79 tasting notes

Well I am not going to sing about it, but its a pretty decent tasting tea I was actually surprised a bit. The lavender really sets it off, as most I was worried about this in my tea, but wow I would try another.

Dry this tea is full of color and fragrance it is not only pleasing to look at but to smell. The rooibos adds the contrast against the colorful bits of lavender and cornflower, which provide the amazing aroma. Steeping the tea will fill the air with a noticeable lavender smell that is far from overpowering.

The final brew is a reddish gold color and retains the lavender fragrance from the start, it is quite clear and amazingly there wasn’t many particles coming through my infuser, sometimes this can be an issue with the small pieces in a rooibos tea not just this specific tea. I actually enjoyed the taste of the tea, its not one I would find myself drinking on a regular basis but it certainly is a nice change between my black teas.

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?
