drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA
2900 tasting notes

One of DT’s best blends. I brewed this strong (~45 minutes) with a touch of vanilla soy milk and this is one of the best cups I’ve ever had. Very thick and creamy, like custard or whipped cream, rich, desserty, and naturally sweet.

Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Custard, Sweet, Thick

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

This is EASILY in my top five all time favourite DT blends! Glad you enjoyed :)

Roswell – I’d be interested to hear what your favorite 5 (or 10?20?) David’s blends are.

Roswell Strange

Haha, it does shift a bit depending on the season but a rough “top ten” would probably be…

1. Cranberry Pear
2. Blueberry Jam
3. Apple Custard
4. Rhubarb Cream Soda
5. Sweet Potato Pie
6. Banana Grapefruit
7. Rose Matcha
8. Cherry Lucuma
9. Rose Oolong
10. Peach Mai Tai

Honorable mentions to Sticky Rice Oolong, Root Beer Float, Peach Zing, Mojito Matcha, Redberry Tonic, Gold Rush, Supreme Pekoe, Royal White Peony, Tropicalia, and Grapefruit Rose Starburst though! They would be the rest of a “top twenty” list.

oh cool, thanks. Your faves are mostly fruity! I do miss Root Beer Float. Hopefully sweet potato pie is brought back this year.

Roswell Strange

Definitely pretty fruity overall – but interestingly the majority of my fruity favourites are also creamy and/or versatile (in that they work hot/iced/latted/with lemonade/etc). I don’t tend to prefer teas that I can only enjoy when made one way.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
