21 Tasting Notes
so i recently received an email from davids tea reminding me that easter is around the corner and they have some chocolate flavour tea. of them, read my lips is the chocolatiest and other great claims. it smells great, looks great, and tastes good even unsweetened.
can’t rate this tea because i didn’t have it alone. teavana gave me a sample with it blended with blueberry bliss, sweetened and then chilled. it was so good!
couldn’t find anything i liked about it and it marginally tasted like chemicals. i just don’t like the three flavours.
it was good, of course. very pure tasting.
tasted like kool-aid. of course, the sample made at teavana was sweetened.
way to go on me that i waited that long before drinking this tea. let’s see, that trip to london was in ‘05 and i started drinking this in ’12 … no harm done. it’s still good.
unmistakeable coconut scent but it’s really pale in the tea.
mint tea is definitely growing on me … will i love it one day? peppermint is still too strong but this was pretty light.
Maybe yes – pleasantly cheeky name with the word “forever” in it. @whoisnpy commented it tastes like a cinnamon bun!
mostly oolong and pu’erh. sounds fancy but the latter is old school tea that’s more bitter-tasting. drank it lots but i’m not skinny!
