1196 Tasting Notes

100

Had a cuppa yesterday morning to try and wake up before work and because I was making a cup for Tina, so I may as well indulge.

I love this tea so much. Seriously, if you like matcha, try this one. It’s beyond amazing.

Just received my order and tried it this morning!!!! I think I’m in love, it’s delicious! Thanks for your initial review; sounded so tempting I knew it’d become one of my favorites!!!

This is my jug o iced tea for the moment. I love this stuff. I made it too weak, next time I’ll add more leaf, but it is still delicious and everything I want in an iced tea. Blue slushie! Yum!

I had a cup of this last night when my wife was finally returned to me! It needed a touch more sugar, but when I added a few drops of raspberry agave nectar, I could really start to taste the berry. I will have to try this one again before I rate, but I did enjoy what I had!

drank Raspberry Royale by Bigelow
1196 tasting notes

I have got to find a supplier for this tea, I can’t seem to find it or Bigelow French Vanilla anywhere! Maybe I should have my mom have a look in the States for me and just drop some in the next package she sends. I just can’t justify purchasing a bagged tea online XD. But I had this at Panera yesterday (I had a bag in my purse) and it was delicious. Just what I wanted.

drank Jolly Jellybean by DAVIDsTEA

Blegh. Still not impressed. I had this iced yesterday and at the first sip, I was like “wow! This is great!” But the time I was halfway through the cup, I really just didn’t want to finish it. It was sickeningly sweet, the rooibos got to me. shrugs It just wasn’t impressive to me. Not one I will stock up on.

And, for the record, I didn’t get any jelly beans in this cup, either.

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA

Thursday’s thermos of tea for the day. Yum. I had forgotten how juicy and fruity this little beauty is. It was no hardship at all to drink the 1.5 L of this. It did give me a bit of a boost, and while I didn’t feel overly jittery like I sometimes do with matcha, it kept me going on a painfully long day.

drank Pink Flamingo by DAVIDsTEA
1196 tasting notes

It’s that time of year again! The time of year where spring has just started, but occasionally winter creeps in, so all the public buildings still have their heat on.

In other words, I have been melting at work. Melting. So I take breaks every chance I get to go wander the mall (which is considerably cooler than my office, somehow) and make my way over to Davids for an iced tea. This was my tea for Thursday. The girl who helped me strongly recommended Jolly Jellybean, so I switched, but then I got a whiff of this and knew it was what I needed. Yum yum yum. It was beautiful and refreshing, tart and almost like a grapefruit lemonade without the acid that sets off my acid reflux.

Wow, I just looked at my rating from the last time I had it. I’m gonna go ahead and bump that up….I think I’ve fallen for this tea.

Yumyumyumyumyumyumyum. This is exactly what I’ve been craving these last few days. I made a big pot (affectionately named “Bertha” because she holds almost two liters) and stuck it in the fridge overnight to cool. I figured out why I don’t like the idea of coldbrewing! I’m a good Southern girl, and that means every tea I touch gets sweetened. Well, almost every tea. But sugar tastes much different when brewed into a hot tea and when stirred into an already-cold tea.

Unfortunately, I seem to have made Kool-Aid this time around by not paying attention and adding half a cup of sugar to the mix (I usually add two teaspoons for Bertha). Ah well, since the blend does have hibiscus in it, I iced it anyway. Yum yum yum I love it. It’s too sweet, but that’s obviously my fault. But I think this will become a definite favorite in the coming summer months.

I’ve heard agave works better than sugar in already-cold tea because it dissolves better. I can’t believe I still haven’t been to the tea emporium. When I finally get there, I’ll check this tea out!

drank Nepal Black by DAVIDsTEA
1196 tasting notes

Oh man. A few people on my list have reviewed this recently, so I felt it was time to revisit one of my favorites yesterday. Creamy, smooth, delicious…mmmm. This is just a lovely black. I love watching the big leaves unfurl. It’s the straight black that makes me believe in straight blacks.

tea bliss!! :P

Definately my favourite black. I would almost say it’s my favourite David’s tea but that distinction belongs to Pink Flamingo.

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!
