103 Tasting Notes
I was excited to try this one, as it presented a departure from my normal fruit-based oolongs. And it smelled amazing, and the first few sips tased really good. But then the flavour got really strong and really weird and I struggled to finish it. Maybe it was steeped for too long and/or had too many leaves, but this flavour sadly left a bad taste in my mouth.
I’d only had this in the store as a sample, and now that I’ve brewed this at home… Yeah, it’s still not my favourite black tea. If it was around, I’d drink it, but I probably won’t actively search this one out again. Something with the spice flavouring felt a little off to me, so I added some milk to make it a little more tolerable. But yeah, there are other flavoured black teas I will go to before this one. Alas.
The classic of all black teas and I had never tried the DT version before now. Imagine that! This is definitely a comfot tea because it is so familiar, and I love that. In my opinion it definitely does taste better than the pre-packaged/already in a bag varieties. Or maybe I’ve just become a tea snob this past year, haha.
I’m not usually a plain green tea drinker, but I had one of those $1 sample packs of this to try so I figured why not? This was my first try of a Korean green tea, and I have to say… I rather enjoyed the flavour. Not quite what I was suspecting, but a pleasant surprise nonetheless. When I want to purchase a straight green in the future at DT… I know which one I’m going for.
I wanted to give all the fall teas a go before they disappear for the season, and I finally got around to trying this one. I liked it, but not as much as other nutty blends that I have tried in the past. I also was not aware of the mulberry component until after the fact, and that is not a favoured ingrdient of mine in teas. But I did enjoy the creaminess and, overall, it was a good sample.
