drank Quince Charming by DAVIDsTEA
139 tasting notes

I saw this tea on sale at DT’s a couple days ago and I knew I had to try it. The last quince tea I had I enjoyed especially because it reminded me of lychees, and this one is no exception! At least in the aroma. The dry leaf is very aromatic, and smells like sweet and floral lychee juice. When the tea is brewed, the apple notes start to creep into the aroma, and the flavour is primarily apple, slight tartness, and a sweet note to it that is barely discernible but enjoyable when it hits the tongue once in a while. I would have liked this tea’s flavour profile to reflect more than just the apple ingredients, but nonetheless there is just enough going on in this tea to keep me interested and enjoying the whole cup. I wonder if adding a little bit of rock sugar would help bring those quince notes out in the flavour? Will have to try this next time.

I joined Steepster Nov. 2/’15. I am an aspiring law student, currently studying for the LSAT. Meanwhile, I drink a lot of tea, work as a legal assistant and watch Netflix in my down time.

Ever since joining Steepster, I have tried a whole bunch new tea, met awesome people, and learned quite a lot! I am still expanding my tea horizons, currently working on exploring the oolong and puerh territories. Oolong has been a pleasant journey so far, while puerh is more rocky and uncertain. I shall keep trekking on!

My favourite teas are blacks and greens, both flavoured and unflavoured, and I have a few staples that I drink all the time.

I love to try teas that I would otherwise not have access to, and therefore I am always looking for people to trade samples with. Send me a message if you are interested!

My Wishlist is teas that I would like to restock (as a note to myself). My ratings are mostly arbitrary. Generally, anything above 90 I will likely restock. 70-80 I enjoyed, but will not go out of my way to get again. Anything below 70 was not that great, and the lower the mark the less I enjoyed it.
