drank Honeycrisp Apple by DAVIDsTEA
1030 tasting notes

From my bedroom, I hear the mug against the glass table: Yeah?

“Yeah. What is that. Does it have sugar in it?”

It has blackberry leaf in it. “It doesn’t have sugar in it?” Nope.

“It’s pretty good. Is it some kind of green tea?” Yeeup. It’s got green tea in it. You got it!

burrp burrrrp burp “Rosehips? Red clover? No? Rosehips? No? Rose petals? Lavender?”

Nope.

“It tastes like raisins or something. It smells like mulberries or something.”

I had stolen a few sips before setting it next to her and wandering off. Oh yeah that makes sense to me. But nope. But you like it.

“I like it. I can’t get over that sweetness. It’s like it has sweetener in it.” The blackberry leaves are a natural sweetener.

“Very nice. I give it a, 9, 9.5. Oh no, I might even give it a 10. Lemongrass?” You’re probably getting some of that tart type flavor you think is rosehips and lemongrass from hibiscus and apples.

“Is that tea something new? Did you get it in the mail— Is it from the bag?” Yup, from Cameron B. “Yeah, that’s really good. It tastes a little more like a red delicious than a honeycrisp because it’s sweet.”

In contrast, I think it tastes mostly of sweetness. Dried golden mulberries. Not like apple at all. And it smells like crayon wax in a very no bueno way.

Ha ha, the red clover again! She cracks me up. I’ll have to see if I smell Crayon wax too next time…

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
