Recent Tasting Notes
Oolong is fast becoming my favorite type of tea, and I was happy to see DAVIDs had done a blend with a familiar flavor. I knew it had to be mine. I expected it to be incredible, but I wasn’t expecting it to be so distinct on the schizandra berry front. I don’t get much earl grey taste at all, just dominant berry.
Not terrible, but not wonderful. Aside from Cherry Cola, this might be my least favorite offering from DAVIDs so far. And that’s OK, there’s bound to be 2 out of 50 I don’t adore.
I was very apprehensive about this tea when I first cut the bag open. It smelled horrid to me – which I was later informed is because gin smells that way and I don’t like gin – and I left this sit for a few days before I relented. It surprised me in how much I enjoyed it.
I was worried it would have an overpowering taste but it was very muted and pleasant. It did not need any enhancers added to it which was a plus to me as well. But, alas, it did not wow me. I will keep the bag and enjoy it at my leisure but no tin buy for this one.
I threw this on a pot before my night was slated to start and while waiting I casually inhaled the aroma of the bag. It smelled promising and it would be my first introduction to white tea so I kept my hopes up. What it ended up being was something subpar to my tastebuds.
I noticed immediately a bitter aftertaste. That usually does not bode well for me. After that it tasted so forgettable that I added a dreaded cube of sugar. That turned it into an even less impressive cup. After being disappointed I set it aside. A coworker expressed interest in it so I was happy to possibly swap it but overall I would not rebuy it. I won’t judge other white teas on it but I wish it was more exciting to me. The name was lovely!
I havent had this in a while so I decided to have this yesterday morning. I don’t know what it is but this does not taste as good as I remember. It tastes like soap. I couldn’t even finish my cup I had to dump it. Hopefully next time it will taste better and less like soap. Because I have a lot of this.
This tea is good but very touchy. It can become bitter very easily. I don’t have a way to get my water temperature so I have to let it cool and guess. I let the boiled water cool for a 1 min and 30 sec in the cup then I steep. Perhaps next time I will let it cool 2 mins.
This cup actually turned out decent. Nice white tea with a touch of blueberries. The after taste is still a bit bitter but not as bad as some other cups. I will get a hang of this tea and get it just right!
i had a sample of this one a while ago, i thought i reviewed it but i guess not!
i just got another 100g in the mail today, does that say enough?
this is probably one of the most amazing teas i’ve had from David’s since Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble!
tastes JUST like a banana chocolate pie, so delicious.
i feel like i’ve already had something from David’s that’s very similar to this tea…
regardless, it’s a very nice blend. the big chunks of chocolate leave a nice warm aftertaste, and the coconut makes it really smooth. the black tea is a nice base and not strong at all.
another tea to brew in a bag and not a metal strainer, as the coconut oils and chocolate bits gummed up my favourite one (my fault!)
a really tasty treat :)
I did something crazy today. I really like this pu’er but I felt like I was in the mood for something a bit loopy. I brewed it for the recommended 5 minutes—not my normal schtick with pu’er but I had PLANS for this brew. I then proceeded to add a heaping teaspoon of anisette sugar and a small pinch of espresso powder. It sounds insane but I love strong espresso with a splash (or more) of Sambuca and this reflected that yumminess perfectly.
Okay, so, I have never had a pu’erh tea before. I’m a reformed coffee drinker (3 cups a day) and I am still a little out of my element here. Completely happy and joyful about exploring the world of tea but still I’m like a giddy kid in a toy store. I want to try and try different teas all the time. It’s become an obsession.
I was a bit scared of pu’erh because who wouldn’t be scared of a tea that can smell like rotting fish. But it is one of the last teas I had to try from my order and it did smell good in the tin. I don’t know what the heck I was scared about because pu’erh is amazing. I steeped it 3 times because today was crazy and then my hockey team was playing and I can’t watch hockey without tea—it’s a luck thing.
1st Steep:Thankfully no fishy smell. It smelled like a really good dark roast coffee. Very earthy. It tastes that way too. But without the bitterness I associate with coffee. There was also a nice natural sweetness that I loved. The coffee bean lent a subtle flavor that was easily distinguished from the tea itself. More nutty than coffeeish.
2nd Steep: Still tasty. Less earthy and more sweet with more coffee bean nuttiness. It was the perfect balance of earthiness and sweet.
3rd Steep: The sweetness almost started to overpower the rest of the flavors. It’s reminiscent of brown sugar or molasses. I can barely taste the coffee bean which leaves the pu’erh to really take over.
I was initially very skeptical about pu’erh but I love it. I want to try more and more. Especially one without flavoring because I really like the flavor of the tea. Any suggestions?
