First of all: to my swap friends! I have a few swaps ready to send out (I have everything prepared for everyone I am swapping with at the moment), but our car is in the shop! D: That’s my main way to get to the post, but I’m hoping to send them out on Saturday (which means they will ship out on Monday, bleh! Apologies for the lateness, but know that I care so much about my steepster family!\
However I don’t care much for this tea.
Too similar in flavour to Gail’s Gold Remedy, I feel like I should be sick. and I adoore ginger, but I think more in food than in tea.
The puerh does give the tea a great earthy base that is quite unique, but sadly, not my tea of choice – no matter how good it is for me.
On a better note, I’ve been taking the stairs at work instead of the elevator! woop.
Day 1 of DavidsTea advent calendar!
I’m worried that I may have made the tea a bit too weak, but am enjoying it nonetheless. The tea smells like melty mints — a scent that reminds me of Christmas, though not in a traditional sense.
The mint and chocolate come through strongest in the taste as well, though I wish that everything were stronger. There’s a lovely hint of sweetness due to the candy, but the tea doesn’t come across as sweet — this more counters any bitterness that could otherwise appear.
Hopefully a stronger brew will enhanse this tea, but it certainly doesn’t taste bad weak either.
I did enjoy this tea, however I found the flavour did not match the scent, that is until I added some splenda. I found that once I added some sweetness it started to taste exactly how I wanted it, sweet and Carmel like. Without the splenda it has more of the green tea taste.
I absolutely love this tea! I have a cup every morning on my way to class very reminiscent of Terry’s chocolate orange.
I’m a big chocolate lover and I’ve found that this is a great substitute for anybody wanted to stay away from sweets. Totally takes care of the craving!
Ah, newbies at DavidsTea, you’re so cute. Yes, I am aware of the tea of the month, and I am aware of some old classics like Buttered Rum and Cream of Earl Grey. And yes, I’ve tried all of the winter teas, and yes I am aware that Fantasy Island is coming back from the dead. All easily forgivable, how are they supposed to know I’m a DT fangirl?
However, I was offered a sample of this and it was horrible. Tart as sin. The hibiscus completely took over until I couldn’t taste any of the other ingredients she insisted on rattling off. Seriously, I tasted absolutely nothing but hibiscus. So if you’re like me and can’t stand the stuff, please do try this tea, but not in-store and be sure to keep an eye on the steep time.
(not adjusting my rating because it’s not the tea’s fault, bless its little heart.)
I was very wary of this tea, but no more! This is ddelicious! It warming and fruity and delicious. I definitely agree with this tea being a combination of Forever Nuts and Kanpe, but I’m a fan of both of those teas, so it’s all good. I’m glad I have 50 g of this! It’s a bit heavy, so I appreciate the price point of $7 per 50 g.
So I busted open my DT 24 Days of Tea today, and this is the first one. It. Smells. Delicious. If it tastes even half as good as it smells, this is going on my shopping list. Chocolate mint is such a lovely smell.
It is good. Not as strong on the chocolate, much heavier on the mint. But the mint doesn’t drown out the tea taste. So it’s all good. Its a pretty smooth cup, a bit of astringency, but nothing too significant. The mint smell just wafts off of the cup. If you don’t like minty teas, this is not one for you. It really is the dominant flavor note. I think I’m in love!
Ommm nom nom nom nom nom. nom. nom. nom. (Sung to the tune of “fa la la la la”.)
This could easily become a seasonal substitute for eggnog, especially with a touch of soymilk. Gosh this is good! So so so good. This and Jessie’s Tea (which I’ll probably drink more of just because I’m sure if I drink as much of this, the black tea will serve me with a heart attack) are really similar and both just so darn delicious!
I was starting to get nervous that I wasn’t enjoying as many of the teas in the calendar, but then Santa’s Sleigh Ride and this happened, and my faith has been restored!
This is my day #12 of the David’s Tea “24 Days of Tea” advent calendar.
Found this in the back of my cupboard and couldn’t remember if I had tried this yet.
Having tried it now i’m pretty sure i would have remmbered if i did!
this takes citrus to the max, i get citrus and i get more pepper than peppermint.
I like this but i don’t see myself buying anymore I guess i’m just not a citrus person.
This tea must be magic!
I completely forgot about it while my 13.5-month-old threw a fit about not being able to climb on the bookcases. Sigh. I nearly panicked when I realised that it’d been steeping for nearly 20 minutes and I only have a limited supply left. Amazingly, it was still warm, creamy and delicious. No need to add milk or sugar.
It’s a Christmas miracle… just not Christmas anymore…
I should’ve known better than to have that piece of cranberry cake… I paid for it in the middle of the night with stomach spasms. That’s what I get for being gluten-intolerant!
This morning, to avoid a relapse of symptoms, I’m gingerly eating a bowl of oatmeal and nursing a cup of this; in the hopes that the peppermint, cloves and cinnamon work their magic and soothe my stomach. So far, so good… the mintiness of the tea definitely pairs nicely with my cranberry-almond oatmeal.
Fingers crossed that Santa’s Secret will be my secret weapon against more spasms today.
“Hey little girl, do you want to know a see-ca-ret? Cuz I know one, and it is sooooo good to hear it…”
I was wearing a poppy today, so I got a free tea and I chose this over Mulberry Magic since I haven’t tried this yet. Reminds me a lot of Read My Lips, but with a much smoother mintiness and no chocolate. More akin to candy canes and peppermint, for sure!
A nutty green tea. From the bag you don’t smell much at all. I thought this would be a very light fruity tea, but I was wrong! Yun Cui has a grassy and nutty flavour to it—unfortunately not a fan of it. When steeped the tea is very light in colour, but has a mild taste. If you like Sencha Ashikubo, you might like this one too!
I often drink this in powdered form. What I would do is take the powder, put it in my water bottle and shake for my mate drink. I would usually drink this cold.
Fast forward to now where I am drinking this hot. I actually like the taste that comes out more…very roasted and delicious. This tea definitely has potential. I don’t really know how to describe this…it’s has a very nice flavour to it! I am not a fan of the frequent bathroom trips though.
Sadly, this tea is done. Today’s cup is the last of the 50g I ordered from David’s Tea. I am very sad to see it go, it is a wonderful tea. One of my favorites from DT, in fact. Malty and rich, it hits the spot for this former morning coffee drinker. After I tried Assam Banaspaty, it quickly became my go-to for the mornings, which is why it is gone so fast. Now I has a sad. I won’t be re-ordering it immediately, mainly because I want to place an order from Upton in the near future and want to try some of their Assams (must try more!).
I drank this one this morning instead of my DT offering because I really wanted a black tea. A bit of astringency this time, with vague hints of cocoa as I poured the cup. It smelled lovely and tasted lovely to boot. I’m quite happy with this tea. I do now want to try more Assams.
