drank Grape Expectations by DAVIDsTEA
268 tasting notes

Another sample from Virginia! This tea had a very subtle grape flavor, which I was not expecting based on my experience with DT’s blueberry jam. I was grateful that it wasn’t too overpowering. It smelled quite grape-y and when first brewed, the initial taste with each sip was grape. Like I said, it was very subtle, so it was more like a memory of grape. Then the green base would come through, which tasted savory with grass and hay notes. However, once it cooled, I could taste the green base more strongly with hints of grape floating in the background. This tea was decent, but I probably wouldn’t buy more as I am not a huge lover of grape flavored things or green teas. It was fun trying it though!

Tea-obsessed, book worm scientist.

I love black tea, especially Chinese black tea- I’m looking at you Fujians and Yunnans! I also enjoy Indian teas, mostly first flush darjeelings (and a select few assams).
I think I’m recently starting to like oolongs better though- gasp! I’ve been cheating on my black teas with all these lovely, alluring green floral oolongs. Sorry I’m not sorry.
White tea gets a lot of love too! I am particularly fond of silver needle whites.
I can’t seem to appreciate green teas and rooibos is foul, IMO.

Other interests: Books! Board games! Nerdy entertainment like Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, all the nature documentaries, etc etc. Also Disney!

I’m up for swaps!
