Ummm I tried this once, maybe twice, and was not impressed… so I sent it home with Mum this weekend – she loves green teas and this one will make her very-very happy.

I had the last of this at work last week and I will be looking around at the tea shops in town to see if anyone has a Dan Cong to compare with this one.

I went through that 10g sample far too fast! I gotta get me more of this, and I gotta have LOTS of this on hand!!

I made a 4C pot out of the last of this sample and shared with the hubby. I really have not completed the learning process for my tea pot… I might have to go back to a botum to make tea, because tea never seems to steep properly in my tea pot… Maybe it is the basket?

Anyway…

I will have to race out and buy more of this tea… A.S.A.P!!

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
232 tasting notes

1 “perfect scoop” (1.5tsp)
1 16oz mug
1 cinnamon honey stick
16oz of hot water….

Oh… Oh… Starbucks, eat your heart out! THIS IS pumpkin chai! I am glad I gave this tea another chance. That first sip of a sample must have not been made well. (It happens I have had bad tea days)

I think the biggest issue is that DAVIDs Black teas have a suggested leaf measurement that is too much. 1.5tsp to a meagre 8oz cup is over kill; for me.

Will I buy a full tin of this one? sip-sip, oh yes!

I steep almost all of my DT teas with one perfect teaspoon per pot. Our pot is 2 cups, each 12 oz, I belive. It’s almost always strong enough and will still do a re-steep. Makes up for the cost. : )

I use the recommended amount of tea but I use a lot more water than they say also. Like over double.
Glad you gave this one another try.

I sipped the take-away tea that Danielle made for my Mom today and, wow! Though it is not my favourite “neat”; I can see that Danielle is correct when she said: “A little milk goes a long way to helping this tea taste great”

Oh wow! Not only does this tea smell as decadent as a hug from my Hubby, but it tastes great too!

This is one I will be purchasing a full tin of (once I have an empty tin to put it in) It’s great as a latte too! I just need a proper milk frothier!!

I can’t type, I am sipping my second cup and it is chasing away the chills! Mmmmm!!

I’m absolutely devastated that this one is going away forever soon!!!!

This steep was more successful than the first one I did at my mothers house. Maybe it is the mug? Everything tastes better in my over sized Starbucks Whistler Mug! (I guess I am those people who require their serving sizes to be 16oz and incredibly weak.

I breath in strawberries and lemons and something else, this tea would kick A$$ iced! because as it cools it is becoming eerily more and more refreshing.

Profile

Bio

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?
