105 Tasting Notes
Another successful chocolate tea from Davidstea (my other favourites are Read My Lips and Chocolate Chili Chai). It smells exactly like its name (when dry, the coconut is a bit hidden under the strong chocolate aroma). There is floating oil on top of the tea (that probably comes from the chocolate nibs) and added candi sugar. This kind of tea goes well with sugar but I prefer when the company lets us choose what kind of sugar we want to use and how much. Nonetheless, this will be part of my permanent collection.
My first genmaicha! I like it! Although I can’t compare it with other companies… But yeah, the roasted rice goes well with the bitterness of the ‘grassy’ green tea. This can easily be my everyday go-to green tea.
Flavors: Grass, Toast
Løv is more known for herbal tea and, actually, this is not so far from being a herbal tea as there is so little black tea in it (more or less half of it). It’s a sort of chai tea with almond aromas. Although cacao nibs is the first ingredient, I don’t really taste it. It’s a warm, spicy tea with a hint of liquorice that, just like its name suggests, is perfect for winter nights. It is so spicy though, I wouldn’t drink it every day.
Flavors: Almond, Anise, Cinnamon, Licorice
The tea that I brought with me on my trip to Italy, the tea that holds dear memories. This is the Dammann tea that I’m most looking forward to buy again. I was curious but sceptic when I decided to buy this because the flavouring is quite special… Vodka, prunes… But it smells delicious and it tastes delicious!
The sound of a white chocolate and mint herbal tea sound very interesting. I already love Read My Lips, which is a chocolate and mint black tea so I thought Snow day would be its caffeine-free version. First, the smell is awfully repelling, it’s like a very strong mint, the kind you would find in a cleaning product. The tea itself is not so bad: the mint is not as strong and we can taste more the chocolate. It’s nowhere as good as Read My Lips but it’s worth trying.
