81 Tasting Notes
I liked the package – 8 tea bags for $1.00
7/30 I poured some over Ice and added some sugar – taste like a SNAPPLE.
So.. if you like Snapple, brew it cold.
Good tea, I can see myself drinking this everyday. Can also mix it up with some Yerba Mate for some extra kick at noon time. Tastes like Twinnings English Breakfast tea but slightly stronger. No string, staples, tag, or paper wrapper, so for now I’ll keep it at my work desk.
8/13/12 – I’m giving this tea a higher mark, its great. I’m on my second cup today. Love the taste, great for breakfast. Sometimes I add a splash of milk and sugar. Drank 40 bags, luck for me I had a new box I just opened.
Tried a cup of this in NYC Bleeker Street location. It smelled liked hazelnut liquor (Frangelica). It was mixed with agave and it was a nice tea to try.
8/13/12 – Funny that I bought a 1 oz but haven’t used it in two months. It sits on the shelf and once and awhile I just open it up and sniff.
8/14/12 – Brought 1oz to work, brewing it now, tasted good! Added 1 sugar packet.
9/6/12 – I used up the package! That’s it. This was my first David’s Tea I bought at the Bleeker Street location. I have picked out the nuts that are in the tea after steeping and ate them. Yum.
I drink this Monday – Friday at work everyday from 11am – 3pm afternoons. It has a nice caffeine pick me up. Yerba Mate is so cheap – 1KG (2.2 pounds) for about $6. It will last me about 2 years! Yerba is good with honey, sugar, or mixing other teas to it. I don’t do the gourd / silver straw ritual, instead steep with a tea ball. If I was on a desert island that had hot water, this would be added to my suitcase.
10/11/12 – Taking a break from tea today, went to the bottom office drawer for my first love – Rosamonte Mate. Wow, haven’t had it in awhile, strong, and good!
5/15/2013 – I finished the bag awhile ago. Mission accomplished. Nice strong taste, interested in the Rosamonte Especial now.
