I’m really undecided on this tea so far. I can’t say that the smell from my Winter sampler pouch is very appetizing to me… I get a bit of a rancid nut smell to it?

I grew up drinking black teas (again British parents), and always drank my tea with some milk in it – well as this one was steeping i could very definitely smell the bitter smell of the black tea (to me anyways) so I immediately decided I’d have to try this one with a splash of milk (and went for a small squirt of agave syrup as well).

So I sit down to my first sip… I can taste the hint of banana in it and maybe a bit of the nut (not smelling the rancid nut anymore TG!). But my overall impression so far? Its really not one I see myself wanting to sit down and relax with. I’ll finish my cup ‘o tea and after that? Well, I will be brewing a pot in the next little bit for the kids to try – but I don’t see myself rushing out to buy more of this anytime soon.

My tea is cooling down now, I’m about half way through it… Got to say that I’m starting to find the flavour a bit more pleasant… Wondering if anyone has tried this one iced?

My parents are British so I grew up drinking tea (usually earl grey or orange peakoe). A month ago while hanging at a local mall, waiting for my car service to be done, I came across David’sTea. Since then I’ve been in loose leaf tea heaven, and my wallet has even getting lighter ;)
