969 tasting notes

Ah super late tasting note! Today was crazy, class, then job interview, then taking my friend to davidstea for the first time :D i actually managed to not buy anything while there! She picked up a few teas, this being the one we tried when we arrived back at my place.

The smell is super peachy. A bit of floral, but mostly peach, with a bit of melon. Wet leaf was also very fruity.. Hmm, I was hoping a bit more floral to be honest, but the leaves look pretty! They unfolded enormously, and the pretty flowers are floating about. Very magical :)

Taste – wowza, i got tons of melon and peach!! I could have sworn this was a fruit tea! A slight bitterness near the end of sips, black teas doing I suppose. I would have liked a bit less of that fruit flavoring and a bit more floral once again, definitely more Jasmine! I love Jasmine haha.

Overall, a surprisingly tasty tea, but maybe not quite the flavor I was wanting (expecting?) however, I might pick up a sample of this the next time I’m at Davids to play with temperatures and things.

Yay for introducing my friend to buying loose leaf though! She really enjoyed this tea, which I am super pleased about :)

I’ve introduced a few friends to loose leaf, so far, and it’s a wonderful feeling. Congrats to you and welcome to your friend. :D

I’m so happy she finally bought some! She has been drinking DavidsTea Silver Needle White Tea at my place whenever she comes over for the past month, and she finally asked me to take her tea shopping. Such an awesome feeling! She always laughs at my tea buying, I told her it may have begun for her now! Haha :)

Hello all, I am a happily employed electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
