drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA
242 tasting notes

Last night, Jake and I decided to take this for a spin while he made us up some fantastic nachos. I ended up enjoying the nachos a lot more than I did this tea. It reminds me a little too much of a truly terrible pie I made a couple Thanksgivings ago… that I couldn’t get anyone to eat – bourbon molasses pecan pie. It would help if anyone we knew actually liked bourbon!

While this tea doesn’t taste like bourbon, that strong molasses is certainly coming through… after the rooibos and honeybush, that is. That pair are the dominators of this tea, only allowing the gingerbread flavors to pipe up after they have had their say.

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.

Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
