Trying this one again, I so want to love it. But I just can’t. I started with my usual 1 tsp of sugar. I took one sip and had to add another tsp and a dollop of soy milk. I haven’t added milk to my tea in months. I only let it steep two minutes. I guess it’s just stronger than I care for. I love the cream…I could do without the Earl Grey.

I don’t know how many tsp this particular DAVIDsTEA suggests, but I find that most of their teas only need 1 tsp. I was not crazy about Glittler and Gold, but I am sure that if I just had a tsp of tea it would be so much more enjoyable?

Erin, I was just thinking of that today, that some of DAVIDsTEA teas are awesomely strong, but might be okay with just 1 tsp instead. :) If you try it with any of DAVIDsTEA, let us know how it turns out!

bergamot… not my fave flavour either! I can’t find one to love

(unless it’s very light bergamot)

It is a tough one to like, I find they all smell like that mould grass concocotion I used to make as a kid… Yet my bother loves this double bergamont blend he got from somewhere… ewwww! Bergamont and deejarlings are both tough sells for me.

mold, yes I get that as well!! good to know I’m not the only one

Oh, I never use more than 1 tsp of leaf per perfect mug for any tea. I think it is the bergamot, though. It just…blegh. Oh well, at least I know this tea won’t go to waste, the wife lives for all things Earl Grey. I think I just need to find a really good vanilla black.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
