drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA
165 tasting notes

It was absolutely FREEZING out today and I just could not resist the urge to stop by on my way home for a nice warm cup of tea! I was in the mood for something new and decided to give this one a try. I find rooibos tea to really be hit or miss for the most part but this one was almost in between. The taste and smell definitely reminded me of gingerbread but to me, the taste was not exactly reminiscent of gingerbread. I really like the concept behind this tea and definitely enjoyed my cup though. The taste definitely reminds me of something, not gingerbread though…maybe closer to the taste of sticky toffee pudding? Anyways, I did enjoy it and would not hesitate to drink it again. I can’t say I would rush out to buy this or even be “heartbroken” if they don’t bring it back next year. I’m definitely glad I gave it a go and suggest everyone tries it at least once before it is gone!

I am a tea fanatic and have also recently made the transition from vegetarian to vegan! I always have tea in my hand and in my overflowing cupboard!

I prefer black, green and white teas. I have recently discovered mate and oolongs. So far I’ve enjoyed them however, I have not tried very many. I am not often a fan of rooibos as I tend to find them overly woody but have found there to be some exceptions. As for herbals, I am only recently beginning to drink these on a regular basis (mostly iced) as the weather gets warmer, but these I am willing to try. I have not yet developped the taste for pu’erh.

I tend to only rate and review the teas I drink once (maybe twice if my opinion REALLY changes; especially if I were to have them prepared a different way). I currently only use Steepster for logging my reviews of David’s Tea although I do drink teas from many different companies. Every time I visit the store, I try something new in a cup to-go as I enjoy going through the tea menu and marking off teas as I try them. My goal is to try them all!

My rating system is as follows:
90-100: Wecome to my permanent collection! (worthy of a 100g tin!)

75-90: Definetly would drink again but maybe not all the time. I would buy a small amount (50g or less) to have once in a while.

50-75: I will finish the cup but not my favourite.

25-50: I will try to finish the cup but may not be able to.

0-25: Not my cup of tea…down the sink we go!
