Prebagged impulse by at the David’s store.

Hum.

Interesting. Strong smell of coffee and chocolate. Brew is a little bit weak but I’ve been finding that David’s are better with more tea, so that might have something to do with it.

I don’t dislike it, but it’s not a huge favorite.

I’ve also been finding that using more tea is beter with David’s teas. I used to notice it at the end of a sample, when there’s more than usual left, but not enough to leave behind, so I would just dump it all in.

Yeah, definitely. I was in the store, and the guy was pitching the Perfect Spoon, which is ~2.5 tsp, I think. And he said one of those was good for a cup… which is about twice as much as I use per cup.

Shmiracles

i’m pretty sure the perfect spoon is 1.5 tsp. i use that for my mugs and q-teapots which are 12-14 oz. but maybe i’ll try using it for 8 oz and see how things change! hmmmm. interesting.

That’s what I thought the perfect spoon was, and that’s what Teavana’s perfect spoon is, but the guy in the store said 2.5. He might have been wrong though. No idea!
