drank Serenity Now by DAVIDsTEA
12 tasting notes

One of the things I love most about teas is that while there might be a real consensus here and there, many times taste is a very situated preference, something that is articulated differently in everyone. That’s my disclaimer. I didn’t care for this tea.

Hibiscus right up front and center. Tight and tart. Is it too much to mention that this is the exact opposite of “serenity” for me? Spearmint is definitely present too. It’s a little like your grandmother’s travel perfume leaked in her purse and drowned her pack Wrigley’s at the bottom. Not for me. Couldn’t make it through the cup.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Spearmint, Tart

I spend most of my day with books, and tea has become a spectacular way of both beginning, breaking, and ending the day. I also hobby around in the kitchen and a rooftop garden in my spare time.

As for taste, I’m really into well-composed natural herbals with nutty, piny, vegetal, or floral notes as well as bold, complex blacks, including chais. Milky matchas and taros are favorite indulgences, too, but in all honestly, I’m here to learn more about tea and am hoping to make my way into Oolongs and Pu-erhs as I empty out my cupboard. All the same, I hope my logs in general tell a story of palate expansion, discovery, and a fair bit of fun. I’ll try anything once.
