Here fishy fishy fishy!

I swear I felt like Ernie sitting in his boat when I smelled this one brewed. I’d even tried rinsing before brewing, hoping that it would make a straight pu’erh drinkable for me. But nope. I did two sips and just couldn’t do anymore. Pu’erh is definitely not a type of tea I can do straight right now. I’ll revisit them later in my life but right now, they are definitely not for me.

I can’t stand the fishiness of David’s Pu’erhs. I put up with it, for lack of a better option at the moment… but I’ve noticed the other local tea vendors tend to have better quality options in this particular category. Once I’m allowed to buy more tea, I’ll be investing in some for myself! :P

Hmm, maybe I’ll give them one more chance, then. I DO like David’s Oh Christmas Treat so it isn’t a 100% ban from the collection.

Next time you are downtown, I’ll take you to Tea Dynasty… they have some serious tea there and the guy who runs the place will sit and talk for hours while he gives you free samples :P

Oooh, that sounds lovely! (Why do I foresee I doing massive tea trips? :D)

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
