I purchased the Steeper because I was sick of crap escaping from the old tea ball so it was time for an upgrade. I was in at Davids satisfying my horrible addiction for teas when I saw it sitting on their shelf, I quickly checked it out and was impressed. Then the girl behind the counter made me a tea and showed me exactly how it worked, I was sold when the tea in the cup was clean as a bell. The unique factor of it also helped push the sale, certainly worth it if you are brewing multiple cups a day. Only downside is it needs to be cleaned fast if you brew a potent tea otherwise it will really stick into the plastic, but this isn’t a design flaw from Davids just the power of Tea in general.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
