drank Yellow Gem by DAVIDsTEA
52 tasting notes

What a surprise this was!! Wonderful copper golden color and aromas of dry wood, citrus and cooked squash. Lemon rind and mellow fruity sweetness with a touch of vegetation on the palate and a very unique flavor of oil-cured beldi olives adding to the somewhat brisk finish. I usually hate most of the offerings from DAVIDsTEA, but this one was notable. Not amazing, but it is something worth trying.

A Food and Beverage professional for over 15 years in Chicago Illinois and professional musician. Studying tea, along with wine, beer, spirits and food has been a lifetime passion.
Aside from my service profession I am a private music teacher and music director for multiple music ensembles including The Chicago Zither Orchestra.
Pastimes include composing instrumental music, collecting and listening to historical and rare classical music recordings, gourmet cooking and enjoying the sport of baseball.

Tea: I am really into a wide variety of teas. I tend to avoid flavored teas but will try herbal teas. If I had to list favorites I am a fan of Japanese shaded green teas, Darjeeling 1st flushes, Assam 2nd flushes, Pu-erh (sheng and shou), Oolongs and delicate refined whites. I really do not have a favorite tea, just as I do not have a favorite food, wine, artist or composer… as there are just far too many enjoyable variables and differences that can be “my favorite” depending on the context.

Feel free to private message me about whatever.
