Backlogged from this morning.

This is from a tiny sample packet I received with my actual order.
This one smells amazing, it smells like a rich hot chocolate! However I was disappointed with the taste, it seemed very weak. Perhaps I messed it up, but I followed the instructions: 1.5 t per 8 oz at 208F. It said to steep it 5-7 minutes and 7 minutes seems a tad long for any tea, so I went with 5 minutes, next time I’ll steep it 7 minutes. It was so weak that I tried adding sugar and milk to it, but it didn’t really help. I have really high hopes for this one though and hope to make it better next time.

My experience or taste with DT is a little more tea and the full length of time works best. What the What do others think?

I brewed up the rest of it with less water (about 4 ounces instead of 8) and 7 minutes, it still seemed kind of weak. I may buy some next time I order from them and play around with it, the smell won’t let me not buy more in the future!

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
