drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA
1311 tasting notes

wow! I did not expect this tea to be SO yummy.
For the first brew, I tried it hot and it was supremely satisfying. The lime and gelato parts came out nice and balanced, which surprised me because some friends mentioned that they hated this tea after trying a sample in the store. (I should have known better- they always add too much sweetener and oversteep)
The green base was mild but appropriately so given it’s palate partners!
Second infusion wasn’t as great. a bit watery and worn(minus points) down but I’ll take it. Too much caffeine is bad for a girl anyhow.
aaaaaaaand for the first time ever, I am excited about trying a loose tea ICED! This one should be incredible. yay! :)

You… Will… NOT! … be… let down!!! I am not a huge fan of green teas, flavoured or otherwise and after trying “Movie Night” and loving it, this one was not a hard sell at the store. I have had it over steeped but it only seemed to make it more creamy? slightly bitter but more creamy, and when making it iced in my 20oz Starbucks iced drink cup I have only used three teaspoons to 1/3 of hot water in an 8 cup botum, steep for (in my case forget about it and come back) pour into venti cup over ice and voila! You have a delicious cup of tea with enough caffine to get you through a night meeting for Summer Camp. (Two days in a ROW!)

yes I can see how that would keep you up all night!!
They really knocked it out of the park with this one. Movie Night is not my fave tea of DTs but this one… wow, there are not enough wows!
My friend who tried it has very odd tea preferences so I need to learn that his idea of good tea is not anywhere near mine! ha.
Mmmmmm I can’t wait to try this iced… it will have to wait til tuesday as I left it at work :S

Bio

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!
