100

Can’t believe I haven’t added a tasting note for this puppy, yet.

This is my favorite from David’s fall collection. I bought an extra 100 grams to stash away, knowing that this is a limited tea, and I only drink it now on special occasions to make it last. Anyone who wants to try Pu’erh tea but is a bit intimidated by the signature ‘earthy’ taste should consider giving this a whirl. It’s creamy, excellent with a dash of milk, and has an excellent coconut-chocolate taste that isn’t too much of one or the other. (what I mean by that, is that even a friend of mine who doesn’t usually like the taste of coconut enjoys this tea). The blend is, in my eyes, absolutely perfect and if there was a way to rate a tea higher than 100% I would!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

Drat! Too bad this tea is only part of the fall collection! You make it sound fantastic!!! I wonder if David’s will have any remnants still lurking about? If not, I suppose I’ll have to wait till next year! Thanks for the review

@DecemberMint. If it’s still online you can still order some. If you live near a store, just phone ahead to see if they have any in stock. I’ve heard they can also sell you some if it’s out of season and you buy A LOT (I’m talking like a whole canister or something).

The David’s Tea on my street (this is why I’m always there, ladies) still had it when I went in on Monday, along with some of their other fall teas.

I’m looking forward to the two teas being released in December for Christmas.

If there were a David’s Tea on my street, I’d be in so very much trouble.

Beckara

I swear, I think I’ve paid the store’s rent at least once, now ;)

I agree with Jaime, I’d be very much in trouble if there were a Davids on my street as well:) I love reading your notes about their teas Beckara!

Bio

Hello, Steepster!

I’m a twenty-something who attends Concordia University studying English Lit and Irish Studies. I also work at an online store that sells party supplies and costumes! My life is literally a party everyday!

Besides my work/school I’m also a comic book lover. I love attending conventions and have, in the past, done so in costume! (In 2009 it was Sally Jupiter). I also co-author a web comic called Abe and Kroenen and plan on being the author for a couple more upcoming projects. You can check those all out on my website/blog if you’re interested!

Now! About tea!

Formerly an avid coffee drinker I realised that 1. I didn’t really like the taste and 2. I really wasn’t ever getting enough sleep. The switch to tea was, at first, a painful one as extensively my knowledge of tea reached only so far as what was available at Tim Hortons and what my grandmothers kept in their cupboards.

I had a roommate, however, that never drank coffee—and slowly but surely I found myself converted. Then, just last summer, I stumbled upon DavidsTea and my life was changed forever.

Besides David’s, I also visit Teaopia whenever I’m back in Ontario, I’ve recently uncovered Camellia Sinensis in Montreal and new place that I’m yet to try—Milly’s Boutique!

I’m also a strong believer in Twinings and The Stash Company, and I’ve recently ordered some teas from 52teas, The Republic of Tea and Andrews & Dunham and I’m eagerly awaiting their arrival!

P.S. I love to write, and I love tea so expect me to chatter about in my reviews quite a bit!

Current Favorite Teas:
