79 tasting notes

A little slice of delicious in a cup.

So this tea was given to me as a gift with the knowledge of my enjoyment of dessert teas. And it certainly ranks up there with some of my tasty tea’s; however it takes a hit as I prefer this tea as a latte more then a straight tea as it ends up really tasting like cake.

Dry this tea has a wonderful chocolate and carob aroma to it, and it certainly looks like the beginnings of cake batter with all the sprinkles and chocolate pieces.

Steeped the tea takes on a more pronounced carob aroma but is still quite pleasing. It becomes a very dirty and murky tea, I suspect this is the sprinkles as Red Velvet Cake does the exact same thing. Takes pretty good by itself, but it really comes to life with some milk or done as a latte.

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?
