506 Tasting Notes

I managed to muck up the brew on this today! Usually it is a delightfully nonfussy tea, but today I think I let it run just a little too long and base tea did not shine through in the best way. I will watch my steep time more closely next time!

I smelled this in store yesterday and just had to have some to try! The leaves smell amazing, like seriously good enough to eat. Brewed up, the coconut is beautifully creamy while the pineapple adds a nice tart bite to the sip. The base tea is definitely present, and a little stronger than I like my black bases to be. I like a lot of things about this tea, I think I just need to drink a few cups to get a bit more used to the presence of the base tea notes. Overall, I am glad I have some of this to try and I could see it becoming a tea I am very fond of.

I was SOOOO excited to see this tea show up for Halloween. We started drinking tea when this one was still a bit of a big deal but was no longer available. I badly wanted to try it but it just was not around. I ran down to David’s last night to pick up some of it and it was amazing! It lived up to all of my expectations! I like green rooibos so much better than red and the green rooibos blends so well with the fruit flavours. I am glad to see this one back and I hope it sticks around on line for a little while!

I’m super pumped for this one too. It was one of the first DAVIDs teas that I tried, and I have fond memories of drinking it with my roommate at our old house.

drank Pineapple Kona Pop! by Teavana

I enjoyed this so much I had two cups of it at work yesterday. I love the fresh note of the pineapple and how it just gets better and better as it steeps. It was a delicious tea to drink all day!

I think I finally worked out my why I can’t get behind this tea! I think it all boils down to me and my intense dislike of cardamom. I love so many of the flavours this tea promises (I am an almond nut), but I can’t seem to get over the cardamom. This one goes to my fiance, he is going to have to finish it off!

I am not a particular fan of oolong teas in general, but I make an exception for this one. Nutty and (with just a bit of sugar) and lovely decadent fall evening tea!

I have been neglecting this tea of late, which is ridiculous because it is one of my fall favourites, but maybe, for now, I have finally had my fill? I brewed a cup up last night and it was alright, it always brews into a good tea, but I just didn’t find myself as in awe over it as I usually am. Maybe it and I just need to take a bit of a break for a little while!

Gasp, my tin of this is nearly out. I think I might have one more bag tucked away somewhere! I truly hope so!! It is a total go to for me during this fall weather.

drank Caramel Corn by DAVIDsTEA

I am not sure what went wrong with me and this tea, possibly a simple case of bad timing? It came out right before we moved down south and I didn’t have time to really get into any teas. I know I liked it, I certainly stocked up on enough of it, but since then it has just sat on my shelf. Today I finally got around to brewing up a cup again. The resulting sweet, caramel tea reminds me a lot of movie night and like a buttery sort of version of Sleigh Ride. Given that I adore both of those teas, it is not surprising that this was initially such an easy sell with me. It was a great cup of tea today and I am glad I finally got around to trying it out again!

This tea can be great or it can be not so great. Happily, last night I brewed up an excellent cup. Both the banana and the grape flavours were present and they melded beautifully with the white teas base. This was a lovely cup to enjoy while we learned a new board game!
