Very minty. The spice flavours really come through but do not complement the mint flavour

drank Amaretto by DAVIDsTEA
817 tasting notes

I used 2 David’s Tea Scoops for my ~470 ml thermos.

Sweet and floral with smooth almond flavour coming through. The fruits give the tea a fuller flavour but it has an overall slightly dilute taste. Unpleasant artificial-type aftertaste that lingers.

For the second infusion the artificial aftertaste becomes muted and the tea develops a cherry flavour.

Very bitter flavour when cold-brewed. Highly unpleasant. Artificial after-taste- reminds me of the flavouring of the pastes used for teeth cleaning.

Preparation
Boiling

I used 1 and 1/2 spoons of dry leaf for my thermos.

Aroma is sweet. Light roasted notes; almost bitter. Jasmine-like flavour hints on each sip. Smooth mouth-feel. Sweetness in taste on the finish. Very strong vegetal aftertaste.

Very smooth. Buttery quality. Bitter aftertaste. The fig gives it a sweet aroma. I would liken the flavour to an artificial grape taste. Not all the flavours in this blend come out.

After finishing my mug and allowing the aftertaste to mingle with my salivary enzymes, I find the taste to be overpowering and not at all pleasant.

I used two spoonfuls of dry leaf for my 450 ml thermos. The vegetal taste of this green tea is very prominent. Toasted and nutty throughout. Floral notes on the aftertaste. A very delightful flavour overall- a lot of what I’m looking for in a green tea.

For the second infusion, I extended the brewing time to 2 minutes and 30 seconds. There is a nutty taste that is able to come out more. The toasted flavour is still present. There is a very noticeable floral aftertaste. When chilled, this infusion has a strong, bitter, leathery taste.

For the third infusion, brewing time stands at 3 minutes and 30 seconds. The flavour is mainly metalic with some of the toasted taste coming through. There are very slight hints of floral taste. Vegetal and floral aftertaste with hints of nutty.

This tea would likely not do well past its third infusion.

Jasmine flavour is at the front with a mingling of tropical tastes in the background. Strong jasmine after taste. I am not very fond of the mixing of these flavours. I feel that the tropical tastes take away from the delicacy of the jasmine flavour.

The flavours in the tea blend really well together to enhance the peach. Everything goes very nicely with the white tea and has a very smooth, almost creamy, finish.
