736 Tasting Notes

This wasn’t like other strawberry teas I’ve tried. Often the strawberry flavor is too much, but this tea tastes creamier. It’s kinda nice actually. If you’re a big strawberry fan, this is the tea to buy! Too many other strawberry teas are overwhelming, but this one is just right (:

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
736 tasting notes

I expected this to be a whole lot nuttier than it actually was. Tastes salty, and yet there’s some kind of raisin-ish flavor going on. With just a pinch of cinnamon. Definitely interesting and not what I expected. But it isn’t horrible. xD Just interesting.

Virginia

Salty, really? Lol that’s weird.

Virginia

I find this tastes like baked apples :P

Ost

Oh that actually sounds right too!
I’m very confused about this tea xD

I don’t think I’ve ever tried Earl Grey, always figured it was up there with the classic teas that you add milk to, which I am not a fan of. So I never bothered trying it. I’m glad I did though, because I realize it’s not all that terrible!
I can’t really compare it to any other kind of Earl Grey, but it was alright. Not my favorite, but not terrible either! It just makes me feel like Capt. Picard. xD Makes me wanna watch The Next Generation of Star Trek xD

Tea! Earl Grey! Hot! (The replicator must not be programmed with the proper steeping temperature.)

After 4 hours of sleep it was nice to brew up a few cups of this tea. It smells so strong…I can’t really place how it tastes.
They definitely got the name right. It is pretty fragrant. Kinda ends up tasting fragrant too, now to think of it. xD
I would never have thought to buy this but they threw it in my order…it’s kinda expensive tea, but now I have to buy more since it’s so good.
And it’s helping me wake up-so it’s the perfect tea for today ^^

I drank this oolong several months ago and remember how spectacular it was to look at, I even took pictures of it. A great tea!

Ost

For some reason when I opened the package I didn’t expect it to be twigs or whatever you call them xD I was all “This won’t be super strong” man…those twigs proved me wrong xD

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
736 tasting notes

I wouldn’t have thought to buy this tea on my own, but after tasting the sample that Virginia, so generously gave me, I am gonna have to buy some more!
The aroma is so strong, it made my entire room smell like chocolate which is awesome-who wouldn’t want their room to smell like chocolate?!
And the taste…holy Shanghai, you guys!
It literally tastes like mint chocolate chip ice cream! Which is my favorite kind of ice cream! What’s even better is that tea won’t be as likely to give me terrible heartburn as ice cream will-so clearly, this tea is a winner!
I’m so ridiculously excited right now. ^^ Totally gonna buy more. Thanks, Virginia! :D

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
736 tasting notes

The aroma of this tea is light, not too strong. Even when I took the first sip the flavor didn’t really “pop” out at me. But a few sips in I could definitely taste the salted caramel. Which was spot on-just didn’t come on as strong as other flavors do.
But it was good. ^^ Actually I think that my mum, who doesn’t really like tea, would like it. She loves salted caramel. I’ll have to get her to try it! XD

drank Red Velvet Cake by DAVIDsTEA
736 tasting notes

This tea smelled pretty cake-y. But when I went to actually drink it it tasted kinda like Tealux’s Cream Irish Breakfast tea. It’s kinda battery I suppose. Not at all what I expected. I’ve tried other company’s red velvet teas, and they’re usually really chocolatey or sweet. But this just tastes kinda batter-y? Well it’s not terrible. It’s just…interesting. XD Probably won’t buy anymore of it-but was nice to try!

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
736 tasting notes

So it says on Steepster that this is a green tea…and yet, I freakin’ love this tea xD It tastes exactly how it smells-like caramel-y, buttery popcorn. It’s just a mix of all that. Kinda tastes a bit salty too. Exactly what you’d wanna drink while watching a movie! One day I’ll have to eat popcorn and drink this tea…bet it will be amazing. I’m really excited to try that now xD
Definitely buying more of this! :D

drank Creme Brulee by DAVIDsTEA
736 tasting notes

Not sure if I steeped enough tea…but it has a very delicate, caramel-y taste to it. It doesn’t have tons of flavor-at least this steep doesn’t. Perhaps I’ll just have to steep more next time. Maybe I’ll try mixing it with something, or simply, steep more next time.xD I’ll figure it out soon-thank you for this sample, Virginia! :D

Flavors: Caramel, Cream

Lariel of Lórien

Try it with the Birthday Cake… or Oh Canada.

Ost

I will definitely have to try that-thanks! :D

Profile

Bio

I’m not too sharp with intros, but I figured it is about time to give it a go.
I started out drinking oolong and green tea that my dad brought home from his China business trips.
Then I discovered Teavana, and fell in love with some of their teas. Eventually I stumbled across Steepster, and a whole ‘nother world opened up.
Have discovered so many different kinds of teas, and have been loving this journey! The tea world is insanely big and amazing! And I’ve met some of the kindest people here who have broadened my horizons in more ways I could have imagined! Happy to be here, and to be drinking so many amazing teas! :D

My rating system:
1-59: Really really not a fan. An awful cup of tea for me…Totally undrinkable.

60-69: Not horrible, but not something I’d ever drink again willingly.

70-79: Pretty good. Wouldn’t mind drinking ever so often. But not a keeper.

80-100: FREAKIN’ AMAZING. Always keeping on stock in my home!!

I like pretty much any kind of tea except green tea. Unless it’s genmaicha or strongly flavored, I don’t like it usually.

My Tea Goals:
To find the Best Caramel Tea
To find the Best Vanilla Tea
To find the Best floral Oolong
To find the Best Malty Assam Tea
To find the Best Maple/Syrup Tea

Notes I like: Fruit(primarily peach, melon/honeydew, Banana, Kiwi, but I’m open to other kinds), Malt, Desserts (Toffee, Cake, Cookie,etc), Vanilla, Caramel, Floral, Sweet potato, Pastry/Bread,Jasmine, Honey, Cocoa, Chocolate, Maple, Nutty, Coconut, Almond.

Notes I’m Picky with: Lemon, Chai, Roasted, Blueberries, Hibiscus, Smoke, Earthiness, Puerhs, White Teas, and Cinnamon

Notes I hate: Citrus/Orange (Everything that I hate in this life that I have to take for my health is orange flavored, and it just makes me gag…so please…just no), Watermelon, Raspberry, Wood, Apple, Bacon, Lavender, Most mints, Pepper, Spicy, Tart/sour.

Yes, I am a picky tea drinker, but I’ll usually try any straight black or oolong tea that I receive. I like most oolongs, and I’m still discovering straight blacks. They always seem to surprise me no matter what!

And Swaps! I’m always down for swapping. Everything in my cupboard is swap-able. So just hit me up and send a message and we can totally do that!

On an unrelated to tea note, my other interests are limited due to health issues. But when I can, I enjoy reading and writing. Watching Netflix and YouTube have also been fantastic when I feel awful (which is most of the time).
I love Rifftrax, Rooster Teeth, Dexter, Hannibal, BBC’s Robin Hood, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Psych, and Parks and Rec.
Love watching all sorts of movies too, but that would be too much to list. :P
I’m definitely more of an internet person and love talking to people on every website I’m on. So if you ever wanna chat, shoot me a message! ^^
