drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA
3735 tasting notes

I am torn. I made this tea in my timolino this morning and a cup of blueberry jam in my steeper and I planned to drink this throughout the day. Then my roommate asked if I wanted to go buy ingriedients for food we are making for a dinner party tomorrow and so this got left behind and somehow on our adventures we wound up at David’s tea. I bought teas from the Winter Collection and some holiday teas and of course as soon as I got home started brewing some of my new teas for my roommate and I to try. Then our power went out so we went wandering around the city in search of something to pass the time and some food to eat. Once again my timolino got left behind. When I came back and found my timolino filled with still warm lime gelato I was so tempted to drink it but I am not sure how wise having caffeine at 10:30 at night would be. So I am sitting with a full 16 oz timolino of lime gelato unsure as to whether I should drink it and enjoy the delicious flavor and deal with the caffeine effect or not.


Put the tea in the fridge for iced tea tomorrow…….

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around but don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
