drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA
613 tasting notes

This is one awesome tea (!), and I am so grateful to the SA that showed it to me, as I would never have thought to try it on its own. It was recommended to me as I had mentioned I love Genmai Cha. I love the fruity and nutty flavours of the Toasted Walnut, and I love that it is light, but hearty at the same time. I know that sounds weird, but it is a similar feel as with the Genmai Cha…I guess it is the starch from the rice in the Genmai that makes it feel hearty, but the green tea feels light…so maybe it is the walnuts that offer a similar feel to the Toasted Walnut tea. I don’t care what it is, I just know I NEED MORE!!! For the record, I have found that this tea blends well with Happy Kombucha and works well chilled or iced as well as hot. Drink this tea my friends, and you will be happy!

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.
