175 Tasting Notes
Another sample from months ago, possibly poorly stored.
I had this last night while cleaning and it’s delicious. It’s very creamy with hints of cinnamon and caramel; easily one of the more dessert-like teas I’ve had from DavidsTea.
I can’t decide if this is something worth having around or not.
Another that I’ve run out of and forgot to log… I really ought to pay more attention to what’s in my Steepster cupboard. >.>
I liked this one, but found it a bit biting. It’s a good apple tea with a hint of cinnamon. Enjoyable and very appropriate for the winter holiday season.
Dry, this one smells like the scented markers they gave us in Kindergarten. I thoroughly confused my fiance last night when I held the bag of this under his nose and demanded, “Doesn’t it smell like a magic marker?” If he didn’t think I was crazy before, he probably does now… (That IS what this tea smells like though. It’s not my fault if his elementary school wasn’t as awesome as mine.)
I steeped this one for 7 minutes and got a VERY minty tea; after I’d finished the cup, the cooling sensation from the mint lingered in the back of my throat. The fruit flavor is reminiscent of watermelon and very light. It’s more of an accent to the mint flavor if anything.
Overall, this is an enjoyable tea, but I’m not sure I’d want it in anything other than a sample package.
I’ve had a sample of this for a while and put off trying it after striking out with the previously-adored Coffee Pu’erh.. I probably haven’t stored this all that well (zip lock baggie), but it still smells strongly of cinnamon. Taste wise it’s a lot of hay with the cinnamon adding a faint heat. Not bad, but I like Hot Cinnamon Spice so much better.
Still, I’m glad I got to try this one!

This was a post-dessert tea last night and I’m really regretting my choice there. It’s so yummy and sweet that I didn’t need dessert! Curse you, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream! Curse you!
This is a lovely tea, one that lives up to its name. Hot it’s identical to cotton candy and doesn’t make your hands sticky! As it cools, it loses that cotton candy flavor and transforms into a sweet tea that’s easy to drink.
I’m going to need a lot of this one…
After enjoying a relaxing long weekend with my finance, I’m sick. It’s not even the good kind of sick (pardon the oxymoron) where you sleep for a day and feel better. Nope. This is the sort of cold that both keeps you awake and insists that you sinuses also be plugged.
I received this as a sample in my most recent order. It’s not something I’d ordinarily try as I historically haven’t been a huge fan of ginger in my tea. Truthfully, I keep expecting to hate this one, but I don’t. It’s spicy and hot and really soothing. I’ve already gone through a pot and I’m making another.
The only downside is that I don’t have any more of this. I can see it being really helpful when I’m back at work tomorrow.
