I figured I’d try this as DT has their 1$ straight tea sale happening now. I had hoped for a more complex tea but it’s not to be. This kind of reminds me of your classic “red rose” tea. It’s not quite as bland as that, but it’s also not the rich black tea that I’d hoped for. Happy to have tried it and I wouldn’t turn it down but not what i was looking for.

I so wish there was a David’s Tea near me. I would go there every day! Or at least every work day. :)

It’s funny, now that i’ve had other teas from other companies, DT is one of my “meh” places. IE if i HAVE to go there I will, but I’d prefer other places. :)

You know this blend is 90% Darjeeling, right? Maybe I am misunderstanding you, but that’s not a tea type I’d describe as “rich” anyway, shouldn’t it be lighter?

@ daniel thanks for threminder. I guess in my head i just associate black with rich, forgetting that some are lighter :)

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
