drank David's Darjeeling by DAVIDsTEA
1409 tasting notes

Lately I’ve been drinking either new teas, or try to get rid of teas. Time for an “older” tea that I actually enjoy.

Yep! Still smooth and tasty like I remember! I’ll have to try it next to my DavidsTea Darjeeling second flush just to see which will end up on my permanent shelf.

I’ve been cleaning out my cupboard lately, too. Couldn’t fit all the new stuff in there so I got rid of a bunch of things I hated or that were probably stale. :D

That’s a pretty good idea! I may see that some of my bagged stuff gets misplaced in the garbage, but I just feel bad throwing stuff out.

Were you happy with your Murchie’s order? I like my Prince Charles blend, and the Library Blend, but DNW the Ceylon Best, Darjeeling or Earl Grey. They range from drinkable to OK but with so much AWESOME out there, it’s almost like why bother?

I reorganized all my stuff into tins!!! Red is black tea, the green/white one is herbal/rooibos/honeybush and the little Dr. Seuss box is green/oolong/white tea! I have some in a cupboard but those are the ones I want to just disappear.

Heee!! I like it! Know what you mean about throwing stuff out but I’m pretty sure some of my bagged teas in flavours I hate, ie “cleanse” and anything with chamomile, etc have been around for YEARS and no one drinks them. So yeah. That or stick em in a bath, maybe?

I do like my Murchies teas – I got the Christmas one plus fruit-blacks, they’re all teas that I could make a pot of and just mainline through while making art or something, like excellent every day teas, I guess? I still haven’t tried the mango one yet, though.

Cavocorax

Yeah I should see if Lauren wants any of the ones first, then… POOF! :O Putting them in the bath is a great idea too!

Good to hear you like your Murchie’s teas. Must be that I just don’t like their straight blacks as much – they just taste so bitter to me and it doesn’t matter if I steep it for 3 minutes or 1. Maybe I got a bad batch, or it’s just not my thing. IDK. I’d re-order the other two, and snag the Christmas blend so I’m not against the entire company or anything.

Ozli

Maybe I just like my tea bitter-er than you? Idk, they don’t taste bitter to me though.. hehehe maybe, MAYBE, that is proof?? I’m sending you a BUNCH of Xmas blend, don’t forget!!

Cavocorax

Oooh Xmas blend!!! Maybe I’ll stuff some of the Murchie’s ones in my envelope to you so you can see what you think. :P (Also, less for me to drink – bwa ahahahah). They are ok with milk and sugar – I just like drinking my blacks plain now so I can taste the actual tea!

Ozli

Sounds good to me!! >:D

Cavocorax

Excellent. Will ship it this week! :)

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
