Aaaaand, it also makes an awesome syrup for cheesecake! It’s more watery than I expected, and very sweet. But then, very sweet is how I like it. The best part about how liquid it is is that the crust soaks up a lot of it! Recipe courtesy DAVIDsTEA:

-6 teaspoons of tea
-1 cup water
-1 cup sugar

Brew the tea in the water as you normally would, then strain the tea into a small saucepan. Slowly stir in the sugar and simmer on medium-low for 10-15 minutes.

When I have more energy I swear I will get back to reviews. I not only have my last 52teas order to review (which arrived about the time my computer went down, I think), but my Verdant order arrived on Friday too!

Bio

I’ve always been a tea drinker – I grew up drinking Tetley’s Orange Pekoe and their Chai, and considered myself to really like tea.

I’ve been working various retail jobs to put myself through higher education. One day at my store, a customer left a newly purchased bag of loose-leaf behind. We waited for three days for said customer to return, but they (likely not realizing where they had left their bag) did not return to claim the would-be brew. Too bad for them; lucky for me! I claimed the bag, took it home, and awkwardly made my first cup of loose-leaf tea with the only strainer we owned which was small enough.

I haven’t bothered with Tetley since. For the most part (and due to convenience), my patronage is limited to David’s Tea and Teavana. I also order from 52teas and Verdant Tea.

My rating system – hah, I don’t have a rating system. I rate teas a lot like Ebert rates movies. Everything’s relative.

I may often forget to mention it, but you can safely assume everything I drink is sweetened in one way or another – most rock sugar, or honey for green and white teas. I have not yet achieved drinking most tea clear. The few teas I drink unsweetened include milk oolong and genmaicha so far.

I currently work for Teavana. But I just work there, and my opinions about any of their teas are entirely my own and not meant to be reflective of the views of the company.
