Sinfully Delicious!

Well I found another ‘dessert’ tea that I will be hoarding and consuming as if it were a necessity of life! Even more so since it doesn’t contain the calories of the real deal.

Dry this tea is colorful to the eyes and smells great under the nose, the most powerful smell I could pick out was the chocolate and sprinkles, you know its a good tea when it has sprinkles! Brewing the tea does have a slight baked goods aroma to it, was very pleasing and made it hard to control myself from drinking it before it was ready.

The final brew is quite red from all the sprinkles, it has a cake like smell to it, but at this point the tea has settled into the aroma. The flavor is great, not a dead on accurate RVC flavor but it sure hits the mark pretty good for a tea. Highly recommend this one to any of the ‘dessert’ tea lovers, just wash your items out promptly after this tea the chocolate and sprinkles leave a lot of residue.

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?
