1174 Tasting Notes

I cold brewed this for about 8 hours overnight.
This is delicious! This is even better than I was imagining it to be. It is of course lemon, but it is soft and smooth, not sour like lemons usually are. I am definitely getting a bit of nutty, buttery pastry. YUM!
I will also have to try this a hot brew!

I had this chilled in the morning, and it was delicious with some of Butiki’s crystal brown sugar added. Really refreshing on a hot summer day!!

drank Watermelon Mint by DAVIDsTEA

Iced, this is very refreshing. The mint leaves a cooling feeling for quite awhile. I really enjoy the watermelon. I remember someone mentioning something about bubblegum, and I got a hint of that here. But I enjoyed it.

Preparation
Iced

drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA

Sipdown of this tea today. I guess lots of the coconut sunk to the bottom of the bag because the pot I made was pretty creamy coconut with a little hint of mint and lemon. I actually preferred it this way! I didn’t really get any pineapple this time, but it was fine without it.

I made some rhubarb muffins with rhubarb from my garden, so this seemed to be a good pairing for my snack. I was completely right because this was delicious together.
This tea isn’t sweet at all, it is a little creamy, and maybe a little bit malty? I don’t know, I am not even sure how to describe it.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Mango Fruit Punch by DAVIDsTEA
1174 tasting notes

Enjoyed this again this summer as an iced tea. It is refreshing and very fruity! I made it a little stronger than recommended because the fruit pieces are so big. So, it was very hard to measure!
I am glad that mango is the main note because I love mangos!

drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA

I am still not getting “cookie dough” in this tea. I find this tea more nutty than what I expect from cookie dough.
I still enjoy this tea, it is just not what I was hoping it would taste like.

Mmm, this was creamy, and warming to the bone. It was a tad sweet and vegetal. In other words, delicious!

drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA
1174 tasting notes

I am a sucker for any chocolate tea. This one was very sweet with the added sugar in it. But I didn’t really mind because I needed a treat. The pecans with the coconut and chocolate make an interesting combination. I might even restock this one, I will have to see.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Just Peachy by DAVIDsTEA

I had this quite awhile ago, so now I kinda forget how it tasted, but it was fairly delicious if I remember correctly. The peach was maybe a tiny bit artificial, but it was a good iced tea.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
