1220 tasting notes

Ah, newbies at DavidsTea, you’re so cute. Yes, I am aware of the tea of the month, and I am aware of some old classics like Buttered Rum and Cream of Earl Grey. And yes, I’ve tried all of the winter teas, and yes I am aware that Fantasy Island is coming back from the dead. All easily forgivable, how are they supposed to know I’m a DT fangirl?

However, I was offered a sample of this and it was horrible. Tart as sin. The hibiscus completely took over until I couldn’t taste any of the other ingredients she insisted on rattling off. Seriously, I tasted absolutely nothing but hibiscus. So if you’re like me and can’t stand the stuff, please do try this tea, but not in-store and be sure to keep an eye on the steep time.

(not adjusting my rating because it’s not the tea’s fault, bless its little heart.)

Isn’t it funny how they so cheerily inform you of the new teas?! They must be all high on caffeine or something bahahaaaa

Omg I feel the same way when newbies work at my local DT too, or if I go to a different DT location. Lol, sometimes I think I know more than them (:

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!
