As a person who prefers straight teas, David’s is a good place to go when I want something flavored. I like this tea, it smells nice dry and steeped, I love the nuttiness, in fact it’s almost overpowering. I can’t say that the fruits that are part of the ingredients show their true colors in this tea. Any time I drink David’s flavored teas I can’t help but guess which part of the mix is natural. It always tastes “cartoonish”, not like real ingredients would taste like. Not to blather, it’s a cool tea when you feel like liquid candy, but it’s almost not tea. I love the taste of tea and when additional components kill it that’s where the line gets drawn for me. It’s a tasty beverage, but it’s hardly a good green tea.

Bio

I was always a huge fan of teas but my tastes changed constantly. Lately I am on the path of discovering Chinese teas, but not limiting myself to that. I am, however, favoring straight teas at this point.

I love pu-erh, oolongs are always a treat, learning about greens is delicious, absolutely neutral towards rooibos or herbals and black is always a yes. Incidentally any combination of the above is ok in a blended tea, which I like to have time to time.

« The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh—oh the seventh cup—
if I drink you, a wind will hurry my wings
toward the sacred island. »
