Recent Tasting Notes
OK…let me tell you, when the winter collection came out…as a newbie to this tea thing I RAN to the store to get it to try it out, I tried Hot Tobaggan and loved it. Today while I was working on my computer, I decided to brew a pot of Alpine Punch. The smell was to die for and yes this smelled and tasted like warm Amaretto without getting the effect. I am so loving this tea that I think I will be making a stop for a tin…it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside
Repurchased this because my hubby’s sinuses bother him during the colder months. The combination of peppermint, ginger and black pepper does the trick for him. Plus I believe the hojicha is a bit lower in caffeine, so since he works late it’s okay to make a pot of this when he comes home.
Personally, it has definitely grown on me. Not a favourite, but I like the spice combination. Some of the other teas you can get for the sniffles have ingredients I don’t like. Such as Gail’s Cold Remedy, which has lemon grass (gross!).
So overall I like this tea, but if I drink it too often it can rub me the wrong way. I increased the rating from last time, because it’s a cold season staple in our home.
i’m sad this tea got discontinued, replaced by Lime Gelato (a worthy contender, but…), not before i ordered a tin online, silently rejoicing as it had been popping off and on the website for a few weeks before it was gone for good. i know it’s just the idea of gunpowder over ‘regular’ green tea that makes me love it so much more (i’m a sucker for pretty packaging/great names), but this is definitely a tea to savour. an excellent green tea flavour with those hints of apple and lime. perfect for my tastes! and good for a re-steep, or two if i’m lucky.
Drinking this (hot) during my lunch break. Yes, it’s gotten to the point where I’m on Steepster at work. * Hangs head in shame *
Another of the DT teas that has a way better description than actual taste. I like the smell (even though its candy peach rather than real peach). I don’t notice the yogurt in this tea. Well, I don’t notice it flavour-wise, but I definitely notice the tiny white floating bits it leaves behind. Unattractive.
I find this tea slightly better with milk (damn whoever finished that off!), but I’ll probably just keep the rest until next summer for iced teas. Glad I didn’t buy much of this one!
i love cranberry pear. I am loving a lot of the new teas from DAVIDsTEA right now.
I really don’t like cranberries but it smelled so enticing i had to! Oooh i’m not good with temptations ;p The cranberries in here are not tart at all, it tastes a lot more like.. cranberry sauce-y. or like ice wine! very sweet. the pear in it is gorgeous. so smooth, so creamy, so luxurious! Makes the whole ordeal so elegant. This can be a lot of fun when iced because it is so fruity, my friend liked it iced much better. I will have it hot though thank you, makes me feel very pretty :)! and also getting over my dislike of cranberry makes me feel so much more. ZEN! zing! haha! i’m in a silly mood. I’ll stop writing now
Do you get cupcake cravings at 11pm~3am? I do! ALL the friggin time!
Is there a beautiful cupcake available at this hour or am i crafty enough to make one at home? NOPE. This usually results in grumpy moi and the unhappiness also gets to my boyfriend and, i believe my cat.
I have found my fix.
Buttercream!! I love you :D
I hate chamomile so i was reluctant at first, but this tea is a blessing! I drink this in the evening so i can ease into sleepy mode and BAM! add a little milk to it once i start craving cupcake! BOOM BAAM BLAM! there’s my fix. I love this tea. you could probably tell by the sound effect. Very creamy. Makes me feel like a million dolla getting my cupcake fix with 0 calories. This tea is a godsent <3
Very nice. I think the orange and chocolate both come through really nicely in this (and it smells incredible!). Very smooth, creamy, and rich. What I didn’t really taste was pu’erh! Not much characteristic pu’erh taste, though it tastes like a robust and smooth Chinese black. It made an excellent nighttime tea.
What an odd looking tea! Like coffee grounds or something, I wonder how they get it that way?
Again, another $1 straight tea… I’m trying to get in as many as I can before the deal is over in a few days! I can’t really say anything that hasn’t been said before about this tea: it definitely calls for milk and sugar or honey, don’t steep too long or it gets a bit “strong” in flavour, I think it could make a lovely chai (if mixed with the right spices), and it is another tea that is much better than David’s Orange Pekoe. Satisfying and rich.
“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!
I am in a desperate fit of procrastination (hence me being on Steepster instead of working on my term paper). At least logging makes my procastination a bit less… useless. Right?
On to the tea (second steep).
First impressions – The loose leaf smells like cranberries, oranges and all things Christmas. Well, minus the turkey. It is a beautiful tea full of color and texture. I would decorate my room in this tea.
Flavor – MMMMMmmmmmm. Love it. While there are plenty of fruits in this tea mix, the fruity aromas are balanced by a strong and slightly bitter green tea. If I really try, I can pick out the orange, cranberry and raisins, but I’d much rather enjoy the wonderful blend that it presents.
Loveability – All of my newly converted to tea friends didn’t understand how Elf Help is part of the winter collection. “But, Kay’s been drinking it all year!”
Please, everyone, buy some so that DT has reason to bring it back every year. Pretty please?
