106 Tasting Notes
I love mint. I love chocolate. I love dessert teas. Combine them together? Heaven. I love this tea! Normally I sweeten my black teas, but this has enough sweetness on it’s own. Definitely going to try this one with milk.
ETA: The third infusion was all dark chocolate and no mint. Still a delicious cuppa though!
Drinking a big mason jar of this iced right now. It’s definitely good and quite refreshing. While it has the kool-aid smell, it does not have that over the top artificial taste. I can still taste the green tea through this. They strike a nice balance together. Grape is not my favorite though, so I’m not itching to put in an order for this.
I had a couple sips of this hot before I put it in the fridge. So far so good! I can’t wait for this to chill down. Hot, I could taste the tea through the grape flavor, and I really think they compliment each other well. It promises to be a very refreshing brew.
I did the whole sample packet in just above 16oz of water, then went right in for a second steeping. At first sip they taste very similar.
While I’ve never had guava, when the hubby and I were looking through teas to order this one stood out to him. He loves iced tea and we figured this would be ideal iced. This batch was a cold brew, and I did leave it in for quite a while. Like I said, I’ve never had guava, but I taste something reminiscent of kiwi, which I really don’t care for. However the hubster loved it which makes it a win.
First tea I’ve tried from the “sweet indulgence” sampler set. OMG. This one is going on the wish list for sure. It smells amazing! Creamy coconut with the fruity sweetness, I’m in heaven. The taste is smooth and not too sweet. I just can’t get enough of the scent though! Someone make this into a perfume asap please! If anyone is into perfume and can recommend something to remind me of this, I would love you forever <3
Reminiscent of caramel corn. It has a buttery, sweet kind of flavor to it. I didn’t know if I would like this one or not. After I ordered I was like why did I order this one? What if it’s terrible!? omg O.o however, I can now say I’m totally relieved because this was entirely enjoyable. Not something I will reach for constantly, but I’m glad I have it in my stash.
holy eucalyptus! This one came in as one of the free samples with my order (my first order with David’s! SO exciting!) I had been agonizing over which tea I wanted to try first, and I’m glad I went with this one.
I just haven’t been feeling quite right the past couple of days. My sleeping pattern is off, and it has been an emotionally overwhelming past couple of days. I’m switching gears from planning on moving out of state for grad school, to now hoping for a campus placement close to home for a different grad school.
So today when I finally made it out of bed, I made myself the sample of this tea making a whole pot in my small teapot before getting to all my paperwork. I do get a bit of orange, and a ton of eucalyptus. I am feeling a bit better, in that I’m still feeling crappy but not quite as much kind of way. Maybe if I try to relax in a bath with some eucalyptus spearmint bubble bath, that might help.
