767 Tasting Notes

Thanks to KallieBoo! for a sample of this in our mystery swap!
I don’t drink matcha very often even though I have 2 flavours from Red Leaf. I guess it is because I am not the biggest fan of green teas. However, I find flavoured matchas to be quite lovely.

This one is kind of weird. It tastes very much like bubblegum, the kind that I used to chew as a kid and blow huge bubbles with. But….it is super weird to drink bubble gum.

My thoughts exactly when I had this one, too. I think my kids would probably like it. My brain gets in the way of true enjoyment.

I haven’t tried this, but I imagine that it would be like the bubblegum-flavoured fluoride rinse I used to get at school.

MissB

It definitely tastes significantly better than that. It’s quite tasty, it’s just weird drinking something I only chew and spit out.

MissB is totally right…“my brain gets in the way of enjoyment”…..it’s like “no don’t drink bubblegum”

I don’t think that this tea has a thick enough mouthfeel to taste like egg nog. However, I still really enjoy this tea, with its Christmas spices and sweetness.
Maybe I will try it as a latte and see what happens.

This tea was pretty good. Yesterday I had wrote the brewing parameters on the bag. So when I brewed this up today, I didn’t look at the ingredients. I usually try not to read ingredients or tasting notes before I try a tea so I can just taste the tea and not worry about whether I am tasting certain ingredients and such.

Anyway, as I was drinking this tea, I was picking up on a lot of citrus notes. I thought my palate was off, but then u checked the ingredients, and it said orange peels…. Good, I’m not crazy.
I found this to be a decent oolong, but I think I would prefer caramel flavours without the citrus.

Day 2 of the 12 days of Christmas. I probably would not have ordered this for myself, so I am glad that I got to try it in this box!
It was ok hot, but cold is where this tea shines (who likes hot root beer anyway?). It tastes very much like root beer. There is also the ice cream with sweet vanilla. Delicious tea. I might pick some up in the summer as an iced tea if it’s available sometime.

Sipdown. This was brewed super strong tonight because there was only a tad bit left in the bag so I just poured it all in. Of course, with some eggnog. It was delicious!!
As much as I didn’t enjoy this at first, I ended up really liking it when made as a latte.

Day 1 of the 12 days of Christmas sampler. I am assuming everyone would have opened it by now and I am not ruining the suprise for anyone.

I brewed this up fully expecting not to like this tea because I am not much of a fan of spicy things. However, I actually really enjoy this. The green base is lost in all the cinnamon and spice but that’s ok with me because greens are usually my least preferable tea anyway. It isn’t quite as spicy as I thought it would be.

And “The Hobbit” is awesome. I want to go see the new one soon!

80 degrees for 3 minutes

The new one is epic!! Go see it ASAP :D I want to see it again and I just saw it Thursday opening night haha

Mmmm I had this in the morning. I accidentally steeped it for 4 minutes. It was a little overstepped but not too bad. Still delicious. I very much enjoy the smooth caramel in this tea!

I love chocolate, so of course I would order this tea. I am actually being overwhelmed by tea! And my verdant and Butiki orders haven’t even arrived yet! Just my zen tea and Della terra orders have come so far.
Anyway, back to the tea. The marshmallow was probably the most prominent note followed by graham cracker and then a little hint of chocolate. I would have liked the chocolate to be more prevalent, but this is very enjoyable nonetheless.

Sipdown. I enjoyed this while I had it to curb my sweet tooth occasionally. But, I am not too sad to see it go.

drank Jolly Jellybean by DAVIDsTEA

Sipdown of this tonight. I actually mixed it with my remaining amount if birthday cake to make up a pot to have with the inlaws. I didn’t have enough of either tea on its own, so I combined them. The flavours are similar enough that they mixed together ok. I enjoyed this tea while I had it when I wanted something sweet. It saved me from wanting dessert (which usually means a lot of calories) at least.
I am not too sad that it’s gone though.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
