Minty Goodness!

Cocomint was the second herbal infusion I tried from Davids and I most certainly do enjoy it. I enjoy mint tea’s to begin with but the addition of coconut, apple and blackberry just make this one delightful tea.

Dry the leaves a large and a wide variety of colours, it has an evident aroma of mint; however not your typical overpowering spearmint, but a much softer mint aroma, probably the cream aspect of it, think light mint chocolate smell. While steeping the tea not much changes, the aroma is very minty but certainly not overpowering, which is common I find with mint.

The final brew is like a cup full of dessert, I add in a teaspoon of sugar and a dash of milk to this one to really bring out the flavor, good thing it doesn’t carry the calories of a dessert or I could have a problem!

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
