drank Peanut Butter Cup by DAVIDsTEA
894 tasting notes

This one is so interesting. Peanut butter is such an unusual flavour profile for tea that I had to grab a sample when it came out. It smells incredible – very authentically peanutty, impressively so for a tea that contains no peanuts. But I was kind of expecting this to be terrible. My partner tried a cup and wasn’t into it, and it just seemed so likely that this would be a miss. I was anticipating watery and weak.

My first sip I got a lot of tart apple and was kind of meh about it. But I’m actually very impressed with how full-mouth and creamy the peanut flavour is. It lingers strongly on the palate after the sip is over and tastes like actual peanuts.

I’m not getting more than the faintest impression of chocolate here, so I’d say that “peanut butter cup” is a bit of a misnomer – more like apple slices with peanut butter, but I like it.

I used up my whole sample to make this cup, but I’d drink it again if it landed in my cupboard, though I probably won’t go out of my way to find any.

I grew up drinking jasmine green tea with meals, but really fell in love with tea on a trip to Britain in elementary school. My first great love was Earl Grey, and I still adore it and all its variants.

I discovered the beauty of loose leaf tea much later, when, on impulse, I picked up a few teas that were on clearance at a home store. My introduction to loose leaf teas were Masala Chai and Provence Rooibos by the Metropolitan Tea Co and an unknown brand of kukicha and gyokuro (little did I know what a precious treasure I’d stumbled onto with that.)

At the time I was lucky to live in a place with multiple tea shops and several places to have afternoon tea, which is a delight I still miss.

Tea is part of my daily ritual and a nice, affordable way to appease the collector in me.

I enjoy distinctive whites, greens and oolongs, flavoured blacks, and herbals that are heavy on the citrus, lavender or mint.

Rating rubric, to give myself some consistency:
0-15 Yuck, not even drinkable.
16-30 Disappointing, not really inclined to give it a second try.
31-45 Disappointing, but maybe there’s potential? Worth one more try, prepped differently.
46-60 Mediocre, not terrible but not memorable.
61-75 Not bad. I’ll definitely finish what I have and might buy again.
76-90 Very enjoyable. Tasty, complex, it’ll keep me coming back.
91-100 BEST! I love everything about it and I will drink it forever.

Beyond tea, I’m a sex educator, polyamory activist, and radical queer. I love backwoods camping, abstract painting, baking & cooking, nail polish, cats, ceramic sculpture, and home nesting.
