222 Tasting Notes
So just got my DavidsTea parcel today and my first try will be this interesting tea.
It smells exactly like chocolate ice cream.
It brews thick and foggy a light caramel color with sediment on the top and bottom.
I actually really like this!
it’s like an unsweetened watery hot chocolate or chocolate ice cream melted which is actually quite pleasant and not so hard on the teeth or caloric intake.
It’s not as overwhelming as I thought it would be for a gimmicky tea.
Picked up a 26g sampler of this today.
This smells EXACTLY like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange.
When measuring it out the chocolate curls are obvious,charming and completely enticing.
The Lemon rinds to my utter joy are also prolific and zesty.
Once steeped it’s a rich darker caramel color and smells about the same if a bit subdued.
Tastes earthy and rich but it’s not overpowering but it is the first impression I get.
The smoky texture immediately changes into the aftertaste of a Chocolate Orange on my tongue.
Overall it’s a pleasant tea but it is the taste shadow of the chocolate orange and not the full flavor I tend to hope for in my gimmick teas.
However there are so many glowing reviews on here so I will try it again and fuss with my preparation.
Hints are VERY much welcomed!
Pu’erh teas are different. Darker,richer then any other type of tea.Usually smokier and richer in taste and texture.
This tea smells like after eight’s but it doesn’t do the smell justice unfortunately.
I’m looking forward to continuing my experimentation with this type of tea since it is so very different.
Tried this quite a few times but it never seemed to be the tea I imagined it would be.I honestly just ended up picking the jellybeans out of the bag and ate them instead of making the tea again.
It was worth a try but I think this was TOO gimmicky as a tea.At the end of the day it’s a sweet rooibos and the jellybeans only come out in flavor if you leave them to dissolve totally in the cup and don’t leave them in the strainer.
Fun concept just doesn’t work in practice.Thanks for the jellybeans though!
