7 Tasting Notes
I haven’t tasted real cotton candy or anything flavored like it in years and thought I had grown out of a taste for it when I grew up and knew what it was (ah to be a clueless kid again!). This tea came in a sampler pack and when I brewed it up (skeptically) I slipped into being a kid at a county fair as soon as I took my first sip. It was so wonderful that it made me sit down and just drink it down, remembering fun times with my cousins being turned loose with a few bucks for junky food and rattling rides, neither of which I’d go anywhere near now! Thanks for the fun!
Flavors: Cotton Candy
One of my new fall/winter favorites. I just love the smell! It makes me smile just to smell the empty jar! I’ll definitely be looking for this one early next year, since I already finished mine & winter’s not nearly over. It reminds me of pumpkin or pecan pie spices, but not like chai. It’s just a warm, cozy smell that I find very comforting. Since I don’t actually want anymore snow, I have been NOT asking for more “Let it Snow” and instead cracking a lot of jokes about the subtitle under the name: “Noggy by Nature” hilarious & well played, David’s Tea marketers!
I really enjoy the peppermisnt and hint of chocolate. When asked to describe what it tastes like I describe it as that refreshing minty taste you feel on your lips when you use Burt’s Bees Peppermint lip balm, which I happen to like, especially after a big meal (like around the holidays). I know it isn’t for everyone though, so if you aren’t a peppermint fan, steer clear!
Flavors: Peppermint, White Chocolate
This tea is just so good! A friend recommended it and I am now 100% addicted! I didn’t realize it was seasonal or I would have bought more of the loose tea when I visited the store. Thankfully, the tea sachets are also delicious and a few were still available when my friend visited and thoughtfully bought them out for me! Whew! I’m now on a quest for something that I look forward to as much as this one! It’ll be tough, though. S’mores Chai satisfies all of my cravings at the same time and doesn’t get bitter as it sits, so I can make it & leave it in my stainless steel steeper & sip all day-very nice!
