Wow, this is sweet, REAL sweet, and I like sweet, but this may be way too sweet for even me! As warned by another reviewer and the fact that the ingredients list includes rock sugar, I didn’t sweeten, but added a splash of almond milk, and it’s really freaking sweet! Usually that’s a good thing, but I think I would have preferred to be able to sweeten it to my liking. The sweetness kind of takes away the flavors that you expect from the delicious smell, which is a tragedy.

I think DavidsTea needs to stay away from the rock sugar. Glad I only bought an ounce of this one. It could have been so much better! So bummed!

Soooooo sweet. :/
I can only imagine how delicious it could have been if they’d let us decide for ourselves how much sugar it needed (if any)

Ya, no kidding! My coworker said hers wasn’t too sweet, so maybe the portion of leaf she used had less sugar in it? IDK.

Or maybe she has more of a sweet tooth?

Maybe, but it’s hard to beat my sweet tooth! Ha!

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
