607 tasting notes

Mmmmmm, I am soooo glad I got more of this tea. It is actually my first tea from DAVIDs and I remember feeling a little disappointed that it tasted mostly like apple, and less like popcorn or green tea, but having had a number of teas from DAVIDs now, I see this tea in a whole new light, and I love it. So long as I don’t over steep it or have the water too hot for it to turn bitter. I do let it steep a little longer though, as I think that brings the popcorn and green tea flavours out more. I was also disappointed at the lack of leaf compared to apples and popcorn, but now I just don’t care. :P This makes it a perfect tea for later at night when you want a tea with less caffeine content, and I would say since there is less leaf, there has to be less caffeine too. I also think the starches from the popcorn aid in some way too. I have fallen in love with this tea! I can see it in my future for the next several months, as I think it is a great spring and summer tea, and it does work well iced too. Whether or not it will be hearty enough as my morning tea in the late fall and winter, I don’t know yet. I will be getting lots more of this, also, because it weighs so little, you can get a lot of it and not pay as much. I got 26g of this and paid $3 and change, whereas for the 24g of Gold Rush, it was over $5.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
