Good Morning Friends,
It’s been quite some time since I did a review, let alone one on tea! I hope you are all doing well, and enjoying the change of seasons. Here in New York, I’m enjoying the weather finally cooling down enough for me to wear my lovely fall sweaters and to bake some very yummy cookies, but most important of all, I’m able to cozy up to a nice, warm cup of tea.
I decided to pursue DAVIDsTEA for a few reasons. I’ve always been recommended their tea by friends, they have a very strong and popular following which made me curious to look at what they had to offer. When I checked them out, they have creative tea blends which are decently priced, cute mugs and tea brewing equipment-especially seasonal, and they have great deals quite frequently on their website. Speaking of said sales, I decided that for my first purchase from DAVIDsTEA, I would try their best seller sampler pack.
English Toffee-Pu’Erh Tea-High Caffeine
Steeping: 4 minutes at 205ºF (96ºC) – 1 tsp/single cup
Aroma: chocolate, caramel, nutty
Flavor: bold, smooth earthiness with a subtle tone of chocolate and caramel
Liquor: dark molasses
An intense start to my morning, this tea’s bold and smooth flavor do not go unnoticed. What I enjoyed of it was the acute earthiness with the subtle tone of chocolate paired well with my light breakfast of french toast this morning. Another note that I enjoyed about this tea was the inviting aroma that it possesses: the warmth of fresh chocolate mixed with caramel and a nuttiness that made me want to pair it complimentary with a Heath bar. All around, I can see why this tea has such great reviews and it raved about by its fans. I rank this tea as an 8/10.
Thank you for reading my review, below I have posted links for those whom are interested in trying this tea or the sampler pack. Until next time, may your tea be delightful and brewed to perfection.
Thank you for stopping by to read my review!
