2-3 TB for a gourd, 1 packet stevia (equals 2 tsp sugar)

New batch — ai! David, what happened?? This is all bitter and harsh, and even extra stevia ain’t helping. My darling Jumpy Monkey has jumped away? Oooohh, it pains me, but I gotta haul the rating wayyyy down here.

Preparation

Batrachoid

Oh, that was one of the ones I wanted to order. I hope they reblend it nicely by the time I order.

I think it’s the coffee beans. The first infusion is quite bitter and acidic. Second, third and fourth much, much better. But holy face, that first infusion is nasty. Never used to be.

I should mention that I reported this problem to David’sTea, and they quickly offered to send me a replacement. We’re talking a 250g bag here. Great customer service.

When I hauled the rating down on this batch, it was doen to 34.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
