drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA
105 tasting notes

I’ve been meaning to brew up another cup of this for a bit now, I wanted to finalize my thoughts on it since I’m sure that DT will pull it in the next little while now that Christmas is done.

Unfortunately, it just didn’t suit me tonight… It’s still gingerbread (well for me it would be more accurate to say that it’s a molasses cookie with a touch of ginger) but the taste just doesn’t hold up to the scent and I was looking for a bit more pizazz. I find this to be more of a subtle tea and I can’t quite get over the artificial bread/cake flavors (though I had the same issue with Red velvet so it could just be me not mixing well with the DT cake flavoring.)

I really wanted to love this tea but it wasn’t meant to be. :(

Bio

Ever since I discovered the wide world that is loose-leaf teas, I haven’t been able to go back. It doesn’t seem to matter what type it is or if it’s “straight” or “flavored” tea is my thing. It’s actually quite funny as I’m surrounded by coffee lovers who just can’t quite grasp why, to me, tea is better than coffee. :D (which considering it’s less-than a 5 minute walk to each of 2 separate Tim Horton’s, a Starbucks AND a Second Cup… that’s saying something!)

On the whole I tend to prefer my tea strong and “au natural” with no sweeteners, milk or other additions, but like most everyone there’s always exceptions to the rule… just not many of them.

Aside from tea I love reading (especially if there is a fireplace or campfire involved), camping/hiking, horseback riding and Healing Touch (similar to Reiki). Oh and computers and board games (euro style, is there anything else? ;)) and… and… chuckles OK so I have a large variety of interests.
