drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
1681 tasting notes

Backlog: I’m done with this one. It was an interesting experiment, but it was also so damn difficult to make this one pop they way I’d like.

Rosehips

Yes! My assessment exactly.

VariaTEA

I tried this and it was not very good so I gave up trying and gave it away. Any tea you really need to work at to be tasty is not worth repurchasing IMHO.

Cavocorax

I agree! I’m not a fan of fussy teas. The payoff had better be phenomenal.

Roswell Strange

I had issues with this one at first because it is finicky – but I’ve figured out that it’s much better with a short steep time (like, three minutes), at least imho. Don’t know if you’ve both tried that, but maybe food (or tea) for thought?

Cavocorax

I did, but the results just weren’t consistent for me.
No biggie. I had 30g to play with, and now I can move on to the next tea!

Amariel

Hmmm, I might need to play with my sample some more.

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)
