Well, I’ve officially tried every single tea on the tea wall now apart from the one I’m allergic to. The completionist part of me wants to try that one too, but I think realistically I’ll have to leave it like this. Now I just have to maintain this by continuing to try every single tea we release as we release them!
This definitely isn’t an arbitrary “last tea” though; it’s a straight sencha and our lowest grade, at that. I don’t like Sencha and I certainly saved the worst one we carry for last because I just kept putting off making it. It was so slow today at work though, what with the holiday, that I bit that bullet.
This wasn’t TERRIBLE. I mean, it was drinkable and that’s a huge plus. Though I’m sure all the honey I added in definitely went a long way in making that statement possible. It was very marine/seaweedy and quite salty, even with the honey. As it cooled it picked up a more bitter/tannic sort of edge. Not my favourite.
But I did guys! I conquered the tea wall!
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
