141 Tasting Notes
Day 4 on the adevent calendar. So I was really excited to try this tea out. the leaves themselves didn’t smell like anything. When I boiled some water and steeped the tea, I could tell where it got its name. All I could smell was salt, it was actually a turn off for me. The taste was pretty heavy on the salt too, almost didn’t taste the caramel. Halfway through the mug, I decided to put some milk in to better the flavor… it kind of imporved it. Overall I don’t think I like this one all too much, but it’s way better than the Coco Chai Rooibos.
So this is day three of my advent calendar. I am not the biggest fan of chai, so I wasn’t particularily excited to try it out. The smell was part rooibos/ part chai… and same with the taste. I was actually fine with the taste. That was until my stomach started hurting really bad. So I have figured that the worst thing of chai tea is that my stomach doesnt like it.
So I’m onto day 2 of the Dsvid’s Tea advent calendar. I brewed up some chocolate rocket. Since I tried the cocoa canela before and was dissapointed with the lack of chocolate flavour in it, I though chocolate rocket may be the answer to my prayers. Unfrotuneately, I don’t think I like chocolate rocket too much. The smell was meh for me. and the taste was okie. I mean nothing like ewww won’t ever drink this again and not like omg I loved it. It’s just meh.
So today I am having a (late) start to my advent calendar. I have opened the teas up till todays date, but today is the first tea I’m drinking. I love buttered rum, so kudos to David’s Tea to start their advent calendar with such a awesome tea. Today I decided to put some milk with my buttered rum. So nice and soothing.
So this is what made me have no tea for about a week. Beofre you start bashing my fave tea… let me explain better. So last week I got sick and had to take gross antibiotics, so the mixture of the two made me lose my sense of taste and sense of smell. On Staruday, Iwas more than overjoyed to begin my 24 days of tea-venture only to find out that I couldn’t smell the wonder that is buttered rum and its lovely taste.
So I have been drinking this tea this weekend and monday and tuessday since I bought a tin last week. I will need to get another of these tins before the hoildays are done. I just love the candy cane smell of this tea and the candy cane and black tea taste. I couldn’t have any today because I ran out in my travel contianer.
