Pass the Kombucha, man!

This tea for the longest time had me slightly concerned, and it really wasn’t the tea’s fault it was mine for knowing what Kombucha is. If you don’t know Kombucha is a culutre that grows on tea of all things, it is comparable to a mushroom like fungus, thus my worry when I read Kombucha in the title, but man was I ever wrong!

Dry this tea has a nice citrus aroma to it, the mango really had a presence to my nose, it was very appealing. The tea has a few nice bits of color mixed in with the oolong leaves. Steeping the citrus aroma becomes stronger and more pleasing, at this point the tea had me slightly salivating, a good citrus (or chocolate) tea is a weakness of mine.

The final brew is a nice golden color and has a great citrus aroma, the flavor is light but very tasty, one sip and all my concerns of Kombucha were dissolved. It’s the second oolong I have had, the other being Vanilla Orchid, I personally like this one a bit more. This is a must try for citrus and oolong fans.

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?
