This is my third David’s Teasane, oops meant David’s tea.
As I had difficulty to taste the tea base with this brand, I decided to sacrifice the whole generous sample kindly given by Darby for only one cup (4 ts)

I mentioned there was still few tea leaves in this blend so decided to cure this by having an heavy blend.

So, verdict…hummmm ! …can mean yummy , mmmmmmm or meah but really meah. Here you already guessed it’s hummm like meeeaaaaahhhhhh.

To me it’s definitively not a tea, I cannot taste the tea base. I am just drinking a warm tisane.

I get the nuts very distinctly + something which probably can be strawberry
This is sweet ,a nice tisane but the problem is this rating is supposed to be for a tea.

This is probably a fantastic iced beverage

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 0 sec

This was not good hot, but putting the “leaves” in water overnight made a much better drink. Not good enough to ever want it again, though.

I had issues with this one too; I thought it was just me. I even tried it iced and it was a no-go. I giggled at your “tisane” comment – it’s true! Or at least it feels that way!

Wow, we got the same opinion from this tea!

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
