drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA
8 tasting notes

My first review here! (and one of my first times buying from David’s Tea)

When I saw this in the store, I loved the scent. It reminded me of a mix between apple cider and vanilla, but mostly Apple cider. I was a bit miffed as to why coriander was in this tea, and a bit worried as well – I enjoy coriander in savory types of things, but it didn’t seem to fit with the other ingredients in the tea. But you can’t taste the coriander anyhow.

The strongest flavor, is overwhelming apple, and a hint of vanilla – it tastes quite like how it smells. It’s extremely creamy, especially for something that has no dairy products in it! I had it right after our thanksgiving feast, and though its not exactly a dessert tea, I thought it was pleasant way to finish off a fantastic meal. But if you leave the tea for a while, it takes on a bitter/sour (?) aftertaste. I’m not quite sure why it took on that taste because it was fine in the beginning. It’s not unbearable, but it’s not at all something you would want to drink too often.
All in all, it’s an ok tea definitely something for the fall season. Not something that needs to be in my cupboard at all times, but it’s good to have every once and a while

Flavors: Apple, Vanilla

I’m rather new to this world of tea – I was only introduced to it in the summer of 2014, though I’ve always enjoyed the straight teas from Asia, mostly oolongs and green teas, that my family sends every now and again. I’m still a student so I haven’t been able to branch out to a ton of different places, but as soon as I can order things online I foresee my tea cabinet filling up quickly.

My favorite note is coconut, but I’m struggling to find a tea that lets coconut shine (so if anyone has a recommendation please tell me!). Other notes I like are vanilla, maple, peaches, apple, mint, nuts, caramel, chocolate, and a lot of other ones. Notes I’m not to particularly fond of are banana, a couple florals (mostly rose and lavender), and hibiscus (in most teas at least). I’m sure as I try more teas I’ll discover more things I like and don’t like, but this is my initial list.
