Midsummer Night’s Dream was my first venture into the non-caffeinated tea’s and herbal infusions. It is a sweet and citrus blend of magnificence, certainly something worthy of a Shakespearean name.

Dry this infusion looks almost like a potpourri, and the wonderful citrus scent is certainly not helping it! The one thing that will catch your eye for sure is the whole gooseberries, that is if you can stop yourself from smelling it.

Brewed this infusion has a strong citrus scent and a lovely yellow colour. It is perfect by itself, but again one or two tsp. of sugar will really set it off. This tea also makes for an extremely enjoyable iced beverage as well.

If you like citrus herbal infusions or a on the no caffeine kick then this tea should already be sitting in your cupboard!

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?
