213 Tasting Notes

I’ve had a couple of cups of this in the past few days – mmmm. I LOVE Darjeelings, and I especially love this particular blend. Black tea has always been my favourite, and this one is a super comforting drink – right behind the Earl Grey family. I add a splash of milk and I get into a happy mood. I want a Darjeeling present in my tea cupboard at all times, haha.

One of my favourite straight oolongs, and thankfully it’s in a price range I can afford, haha. It’s been a while since I’ve had this one, and as soon as my cupboard clears out a little I think I ought to bring back some of this.

Do you find this one very floral-y or more roasty?

I got more floral notes out of this one, for sure!

I think I got ginseng confused with ginger, because I remember this tea tasting not at all like I was expecting it to, LOL. And that’s probably tainting my rating of it, but so be it. Not terrible, but there are definitely other oolongs I will reach for before I pick this one.

drank Pink Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA

One of my favourite teas to make iced, so this BETTER make a comeback – I’m still hoarding on to what’s left of my stash for as long as I can. This tastes almost like juice and I can mix it with just about anything else to add a bit of extra oomph of flavour.

drank Gold Rush (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

Again, another tea that’s a bit to expensive for my tastes. The coconut and caramel taste is a bit of a weird one to me, so I don’t like this as much as most other people appear to. I think I like my coconut flavours blended with fruit above all else. The cup of this I had a while back was good, but I don’t think I’ll go for it again on my own.

drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

One of the first teas by DT I ever had! It’s been a while since I’ve had this one, but I do enjoy the fruit notes that this one has – I’m a sucker for anything that has peach as an ingredient. I remember the first and second steepings being so much better than a third, so I think just two goes it all that I can get out of this one.

I think I need to either use fewer leaves with one, or steep less because my first sample of this was oh my god potent. More rooibos than blueberry, and that is not a good thing in my book. Next time I make this I’ll rate it again and see if the flavour improves – I hope it does, because I was excited to see a blueberry flavour.

A decent, generic breakfast tea. I like it better than bagged blends, but I guess I was sort of expecting more from it? Maybe I’ve become a bit of a tea snob over the past couple of years!

Way too much licorice for my liking! I originally drank it to sooth a sore throat, and while that worked, I’ve found ginger will also do the same thing for me and I like ginger teas far better. I’m not upset I tried it, but I won’t be getting any more.

drank Oolong Supreme by DAVIDsTEA

Again, another expensive blend that I won’t be getting a lot of. I’m kind of ‘meh’ on straight oolongs, but I’m realising that you get what you pay for and this one is delicious. Definitely a higher quality than what I’m used to – sadly my wallet cannot made the jump, LOL. I added a little bit of milk to this one on my first couple of steepings, but maybe next time I’ll just have it plain.
