drank Whisky White by DAVIDsTEA
440 tasting notes

I don’t know why I keep brewing my whites according to the instructions given because it never turns out how it is supposed to. Seriously, does anyone have any luck with the whites done that way, and if not, why on earth don’t they change the recommendations?

Anyway, so I brewed this one up for the first time full of trepidation. I’m not a whiskey fan at all, and dry it definitely has that liquor smell. Actually it’s so strong dry it almost turns my stomach a little. But I’m determined to try every tea on that wall, so away I went.

Brewed, I was happy to note that it didn’t smell as strong. It was actually almost pleasant. I took my first sip and . . . weakness. I can’t even find notes to it because all I’m getting is a slightly sweet weak white tea in my cup.

Looks like I’m going to be playing with the brewing and seeing if I can get a solid steep.

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.


My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
