4 Tasting Notes
I wandered into DAVIDS before Christmas and was handed a taster of White Chocolate Frost. I was immediately delighted as soon as this minty tea hit my lips because it tasted exactly like those limited edition candy cane Hersey Kisses and preceded to purchase 30 g. When I actually brewed up a cup at home it looked like I poured greasy chicken broth into my tea cup, if that wasn’t unappealing enough it tasted so strongly of peppermint and greasy tea dregs that I could hardly bring myself to believe this was the tea I had tried in store. Even at around a 1 minute steep time, its much too strong. And the grease? Well thats because of all the chocolate shavings added to the tea.
I never found the idea of “blueberry jam” tea appealing, that is until I tried it. Blueberry Jam is a fine grain tea, and turns the water purple. There is a good balance between black tea/blueberries and overall its a lovely way to start a morning off. I enjoy my cup with milk, however only a small amount is necessary. Too much milk and you lose the delicate taste that the blueberries give.
