506 Tasting Notes

I need to give this tea another shot when I am willing to be a bit more patient. This time, the generic ha was the dominant taste and I really found myself looking for the fruit taste. I think this tea has potential though, so I am going to try brewing it a few different ways and maybe try a bit of sweetener and see where that gets me. Hopefully I have some more success with it!

drank Sweet Strawberry by DAVIDsTEA

A cupboard full of teas and this is what I come back to time and again… Heaven help me should this tea be discontinued, it is currently the best thing in my rather expansive cupboard. Luckily, I am so fickle that I am sure it will be something else I am in love with within the next week or so. :P

I am not generally a huge pu-erh fan, but this has such a nice, light, pu-erh base that I am actually a big fan. The dominant flavour, really makes this more of a berry tea. I don’t find this a fussy brew, it takes boiling water and a short steep or a long steep just fine. I like the decadence of things like chocolate pu-erhs, but this one tops them in terms of fresh, refreshing flavour.

I love cold and flu season, not. This is not a tea I reach for quickly or often, but it is not awful either. I like it when I have a bit of cold, because the menthol helps make me feel a but more human again. Though, I would not consider this a tea I drink for pleasure, it certainly makes having to drink cold fighting teas more enjoyable.

This was wonderful with just a touch of sugar! Lots of fruit flavour, and a super nice base. I loved that I definitely did get a lot of both the banana and the grape. This is a tea that is different, but that I think I could drink pretty frequently.

drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas
506 tasting notes

This was an interesting tea. I likes the sweetness to the genmaicha, but I am not sure I really got s’mores from it. I love genmaicha, so I enjoyed this tea, but I would enjoy a lot of genmaicha teas. I am going to try to sweeten this a bit more and see if I get a little more s’mores out of it.

VariaTEA

Have your tried Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha? If so, how does it compare?

I haven’t, I only have a couple of 52teas to try and this happened to be in stock at the time. If it helps at all, I really tasted the genmaicha and almost only genmaicha in this. There are sweet undertones, but I also sweetened the tea.

VariaTEA

Interesting. I have both but I only tried the Marshmallow Treat. Perhaps I will do a side by side taste test to see how they compare sometime.

I would be interested to hear how they compare!

drank Ice Cream Cake by DAVIDsTEA
506 tasting notes

Big thanks to Janelle, I had enough for one cup of this. I waited for the perfect evening. The boy is sleeping, our brand new kitten (a terribly pathetic but adorable four week old rescue) has finally fallen asleep on my lap, my show is on, and I am enjoying this tea. God I love this tea! The base is so smooth and it is such a sweet sugar hit. I am so crushed it is not available anymore. I can admit to occasionally stalking DT online hoping in vain that it will come up on clearance.

This was a much enjoyed cup and, who knows one day I might get another. :)

drank The Earl of Lemon by DAVIDsTEA
506 tasting notes

This was a very surprising tea. I was prepared not to like it because instinctively, I am not crazy about the smell of bergamot. However, this tea is a very mild version of bergamot. The citrus in the lemon really does wonders to temper it. This will likely never be my favourite white tea, but I am glad I have some of it to try!
