drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA
39 tasting notes

I nearly bought this tea on the basis of the cause alone. That, and the aroma. It’s one of the strongest teas I’ve ever smelled.

I only bought 30g of this. I took this to work the other morning and brewed it right then and there. Maybe I wasn’t in the right mood to enjoy it, but I had issues after the first few sips.

Sips 1-3: Nice and fruity, lots of cinnamon and banana hints.
Sips 4-6: Less fruit, still some notes of cinnamon, still delectable… Is that hibiscus?
Sips 7+: Hibiscus is overwhelming.

I finished the cup and tried again a few days later with similar results.

It definitely is a nice tea, but it isn’t something I can drink every day. I’m not sure I’d buy it again. I wish David’s would do more tea for a good cause.

My foray into steeping happened with tin of Oreo cookie and salted chocolate caramel tea, back in college in 2009. I probably bought them for the novelty more than the taste— which sounds like a reason for many of my college-era purchases. The lovely little tea store was bought out by David’s Tea soon after I finished college. While I do enjoy getting tea from places other than malls, it’s difficult to find quality without going online. Most of my stash ends up being from there due to convenience.

I’m an early childhood educator. Tea is a big part of my daily life. I’ve yet to find anything as soothing and as energizing as it.

I’m on a big kick of blacks and herbals, especially straight ones.

80-100: A favourite! Would drink/purchase again
60-79: Decent, but probably won’t go back for more
40-59: Glad I tried, but one cup is enough
~40: No thanks. Never again!
