1131 Tasting Notes
This tea puts me back up to 200 teas….so much for being under 200! I knew it wouldn’t last too long!
And this is tasting note 750!!!!
I really enjoyed the combination of coconut and mint with the black tea, but I found there to be a bitter aftertaste. What is it with me incorrectly brewing blacks lately?
My bad, I will try to brew this for less time and at a lower temp.
I received this tea in January, but just cracking into it now. I opened the bag and it smelled very strongly of alcohol. I brewed it up, hoping the alcohol smell would go away, or the tea at least wouldn’t smell like alcohol, but now it’s all I can smell/taste.
Has anyone else had this problem?
I read somewhere (I don’t remember where) that some teas are flavoured with alcohol, and if “aired out” for awhile, it will evaporate or something like that. Does anyone know?
UPDATE: I left this open overnight and it no longer smells like alcohol. I brewed it up and it was delicious, but I did not have the time to actually pay attention enough to write a tasting note. More to come later….
I tried to purchase this last spring, but it seemed to be sold out every time I was at my David’s. But, I don’t get it because this doesn’t taste THAT great to me. It’s not like it is Pumpkin Chai or something delicious, but each to their own I guess.
To me, this tastes pretty artificial, and there isn’t much black tea in there. Which I guess is ok if I wanted a lower caffeine black.
Iced, it is marginally better.
I don’t know, maybe I am just falling out of love with DAVIDsTEA a little bit. The artificial flavours are sometimes a little too fake. Or maybe I just love mango too much and I was expecting so much more.
I am with a few other people on here who say that the base is a little too strong in this one. I found it a little bitter, but that might have been a brewing error. I will have to try it at 2 minutes to see if this is the case or not. I guess I should also try this iced, since it is a spring tea.
In other words, I am not that big of a fan.
