537 Tasting Notes
My boyfriend was given this tea by his buddy at work. I was excited to try it as I LOVE the apple and cinnamon combo. This tea smells sweet like apples and cinnamon. Such a lovely scent. However, I don’t taste much apple or cinnamon as it is overpowered by the taste of hibiscus. Hibiscus is pretty much all I taste actually. This is so not my cup of tea. But it was nice to try!
I am currently sick. Boo. I also blame all my co-workers who came in sick, coughing and sneezing all week. Oh, well…I decided to go into DavidsTea after work and stock up on some cold teas. I got Cold911 as usual and received a sample of Honey drop to try in store. I really liked the sample so I got some of this tea as well to take home. I also caved and bought two mugs (they were on sale 2 for $40!). I got the Llama and Toucan mugs. I am in love with them! Well, back to the tea…this is one refreshing cup of tea. I definitely taste the orange with a hint of sweetness, mint and ginger. I think I would like this one even if I wasn’t sick! I hope this one sticks around for awhile!
I was intrigued by the sounds of this as a latte, so naturally, I had to place an order online to get some of it to try. And also buy all the cute fox items that came out. If there was a fox on it, it was mine (Foxes are my second favorite animal-Dogs are my ultimate 1st). I must say that I was actually pretty disappointed in this one made as a latte. It tasted “chalky” to me and I like the Chai spices to kick-me-in-the-face with how strong they are and this one was so mild that I could barely taste it! On the plus side, I made some for my sister and am happy to report that it will not go to waste as she loves this one! It’s so funny how we all have different tastes!
Received this sample of Cardamom Macchiato along with my newest DT order (had to get that free Llama tote bag!)…and of course get some more (on sale) Sunset Matcha! I am now the proud owner of 900g of it! I had to stock up since it looks like its retiring and I want to enjoy this blend for awhile (especially when your person loves it too as a matcha lemonade). Anyhoo, back to the sample. I was super excited to try this one ever since seeing it on a leaked photo of upcoming tea names list on Davidstea fan group on Facebook. The dry leaf smells like licorice to me (which is weird because there’s no licorice in this blend). However, while brewing, it started to smell like coffee (one of the yummiest smells in the world in my opinion). I made it as a hot latte. One taste and it’s instant love! I really like this one. Kinda tastes like coffee crisp at first, then I notice the cardamom/coffee flavor coming through. My wallet isn’t going to be happy with me this Fall/Winter season as I will have to stock up on this one!
