drank Apple Cider by DAVIDsTEA
106 tasting notes

Real apple cider is my favorite part of fall. Unfortunately, it’s easy to get the flavor wrong – and this one was very wrong.

It didn’t have a strong flavor overall while drinking. Both the spices and apple were detectable but weak. The artificial sweetness lingered, and the aftertaste was a manufactured apple candy made with sugar substitutes. I wanted to give it an honest try, but I poured it out before I could get through half the cup.

(also DAVIDsTEA caffeine free advent, day 20 – but I’m not drinking this again)

Great at buying tea, good at drinking tea, bad at timely reviews. Drawn to fruit, floral, spice, and flavored teas in general; prefer those that stand well without milk or sweetener.

Still figuring this out, but slowly adding to cupboard. I rate when a package is finished as I’m deciding whether to reorder.

I think of my ratings as letter grades.
90-100 A: loved it; want to rebuy immediately so I have it on hand
80-89 B: tasty; would pick it up again but okay to wait until I get through other teas
70-79 C: good; could grab with a good deal
60-69 D: okay; would keep in a set but may not repurchase on its own
0-59 F: various shades of bad; would not purchase; closer to 0 means may not even drink again if offered
