drank Chocolate Rocket by DAVIDsTEA
234 tasting notes

My very first Davids Tea purchase. And one of the best at that.
This tea saved me last night as I needed a powerful tea to help me stay up all night studying the worst subject ever – ichthyology (study/naming fish x.x)

Dry: visible chunks of almonds and raspberries. Chocolate colored mate with carob pieces. Smells like a million bucks. I cannot wait!
Liquor: Smells like chocolate raspberries! Soooo delicious! Very dark brown liquor. Extremely pleasant chocolate raspberry flavour that improves as the tea cools, with no weird mate peaking through (as I have had problems with mates overpowering the flavour of the tea.. maybe I steeped those incorrectly?)

Overall: My very first Davids tea will be in the permanent collection! Not for nostalgic reasons, but because this is a rocket of chocolate raspberry that is delicious and helps with energy when I need it the most. A favourite.

Bio

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
