475 Tasting Notes

drank Pink Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA

I brewed up a pitcher of this as it is one of my perennial favourite iced teas. I have been busy packing though, and managed to forget it in the fridge for a day and a half, as opposed to the over night steep time I usually allow it. It is still a great tea, but the stevia has shown up a little too much for my liking. Lesson learned and I will be keeping a much closer eye on the steeping time for this from here on out!

drank Caramel Corn by DAVIDsTEA

I really am enjoying this tea especially how buttery and smooth the caramel overtones are, the only part that I am not sure about is the final apple note. It sort of comes across as nice cross between Forever Nuts and Movie Night, both of which I adore. However, the apple notes from Movie Night are definitely present. Personally, I find that the apple note does take away from the popcorn flavour a little bit. But, overall, I really like the flavour of the tea.

drank Hello Sweetie by Butiki Teas

It was such a chilly day today that this was the perfect cup to brew. I love the caramel notes and the malty depth to the base tea used in this blend. It needs a bit of sweetener to really bring out the flavour, but, when brewed right, it is such a decadent dessert tea! This is one of my favourite teas to drink, hands down!

drank Cherry Snowcone by DAVIDsTEA
475 tasting notes

I cold brewed a pitcher of this and was pleasantly surprised. It was a nice, light, tart cherry. It definitely reminded me of a cherry snow cone or popsicle. I think it is going to to be really refreshing on super hot days, but it is not a tea I am absolutely in love with and have to have available all the time. I am glad I have some to play with, but I don’t know that is needs to have a permanent home in my cupboard.

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA
475 tasting notes

I am really not feeling this tea. I brought some home and tried a different brewing method (low temperature, short steep) which has worked for me before. This tea is just a no go though, all I ever get is a slight rooibos taste and a lot of sugar water. It is sweet, but it really does not scream cotton candy to me. I will have to leave this tea to those who have had more success as with it than I have!

I have only tried this tea hot, but it really tastes like a jolly rancher to me. I don’t know that this is a bad thing, it is just unexpected. I like the idea of a bit of a bite from some balsamic vinegar, but this is not what I had imagined that would taste like. I have a bit of this to play around with, so far it is… Interesting?

I think this tea is fantastic!! I adore the buttery taste and it really does remind me of sweet popcorn. I prefer a shorter steep time, which prevents the apple from showing up too much in the flavour, but either way it is super amazing! I can’t really see this cold, but I could easily imagine myself tucking into to it on cold evenings! I had it unsweetened and it worked, but I think it is going to be amazing with a bit of sugar!

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA

I picked some of this up to try and I have to admit I was not in love. It is sweet, but not really anything else. I guess if one argues that cotton candy is also at the heart of things really just a sweet taste, it is accurate, but it is not something I need to have in my life.

drank Pink Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA
475 tasting notes

I made the world’s hardest deal with myself. No tea reviews until I had found a job for next year, given that I didn’t need the distraction while I was supposed to be working on applications. A month later and I am back!!

I have so much tea to catch up on!! I am finishing my last real batch of this tea until we move and unpack. As always, it is amazing. I love the blackberry leaves along with the sweet passion fruit notes.

I had really hoped this tea might reappear this year, but that does not seem to be in the cards. For now, I will continue to hoard the bit of this I have left and hope that one day it might reappear.

I’m assuming that this means you found a job for next year. Congrats. Now you can relax and enjoy some tea. Welcome back!!

I drank a cup of this today while we packed and sorted the tea cupboard. Given that a.) I bet away my tea buying privileges for a month and b.) we packed all but the essential teas, the samples we had, and the ones we don’t care too much for I might be facing a pretty limited six weeks of tea drinking!! Here’s hoping we find a house quickly and I can unpack my teas again! :P

As always, this is wonderful. Orangey but with a nice malty base tea that really works to make a mature tea taste. It is consistently one of my favourite orange teas and today was no different!
