drank Kenyan Tinderet by DAVIDsTEA
1341 tasting notes

Okay so I had another cuppa today… and it was nice. Except not much different from the Ponmundi I had last week.
Which is perfect actually, because I was craving my Ponmundi!! but I accidentally gave it away to a friend today… I’d gone for a visit and brought my pouch of teas… and well,it’s still there! Oh well, I guess she will enjoy it as much as I do :)
—I also brought them some Strawberry Shortcake Rooibos and she and her daughters absolutely loved it.
Oh and she’s fallen in love with the Teaopia Green Christmas blend!! and their stainless steel travel tea steepers. I claim credit for this convert!! woohoo!!!

So err yes the tea!
There is not as much astringency as I recall in the Tinderet, but it is nice and deep with some hefty malt. Maybe it’s about time I try my cup at an Assam again? I had to take this one with some agave but I can atleast enjoy it with milk again (which didn’t work for me up until last week, for awhile anyhow)
I think it’d be interesting to see how I fare. Eeeek, I’m getting excited just thinking about it!!!!

Oh, you had the Teaopia Green Christmas blend? Was that just one you gave away, or did you try it for yourself? I have the white and the black, but didn’t end up bothering with the green.

Oh I never got to try it… but I did see it in my friend’s cupboard. I was so proud!! :P

This is my favourite black at David’s! :D

I was always tied between this one and their Assam. I’m having a cuppa soon to compare!!

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
