drank Yellow Gem by DAVIDsTEA
880 tasting notes

Typically, when going to DAVIDsTea to hang out with friends, the to-go teas are quite underleafed. I either have to pay a bit more for them to add another tea bag or just suffer silently through a weak tea. I do wish they had smaller cup sizes.. With all of that said, I was quite happy to note that this tea held up to the amount of water in the to-go cup. It was a pleasant yellow tea. I cannot say great things about it nor can I say bad things about it. Slight bit of astringency, mostly smooth, a bit vegetal, a bit creamy, a bit sweet. Though, I consumed this tea after drinking The Full Moon at The Slaughtered Lamb, so my judgement may have been a bit impaired. Still, a nice experience. Would have again… maybe after another Full Moon or Blood Bath.

I joined Steepster back in August of 2009. Since then, I have been lurking around shyly and taken it all in. Just recently, I decided to log all of the teas that I have in my cupboard and from there I decided to be a bit more active on the site!

I’m addicted to four things: Tea, wolves, indie perfume, and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

My favorite teas right now: Ming Hong and Halmonicha

Broadly speaking I also love: Most Chinese red teas, most Fujian oolongs, and balhyochas.

I’ve been drinking loose-leaf teas since childhood. I love everything from tieguanyin to gyokuro to a good British cuppa. I am looking forward to trying every tea type out there and building an extensive pu-erh library.
