drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
601 tasting notes

I’m a bit undecided if I actually like this tea. It was my first tea from DAVIDs, on suggestion from a friend who was having some Genmai Cha when my DH and I met up with her for lunch on her recent visit out here…I mentioned that I loved Genmai Cha as well, and she told me about DAVIDs and Movie Night. I told her we had just gotten a DAVIDs here (she used to live here in Victoria but lives in Toronto now). Anyway, back to the tea…

Pros
-It smells wonderful.
-It tastes great.

Cons
-It tastes nothing like what I’d expect. I got absolutely no popcorn taste at all, and additionally, I got very little green tea flavour either. I got maple and apple all the way, and thought I was drinking a tisane/herbal tea.
-There is very little actual green tea in the blend…it is take up mostly with the popcorn and apple.

This tasted nice chilled…very light and refreshing, like crisp apple juice. I have been told that the steeping time, and amount of tea used, greatly affects the taste. As of yet, I have not been compelled to try more, as I am too busy trying other teas instead, and have found some Holy Grail teas (MUST stock up on Buttercream before it’s gone!). Maybe if it is still around come next spring or summer, I’ll get some again and play with the steeping times.

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.
