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.
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.
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.
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.
