This smells like cleaner when you open it! The smell does get better when you steep it at least. The flavor is mostly orange and nothing else. I can finish it, but I definitely won’t be buying more. Anyone want to try some?

Unrelated: I’m going to be placing a DAVIDsTEA order soon. Anybody have any suggestions? :)

Greatlin

I’m looking forward to getting mine. I found most of the suggestions on here from another r/tea person. ie: banana oolong. I need an intro to earl greys esp. after seeing all your lady grey posts.. maybe we can swap mints for greys? :)

Emilie

I’ve already had a few that I’m just really interested in trying before they disappear.
Sure! I’ll actually be getting a few Cream Earl Greys soon, so I can send those out as well. I really like Earl Grey, so I’m more than happy to share some of my favorite teas with others :)

Greatlin

Which ones are you referring to? My Davids Teas just came today and I am trying the banana oolong right now. About earl grays- do they all have bergamont in them?

Uniquity

I recommend (based on my liking them) – not sure of your tastes:
-Read My Lips
-Detox
-Lime Gelato
-Wild Yunnan Black
-Spearmint
I’m really interesting in sniffing/trying some of the new cake line, but I’m not sure how they fare yet. ; )

Greatlin

I agree, I just saw the cake line and received the spring catalog and already want to place another order. I was hesitant about the read my lips because of the candy pieces. Do they mess up your infuser or dissolve completely?

Emilie

As far as I know, yes they all do have bergamot. I think that’s what makes it an Earl Grey. However, some are so weak you can’t taste it and some are so strong you need milk to drink it.

I have Santa’s Secret, which has candy candycane bits. It seems like they dissolve well as long as you have it hot enough.

Greatlin

Yeah, I think I don’t like bergamot. It is probably because I don’t take anything with my tea. On the rarest of occasions I may add a bit of honey. Maybe i need to get on the milk and sugar train.

Uniquity

@Greatlin. I don’t find they dissolve completely, but they are pretty minimal. I just dump them out with the rest of the spent leaves. : )

Greatlin

Sounds great! I wasn’t sure if they stuck to the infuser or not. Next order, I’ll have to try it!

Bio

I’m a premed student at a university near Austin. I’ve recently started getting very much into tea, but I’m still learning. I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, and California, and each place has it’s own charm, but Colorado was definitely my favorite place. I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.

I really love swapping, so if anything in my cupboard catches your eye, please let me know!
