60 Tasting Notes
I just bought this, and it smells so good. I’m going to drink it right before I go to sleep, but I’ve had it before (and when I didn’t realize how powerful it was) and it made me sooo sleepy. I decided to use this because my sleep schedule has been sort of off, as i’ve been sick. But it’s pretty good as well!
Okay, I’m writing this note as I watch Monty Python, so this should be interesting.
So I had had this before and I liked it. (John Cleese is robbing a lingerie store). It is pretty peppy. I think that the Acai powder on the ingredients makes it sort of bitter, but also more interesting, as well as the juniper berries (talking trees). I enjoy it. It’s odd, but I enjoy it. I’m not going to give it a really amazing score though, because it leaves a weird taste in my mouth. Okay. And now for something completely different…
Now, the second steep was quite good. It was pretty, light, and fruity.
Hey, this is pretty good! This is my first maté, so i’m guessing that’s what that woodsy flavor underneath is. But I enjoy the almonds, and the chocolate flavor a lot, and I think the raspberry is that slightly tart taste? Hmmm, I’ll have to try more matés I guess. Because this is quite yummy.
Okay. Here are my problems. I was given another Davids Tea teaware thing that I didn’t need, so I returned it, and paid 15 more dollars to buy this. You see, I had been lusting after the Travel Press, the big one, for a while. But at the store the guy convinced me not to buy it for some reason. Regrets, regrets.
-It’s a mug. I like mugs. I can carry around tea.
-It has a place to store tea. (but so does the other one i wanted)
-I’ve burned my mouth SEVERAL times. I have to wait an hour even with the lid off for it to be drinkable. Why would I want to carry around tea that I can’t drink?
-I guess i decided on this one because it was apparently leakproof. IT’S NOT LEAKPROOF. IT LEAKED ALL OVER MY BAG. Gaaaah. fail.
-When I steep rooibos, or teas that have very small leaves, I get a mouthful of tea. What. No. The little holes in the top that separate the steeper from your mouth are waayy too big.
Conclusion: I’m returning this and buying the travel press, and then spending the money I got back on more tea. The End.
This is good tea. I thought that I didn’t like green teas very much; but this was sort of a life changer. It’s very delicate, and the orange flavoring was subtle, but nice. I think it’s actually meant to be steeped cold, but it’s still delicious hot ( I still let the water cool significantly though.)
Okay, here’s the thing. I don’t really like any of Davids Tea chais. I don’t know, the flavor just seems fake? Anyway, I got 2 ounces of this, which is a lot, as a present. I find it rather uninspiring. Not bad, just… meh.
If they still have it in your local store try the Chocolate Chili Chai blend, so far it’s been the Chai blend I have enjoyed the most from DT!
