704 Tasting Notes
Very realistic raspberry flavour. Just the right amount of tartness. Raspberry is balanced quite nicely with rooibos flavour. The flavours might just be a little bit dilute but there isn’t anything overly artificial-tasting in this blend.
Flavors: Raspberry, Rooibos
A pretty good melon flavouring. I really enjoy the pairing of white tea with melon flavour. The company that does this combination best, in my experience, is Butiki Teas (very unfortunately no longer in business). I’m having trouble tasting the white tea in this blend, which is the norm for DAVIDsTEA.
My initial thoughts on the chocolate flavour of this tea is that it tastes a bit like a chocolate liqueur. It is a bit mild on the sip with a slight dark chocolately bloom on the aftertaste The chocolate has a bit of the soapy taste that I get a lot with DAVIDsTEA chocolate teas. I can’t seem to properly taste the black tea in this blend which is also common with the flavoured DAVIDsTEA teas that I have tried. I just looked at the ingredients and there is supposed to be peppercorn in here which I absolutely cannot taste (unlike in Chocolate Chili Chai, also by DAVIDsTEA).
Flavors: Chocolate, Sweet
Slight smokiness with a bitter edge which seems to be coming from the green tea. The green tea in here seems to be a sencha and, as with all DAVIDsTEA blends, it seems to be of low quality. I can hardly taste the white tea in this one at all, which also seems to be characteristic of any DAVIDsTEA white tea blends. Artificial peach taste present. Heavy jasmine floral flavour which, in theory, would pair well with the peach and white tea tastes but in this brew they are not blended very well.
Flavors: Jasmine, Peach, Smoke
