1805 Tasting Notes


I was recently given one of these to use for a time, while a friend was out of the country. I love it. While I enjoy making tea traditionally, this is a great tool for when I am running low on time and want tea to take with me.
More to come!

Drinking a couple of cups of this from my hedgehog mug increases the awesome severalfold.

drank Peanut Butter Cup by DAVIDsTEA
1805 tasting notes

Excerpt from my full review:
“Sweet, nutty, and delectable, my only regret is that I did not steep it longer. I feel as though this an herbal blend made better by long steep times. The cocoa does not overwhelm the flavor but goes well with the nuttiness. Interestingly, the nut flavors taste like sweet, roasted peanuts on the beginning and then more like almonds on the finish. A sweet, nutty aftertaste lingers on the tongue. The experience with this herbal blend nicely encompasses aroma and flavor together, which I really appreciate.”

Sipping this for the first time with a tea chum…musty, smooth, creamy, and mmm-inducing.

Three cups later, I think the morning should be allowed to begin.

After yesterday’s pu’erh cravings, I brought this into the office from the stash at home. Best decision I have made all week. Cups of this all morning.

EDIT: And apparently cups for part of the afternoon. Five 12-oz. cups down. Delicious, delicious, delicious.

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
