Tried this in store. I love our local DT. The associates all recognise us, call us by name, almost know our tea stash by its name (Stashy, Devourer of Worlds), etc. I just wish they wore nametags so we could stop calling them Really Hipster Girl, Less Hipster Girl, That Nice One, Hipster Asian Boy, Hipster White Boy, and the manager.

Anyway.

I liked this tea to start, very sweet and spicy, but there was a cloying aftertaste that snuck up on me and stuck in the back of my throat. Actually made me a little ill. I think it might be the stevia? I’m not sure. Anyway, won’t be repeating the experience.

I don’t like stevia at all… bluh

Such apt descriptions for probably employees at all DTs!

I’d say it was the stevia, for sure. I use stevia a lot in baking but have to be careful with it, and hate it in tea. It leaves a very odd aftertaste and sensation.

Mmmm. Tea. I have become a believer.

I like oolongs and greens, and dark smoky flavours. And Earl Greys. All the Earl Greys. I have bent my nerd powers to learning as much as I can about tea and tea culture. I have started to ramble about tea.

Tea. Mmmm.
