336 Tasting Notes

A sample from the lovely Courtney.

I feel terrible that it took me this long to try this tea. I usually shy away from straight teas, preferring blends, but I really like this one. It reminds me of the tea they serve in Chinese restaurants but richer and completely lacking in astringency. Bonus, this was the perfect accompianment to some blueberry white chocolate oatmeal cookies (had after shoveling snow, so the calories don’t count, right?).

I really enjoyed this and may have to seek out some unflavored oolongs in the future. Thank you, Courtney!

I love this one.

With milk and sugar (because its hot chocolate after all!), this is perfect to curl up with while awaiting Snowpocalypse 2016.

Work tea.

This one was sweet though the chocolate was subtle. A roasty and earthy tea.

Sipdown!

Pretty standard Earl Grey. Best with some sugra added as it’s very astringent otherwise.

Oh yum.

It’s been freezing here and I was in the mood for something hot – enter this tea. I made it with some milk and sugar and it was fantastic. I got lots of chocolate flavor. It was kind of thin because this is tea and not hot chocolate, but still very satisfying.

I love this tea. After so many “meh – it’s fine” teas, it was so nice to drink something that I thoroughly enjoyed. Too bad it’s discontinued.

This was very thick and sweet and a lot of the nut flavor came through for me. I was going to describe it as a cake or muffin, but I see “cookie” in the flavors list, which is also accurate. I don’t know. It’s just … Happy. Like comfort food dessert but in tea form. I want more of this…

But, if it does have Macadamia nuts, I might be in luck with the unopened Mulberry Magic in my cupboard. It feels good to be excited about tea again.

Sipdown! But since I forgot to add this to my cupboard, I haven’t actually decreased my numbers any.

I like this. It’s got a lot of cinnamon and undefined spiciness but its not overwhelming. I might be tempted by this again as it made a nice, forgiving work tea. Plus, it smells like a cinnamon cookie and who doesn’t love that?

Happy new year, steepster!

Finished this one off on New Years Eve but was too lazy to write about it. I’m glad to see it go because its lost a lot of flavor. There’s the suggestion of catalope and a whisper of cream.I wish I’d gotten back to this sooner -it was excellent fresh.

drank Peach Matcha by DAVIDsTEA

Sipdown #10!

Had this whisked into cold milk this morning with breakfast. Very smooth peach milkshake kind of flavor. Only downside? I accidentally sprayed matcha all over my counter and breakfast when I went to whisk it. Urgh.

I always let this one cool too much – it goes from nicely balanced orange-oat to oaty explosion! This was mostly the latter last night. Not bad but it won’t be missed.

I became interested in tea spring 2013, when some friends of mine brought me to a local tea shop. I’ve been experimenting since, and am absolutely in love! I am especially fond of blended teas, and I’m a sucker for gimicky flavors.

My cupboard is stocked with a lot of DAVIDsTEA at the present, although I do have a few teas from some local shops. I’m looking forward to branching out and trying teas from different vendors and shops. Let the journey begin!
