235 Tasting Notes
I LOVE citrus in anything and everything so I was super excited about DT doing a whole line just for citrus addicts like me!
I never felt like they had enough citrus variety or it just wasn’t strong enough or too strong in a wellness tea kind of way.
This smells just lovely the oil of Tangerine really doing it’s part to come through and tickle me with just a low toasty note that really accents the citrus in an interesting way.
Taste is decent and citrusy but doesn’t blow me away.
The toasty notes are alright but maybe they take away from the citrus experience I wanted.
This will be good green tea cupboard stock until it runs out.
Don’t think I’ll buy again though unless I warm up to it in the future.
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.
