My first pot accidentally steeped for about 20 minutes. Needless to say, it was rather, uhh, undrinkable.

A 3 minute steep is infinitely better. So far this is my favourite tea from David’s, with Carrot Cake a close second. I think that the other plain black teas I have might be more complex, nuanced, etc. Maybe a side-by-side comparison needs to happen so I can straighten out my ratings.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
