27 Tasting Notes
My favorite straight black from DAVIDsTEA (even though I’ve only tried three in store). The light honey flavor mixes in perfectly with the black tea (it’s hard to believe the taste is actually from the tea and there is no added honey). So soothing. No astringency on the first steep (I didn’t notice any). Tasted even better on the third steep.
This is not a very memorable tea. And I’m so upset because my favorite thing is SALTED CARAMEL and well..anything caramel. Sometimes it’s okay. But it tastes very oily in a way. It’s really hard to explain. Something’s just not right and it has so much potential. It’s even worse as a latte, which is unbelievable. It smells great though.
I sound like I hate it but I don’t. Just disappointed.
Can you say wow? I don’t get wowed often but this tea does it for me every time. Iced or Hot. And great with milk. I can’t get tired of this one ever since David’s Tea opened. As you drink it, you can make out the chocolate more and more, but the minty-ness is always there. The black tea complements the whole very well. Buy some.
So what can I say about this one?
It is very tasty as a latte (95/100) but mediocre as a regular tea (70/100). None of the flavors stand out or wow me. With some steamed milk (1/3 cup), however, the coconut is prominent and some vanilla as well! An odd complaint that I have is that the freshness of the tea went away really quickly, so I’m not sure of the quality of the ingredients. Might have to buy this in a tin next time.
I’ll also add that maybe I just suck at steeping tea because it tastes better when I have it in store (I’m talking about this tea). Weird!
This tea… this tea!
I had tried it last fall in store twice (latte first time, regular tea second) and I didn’t enjoy it either time. I felt as though it was too weak and I couldn’t taste much of anything except for some spices which I couldn’t even make out (oddly enough). Maybe my tastes have matured since then because I used to be a fan of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte. While I still enjoy it, I think it is wayyyyyy too sweet.
Suffice it to say, I bought 25g of Pumpkin Chai a few days ago…
Wow. It is so good. It tastes so real (as if I’m biting into some great fresh pie). The chai flavors are not too prominent it just tastes creamy and pumpkin-y. I love it. 25g half done within 3 days… I’ve decided, however, not to buy anymore until fall hits (at which time I’ll purchase a tin with 100g). I can’t wait.
