37 Tasting Notes
Cold steeping it really did help. Generally, I find that cold-steeping makes all the flavours blend together more seamlessly, and more mild. I cold-steeped this overnight in the fridge.
I would never buy this tea again, but cold steeping it made it possible for me to complete my sipdown.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Medicinal
This is one of the very few flavoured teas from DavidsTea that I like. The chocolate, marshmallow and cinnamon graham cracker flavours are all there. It does (as always) smell better than it tastes.
However, if you look at the tea, it’s at least 60% chocolate chips and marshmallow bits. This is definitely a dessert and not a tea. I’m looking for some “straight” chai to cut it and bring out the spice.
I will get another 50g, but definitely need to mix this because it’s too sweet for my palate.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Dark Chocolate, Marshmallow
I bought this tea because it said “maple sugar”. Let me be clear – I cannot taste the maple or the sugar. Instead, it’s a very “apple pie” tasting tea, with strong notes of apple and cinnamon, and potentially licorice.
I think that I had oversteeped it in the past (approximately 5 minutes). Cutting down the steep time to 3 minutes helped, as did putting in less tea with more water. I will try cold-steeping it next, as that seems to work well for me with teas I don’t like drinking hot.
