Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge: Saturday, March 13th: National Coconut Torte Day Tea #2

additional notes:  A favorite, which is why I decided on it today.  However, now that it’s older, I’m getting this really weird bitter flavor on my mouth like this tea is full of chemicals or something.  It doesn’t really taste like bad coconut yet, which is odd.  And it doesn’t really TASTE like chemicals, but if I lick my lips afterward, it is really bad chemicals.  Such a shame.  I love this crazy blend.  The weirdness seems to be gone by the second steep… I really don’t want to chuck it, as it is impossible to get now.  But if David’s ever reblended it, I would try to drink it very fresh.  OR if another company could try to recreate this naturally?  Looking at the search for ‘coconut cream pie’ on Steepster, there is only a handful of results and I have tried most! The newest/current would be DEB’S!!! Maybe at some point.

I’ve had that with a few DTs, where I thought I used to like a blend and the next time I have it, it tastes like chemicals. I assume it must be something weird happening with the flavouring, but it’s kind of unpleasant.

This might be the first time I noticed with a Davidstea (or really any tea), so I guess I have been lucky.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer… I have a dumb phone so can’t access internet on that. As of 12/20/21 my wifi might start getting unreliable.)

Happy sipping!
