drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA
31 tasting notes

I went in to David’s to look for a tea to give as a gift for my mom this holiday season and after catching a whiff of this from nearby where it was being weighed for someone else, I immediately turned my attention and said “I want to try THAT one.”
And try it I most certainly did. It was love at first sip. Then buy it I did.
How do I explain this tea? My favorite thing about it is the aftertaste of each sip. My first sip was slightly too strong and the black tea taste was overpowering, but after the first two or three sips, the strawberry taste really came through. The chocolate isn’t as noticeable as I initially though, but I’ve always been kind of iffy about chocolate tea. This was perfect. The chocolate comes through after the taste of strawberry and kind of coats the tongue before you taste the roses. It’s quite rich.
As I drank this tea, I felt so enticed. This is definitely one I’d curl up with while watching Pride and Prejudice (the BBC version of course!) on a cold, winter night to spice things up. It’s a dreamy, decadent sort of tea. Definitely a winner. I’d love to try this with milk next time.

Bio

I’m a 22 year old city girl who loves the hustle and bustle of urban life but like everybody else, I just want to come home at the end of the day and curl up with my dog, my tea, and a good book.
I’ve never cared much for coffee, but got into tea after a visit to Lupicia in Hawaii. What started off as a small box set of souvenir tea has turned into monthly tea shopping trips to local tea shops and a cabinet in the pantry just for tea!
