drank Sweet Almond Green by DAVIDsTEA
249 tasting notes

So upfront I will admit that this sample is about a year old. There’s something about it that doesn’t quite work. The initial scent and taste is just like an almond cookie, but then the vegetal green tea is a jarring second note. There is nothing wrong with either flavor, but they just don’t blend together at all. I feel like there’s real potential here, but more tweaking is needed. I have cut back drastically on using additional sugar or sweeteners, but I suspect that might be helpful with this tea. I’d probably give it about a 60, but I won’t rate it officially since my sample is old and may not be representative.

Flavors: Almond, Cookie, Vegetal

Wife, mom of 2 crazy young kids (and 3 cats, if they count). Used to be a professional tree hugger, now I stay at home hobbit-like and teach the kids to love the trees. Also hobbit-like, I love reading, tea, second breakfasts, cooking and food in general, and gardens. (I can’t really say I love gardening since where I live, it’s too dratted hot for too much of the year to actually do it.) I am always on the search for a good flavored decaf black tea. Suggestions are more than welcome!

I tend to like my teas strong, so I use more than most people when I brew. Don’t be put off a tea because I say I used 4 tsp to brew 12 oz or something – that’s just me.

PS – Unlike a hobbit, my toes are not furry. I just feel the need to clarify.
