When I first bought this it was overwhelmingly floral. I made very small cups!
I miss the RC from Tea Emporium. One of the few they did exceptionally well.

Now that I’ve had it a few years, the floral is quite nice. Faded isn’t always bad!
Today I infused it three times in a small tea cup and combined the three into a large mug. Very nice. Smooth and just overall pleasant. I always get lost in the cup and forget to take more specific notes other than to say this is a basic Chinese black base with some mild background cocoa notes and maybe sugarcane. The rose is very perfume like.
Fresh, this would have gotten a lower rating. About 65-70. Aged? much better. One of those that I procrastinate due to my memory of how it once was, and then I remember, it’s loads better now! and never regret my cuppa. I could have sworn this was in my cupboard here on steepster…. but nope, I just added it to the database today.

I really wasn’t expecting much from this tea with the lack of reviews both here and on two leaves and a bud’s website but here i am leaving a good review. Maybe my taste buds are just fried today but when really hot it doesn’t seem to have a flavor but once it cools off a bit it is really nice.

Not the best Bai Mu Dan I have tasted. It is 85% brown leaves 15% green, with a few silver needles.
The taste is soft and creamy but not a lot of depth for “Supreme”.
Still an enjoyable white tea, but far from top grade.

Flavors: Cream, Floral

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 45 sec 3 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I got an orange candy vibe from this one. The licorice was nicely balanced with this one I thought. You get the sweetness but it’s not cloying/numbing. I’d get more!

I love moroccan mint! This one is good but comparable to cheaper ones I buy so probably won’t get more.

This is my first experience with Da Hong Pao and I thought the taste profile of this tea was good but didn’t amaze me. I enjoyed 3 steeps out of this tea.

drank Main Squeeze by DAVIDsTEA

Smells and tastes just like Sunny D lol. It’s really good! I’m pretty sensitive to caffeine but this didn’t bother me at all. I drank it in the afternoon before work and felt alert but not jittery. No headache or crash later in the evening either. I slept good. Mate is a magical!

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

Delicious! I’ve liked all the rooibos teas I’ve tried so far. Coconutty, spicy goodness.

Thank you so much Nicole!

I need to brew this again because I did not like it as much as I thought I would. This tea was thick, buttery and savory throughout with a grassy edge that I did not like. The first steep was like buttered corn followed by a rise of florals from the honeysuckle, but the honeysuckle did not have so much honey. Second steep tasted like popcorn butter. I got three more cups that were much the same fluxes of butter and florals. Maybe I’ll be better next time.

drank Honey Lullaby by DAVIDsTEA
26 tasting notes

Got this as a 50g frequent steeper award. It comes in a HUGE bag. I do like it, it’s very honey heavy. Reading the ingredients now I did notice the stevia extract while drinking it but figured it was the artificial honey flavouring I was tasting. The bag will last a long time and I don’t plan on buying more when it runs out. Probably the prettiest loose tea I’ve ever seen though!

The loose tea smells very fruity? I thought I got the wrong tea at first but it tastes like earl grey. Nice with or without milk! Not sure I’d get more since it’s so expensive and tastes pretty standard to me.

This one is sooo good! Chocolatey, coconutty, creamy. I like black teas with and without milk, but I can’t imagine this one without. I tried it with some “old fashioned” chocolate milk that was 3.25% MF (basically melted milkshake boiiiiii) and fuuuuuuck meee dude. Excellent afternoon treat. I got a 100g tin at the beginning of the month and it’s almost gone.

Got a free bag with an order. I’m glad I tried it but won’t get more. I get mostly orange and coffee from it.

Received my portion of the Dammann Freres group order on national popcorn day. Luckily I had the perfect tea to celebrate with! http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/21/pop-corn-from-dammann-freres/

This smells like a strawberry milkshake and tastes like…oolong. So that was disappointing .

Woke up with a cold and sore throat on the weekend so I decided to try this one finally. I really don’t like ginger but I didn’t mind this one. It soothed my throat quite well! Although the last two mouthfuls of each mug were extremely gingery, I still enjoyed the rest. I got three decent steeps out of 1 PS in a 16oz mug.

Very pleasant! It’s nice and cinnamony, but not sweet. The colour is beautiful as well!
