1196 Tasting Notes

95

Well color me surprised. I’m trying all of the Easter Tea Trail teas coldbrewed (except for Chocolate Macaroon) and I am so happy with this one! I’m not an Earl fan, but this is like a bright, fruity lemonade-like tea. Yummy.

drank Happy Kombucha by DAVIDsTEA

Coldbrew sipdown from the Easter Tea Trail.

Still meh. It’s refreshing, I guess, but not anything I’d ever reach for.

I still like this one, but have not had it in a while. I used to mix it with Toasted Walnut.

Another from the Easter Tea Trail coldbrewed overnight and I am pleasantly surprised! I do get hints of chocolate raspberry, but I also still get banana. It’s weird. I love raspberry, but I don’t like chocolate, so this is just an okay brew for me. I do like it a lot more iced than I do cold, but I still think the rest of what I have of this tea will be winging to Nova Scotia for a friend who absolutely loves it.

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA

This is a sipdown from the Easter Tea Trail and…yeah. I still don’t like lime gelato. Granted, I don’t like lime. It was okay, but nothing I’d search out again.

Amariel

I like this one, but primarily as a summer tea.

This was part of the Easter Tea Trail, so I dumped the whole little tin into my mason jar to coldbrew and it was lovely. Sweet and fruity and a treat after dinner. I’m glad I didn’t have to share it! It can be a little hibby, but agave smoothed that right out.

Honeybee, I love thee.

I coldbrewed the sample from my easter tea trail and it is lovely.

Hopefully it will wake me the heck up!

drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
1196 tasting notes

This is another tea that got stuck in the fridge for three days while I battled food poisoning, and it survived as well! It’s reminding me why I fell in love with this tea in the first place. It’s warm and apple-y and for me, it’s more like an apple pasty instead of a pie. Small difference, I know, but a pasty is fried and it had that flaky, buttery richness in it. Even cold, this is a warm delight. This tea is three years old and hence in my sipdown pile, but I am sad to have it there.

drank Celebration by RiverTea
1196 tasting notes

This sat in the fridge, brewing, for three days while I recovered from food poisoning, and I’m happy to say it is none the worse for the abuse! It’s light and fruity and refreshing, reminding me that I greatly enjoy bamboo teas. Since our condo is a never-ending heat sink, anything that cools me off like this has is a major positive.

It sounds like the name of this tea is quite appropriate!

I’ve had food poisoning for the last day or so (again. Of course, again. Jeebus), so I haven’t had the energy to deal with the teas I have coldbrewing in my fridge. But when we were on our way to Mississauga to put in an appearance at a family member’s birthday party, we stopped off at a 7-11 and I picked up two of these. I LOVE THESE and every time I see them, I pick up a few. So good. It doesn’t have that sour, artificial tea flavor and I’m telling you, I had one before bed last night and I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I wonder if I could replicate it at home…

It seems like you’ve been having a lot of food/gastro issues lately. I hope you get better.

Gastro issues are my life, unfortunately. For instance, I have lactose issues, but earlier this week while eating tofu, I discovered that soy does my body no favors either. Meh, life goes on and so do I :)

The second day in a row having this tea and I’m willing to confirm that it is literally making me ill. Blegh. The only other thing I’ve had today was rice and I don’t think it is the cause of my nausea.

Sadness. But it’s a sipdown (319/301), so YAY

Nooooo! That’s not right! Scott’s supposed to be annoying yet endearing. :|
Sorry it was a total fail for you.

At least I got a cool tin out of it!!

Cavocorax

Yeah, that’s pretty sweet! Have you figured out what you’re going to do with all your tins? I have no idea with mine… (I can’t remember if I’ve asked you already – sorry)

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
