18 Tasting Notes
I may have either over steeped or used water that was too hot, but this was awful. That surprised me because I’ve never had a bad DAVIDsTEA, so I’m assuming it was my error. I received this in the 2017 tea advent calendar so I’m hoping I have another chance to try this again.
I am pleasantly surprised by this tea! It isn’t typically one I would’ve purchased on my own, but rather it came in the #24daysoftea Advent Calendar for 2017.
The smell is amazing, both dry and after steeping. I’ve come to realize I really prefer black teas over anything else and I really enjoy sweet, rich flavors. The chocolate and coconut aren’t overpowering, but very smooth and the aftertaste is delicious.
This is definitely going on my “to-purchase” list for my next DAVIDsTEA order!
Flavors: Chocolate, Coconut, Nutty
I am a huge fan of mint teas and when I found this in our work stash I was quick to try it. Like others mentioned, the smell upon opening the package is fantastic. So minty!
I always over-steep my tea bags, usually leaving them in the cup until the tea is gone and I think that only made this better. I didn’t get much of a black tea taste (although I am happy for the extra caffeine kick), but the mint wasn’t overpowering either.
I’ll be keeping my eye out for some of this in stores.
I have been drinking bagged peppermint tea daily for the last couple weeks and decided to purchase some loose leaf peppermint since it has become my new go-to. I am super glad that I did!
The peppermint almost knocked me over when I opened the bag. It was so strong and so amazing! Cleared the sinuses right up! It stayed pretty strong-smelling during steeping and I was a little worried that it would taste as strong as it smelled. I think I could actually stand to use another tsp or so as the finished product wasn’t as strong as I would have liked.
It is delicious though! I love drinking it after a big meal or before bed. It is very minty and refreshing. It also helps settle and sooth my stomach if I’m feeling a bit bloated or bubbly. ;)
Would recommend and will continue drinking until I’ve made myself sick of it! (I also bought a small sample of the Vanilla Rooibos to mix and will be trying that next!)
