So I have two empty tins now, and while I ran off to DavidsTea TODAY, they are still empty. (And smelly. Am working on that.) Guess I’ll just fill them up with peppermint or something I have 2 oz of just to make room in my storage tins for smaller packs.

Grabbed this, and four other samples today that I had flagged to try. I guess, ideally, I’d like 30g of all the tea from David’s that I like. :) That’s enough to cover every craving I might have without being too overwhelming! But not enough to fill a tin. I think Mother’s Little Helper, Cocomint Cream and Pumpkin Chai are my only DT tin-worthy teas…

This is an oddball. It smells very strong and malty. Dark. Earthy. A few honeyed notes? Definitely. More honey, as it cools, but now it’s a bit grassy.

It’s definitely better as it cools. It reminds me of the Keemun from DT. I’m enjoying it, but am hesitant about rating it yet.

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)
