This tea has now been left at work! it is just too easy to over steep, and too easily scortched when adding water and the horrible orange rind taste of this tea just just vomit inducing! I feel awful since it is a delightful smelling tea.

This looks like a blend just asking for trouble. Black and green teas have wildly different steeping times and water temps, and hibiscus can take over a tea so easily….blegh. Have you tried cold steeping it? Leave a tsp in an infuser or teaball in a mug of cool water in the fridge overnight? It would prevent scorching, but the hibiscus might enjoy the long soak too much. Anyway, it’s worth a try!

it’s just a write off for me, there is no tea left and there was no help from anyone at Teaopia about what to do with this tea… Oh Customer Service Where have you gone?

I think those of us who start our looseleaf tea journey with DavidsTea get spoiled and we just won’t put up with terrible customer service from anywhere else.

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
