238 Tasting Notes


Citrus addict in me had to try this tea.
It smells like lemon zest with subtle dark tones.
Steeped and hot it smells like a lemon infused unsweetened Orange Pekoe.No real intense earth tones like you would normally expect in a pu’erh.
It is dark looking liquid in a typical pu’erh way,however this one is more red then brown.
It looks in fact like a long steeped orange pekoe.
I usually am overpowered by the earthy taste of Pu’erh so I’m hoping this one has a more delicate touch.
Taste wise it’s really lovely light and refreshing.
It has a lovely touch of zesty citrus and surprisingly no familiar Pu’erh taste.

I stand by my assessment of this being a properly lemony unsweetened Orange Pekoe.

Need the pekoe without the work of zesting or squeezing lemons? Like pekoe that is sweet without being sweetened?want a perfect properly tasting iced tea?

well this is it.

Next time:Iced.

this is the new designer Orange Pekoe.

However though I love Licorice I’m not sure about it’s little bite in this tea.


My first bag of this smelled super fishy and tasted the same way. And it was yucky brown coloured. Talked to someone at the store and they gave me a second bag and it was better but I don’t get citrus at all from it and it is still slightly brown in colour. I think maybe Bayshore got a bad batch of this one. Still fishy smelling. UGH

So knowing now what I didn’t know before I dumped a shallow davids perfect tea spoon into the strainer and steeped it for the lowest recommended time.

Really want to love this tea since it smells so lovely.

Earl Grey suddenly becomes sexy in DT’s hands.

When brewed it smells more regular but has a lovely creamy disposition with that pinch of vanilla and is a richly honey colored drink.

This tea smells of wonderfully superior ingredients while keeping the classic Grey profile.

Taste is totally creamy with a passionate (but delicate) kiss of vanilla and bergamot.

This is definitely a great earl grey experience.It’s lovely and delicate nothing is overpowering or false tasting.It is creamy and sexy.If you are looking for a less boring earl grey with pronounced sex appeal..this is it.

So I decided to try more Oolongs from DT.

Since they had so many cake themed teas this month I ordered this as well.

Can’t really decide on the smell…it doesn’t smell like carrot cake but smells subtly fruity a bit toasty and very earthy.

Is a lovely golden color …blonde even.

Doesn’t taste like carrot cake to me..but isn’t unpleasant either.
It has a bit of tartness and smokiness.
You can taste the apple which I like.

It’s a decent tea but I doubt I would buy it again.I’m going to give it to my bff and fellow tea-hound lindairvine.


I have wanted to try this one because I love oolongs.. but all the terrible reviews makes me think twice about getting 50g worth online =|

I LOVE citrus in anything and everything so I was super excited about DT doing a whole line just for citrus addicts like me!

I never felt like they had enough citrus variety or it just wasn’t strong enough or too strong in a wellness tea kind of way.

This smells just lovely the oil of Tangerine really doing it’s part to come through and tickle me with just a low toasty note that really accents the citrus in an interesting way.

Taste is decent and citrusy but doesn’t blow me away.

The toasty notes are alright but maybe they take away from the citrus experience I wanted.

This will be good green tea cupboard stock until it runs out.
Don’t think I’ll buy again though unless I warm up to it in the future.

drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA

So just got my DavidsTea parcel today and my first try will be this interesting tea.

It smells exactly like chocolate ice cream.

It brews thick and foggy a light caramel color with sediment on the top and bottom.

I actually really like this!
it’s like an unsweetened watery hot chocolate or chocolate ice cream melted which is actually quite pleasant and not so hard on the teeth or caloric intake.

It’s not as overwhelming as I thought it would be for a gimmicky tea.
