286 Tasting Notes

Mmmmm, this is quite fantastic.

Finally, I got my parcel from 52teas in the mail yesterday. It was a good mail day for me. This is the only one of the three teas in the package that I was able to try yesterday, and it was so delicious. I had three infusions, and I think the second one was the best. But all three were absolutely wonderful. I am already sad that I can’t reorder this tea whenever I want it.

Yum, yum!

I had a super busy day yesterday, so I took some of this mixed with Santa’s Secret in my travel mug to work. It’s so tasty, I ended up drinking another two infusions throughout the day. Guayusa is just always so delicious.

This one never disappoints me. What a delicious, relaxing cup of tea before bed.

That is all.

Does it taste a lot like anise?

jessiwrites

Well, I think it’s a nice blend, the anise is a great complement to the sweetness of the chocolate / coconut. But if you don’t like anise, it might be too overpowering.

I wish I could drink this before bed!

I was thinking, ‘mmm, I need something amazing and delicious after the disappointment that was Bubbly’ and so I made this… and was kind of let down.

I think I’m just tired today and impossible to please, because I normally love this tea. Sigh.

drank Bubbly by DAVIDsTEA

Courtney sent me a sample of this one, and even though I absolutely hate champagne, I really wanted to try it because sweet and fruity pineapple sounds delightful.

It is way too similar to champagne for me.

I do see from several other reviews that this one gets bitter if it is steeped for longer than 1-2 minutes, so I will try that next time to see if it’s any better, because I have enough for a couple more cups.

I wanted to love that one because of the pineapple. But I also despise champagne and the scent alone was too much for me.

jessiwrites

Yep, I felt the same way. I tried, though! I drank the entire cup… but it was just totally champagne-y. Good work, DavidsTea.

After having regular matcha and then trying this today, I was actually able to taste the caramel flavor. Oh, holy yum.

I actually think I prefer regular matcha, but this made for a lovely post-lunch treat. I am super happy that Courtney sent me a sample of this, because I can definitely see myself enjoying this again. Over and over.

I was a bit intimidated by matcha, and now I just want to order ALL THE KINDS.

Courtney

Haha that is exactly how I felt when I tried them!

drank Nepal Black by DAVIDsTEA

Yum, this is tasty!

After my first cup, I had thought of all these things I wanted to write about in my tasting note, about the floral-y fragrance mixed with a dark, malty taste… but mostly, I forgot all of it as I drank my second and third infusions. But it is delicious, and I am sad that my sample from Courtney only contained enough for one taste of this.

So, yum.

I bought 100g of this before it disappears, and I thoroughly enjoyed several cups before bed tonight. I had a busy Saturday, and wanted something calming and warm and delicious while I finally get to sit down and relax and watch Labyrinth.

This is so perfect. I love that it’s similar to Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, because I love them both, but it’s got this extra element of warmth with the cinnamon and orange peel, the ‘crumble’, I guess.

Gah.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
286 tasting notes

I’ve had this before and not logged it, because it was a quick taste while I was visiting with my dad. I thought he might like it, so I brought it out to my farm to have with him one afternoon.

I was in the mood for black tea, but I wanted something warm and light, not overwhelmingly dessert-y. It came down to this one or Ceylon Star, and tonight, Glitter & Gold won. I actually really enjoy this tea. It’s kind of quiet and understated and delightful.

I’ve seen some people compare it to Della Terra’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, and while I can see where this comparison comes from, I much prefer this.

(Man, trying to write up a tasting note without my glasses on is kind of tough. Letters all look the same, YARGH!)

EDIT: Sadly, it appears that this tea does not re-steep very well. I normally prefer the second infusion, but not this time.

drank Daydreamer by DAVIDsTEA

This is very good and fruity, but not for me. I am not a fan of mango, but I do enjoy how sweet and fresh this tea tastes. Thanks, Courtney, for sending me a bit of this to try! I have enough for another cup, still, and I am thinking I’ll try cold-brewing my leftover leaves to see how that works.
