26 Tasting Notes

I have been of late very disappointed in David’s Tea. They have been using more and more sweetener in their teas and I hate it, aka Blue Lagoon and Snickerdoodle. I think they are trying to tap into the younger generation who don’t drink tea and need the sweetness. But it also does not allow for new blends to be added where the tea is just good with nothing in it.

That said, I enjoyed Snickerdoodle on the second steep more because it still had that cinnamon flavour characteristic of the cookie, but none of the artificial sugary sweetness. The first steep was overwhelming and I drank it over a longer period. I was so excited for this tea and now I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. Somewhat in the middle I guess.

It’s funny how I always wanted to try this tea and never did until my advent calendar. It looks so good and fun with the gold balls. But when I did try it, it was no good. I’m not sure why, if it was oversteeping, not enough tea, or what but I thought it was too bland for me. I love black teas and I will give this one another try since there are so many people that like it.

Had this in my advent calendar. I really enjoyed this chai. I love rooibos in general so this was perfect. The spices were perfect. I didn’t put a lot of tea in my steeper, almost half of the little tin it comes in and I made two cups from it. You can taste the coconut, it’s very subtle, but brings down the tone of the tea and how spicy it is. Considering to put in my permanent collection.
