7 Tasting Notes


Cold Brew – This is so lovely! I tried this hot as well but I think the grapefruit really lends itself perfectly to an iced tea. Bright, clean, subtle citrus and incredibly refreshing. I am new to cold brew this spring/summer and can’t wait to branch out with this area of teadom.

Meh. Fine with milk and sugar, but what isn’t, really? I am trying to drink more of my teas unadulterated and this one is uninspired. I taste mainly hibiscus.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Sour, Tangy

Lovely pear fragrance and subtle pear flavor but not nearly enough ginger for my liking – I love my ginger!

Flavors: Floral, Pear


I wonder what would happen if you steeped a piece of crystallized ginger with the tea?

I agree with other reviewers that this tea has a dumb name. I am just getting started with pu-erh teas and am not sure I like them, so I think this was a nice way to ease in combined with oolong and ginger, two of my favorites, although I wish the ginger was more forward. DavidsTea tends to add flavoring to everything, and this is no exception but I don’t know what flavor it is! It was earthy and citrusy and took milk and sugar nicely. Low caffeine level made it appropriate for bedtime and I like the digestive properties.

Flavors: Citrus, Wet Earth

185 °F / 85 °C 5 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I got some pu-erh tea in San Francisco’s Chinatown while there for a conference in 2004-ish. I shortened the name to just “poo.” ;)

This tea by a local Colorado company is pure nostalgia and deliciousness. It’s made with smoky Lapsang Souchong and sweetened with creamy white chocolate. Decadent with milk and sugar, though not necessary.

Flavors: Cloves, Peppercorn, Smoke, Smooth, White Chocolate

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but 2016 has brought a whole new level of devotion…current obsessions are oolong & lapsang souchong.

Favorite flavors/notes are vanilla, ginger, citrus, cherry, apricot, coconut, chocolate and smoke.

I read as voraciously as I drink tea, and talk about my two wonderful rescue dogs all over the Internet.
