drank The Earl's Garden by DAVIDsTEA
974 tasting notes

Another sample of Thank You tea from DaisyChubb.

I think this one tastes more like a berry tea than an Earl Grey, but the bergamot is in there. Usually, if I am craving Earl Grey, I don’t want to have to search for it. While this is good, it is not likely one that I will purchase. Thank you so much for the sample! I think I will be filling the cart with Chocolate Rocket, Buttered Rum (yes, I am now stocking this one for the Zombie Apocolypse), and Pumpkin Chai. Yayyyy! It will be my first order at David’s!

Nice! Yes, Buttered Rum is needed for the zombie apocolypse. It’ll help you made friends too, which might be important, depending on the security level of your home or bunker.
A very nice first order, mmyes. approved. n_n;

You need more buttered rum already? : ) Summy has killed my tea consumption, I’m going to have to spend all winter drinking up my collection. Shucks! : )

Need is always relative when it comes to Buttered Rum…. ;) It is one of my favorite flavored teas.

Buttered Rum and Pumpkin Chai are both on the Apocalyse list. I was so mad last year when they gave me a teeny sample of the Pumpkin Chai with one of my orders but when I went to their site they were already sold out. ;)

My motto: Drink the good tea!

Tea enthusiast, trying to keep up my cardio for the zombie apocalypse. I have come to accept that I am a western brewing black tea drinker as that is where my ‘tea heart’ lies. I started on loose leaf as a way to have my dessert and not suffer the caloric issues. Once I tried it, I was hooked.

I drink what I like, which is mostly China blacks, a few traditionally scented blacks and Earl Greys, plus a flavored tea here and there. I don’t mind spending a bit on premium varieties on occasion, but an expensive tea has to deliver. My favorite places to order are Harney & Sons and Upton Tea Imports. TeaVivre is great for Chinese tea.

My ratings are pretty subjective. If it falls under 70, I may not take the time to post about it unless I had something specific to say. If it is 70-80 I like it, but I will probably not rebuy. Favorites are over 80 and up, but sometimes the less expensive or more easily obtainable version of a similar taste will win out for my cupboard space.

Usual teapot steeping method: 24 oz teapot, 3 perfect scoops of tea (4 1/2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual mug steeping method: 15 oz mug, 1.5 perfect scoops of tea (just over 2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual pan method: 1 1/2 cups water, 2 perfect tsp chai (3 actual tsp). Simmer for 3 minutes. Add 2/3 cup skim milk. Simmer for 2 more minutes. Strain and sweeten.

Usual pitcher method:
5 or 6 Perfect Spoons of tea (this means about 7-9 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, brewed essentially double-strong in my 24 oz teapot for 4 minutes. Fill my Fiestaware Disc pitcher (about 60 oz.) halfway with ice. Add brewed double-strong tea to the pitcher. Stir it a little and enjoy. No additions.

(*SRP is my Sample/Stash Reduction Plan starting on April 12, 2012. I got so far, but just decided it was too fussy to keep track.)
