68 Tasting Notes
I hate black licorice, thankfully there are enough “other” flavors that make me not hate this tea. No, I don’t love it… But it’s interesting. Also it’s making me feel a little better, as I am sick and cranky and no other tea was calling my name. Do you get like that? A tea for your moods…. Like watermelon mint is too happy of a tea or butter rum is too intellectual for watching tv. Ok, I think it might just be me. Anyway, this tea makes me feel less cranky.
This tea is really good… Very sweet. It tastes like someone added a lot of honey to my tea. Normally I don’t add honey to my tea but here it works. It’s too bad this is a mate because it would be great as an herbal. I was sick last week and tea seems like it would be really soothing when you have a cold. Might be one of those teas that have a permanent spot in my home.
OH MY GOODNESS!!! I had a cup of Pumpkin Chai with a scoop of Pumpkin Pie ice cream on top. It was ridiculous!
The ice cream I bought was from President’s Choice.. http://pc.ca/en_CA/products/productlisting/pc_ice_cream_pumpkin_pieprod1330035.html So good. Creamy and delicious. Full of pumpkin flavor.
I need caffeine in the morning, trust me… 2 kids, a dog, 2 guinea pigs.. = lots of caffeine.. so far tea, as much as I love it (and I do love it), it has not replaced my morning coffee. Today I tried COCOBERRY for a change. I like it, it sort of tastes like coffee with cherries. I am really liking the cherries in this one. In the past whenever I have had a tea with cherries they have reminded me of cough medicine, but not this one. This one is done right, maybe because it has other berries in it, like strawberry. Anyway, I don’t know if it will replace my morning coffee (lets wait for the caffeine to kick in), but its good. I am happy I bought it.
I actually gasped when I tried this…. it was a audible, “aaaaaaaaaaaagh”. In the best way possible. It is creamy and nutty and yummy. I love that its a herbal and I can enjoy it late at night. I only bought 20grams of this but I know that I will be getting more. Bravo David’s Tea, Bravo!!
oh and I totally over steeped it. I forgot and probably left it for 10 minutes or so.
Edited to add: second steep just as good!
This is gooooood!! Its ridiculously hot here, so maybe I should have had it iced, but its good hot. I can taste the apple and the cinnamon. It is very yummy. I am very impressed with the flavors. It tastes just like apple pie, minus the calories. I bought the other Fall teas as well. Tonight I will be having Pistachio Cream. It smells amazing and I love that its a herbal, so I can have it at night. A happy day!!
