103 Tasting Notes
After I realsied I had a weird craving for ginger, I picked up 25g of this this afternoon. Nice and warm and soothing and very spicy – exactly what I was looking for. It’s nice to get back to the basics every now and again! I will definitely be picking more of this up (especially when my stash of Hot Mama runs out).
I love Earl Grey blends, but oddly didn’t enjoy this one as much as I thought I would. It was still good, mind you, but there was a hint of… something in my cup that just tasted a little off. Maybe it was the rooibos (lord knows I have an up and down relationship with that). I wish they weren’t discontinuing the decaf earl grey, as I like that blend much better – I think true Earl’s are meant to be of the black tea family.
Man, the summer collection from DT this year so far is can’t miss! Another delicious offering! As I wanted to make this iced, I was a little wary of the mint flavour (I love it in hot teas, but iced is hit or miss), but as soon as I took my first sip, all my worries about that vanished. This is so good. And I didn’t even add sweetener, which apparently makes the melon flavour come out even more (I may try that at a later date, even though I usually do all my iced teas unsweetened). This blend is definitely a win!
Light and refreshing, this tea is definitely a win! I steeped this overnight to make some iced tea and mmmmm. Very peachy, just as the package claimed. I’m definitely going to have to stock up on this one before it goes away, as this is the plain, straight up peach flavour I have been looking for in an iced tea for a long, long time.
This is DELICIOUS, oh sweet gods. It kind of reminds me of Pink Flamingo, which is fine, because I love that blend as well. An excellent substitute for the alcoholic version, and definitely one I will be picking up again. My only hesitation is on the ‘heaviness’ of the tea and how expensive it will be to get a tin. Hopefully not too bad, because this is an excellent addition to the iced blends list.
At first sip, this reminded me of Sleigh Ride, which was excellent as Sleigh Ride is one of my absolute favourite favourites from Davids. Then the second and third sips set in and I realised it tasted a bit off. A couple additions of extra fruit flavours, I suppose. But whatever discomfort I had quickly vanished as I had three cups!
