An Ode to Tea challenge – G

From the sampler tower I bought a while ago!  Still pouting that there was really only three teaspoons of each sample.  Gone now!  This is a DESSERT TEA whoa.   It is so sugary! And since it’s new the stevia hasn’t gotten overly gross yet.  New stevia is OKAY.  Old stevia is just BAD.  I recently had my first blondie brownie during the holiday season and is it just me (or that specific blondie?) but a blondie to me is like a big block of raw cookie dough and I’m all for that dessert. haha.  This tea is much the same.  Sweet sweet, the sweetest tea I’ve ever had that is less like gingerbread and more like cookie dough, maybe with a hint of lemon for some reason?  I like it!  I’m surprised at the low rating.  But honestly, I can’t taste the ingredients here like all the fruit under all that sweetness. Not even the ginger! The star and gingerbread sprinkles are adorable.   In future, one teaspoon is more than enough.  I seem to like this more than most! Sad it’s gone, but not sad I didn’t have to taste old stevia.  I would like to revisit those blondies again though…

I actually agree about stevia. I’m fine with it when it’s fresh, but I get a weird metallic/bitter aftertaste from old stevia. I even get that if I leave a cup with stevia in it out and go back to it later. When I drank it right away it tasted fine, later it tasted weird…

Davids Tea Advent Day 6

I’m not sure what’s going on with this tea. It brewed so weak at first I added more. It smells like an overly sweet baked gingerbread, but the taste is more of a tart fruit covered in sugar with a hit of spicy ginger at the end. The gingerbread sprinkles were adorable, at least?

I had a sample of this from the holidays last year. One of my colleagues gave me one of the little DT ornaments with tea inside it, so I finally brought it home when I went into the office the other day.

Ehhh. I am not so much a fan. I did pick out all the white star and orange people sprinkles in full disclosure. However, with the sugared fruit pieces, I think the sugar is weirdly cloying here. Also, there seems to be a hint of lemon, which might be nice, but the cloying just seems to cancel it out sadly. The scent and a little bit of the flavour actually comes off like those old school flavoured marshmallows I had as a kid.

I’m just going to throw the rest of this away and call this a sipdown.

It’s a weird one, but I do actually seem to be in the minority and enjoy this one.

I only had another 1-2 cups worth left, but if I had had more, I may have sent it over to you!

Tiffany :)

No worries, I bought a little (6 oz?) last year. It’s not like “OMG AMAZ!” or anything but I’ll enjoy the little bit I have. :) What teas have you been enjoying lately?

Courtney

Hahah! It’s important to grab our favs when we can. My go-to for years has been TTC Yuchi Wild Mountain Black, but others that I keep reaching for lately are B&B Vicky’s Sponge Cake and Rhubarb & Custard. Also just re-ordered another fav for years: Bailin Gongfu. How about you?

This one smells a lot like alpine punch. It tastes mostly like somewhat spicy ginger. The flavor isn’t too deep, and it’s not super special, but it’s decent. There’s nothing that contributes to the blondie flavor, so I consider this tea to be poorly named. There’s a little bit of a pineapple flavor in some sips and also some strangeness. It takes milk pretty well. As usual, I’d rather have straight ginger tea. The resteep was good. I wouldn’t say it’s special enough to buy, but it’s not one I’d mind drinking.

The flavor most at the forefront of your sip is the spicy ginger, it lingers for a moment until the creamy vanilla takes over in the after taste. What’s odd is that I felt as though the two flavors never met, there was a first flavor and an after flavor but the middle was flavorless as if something was noticeably missing. I don’t know if perhaps this tea would be better suited as a latte, to have the milk bring the ingredients together with a little more, but as a plain hot cup, something’s a little off with Gingerbread Blondie.

Caramel, gingery goodness. Satisfyingly cozy but does not stand out.

When I tried this in store, I was like meh – because it tasted similar to the older tea, Ginger Beer… But trying this again at home it is great! I can really taste the vanilla this time, which definitely makes it different. I actually really like this one. It’s a good balance between the ginger, fruit and vanilla. I’m going to have to order some.

In short- I find this tea gross. The ginger comes off as artificial and almost chemical-like. All I can taste is the stevia and pineapple, which really turns my stomach combined with the overwhelming ginger aroma. Dumped.

Really did not enjoy. I expected it to taste like a gingerbread vanilla cookie, but it was FAR too fruity. The pineapple (i think) overpowered all the ginger.

G is for… Gingerbread Blondie!

I had a lot more fun with my “G” teas than I had expected to – before looking through my cupboard to see what teas might fit the day, I expected there to just be a lot of ginger/gingerbread teas – and yes that was true, but there were some other very fun teas and blends I’d forgotten about!

In the end, this was the only Gingerbread that I ended up steeping up and I actually loved this mug!! It was so much more buttery/vanilla and pastry than I had remembered it tasting in the past – definitely still pops of fruitiness from the apple in the blend and a bit from the pineapple, with a top/bright sweetness from all the candied fruit but after each sip and that wave it high notes it was like the profile shifted gears into this more indulgent and pastry inspired vanilla biscuit flavour, with the ginger heat and tickle rounding out that sip. It was much, much nicer than I remembered.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

Evol Ving Ness

Funny, some of my do’s blends have aged really wee and taste much better than I remember.

Evol Ving Ness

Bloody autocorrect.

TeaEarleGreyHot

Really wee, lol! Yes, sometimes the angels take more than their “share”. But then, less is more!

TeaEarleGreyHot

(And, yes, autoincorrect can be a nuisance)

tea-sipper

But “do’s” there? I’m drawing a blank on that one for autocorrect. :D
