Recent Tasting Notes
This is my first tea review. The first day of the 24 days of (David’s Tea) seemed a good place to start.
I’m not great with black teas, they’re usually not my thing, but this is different. The dry smell is incredible, it’s definitely buttery. The taste is very smooth, I think thanks to the coconut, it was definitely less bitter than I usually find black tea. The second steep lost all bitterness completely.
Next time I drink this tea I will add almond milk and a touch of sugar to the first steep and enjoy the second steep straight.
I can’t decide what I love most about this – the smell or the taste. It smells so sweet and creamy, I love the coconut. My first thought was that it smells a little like popcorn lol
I first tried it straight up with nothing added and the flavour was amazing!! Doesn’t have too much caffeine either but enough to give you a little nudge in the mornings. I recently bought a whole tin and got it in a latte at David’s tea. It tastes just as good – if not better! – with milk, some agave, and a dusting of cinnamon on top.
This is now one of my favourite teas!
Ok I think it is safe to start my daily 24 Days of Tea tasting notes. If you haven’t opened yours yet today, well you need to get on that.
I had this tea yesterday morning as well, but I think I brewed it up more nicely today. Made it as a latte both times. It is quite delicious, and a great way to start off the holiday season. I ALWAYS forget this one is low caffeine though, who knew? It has a rich, sweet, buttery flavour that will please any pallet. I think my mom liked it too (I gave her the advent calendar for her birthday so that she could try a bunch), her comment was yes this is quite a nice black tea. It reminds me a little bit of Brazillonaire in its richness.
I might have more of it this evening. I’m in the middle of paper writing for the end of the semester right now, and lets be honest tea is the only thing that keeps me going. I had a bunch of pinapple oolong today as well.
More daily reviews to come!
Finally got to try this one today. My lovely friend who works at Davids made me it iced with Aguave. She said the key is to brew it for only a minute, and I think she is right. It reminded me a lot of iced green teas that you buy in the bottle, but it was still really good. I would love to try it with some carbonation to see how it tastes.
So many noms! What an improvement from the bitter Vanilla Oolong; I’m so glad David’s Tea is replacing it with this creamy beauty. It’s like if Quangzhou Milk Oolong decided to frolic in a flower field that had been dosed in vanilla extract. Imagine the oolong balls running along,so carefree, so happy, slowly being covered with vanilla- creamy, milky, floral, and sweet vanilla. I’m glad I left half a pot of this sitting out over night and am gross enough to drink it. It tastes like the soft vanilla in ice cream, and I personally like it cooled or iced.
The vanilla could be overpowering first steep but that’s why oolong is jolly for a second (third, or fourth) steep. You can wash your liberated oolong after that field frolic and feel good about making it clean again(temporarily).
