drank Exotica by DAVIDsTEA
335 tasting notes

A very interesting tea, or should I say funny? When brewing it had a really nice exotic aroma – coconut milk and other tropical fruits – which reminded me of the desserts in a Thai restaurant that I frequently visit. When brewed, it really tasted like Thai coconut rice! Apart from the complex notes of spices and a faint hint of sweetness from coconut, it seemed that I could really taste savoury rice in the tea. I’d say it’s very special and unique tea, but I am not sure when I would like to drink it. It’s too light as a breakfast tea, too filling (I am talking about the mental image of coconut rice it conjures up) as an afternoon tea, too savoury as a dessert tea, and too intriguing as a bedtime tea!! Perhaps it will be perfect when you are craving for Thai food but your favourite Thai restaurant is closed? :P

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

I am now practising mindfulness as a way of living. I decide to use tea tasting as a means to meditate in my daily life. My tasting notes here will therefore be my meditation notes :)

I’ve got no time to update my Pinterest and blog since I became a mom. Nevertheless, if you feel curious, you are most welcomed to visit these abandoned pages:
