204 Tasting Notes

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. >_>

drank English Breakfast by DAVIDsTEA

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!

drank Big Apple by DAVIDsTEA

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?

drank Coconut Grove by DAVIDsTEA
204 tasting notes

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).

drank Dragonwell by DAVIDsTEA
204 tasting notes

I think I liked this one more than I like a lot of senchas (Sencha Ashikubo not withstanding). It was very drinkable, not too bitter… I’m still getting a taste for straight greens, but this one is definitely under consideration to be an addition to my collection in that sense.

drank The Buzz by DAVIDsTEA
204 tasting notes

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.

drank Pure Chai (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
204 tasting notes

I realised I had 40g of this in my stash, so I decided to use some of it to make a latte – you can’t get more classic than something called ‘pure chai’, right?

Alas, maybe you can, because this was just okay. I mean, it was a tasty drink (and I cut down on the amount of milk I added, because the last time I made a latte on my own it was way too milky), but I wanted something a little more above average. The spice is there (very heavy on the cinnamon), but it smells better than it itastes, I have to say. I have a couple other chai blends, so maybe I’ll make lattes with those as well and see what the best one actually is.

drank Juicy Orange by DAVIDsTEA
204 tasting notes

Had a cup of this to go today from my local DT and… oh my word. I said I was looking for a tea with a straight up, strong orange flavour? THIS IS IT. I LOVE IT. The first couple of sips were okay, but by the time it had steeped for a while, the flavour turned out amazing. I don’t even think I can taste the hibiscus in this one, as it is a little on the sweet side. A good flavour profile to balance out the pu’reh base and I can’t wait to to get some for my stash!
