drank Black Needles by DAVIDsTEA
135 tasting notes

Just bought this tea from DavidsTea. I had a hard time deciding which straight black tea I wanted. I usually like dark musky black teas that can stand with a little milk and sugar. I even did a little taste test with my favorite black tea. Copper Knot from Teavana. I brewed both for 3 minutes, same amount of water and same temp. The Black needles had a sweet smell, and very light color like scotch. It had a smooth honey taste, no astringency from it .

I have been drinking it without milk or sugar, its that smooth. love it

I’m a lover of all teas. Open to almost anything,but my favorite are oolong, black, and green. I have recently been trying to get into pu’er .

Other then tea, I’m an Apple fan girl and a fan of basketball and tennis. My favorite teams are Spurs,Celtics, Thunder, and …Lebron (LOL). I have a degree in Anthropology, which at the moment is not being used.
