26 Tasting Notes
Yum, these tea leaves smell just like a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream. It definitely makes a good cup of dessert tea. It’s sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. I taste more mint than chocolate. It also leaves a bit of an Andies mint aftertaste. I like it!
It is a rare green tea that I enjoy. But this is sweet, smooth, and light. I decided to sample this because I love caramel and this does not disappoint. I used 1 teaspoon and it’s perfect. My only complaint, and this is appearing to be the case with all of the sample sizes I am opening, the leaves are so tiny that they float their way into my mug. I have to sip around them until they finally sink to the bottom.
Another sample received with an order. Leaves smell of cocoa and hazelnut. Again the leaves are too small for my infuser and I have tea leaves in my cup. After steeping for 4 minutes I smell and taste hazelnut, but no chocolate. I added a bit too much water so it’s not very flavorful.
As it cools, this tea tastes medicinal. Still no chocolate and not much hazelnut. I’ll try it again since I have enough of the sample for one more, but I don’t have high hopes.
I received a sample of this with my very first Davids Tea purchase. I purchased the caffeine-free sample pack and can’t wait to try them out. Since I’m much into the Christmas and winter mood now, I am happy to try this out.
I could smell gingerbread in the leaves, but a very sweet gingerbread. I guess that would be the molasses. After the tea steeped for 5 minutes, the taste was much less sweet and definitely like a gingerbread cookie to me. I am happy with it. I did add a splash of milk after a few sips to see if it would be any better, but the milk didn’t make a noticeable difference.
My only complaint, and I don’t know if this is a trait of all of Davids products or just this sample, the leaves are incredibly small and many made their way into my tea. I’m not a fan of that.
This tea smells very much like sweet butterscotch candy, which is deceiving since it did not taste overly sweet. It was good, but I think I may add some rock sugar next time and see how it comes out. I used 1.5 teaspoons and will not adjust it for the next cup. I have only tried a couple of white teas in the past and like how light they are. This is no exception.
I’ve tried this tea quite a few times now and can’t believe that I’ve forgotten to write a tasting note!
The tea smells very sweet and syrupy, both dry and after steeping. Unfortunately, it leaves a chalky and dry feeling in my mouth and is a bit too sweet for my liking. I discovered that, for me, this tea is best as a latte. I add 4-8 ounces of hot milk and it is heaven in a cup. Especially now that the weather is turning cooler it is a great treat morning, day or night! I can taste a buttery smooth pancake with a syrup aftertaste. Not too sweet and no longer chalky.
I had the last of my sample today. I did enjoy this tea and was able to get 3 steeps from 1 1/2 teaspoons. I still think it tasted better once it got cold; I feel like the flavors combined better and it went down smoother. I am going to miss this one but not enough to re-order it. There are too many other teas to try including the 15 samples I just received in the mail!
