drank Buttercream by DAVIDsTEA
135 tasting notes

So glad I gave this another chance! I’ve had a 25g bag sitting around for quite a while now. I tried it hot a couple of times when I got it, and I was thoroughly unimpressed. I tried it both straight up and with milk and sugar, but I just found it pretty bland.

I finally organized my tea cupboard the other week, and came across this guy. I thought I might try it iced, and it’s so much better! It’s light and creamy and a little fruity. I don’t really get a buttercream flavour but that’s okay. I had my girlfriend taste it without telling her what it’s supposed to taste like, and she said it reminded her of the earl’s garden, but I don’t get it. She be crazy :P

I think I’ll be having this one quite often now that I’ve figured out how to do it right! At 4 mins it wasn’t bitter at all either.

Bio

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
