186 Tasting Notes
Oh, Davids Tea has hit me right in my weak spot with this one – Earl Greys! I stopped in today for a sample and oh my word, was this ever delicious. I know I am heavily biased into loving basically everything Earl Grey that wanders into my life, but I LOVED this. And I’m not really into chocolate teas anymore, but the floral addition and the Earl Grey base saved it for me. I added a little bit of milk to make this creamier, but I think it’d be fine just straight up. Definitely going back to get more of this before it goes away. I NEED this in my stash, ASAP.
I need to adjust my rating on this one, I think – I don’t think I enjoy it as much as I did in the past, sigh. Very, very tart – and I only have about half the normal amount of leaves in that I would normally put in my timolimo. It tastes like raspberries, which I appreciate, but it’s almost to the point now where I’m puckering up my face as I drink it! I think this one is far better enjoyed iced, so I may have to put this in my iced tea stash after today. >_>
I haven’t had this blend in a while, so I figured I’d give it a proper review. I picked some of this up yesterday for my need to have a plain, straight black tea to have in my stash at work. And it was cheap, so problem solved. I like this – it’s very basic, but that’s what I like about English Breakfast blends. Black tea as it should be!
I’m not sure if I’ve properly reviewed this one before, but in case I haven’t… here we go! Had this tonight as a friend still had some in her stash. I’m not sure it tastes like what I remember, but I may have had the steep temperature a little too high. >_> In any case, this didn’t taste as apple-y as I thought, and it had some other profile I can’t quite put my finger on. Caramel, perhaps?
It’s hard for me to distinguish between this and Coconut Oolong – and both taste yummy! I don’t get to have white teas very often, which is a sad thing, as I really enjoyed this one. Very sweet with the coconut, but I added a splash of milk to make it little extra creamy. I hope this one comes back!
I haven’t had a gyokuro-based green in a long time, and I wanted to try it to see if I liked it better then the senchas from DT. It doesn’t quite wow me as much as Sencha Ashikubo, but I did enjoy it better than I thought I would! Definitely a grassy taste, but not too powerful, from what I found. Again, if it wasn’t so darn expensive, I’d have this in my stash!
Only had a small sample of this when I dropped in to my store today, but it definitely intrigued me. I think I’m going to have to get a full cup to fully appreciate the taste, but I liked what I had. I never really thought about combining ginger and peppermint (with everything else that this blend has going for it).
Picked up 10g of this last night (I wanted to try it when I was at the mall, but there was no way I was drinking mate at 9:30pm, haha) and figured I’d give it a go this morning. Definitely nice and citrus-y, which I like, with just a touch of ginger for a bit of added kick. I’m hoping the caffeine mix will kick in later, but as it stands right now, I like this one. I think I just need to lower the water temperature a little, because I’m practically burning my tongue.
