212 Tasting Notes
LOVED this tea.
DavidsTea sure knows their stuff about how to make a balanced light flavored white tea.
I’m confused by the bitterness statements and I HATE hibiscus but I did not taste or smell any of the meaty spicy scent that is hibiscus.
Hide it from me and I’ll drink any tea with it but hide it well.
I loved how refreshing,light and fruity the tea was.No bitterness at all in my taste test.
I think the problem may be that most teas need 98 degree steep but on this tea it states 94 degrees so basically letting the water cool a bit before steeping.I did not take that into account in my tasting except that I didn’t let my water do a complete boil before steeping and let it cool.Also I used 2 tea spoons as advised.
Maybe it’s a good batch as well or they changed the recipe who knows.
But damn it was good to me.
As we all know if it’s a fruit tea I’ve got to try it.This tea just smells amazing but yet again there’s that heavy hibiscus smell that I’m not crazy about when it’s steeped.
It’s a very yummy tea,The jam of tea.Rich and syrupy with a sweet and tart berry taste.Really warming and a lovely mid-day treat.
I LOVE fruit teas.lindairvine and I ordered a bunch of tea this past week and this was one of our choices.Of course I pick all the fruity,citrusy flowery ones and she goes for the richer darker textured teas.We make a great team and always discover new things that we would not have thought of to try before.I saw this and knew instantly I had to have it,try it and hopefully love it.
When I steeped it the smell kind of wierded me out there was this almost spicy meaty texture (hibiscus?)to it that I could not place so I was hesitant to sip it right away.
Thankfully the taste was much better tart light and refreshing.I think it would be great iced and with booze.
This is a very tart tea which I actually like but may not be for everyone I think this is a fruit tea that is an acquired taste and has so many different things going on it may be hard to come to terms with.Overall I enjoyed it not as much as other fruit teas I’ve had but it’s still quite nice and I will be making it iced in the summer.
After the disappointment of La La Lemon I decided to try a tea that promised to be more lemony then lemons themselves.It certainly smells absurdly lemony and looks absurdly lemony which is basically a promise of perfection to me.
It’s a very pleasant tea but I prefer Midsummer’s Night Dream as a lemon tea.This is a truly strong tart and bitter lemony tea so it tastes like more of a wellness tea then a treat tea.I think this will be a staple wellness tea good for sore throats and cold cold days but is not a treat tea by any stretch.
God I love the smell of this tea buttery rich creamy but light.
I am a big fan of white teas with their light taste and having the highest level of antioxidants in tea.
This is such a unusual mix of ingredients in a caffeinated tea and yet it works beautifully.
it’s very nice and light but rich and creamy as well.
A very pleasant tea,no need to sweeten.Wonderful experience to have mid-day when you want something sweet but not too sweet.
Anyone who knows me knows I am a citrus taste addict.
Being raised in a European household we always had black tea with slices of lemon floating and squeezed into it.I even used lemon juice on black tea going as extreme with lemon as I can go in tea.
So I was definitely SUPER excited to try a black tea infused with extreme lemony taste and smell It smells amazing like perfectly lemonized black tea.
Well damnit Smelled amazing and full of promise but the tea was simply bitter with a tiny bite of lemon really not worth mentioning.
I think I perhaps steeped too long.I will try again and see if I can find the lemony black tea promised land in my cup.
I have a lot of hope.
No number rating yet.
I’m a big fan of wellness teas, but there aren’t many delightful tasting ones.
I was told at the store that it would not be good to drink this during the day because it would put me to sleep.Being a fan of and having used Valerian root in the past I was looking forward to a improved wellness tea with some drama that works.
Feeling tired but not tired enough I finally decided to try this,though I have many other sleepy time teas that work perfectly well in my cupboard..I just needed to know there was a tastier alternative.
I also do not care for peppermint teas so this was another taste test.
After having steeped it’s a gorgeous red color.
Oh my goodness what a revelation.I actually like the mint taste and the tea is delicately sweet with a really nice warming aftertaste and the lemon flavor is perfectly light and tart.Tastes like a light refreshing and relaxed fruit tea with a kick of mint and lemon.
I do not believe in wasting tea even the bagged kind so I will finish all my sleepy time stock or gift it and just get this from DAVIDsTEA from now on for those nights when I need a lot of help to get to sleep.
