drank Jasmine Crème Brulée by DAVIDsTEA
1123 tasting notes

This was a freebie, thrown into my Poshmark order, courtesy of a nice seller.
I like it more than I expected to.
I try to stay away from things that have artificial flavour in them but it’s not always easy since so many things have it included these days, this tea being one of them. I thought about docking it a mark based on that fact alone but I can’t justify it as I actually really enjoyed it and the flavour was surprisingly good. It deserves the 80 that I have given it.
Sometimes in a tea, I can’t taste all of the advertised ingredients but this was an exception as I can taste most of the components. The green tea itself is a tad astringent, not quite as smooth as I’d like it to be but you can definitely taste the jasmine in there. It has a sweetness to it but it’s tempered so it’s not too sweet. I can sense an overall fruitiness in general but it’s the apple that stands out the most. It brings to mind a creamy, vanilla, custard type of dessert, making this tea successful in trying to achieve the effect of a Creme Brulee.
This made for a satisfying sipping experience. I won’t seek it out to buy (I would if it didn’t have artificial flavouring) but I did thoroughly enjoy my mugful.

Flavors: Apple, Creamy, Custard, Fruity, Green, Jasmine, Sweet, Tannin, Vanilla

Bio

I’ve been a member of Steepster since 2014 and decided to finally update my ancient Bio now that it’s 2022. (Updating again in 2024!)

I’ve loved tea my entire life, since I was a kid. Starting with Orange Pekoe, then Irish Breakfast, Rosehip, Earl Grey, Green and White and now, I’ll drink or at least try, just about any tea.

One of my favourite things to do is meeting my friends at the coffee shop, sitting and sipping for hours while we chat and laugh and enjoy each other. We try to do this at least once a week or when our work schedules match up. Tea and coffee brings people together!

I live in Ontario, Canada and work at a Winners/Homesense combo store.
I have a 12 year old cat, Tucker, who is diabetic and asthmatic (and completely toothless) but still enjoys his life to the fullest and he truly is the sweetest boy.(Tucker sadly passed away in 2023, one month after he turned 14.)

I don’t always post every single time I drink tea, I’m kind of sporatic that way but I do enjoy reading what you all are drinking and your reviews.

Stay safe and healthy!
