300 Tasting Notes
Thanks to KallieBoo! for this sample!
Yummy! I have put off trying teas from 52teas other than through swap because it’s so much tea to get if you wind up hating it! This, however, I could use some more of. I love banana and this tastes creamy and banana-y. The black base is far from overpowering or bitter. I wound up using my full sample in my mug plus some sweetener (just over 2 tsp – 16oz steeping mug). I hope it lasts another round because I want another cup!
This is pretty darn tasty! I bought the generous “sample size” (nearly an ounce) from Adagio with my last order and decided to change it up from my normal Davidstea Jasmine Black Pearls for my morning office tea. It’s basically their Valentines tea without the strawberry. So if you like that, you’ll like this. As with that tea, I do taste the chocolate. I sweetened it but didn’t add milk this go around. I’d probably buy a larger bag of this the next time I order from Adagio.
I’ve been pretty underwhelmed by DavidsTEA black teas, especially ones that are supposed to be flavored like dessert. I was hesitant to try this one as I very much dislike all things anise. I used the full 5 gram sample for my 16oz steeping mug, steeped for 4 minutes and added sweetener. It’s not something that I would dump out, but I’m not sure I would keep it in my cupboard. It’s ok? It actually seems a little weak as far as flavor is concerned. Did I do something wrong?
I was afraid to steep it longer than 4 minutes due to the black tea base but the packaging recommended 4-7.
Thanks to Nicole for this generous sample!
I really like this one. It’s different from The Persimmon Tree Coconut Creme in that it tastes a little like toasted coconut (it kind of reminds me of toasted coconut marshmallows). The oolong makes it creamy. I added sweetener which makes it super sweet and dessert-like.
(Got 3 steeps easily out of 2 tsp of leaves in my 16oz steeping mug – probably could have gone for a 4th too).
Thanks to RogersCK for this sample!
I’m drinking it hot as I overindulged during dinner tonight (we tried out a great Belgium place that is known for their mussels) and my body could use some honeybush and/or rooibos.
With sweetener, it kind of tastes like strawberry jam. I’m getting a tiny bit of lime, no real rum taste but I’m happy about that. I can imagine that this is amazing iced.
First I hot brewed this at normal strength for about 10 minutes (for 24oz) and then I used the remainder plus 2 fresh teaspoons to make another 24oz cold brewed. This reminds me of coconut water. It is sweet, refreshing and light on the tongue. It’s not super sweet but enough that I don’t need to add sweetener. I ordered more of this and Pink Passionate. I think those are my new favorite juice-type teas that I’ve found this season. A plus, I’m feeling a bit better and tea stays down (sorry TMI).
Just like the butterscotch, I’m about to have a lot more of this in my cupboard. I needed some tasty tea after this mornings trial. This is still tasty (whew). I usually brew 5 minutes and then the leaves are good for another brew with a few extra leaves. My second brew of this will easily ""sipdown"" this sample (I’m on my first brew right now). But as with my prior PTT note, 1oz is on its way to me soon.
