drank Splash! by DAVIDsTEA
903 tasting notes

This one will also be a sipdown..haha man this tea is old! It was part of my first online DT order back in September 2012. Longgg time ago! I made this in my iced tea jug, the rest of the bag (probably..15-20g?) steeped in 195 degree water (half the jug full) for 3 mins then topped up with cold water and put in the fridge. It’s now chilling for a few hours. We will see how it tastes, it smells pretty good so I think it will be quite refreshing. This tea served me well, I just had too much of it (50g) to be able to get through it quickly. When I eventually restock, I will get about 20g just to have on hand. It is more of a summery tea to me, but today looks warm out, although it’s like – 30C lol. It’s all sunny and there’s a breeze..I can pretend lol. I will try to update about the flavor, but if I forget, here’s to you old tea, it’s been a splash! Lol, see previous notes.

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (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’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

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 recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
