drank The Earl's Garden by DAVIDsTEA
504 tasting notes

Yes. This is the tea for me.
I didn’t get a lot, if any, of fruity chunks like in the photo up there, but frankly I don’t care.
because dry, I smell BLACKCURRANT. Ever had Fruitips? Best candy ever. Smells just like that. I oversteeped a bit, but I also don’t care. Because DANG it’s good tea!

The bergamot is not overpowering at all, in fact it’s barely there, dancing with the black currant essence. I suggest a first steep closer to the 4 min side than the 6 minute side.

It’s sweet in the smell like candy but not too sweet in the taste. It’s perfect! (for me, disclaimer. haha)

This would be a totally different experience with a splash of cream and agave. Like berries and cream. yes. Next cup!

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.

The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
