drank Sweet Almond Green by DAVIDsTEA
74 tasting notes

I didn’t have high hopes for this one. To me it smelled like medicine right off the bat.

On first sip, I’m definitely getting that “medicine” taste too. I’m finding the green tea base very grassy and the marigold quite astringent. Maybe the nuts are supposed to offset this, but it’s not doing much for me since I’m not a big fan of nuts in tea.

UGH. Okay, a few more sips and I’ve managed to pinpoint exactly which medicine this one reminds me of. It’s stirring up a very unpleasant memory of less healthy times. This likely won’t be an issue for other people, but I’m finding it incredibly hard to ignore.

Yeah, not for me. I think I’ll stick to straight green teas or those with a bit of jasmine. That seems to be my niche these days.

Tea enthusiast still figuring out this Steepster thing. My collection is ever-growing.

I almost always like: Vanilla, chai, caramel, berries, lemon, hibiscus, jasmine, cinnamon, ginger, earl grey, peach, lavender.

I rarely like: Mint, chamomile, rice (not a genmaicha fan), licorice, nuts, milk, artificial sweeteners.

When it comes to straight teas, I’ve liked basically everything – black, green, white, rooibos, mate, guayusa, oolong, pu-erh and yellow teas are what I have explored so far.
