drank Black Needles by DAVIDsTEA
3 tasting notes

What’s the worst day of your life?….this tea is the complete opposite of that. This gorgeous deceitfully mellow black tea is so smooth. It is earthy but just barely it blends in so smoothly with a slight hint of honey along with the richness of black tea. Do not over steep this sucker you’ll lose those lovely notes of honey. Sadly discontinued Black Needles is the best addiction involving needles you will ever have.

Bio

I was never much of a coffee man but then I got a job at a tea store and while I drank an occasional cup here and there I never had loose leaf and the rest I guess you could say is history. I love all types flavored and traditional. I never steep more the recommended time becuase I feel it is a tragedy when they taste bitter because the water was too hot or the leaves are over steeped. I make exceptions with tisanes and roobios becuase I find they never bitter. Aside from tea I love music,film, history, politics and psychology. I also like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.
