Black Tea, Mate and Guarana Seeds, are you tweaking yet? This tea may actually be considered a controlled substance in some places due to the amount of stimulant in it…ok well it might not be illegal but its potent!

Dry this tea looks like it could be used as a spice or a seasoning on some kind of steak its loaded with a little bit of everything. It has a strong but please aroma on the nose, even the smell is a potent pick me up. Steeping this tea gives off the same aroma, there isn’t too much with the tea leaves themselves to see open up or anything.

The final brew from is a dark and potent one, the aroma doesn’t seem to change much unless adding milk or sweeteners to this tea. I enjoyed it personally with two teaspoons of sugar and no milk. It has a great stimulant kick to it that makes it perfect for those mornings where you are dragging your feet or those nights were you want or have to be up late.

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?
