Recent Tasting Notes
This is my first review here, but the second time I’ve had this tea. The first time I made a note that it smelled and tasted a bit chemically to me, and I only found it decent after adding both cane sugar and almond milk.
I tried it again tonight, and added a touch of stevia while brewing. I like it a bit better this time around, but don’t plan on purchasing more when I finish this. I think I was hoping for less rooibos and more creme taste.
This tin of rooibos is one of the “originals” from my initial first purchase at David’s Tea. Age has not weakened its resolve to invade entire rooms with its “stench” whenever I prepare it- it may even have made it stronger!
Despite owning this for over year I still have yet to figure out if I love it or merely tolerate it. Coconut and monstrous lavender carry both the scent and flavour profile. Sometimes that comes off as yummy creamy, floral, and mint-like, other-times it simply makes me nauseous in a soap and perfume guzzling way. I wonder what would happen if I bathed in this olfactory titan.
Although I have mixed feelings on the taste, it never fails to make me nostalgic of my first days of loose leaf purchasing. Back then I bought 100g tins of everything and was on a mission to obtain every tea and tisane that even mentioned coconut. If it weren’t for my obsession with coconut, the whispers of a delicious coconut tea at Murchies, and the continuous “sold out” status of said tea, I would never have begun exploring in the first place. My love of coconut and tea are deeply connected to each other.
Today, I find myself enjoying this rooibos blend. When it’s like this I always wonder why I don’t drink it all the time. I’ve yet to try other lavender blends but this one has always made me curious to try more.
Still unsure about this tea but it would feel so wrong not to have it around after our long history together. It’s odour would always be noticeably absent. :(
I bought this awhile ago, tried it and didn’t really care for it. I love banana flavouring when it’s super strong and I must have understeeped it because the flavour was too weak for me.
This tea was calling my name today and I figured I’d give it another shot. I was very surprised at how much I liked this. I added a bit of agave to give it an extra kick and I’m thinking that next time I’ll try adding hazelnut agave.
The banana flavour is very authentic and the nuttiness fills it out nicely. As much as I like it, I don’t think I’ll buy it again because it’s expensive (darn heaviness!) and I doubt that I can get more than one decent steep out of it. That aside, it is delicious!
Edited to add: Okay, the resteep was pretty decent. Sigh, why do I ever doubt you, DavidsTea?
So i may have taken a 3 hour break from work to go out with my other half as it’s a SUPER quiet day and he has today off. Had some of this while we were out. While it’s not a bad cup, i am still not a fan of that consistent taste that most of david’s tea flavoured teas seem to have. i wonder if it’s stevia. Who knows. so not a bad cup but i still don’t feel the need to keep an david’s tea in the house! :)
So I decided that it was time to get this into my collection, so I got 50grams, yay!!! I got it on Valentines, as I thought it appropriate, seeing how it is ever so chocolatey a tea. I also packed this on my trip to vermont and enjoyed it with my breakfast one morning. I am so glad to be able to taste tea again. order had been restored !
So I tried this tea on Christmas eve and yesturday while visiting a david’s tea store. For a while I have been looking for a tea that has that chocolately soemthing that I wanted. And this makes me happy. I think I finally found it. Funny thing is that I didn’t notice the chocolate, my fiancee did. It really is just a delicious tea, no wonder is is the tea of the month for december. :) It really is a wintery treat.
So, because I liked this tea so much from when I got it for my sister, I decided to go out and get some for myself. I made this tea monday january 21 for on the go for school. I don’t recommend doing this as I couldn’t throw away the leaves after steeping. It kind of got really strong. Even though it was strong, the nice light jasmine flavour came in, but it was almost completely overpowered by the bitterness of over-steeping white tea.
I’m not going to say this is my favorite tea, but of the other teas in my office this one has a label that says “medium caffeine” while the others say “low caffeine”. I’m trying to ween myself off of caffeine, and as much as I love my tea…I’m also a guilty coffee/energy drink drinker. This is such a painful withdrawl and I’m open to any and all suggestions you have to offer. I can promise that none of my clients/employer meetings today are getting my A Game.
First things first, I love my tea friends. I love that I have tea friends and I love talking to you, swapping with you, reading about every tea you drink. I hope I get to met every single one of you someday because you make my work days easier and my off days relaxing.
Into this tea, I’ve always been a fan but I learned today that if I brew it a little longer I get a creamier caramel flavor and a buttery type of mouth feel. If you’re one of the people who is under pleased by this tea, steep it like a minute longer. Yummmm, I want more now.
I got this in a swap recently and was so excited to try it. I admit it, I love Teavana’s CocoCaramel Sea Salt herbal tea, so I had to. The first cup I had I brewed it too long,forgetting it wasn’t also an herbal but it didn’t get too bitter for me. Through both brewings I could taste the caramel, not so much the sea salt. The second time I brewed it I got a little more of the sea salt taste, but I still taste it much more in Teavana’s blend.
As much as I wanted to like this better than Teavana’s, it just didn’t do it enough for me. So thankfully, Teavana has their heavenly sale right now and I got a pound of CocoCaramel Sea Salt for like $15. Funny how they can still make a profit with tea less than $1 an ounce though…hmmmm…
Forever Nuts definitely caught me by surprise. First you taste cinnamon, then a hint of apple? It is slightly sweet but very light and calming. The taste of roasted nuts is delicious! The color is vibrant pink from the beet root. Nice before bed time. A tea everyone must try.
