drank Hot Tropic by DAVIDsTEA
740 tasting notes

I cold brewed this one for 17 hours (whoops, I meant to do 12). It turned out just fine though. It really tastes just like Tropicalia plus cinnamon and star anise. Neither are in-your-face, but are noticeable, yet subtle at the same time. It’s quite enjoyable as a cold brew.

I also steeped up a normal mug too, and I may ever so slightly prefer the hot. Partly because I generally prefer hot tea, but also because the cinnamon is more apparent than the star anise, whereas they were equal in the cold brew. When cinnamon is done well in a tea, I do enjoy it. The hot version is more like a cinnamon piña colada.

Glad you liked it as well :)

Gotta remember to avoid this. Thanks for the Tropicalia comparison or I might not have known.

Nxtdoor, I hated Tropicalia but liked this so it may be worth a sample anyways.

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug!

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
