22 Tasting Notes
My coworker brought in some advent calendar teas, so I gave this a try. It’s very floral, and a bit more bitter than my preference, but it’s good at being what it is. Kind of in the same family of flavour as the pomegranate and blueberry teas from Tim Horton’s. This has more depth and variety to it, but it reminds me of them. I’ll finish the cup, I’m sure, but I’ll try another one next time rather than finishing off the tiny container.

My favourite of my recent DavidsTea raid last month. It’s a very fruity white, nearly herbal. It’s a very calming, smooth blend. It is quite expensive, however; more expensive per gram, and more dense than most teas by volume; it cost me about twice as much compared to the same amount of similar teas. Even then, I’d buy it again.
A second meeting with the countess. I don’t know what it is; I used hotter water and a longer steep, and bingo, I like it. Maybe I just have an unrefined palete, and have to have my tea steeped to within an inch of it’s life. Or maybe I’m just in a better mood. No matter, the orange is nice and tart today, the green smooth underneath, the smell heavenly, and the orange peel not quite as bitter. There’s those extra points I was thinking this would get. Still not quite up to my current favourite, Kyoto Cosmo, but very, very good.
Well, I tried out my new tea and my new tumbler. It’s a pleasant green with a strong orange flavour. I found my first brew to be a little on the sour side; I like my citrus teas a little sweeter. It’s still very good for a green, though, and I wonder if it was this spoonful and a half or the tea. I can see me moving this up. Good, but not my favourite.
Finally tried this yesterday. I’d give it a lower number, but really, it’s not the tea’s fault. It seems that someone who likes coconut would probably like this tea. I don’t. My least favourite of the three pack, but it’s all because of personal taste. If you like coconut, then certainly don’t listen to the fact I don’t like it.
