9 Tasting Notes
Teavana was having a 30% off promotion so I decided to go and get some Snow Geisha to try. The girl who served me asked, “Oh! You like Snow Geisha?” as if she was surprised. I told her that it was going to be my first time trying it, and I was interested in it because of the cherry. She showed me other teas with similar components and I decided that Sakura Allure smelled the best (dry, at least).
So I make myself a cup while working on more homework, God won’t I happy when this semester is over!
I’ve been drinking this absentmindedly while working, and I’ve just realized that hey, this is pretty good. I didn’t know what to expect but I love green tea and I love cherries and I love trying new teas, so I wondered if this would hit the trifecta.
This is very fruity, surprisingly a bit tart, and it is SO comforting. Not in the chamomile-comforting-kind of way, but a more pleasant, quiet tea. I bet this would be fantastic iced.
Okay, Stormy Night, you’ve redeemed yourself. I found myself insensibly craving this tea the day after I first tried it. It’s become my new favourite tea, I think. Rum flavour and all.
I’ve already taken advantage of DAVIDsTEA’s current promo to get 50g free… twice. And I’m debating if I should go back a third time. I’m worried it’s going to be discontinued.
I felt a sore throat coming on so I made myself a cup of Cold 911.
This isn’t really my favorite tea… it is made for colds after all… but it really does the trick.
I steeped one teaspoon of Cold 911 with half a teaspoon of Lemon Myrtle. I feel quite creative today.
DavidsTea currently has a promotion to get 50g of Stormy Night. I love trying new teas, so I jumped at the chance. I mean, chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon and coconut? Sounds like heaven.
Dry: It smells like rum. I don’t really understand why. Perhaps it’s the coconut that’s making me think of Malibu?
Yup, it tastes like rum too. With the slightest, slightest tinge of chocolate. I have to admit it’s a very smooth and pleasant tea, but nothing as I was expecting.
I made myself a cup of this a few weeks ago. I had really high hopes for this tea, since it seemed to be one of the best from the summer collection. It was just okay though, perhaps passionfruit isn’t my thing after all.
My Takeya pitcher arrived in the mail and I decided to try it out on Lime Gelato. Result: I must not know how to make iced tea. It was bleh.
I tried again yesterday with Pink Passionfruit, hoping it would redeem itself when it was iced. I don’t think my iced tea skills have improved any. It seems awfully weak, very watered down.
Verdict: this would have been better in the summer.
Edit: I ordered Pink Passionfruit when it was a web special from DavidsTea’s website. It came in a cardboard-type canister and I think it’s seriously affecting the taste of the tea.
I can’t decide which is better, the taste or the pink color of the tea.
This tea just might be a new favorite since I’m taking note of both.
This tea is wonderful. I didn’t have very high hopes for it – but I do like almonds and I knew this was one of the more popular of DavidsTeas.
This is pleasantly almond tasting with a hint of cinnamon. I had to add some natural agave to sweeten it up even more.
EDIT: EUREKA! I added a few ice cubes and put this in the fridge overnight. When I took a sip in the morning, it hit me; this tastes exactly like Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal!
This tea is surprisingly pleasant! The peppermint and cornflower petals mix wonderfully, but I don’t notice the coconut as much, which I don’t mind at all. It is soothing and novel, and I can’t wait to see what its name will be.
I received this tea as a sample from my online order from DAVIDsTEA. I’ve been meaning to try it but never made the commitment.
The pistachio aroma is promising! Steeped, this smells just like pistachio muffins.
This is a very pleasant tea, comforting and simple. I’m not tasting pistachio as much as I am smelling it, however.
