thought I needed something sweet, something I’ve loved, yet I’ve ignored in the midst of all this tea. I can’t believe how long it’s been since this one has seen the outside of the cabinet.
In that time though I have come to dislike rooibos a bit. Ok, a lot. While it smells good in the bag, brewed up it has the rooibos scent of taste bud death. I think it’s lost that mapley goodness. Though I do have some maple granules I could add to bring it back. I don’t have much of this left so that will do.
So that’s about it, I’ll miss you, but I need to get off the path of self-destruction.
I want to declare this my most favorite (or should I say favourite?) tea now. When I need more of it, I am so getting the giant bag+tin.
I just love to steep this as long as possible so all the leaf candies melt. It’s so sweet, maple and caramel are like my two favorite forms of sugars so that is why I love this tea so much.
So apparently my favorite hockey team is run by drama queens who took a player out MID-GAME AND SENT HIM OFF because they traded him. So to enjoy all the ridiculous rumors right now, like he’s going to 3 different teams, I figured this was a fitting tea as they are the Canadiens.
This is still super tasty, and somewhat of a soothing thing to drink so you do not blow up at people on the internets because you are too busy being like “it’s like drinking maple syrup!” to be mad. Now if only I could give it to people through the internet so they calm down…
I love Canada. I mean my favorite hockey team is the Canadiens. When I tell people I like hockey and Formula 1 they think I am Canadian (although really that always seemed more Finnish to me? And it was only after I said F1 that the Canadian question came up, surprisingly.) So when I first found out about this tea I knew I had to get some. I decided to blow all my birthday money on a big order and it came today and I immediately had to make Oh Canada right out of the box.
Let’s see, how many ways could this become my favorite tea (and make me start saying favourite)? I love rooibos, I love sprinkles, I love maple syrup, I love caramel.
And yes, I do love this. It’s sweet, but not cloying. It’s not something I would drink everyday and definitely not something I will drink at 5:30pm again anytime soon.
It tastes like maple syrup more than anything. I get a bit of caramel, but most of all I get a need to take another sip each time I stop. This tea and I are going to get along very well.
FINALLY finished off the last of this… and ended up having the entire tea latte guzzled by my 2-year-old when I wasn’t looking! Looks like I have a fellow tea-lover in my midst, one that’s barely 3 feet tall. It’s a good thing we finished this tea too since I could definitely taste some staleness happening…
Our landlords are useless. Mice in the walls? Nothing is done, so we have to buy traps and catch them. Stove blows up? Still waiting on that one. Front & back walkways need to be shoveled? They leave shovels here for us to do it. The worst part? They’re my best friends parents, which means that even if we find another place I will still probably see them around.
So, for the past 20 minutes I have been outside, shoveling the walkway to the apartment that I am paying to live in when they should be paying me to do their job. I came inside and decided to reward myself by brewing up a cup of this tea. Yeah, I deserve it.
I’m not familiar with pu’erhs, having never tried one before, so I’m not sure how this one rates on that scale. On my scale, this tea is pretty freakin’ amazing! I’m not really a fan of those chocolate oranges, but I’m a fan of this tea! One thing though, I tried this in-store and the chocolate came through much more, but now that I have it at home I find it’s more orange-y. Not a horrible thing, just wish I tasted more chocolate.
I’ve had this for a while but somehow never got around to trying it. I only bought 20 grams, but it is such a light tea that I got one of those little silver bags DT uses almost full. The smell of the dry leaves is fairly typical black tea, in my opinion. The steeped smell however, is a different beast. I smell honeyed notes, a natural sweetness that I LOVE to find in my black teas. Honestly I am in the mood for something with cococa notes, but I don’t think this will suit that need. Also, I’m having some almonds with this, so we’ll see what impact that has!
Almonds aside, this was surprisingly mild. I get a honeyed sweetness in the taste, but it’s not overbearing. There is no bitterness at all, and this is a very smooth tea. I don’t know that I can pick out any specific flavours, but I am loving this. It’s a nice easy drinking black tea, the kind that would make a good companion to a lazy afternoon with a great book. MMmmm…
I am drinking this tea alongside some dark chocolate. It feels like such an indulgence!
The tea is a little more metalic than I’d like; I have a feeling I had the water slightly too hot, even though I let it cool several minutes before pouring.
But. It smells amazing, buttery and grassy and a little roasted; actually it reminds me of nuts a bit. And the colour is amazing. And I know how wonderful this tea can be. I’m glad I managed to snag some of this for free; I will enjoy going through it, especially if I can perfect my steeping method.
