Second steep…All the little bits of mint and rooibos are floating at the top of my mug…I love watching tea steep! This steep is a little weaker than others have been in the past, but I’m also dealing with a larger mug than I’m used to. I don’t think I’ll push it to a third today, but this second is really quite good. It is more of a true mint flavour, since most of the creamy and tea aspects backed off in the first. Not a sharp mint, still true to the mojito flavour, but really good. I so love this tea, even if the liquor does look nasty like swampwater in my blue mug. : )

OK, you’re the unofficial spokesperson for David’s Tea, right? I’ve figured you out? lol

I’m actually going to treat myself to that perfect tea mug you mentioned your guy bought you. I need a larger mug for work -w/infuser is bonus. Seems like it is working well for you… (lucky)

: ) I am overfond of David’s Tea…I think largely due to the lack of tea shops in my area. There are only three independents and one chain (the chain being David’s Tea). I’m not much of an internet shopper as I like to smell and see things first (exceptions being 52Teas and Joy’s Teaspoon!) I also prefer strongly flavoured teas, which is what DT does best : )

I’m sure there are lots of other mugs out there that would work, for a better price ($20 is a bit steep, in my books) but it’s super cute and I’ve wanted one for a while. I’ve recently developed a bit of a teacup obsession to go nicely with my journal, book, tea obsessions.

Well, this needed refreshing. I have been drinking loose leaf for many years, and have fairly well nailed down my tastes. I love Chinese blacks and some other unflavoured teas. I occasionally drink flavoured teas, or herbals, but the bulk of my tea is unflavoured with no additives. I stock regularly from Teavivre with the occasional Verdant purchase and the odd re-stock at Davids. I love mint, am learning about the wide world of puerh, and prefer ripe to raw, so far. I don’t like green or green oolongs very much, white is okay and roasted oolongs are pretty good. Coconut and chamomile are awful, and I wish they weren’t in so many blends!

At home, I live with my husband and cat in a house built by my grandfather, which we love. We share many interests – books, tea, video games, board games, tv/movies. On top of that, I love crosswords and recently took up knitting again, so I’m having a hard time balancing all my passions at the moment. I’m a big fan of Doctor Who, as is my entire immediate family. I love spreading the Who love!

We also spend a lot of time with family, when we can. I’ve got a gaggle of younger brothers, and we like to spend time with them. The wonders of the internet allow us to spend time together even though some of them live a few hours away.

As for ratings, I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
