drank Bamboozled by DAVIDsTEA
925 tasting notes

Whenever I hear the word “Bamboozled” I think of the episode of Friends when Joey is auditioning for the game show of the same name. The dry leaf here is all about peach and pineapple, especially peach. There is also a strange underlying damp sort of vegetal scent, I’m guessing from the bamboo? It just doesn’t seem right though.

I’m running into the same problem when steeped. While peach is in the spotlight, I’m detecting the same sort of cellar-like vegetal undertone in the taste. As my mug is cooling, I’m getting the same sensation that other reviewers have experienced. It’s a cooling, green sensation that freshens up the experience a bit, but the undertones are still weirding out my taste buds. Perhaps this is more promising iced.

I honestly think the Bamboozled one is my favorite episode of Friends. I just… I want to play that game so much.

Yeah, I mean, who wouldn’t want a shot at the Golden Monkey?

Everyone should watch this. I’m not even a huge fan of the show, but it’s quite funny: http://youtu.be/rhnpTPTp_1A

Me too! That was hilarious, how enthusiastic Chandler and Ross was about it once they realised that they shouldn’t pay too much attention to rules. :p Bit like Calvinball, really. :p
