A lot of people like this… Except for me. It’s my second and last attempt. I will have to gift some of it. My partner likes it but she doesn’t drink a whole lot of tea. I will keep some back and my partner’s mother would like a little.

It’s just too much spice in here for me. I like chais, I really do, so I don’t understand why I am not enjoying this. There’s a bitterness from the cloves. Maybe I just don’t like cloves. I sugared it and put whipped cream on top too (yah, really). Too clove-y. Blech.

Changed the rating. I don’t know what I was thinking when I rated the first time at 74. No way

I keep seeing different people review this, and they all seem to have the same opinion: it’s sparkly but not good. I don’t know if it’s one I would try, but I’m curious to see what it looks like.

it’s david’s tea so you can always pick up 10g to sample it if you’re anywhere near an actual store heh

it’s not even that sparkly. I imagined really glittery stuff but you only notice this if you look at it carefully.

Bio

I started drinking loose leaf tea in the spring of 2013 (why do we feel compelled to mark the date of tea drinking somewhat like addicts counting their sobriety days?)

Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I lean heavily towards flavoured black teas. I’ve started to crave the occasional straight oolong and green but so far unflavoured black teas leave me unimpressed.

I’m learning so I drink them all. Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

Note*: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity.

Note**: My partner, our home improvements, gadgets, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
