80 Tasting Notes
While I do love strong teas, I’m always wary of hibiscus. That said, I did enjoy this one, even if I probably let it steep a bit too long. I did really enjoy the berry flavours to this, which probably upped my rating. I want to enjoy more mate blends from DT other than Chocolate Rocket, and I think this was a good choice on my part. Definitely will be having this one again.
I’m a little more wary of chocolate teas than I used to be, mainly because I’ve come to realise that I don’t like my teas super sweet. But this blend worked, and I added some milk for a creamier texture (and to possibly lessen the taste of the plain rooibos). A very nice dessert tea – and one I think I’ll be trying again!
I’m not sure what to make of this one… I (mostly) liked it, but I don’t think it was spectacular. Maybe I’m just not as fan of floral teas as I am the fruit ones? Or maybe I steeped it for too long – I seem to do that with anything that has green tea in it. I generally like most of the other types of tea nice and strong, but I keep forgetting I don’t need to steep green as long.
I’m not quite sure what to make of this one! The cucumber smell is very, very potent, which kinf of turned me off a little, but when I brewed it up, I found a few other flvours to help balance it out a little. I had to take my time in drinking this, but as I did, I found myself getting used to the taste more and more. I suspect I’ll need another cup or two to fully make up my mind, haha.
I gave this one a go today from my local DT store – I have to be in a particular mood for jasmine tea, and I was intrigued that this one had a black tea base instead of a green. The jasmine taste was still pretty stong even with the addition of some milk – and the weird thing is that it didn’t taste all that different from a lot of green tea bases. Hmm.
Another new taste from the spring collection – and this is the one I was the most vary of as I am not a big green tea drinker. The smell of this one was amazing and while the taste didn’t quite live up to the smell, I was still happy with my cup. Very light and refreshing and I think I’m going to try it iced next.
I wish I had known about this earlier, before the newsletter came out that this one was being discontinued. I don’t usually drink decaf tea, but I do wish I could drink more black teas before bed, so I’m glad I stumbled across this, at least for a little while. I love the amount of bergamot in this, and this is perfect with a little bit of milk.
I picked up 100g of this going on the smell alone and after my first cold brew? Mmmm. Excellent decision, self! It was delicious! I tend to cold brew the majority of my fruit-based teas and I decided I needed a new flavour to balance out my stash of Bear Trap and Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait. Love the pineapple and blueberry flavours, and I see myself getting more of this and mixing it in with other flavours to get some awesome fruit iced teas! :)
