14 Tasting Notes
David’s Tea seems to continue to blow me away with their new teas. Visited our store today, tasted this tea, bought a tin of 100 grams and haven’t stopped drinking it since! It isn’t bitter like some of their iced teas and has a nice natural taste to it. I am absolutely HOOKED!
Honestly, I was a little disappointed with this tea. It smelt A-M-A-Z-I-N-G I even tried the sugary candy before steeping the rest of my tea and it was delicious (obviously it’s straight sugar!) but I found it very bland and not tasty at all. It tasted like someone put water in a cup with a TINY bit of sugar to sweeten the water. I am always very good with timing my teas – I always put the timer on on my oven to make sure it’s steeped for the appropriate time and it still was tasteless.
This tea has always been around but I never really thought much of it because the thought of coffee in my tea just didn’t appeal to me. I LOVE coffee and I LOVE tea but I wasn’t sure if they were to go together. As a gift I received the Tiramisu combo tea pack and Coffee Purreh is one of the teas included. After using the combo pack I had a little bit of coffee purreh left so I tried it and fell in love. I have stuck to it for months and months EVERY day. So yesterday when I was at David’s tea the lady told me if you love coffee and chocolate you’ll like this blend. Just made myself a cup and instantly had to jump on steepster to give it a fabulous review! I think I’ve found my new favourite.. Thanks David!!
Flavors: Coffee, White Chocolate
Almost forgot how much I LOVED this tea until I was cleaning out the tea cupboard this morning. It is absolute heaven iced, haven’t tried it hot. But it’s definitely one of my favorites. As I use stevia to sweeten almost everything I eat I don’t even notice it. Much better for you then using Splenda or sugar twin! definitely a nice treat. :)
This tea definitely smells a lot sweeter then it tastes. When I first smelt it at the store I didn’t think it would have such a bitter taste to it. The girl also told me that she usually uses a TON of sweetener in her teas but for this one she doesn’t need too. That wasn’t the case for me.. Haven’t tried it hot, but I don’t think I’d recommend it on ice.
