1158 Tasting Notes

This one is good. The raisin and plum notes are prominent in my opinion. The cocoa notes are only there for a brief second. there is a baked goods aroma wafting out of the cup.

I am learning that I love black tea much more than pu’erh but I really enjoyed this one. The cocoa nibs add a deep chocolate flavour to the earthy base. It is very pleasant and resteeps multiple times. The resteeps hold up in flavour really well

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA
1158 tasting notes

I didn’t get around to getting to the mall this year before Christmas to get the winter teas. I get a bag of this every year.
Lo and behold, my husband bought me a Christmas gift package that had a bag of this tea, Santa’s secret white chocolate bar, and a shiny new “perfect teaspoon”.
I really enjoy this tea as an egg nog latte. The mint isn’t overpowering and it is slightly sweet. Delicious.

The chocolate bar is kinda weird to be honest. I love chocolate, but white chocolate has never really been my favourite. But hey, I will never turn down chocolate. The crunchy tea bits are a little weird. I kinda thought it would be infused into the chocolate somehow, not actual leaves. I probably wouldn’t purchase one myself. There is much better chocolate out there (Lindor—I’m looking at you ;)). It was enjoyable enough.

I have been a little disappointed with David’s chocolates. So much potential with what they are trying to do, but the chocolate doesn’t deliver in flavor and complexity.

Hmm, this tea had been on my radar for awhile but I never bought it. I always saw it at the grocery store but always had too much tea to justify buying it. Haha, I still have way too much tea but what the heck, I just bought it anyway. #neverenoughtea
Ok, I’ll stop rambling now. I thought this one was a little weird. It was more citrus than I was expecting and leaves a really odd aftertaste.
I will have to steep again before making my final decision.

This was so good! I am wishing there was a little more caramel. Sorry, that’s all I remember about it. I had this awhile ago but life had been crazy.

Oops, dealing with kids and this cuppa was lukewarm by the time I took my first sip. And by then, my body was saying "just give me the caffeine " so I guzzled it. Lol, no tasting note here. It tasted like cherries, that’s all I remember.
Did anyone else have a day like that?

hah. that sounds about right. It was a crunch time day at work. Student grades depended on our accuracy… and they were due!

Not sure why, but lately Earl grey teas just isn’t something that I crave like I used to. I used to want to try all the earls. Not sure what is up with that. Oh well
Anyway, I was in the mood for some Earl grey and this is definitely a good one! The maple actually tastes fairly natural, not sugar candy sweet which is nice.

I absolutely enjoyed this wonderful tea. Chocolate and vanilla, what’s not to love? It was very smooth without any hint of astringency. There are very slight fruity notes hiding in the background.
I really should have got more than the one ounce I ordered. It’s not too soon to make another order yet right…..

Mmm so glad I finally tried this company.
This tea is delicious. Ya’ll know I love white tea. The base is creamy and dreamy.
Sweet, but not overly so or fake sugar tasting. The eggy flavour is there with just a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. The spices could have been a tad bit stronger in my opinion but overall, a very good tea.
The resteep at 5 minutes was just as lovely as the first.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. 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.
