734 Tasting Notes

the green smells like grass to me. or maybe old spinach. or seaweed. something about the way the pepper mixes with the green i think? or maybe it’s the safflower? i don’t think i’ve had much safflower.
this tea just does not want to be my friend.
i know,… it’s not the tea, it’s me.

exactly what i need right now.
basically i’m having tea for lunch cuz i had a big breakfast and i’ll have a big dinner.
brought a handful of davids ‘24 days of tea’ with me to try.
my very last box from them arrived last night. now i have the winter tree teapot and bubble mugs, as well as two gongfu teapots and bubble mugs. i’m ready for a tea party! as soon as my communal house finishes renovating our kitchen i’m gonna put all my tea and accessories in the cupboards and take pictures.

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA

good morning!
I WAS gonna save this to drink with my sister. but I have bad impulse control and wasn’t thinking when I packed it for my trip. black tea black tea black tea!
it’s a nice tea. Not sure it’s my favorite or anything, but it’s nice. Maybe best at night after dinner like as a cocktail alternative. It tastes … adult.

appropriately drinking this tea as i read this http://archiveofourown.org/works/324584?view_full_work=true
the scent of this tea is very strange to me, sweet but ‘off’. and it intrigues me over and over.
i think i like it?
i’ll have to get back to you on that.

CHAroma

I completely agree with you. The scent is sweet but off.

this has been the best monday ever.
i’m pretty sure i decided this would be the first tea to try weeks ago.
i imagined it would be bolder than it is, but i do like it! perhaps i’ll brew a double strong cup next time just to see.

Em

Love your photo!! Looks like you’ll be having a lot of fun!

canadianadia

Oh man…that picture looks like a good time!
