This is my first taste of any of DavidsTeas, & I’d like to thank Bonnie, wonderful Bonnie, for including this in my care package.

Dry, it has a bit of a pipe-tobacco smell. I steeped for 4 or 5 minutes, & the smell of butter with a drop of vanilla said, “Steep no more”.

It’s a dark tea, & rather than buttered rum, I taste butterscotch. Of course, it’s been a couple decades since any alcohol crossed my lips, so what do I know? Anyway, it IS tasty! A little vanilla, a little coconut, the butter-scotch-iness is decadent, especially lightly sweetened. I’m gonna save the rest of this sample to drink on Sept 19th, which is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Arrrrr…

I noticed that you had no Davids Tea so that’s why I sent it to you.

Thanks, Bonnie! I will need to peruse the David’s tea website to see what else they have. I was looking, then I saw ‘artificial flavors’ on some teas, which caused me to look elsewhere. But the tea you sent was all natural flavors, so I’ll look again! :)

Arr! Then after you finish it on September 11th, I’ll bet you’ll be saying “Why is the rum always gone?”

I meant on the 19th.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
