2 tsp in 500ml water. Brewed in my Breville 1 Touch for 3 mins.
Holy. Moly. This is delicious. A small touch of astringency which was quickly remedied with a dab of agave. I’m not used to drinking black tea this bare and I need to start doing it more often because damn, I am in flavour country.
I’ve tried two other black teas by 52teas (Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake and Coconut Cream Pie) and wasn’t impressed by the base, but maybe I must have been overstepping or maybe this blend uses a different tea base because I am in love.
Scrolly button thing isn’t working on my iPod but I give it a rating of 85. Yum!

Bio

I’m a queer lady in my late twenties who loves cats, comic books, travel, and photography. I fell in love with tea in late 2011. My “tea corner” is now threatening to overthrow the kitchen! I’m the worst at writing so I’m sorry about the babbling messes my reviews will most likely be.

DAVIDsTEA was my first introduction to loose leaf tea and I’ve remained pretty loyal to them (especially since they’re a Canadian company so their shipping price isn’t ridiculous and delivery is speedy!) I’ve recently ventured into teas by 52teas, Della Terra Teas and the Metropolitan Tea Company.

The first teas I really enjoyed were dessert ones (and I still overloaded them with sugar, blech!). I still like them but now I’m trying to get into less-sugary teas. I loooooove me a good genmaicha and have a weakness for most oolongs.
