2 Tasting Notes
This was the first DAVIDsTEA I ever had, and it drew me into their teas right from the first whiff of the dry leaf. As soon as we got back to my friend’s apartment, I brewed mug. It is fantastic, and I’m glad I got 100g right off the bat. I’m going to have to go for another before the month is out, I can tell.
The tea is very rich and smooth, and just a splash of whole milk really turned this into a nice treat. It’s really nice for when I get home from work at night and just want to curl up with a mug of tea and unwind.
I had a hard time finding a good way of drinking this tea. The dry leaf aroma is outstanding, and I could probably just sniff at my little jar of tea all day and be perfectly happy.
I think I oversteeped the tea both times I tried it, so I actually discovered Steepster while trying to figure out the best method of drinking this tea. The third time I tried is the charm, though I might add a bit of full-fat milk in a further cup. I can taste the caramel, but as other reviewers said, no salt. I did add a bit of brown sugar, which really brought out the caramel for me and made it a nice tea to drink. I don’t think it’ll be a permanent part of my cupboard, but I am happy I found a good means of drinking it now.
