drank Honey, I Dew by DAVIDsTEA
58 tasting notes

Advent calendar [15/24]

I was super excited to find another flavoured white in my possession this morning. I’m starting to really like these. I must admit I sampled some of the dried pineapple out of the tin. Very nice!

I got out my new cast iron cups and my trusty old cast iron tea pot. It’s nice not having to sip out of the glass bowls we usually use for mise en place before we cook. That’s kind of where my excitement ended. This tea had a beautiful start in the mouth. It was very delicate and floral. The end of the sip was where I had an issue. All of a sudden, that lovely floral sip turned into a mouthful of sweet sugary syrup. The good news is that this endnote of sweetness disappeared after a half hour. When I drank it in my car, it was definitely gone.

I may try some different steeping and temperature parameters. Perhaps I’m just going to prefer a less flavoured white.

Flavors: Floral, Melon, Pineapple, Sweet

My foray into steeping happened with tin of Oreo cookie and salted chocolate caramel tea, back in college in 2009. I probably bought them for the novelty more than the taste— which sounds like a reason for many of my college-era purchases. The lovely little tea store was bought out by David’s Tea soon after I finished college. While I do enjoy getting tea from places other than malls, it’s difficult to find quality without going online. Most of my stash ends up being from there due to convenience.

I’m an early childhood educator. Tea is a big part of my daily life. I’ve yet to find anything as soothing and as energizing as it.

I’m on a big kick of blacks and herbals, especially straight ones.

90-100: Must get more of this. One sample isn’t enough.
80-89: Great! Would drink it again sometime
60-79: Decent, but probably won’t go back for more
40-59: Glad I tried, but one cup is enough
~40: No thanks. Never again!
