1341 Tasting Notes

I’ve been struggling with this tea because I really want to like it, but it’s not behaving. I don’t love it with milk, but I also don’t love it without. The last time I had it, I decided to sweeten it with horchata powder, which was tasty and made it taste pretty authentic. I’ve also enjoyed it with almond milk. I just find myself wanting more from this tea. It tastes like rooibos and a little like cinnamon, but I wish it were more decadent.

drank Moroccan Mint by Numi Organic Tea

Single bag from a tea box. This is such a clear, fresh peppermint. That’s the only ingredient in this bag, and it’s really refreshing and nice cold. I would totally drink this one again.

I like this black tea. It’s pretty deep and malty. The pumpkin flavoring is lighter than I’d prefer. I wouldn’t really be able to tell that it’s supposed to be pumpkin flavor if I didn’t know already. It’s interesting to have pumpkin in a non pumpkin spice context. I guess this tea is pretty squashy now that I’m thinking about it. My second cup of this I enjoyed even more than my first. The flavors are subtle, but super enjoyable and high quality. I wish I had more of this one. I turned out to really like it.

Squashy. There’s an adjective to make you smile!

Grabbed this bag from a tea box. This is a little savory. There’s a bit of a dirt flavor, but not in a terrible way. I know this herb is mostly used for health reasons, so I was expecting it to be a lot grosser. It’s pretty generically herbal.

…so I was expecting it to be a lot grosser.

Hahahahaha! Thank you. I enjoyed that. :)

Ha yeah I’ve just noticed a trend among health teas – not all, but many :P

That made me laugh too! I had a similar thought about a tea recently.

drank Feverfew Lemongrass by Buddha Teas

This flavor is really mild and nice. I taste the lemongrass and I don’t know anything about feverfew, so I can’t say if I taste that or not. The lemongrass is fresh and a bit fruity. I’m a lemongrass fan, so I would totally drink this again. Nice tea box find!

Single bag from a tea box. I taste tart fruit combined with a slightly harsh green tea. It’s decent cold, but it doesn’t have the depth of high quality green teas. The fruit isn’t super distinct or delicious either, just sort of sour. This isn’t a special blend, but it’s okay.

I swear I’ve had this tea before, but who knows where my review for it went. I’m not typically a jasmine fan, but this one is so fresh and clear. It’s quite floral, but somehow it’s just right. I really enjoy this one cold and sweetened.

Single bag from a tea box. I taste a pretty clear mango flavor, but I’m less in love with the base teas this uses. The mate and green tea are honestly fine, but a little distracting from the delicious flavoring. I’d love to see this flavoring with a really high quality green tea. I suppose I may taste a little pineapple too, but the mango is the star.

I finished a tin of this around eight years ago and have kept the adorable tin on my shelf ever since (currently filled with lavender). I was visiting family recently and was thrilled to see this same tin on their shelves, and it still had a few bags left in it! They use a tasty rooibos as a base, and the spices are mild, but pleasant. There’s a tiny bit of fruitiness from the pumpkin. It may be nostalgia, but I’ll always love this one!

drank Chocolate Chip Cookie by DAVIDsTEA
1341 tasting notes

The first thing I taste is a bit of pepper, which doesn’t seem to fit. I guess there’s some chocolate flavor, but it tastes sort of like low quality Easter chocolate. It all combines to taste sort of…meh? Pepper, low quality chocolate, and possibly a little of something else, but this really isn’t great. It tastes better after it cools to room temperature. I get a little bit of salt, like in a raw cookie dough. It’s also pleasantly desserty. It’s still not too special, but I sort of like it.

I really liked this one that you included in the Advent. (:

I’m so glad! If I had any more, I would definitely send it your way! For some reason, I often find myself not loving DavidsTEA black teas.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
