drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA
2368 tasting notes

I love talking to the staff and DAVIDs because they are always so happy and friendly and awesome. Today I just ran in to get my $1 refill so I wasn’t there long but when the girl helping me asked if I wanted it sweetened my response was “no thank you, it really doesn’t need it.” She then told me how yesterday someone came in for cotton candy tea and added two pumps of agave to the brew and then some more sugar before she left which honestly is insane because this tea is liquified cotton candy for sure and it is especially sweet iced.

LORD. I think some people’s sweet tooths are attuned to different types of sweetness. Like, I put a horrific amount of sugar in my coffee (and I know it) and it still doesn’t taste excessively sugary to me after adding like 6 sugar sachets, but ice wine is so cloying it makes me gag.

Two pumps and then sugar IS insane, though.

Sami I also add a lot more sugar to coffee than I do to tea. I think it’s just because coffee is much stronger and it takes more sugar to make it taste sweet. So don’t feel bad! :P

That makes me feel sick just thinking about that amount of sugar! Holy cow!

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
