A wishful blend of intrigue and taste.

I really don’t know what to say about this blend, it smell great but when you steep it, it has a different aroma and then when you finally drink it the taste is totally different then what you may expect, well at least that is how it went for me.

Dry this tea has tons of color being a mix of green and black tea’s and then there is jasmine and rose hips it will remind you of the jars of potpourri your parents had. It has a very similar aroma of Buddha’s Blend but with a floral addition, from the rose hips. Steeped it mostly has a rose aroma to it.

The final brew is a bit darker then a green tea but lighter then a black tea, it has a peachy rose taste to it. I found it to be a bit tart without sweetener; however with some raw sugar added it took on a nice flavor. As suggested by the packaging I will have to try this one iced as well. Overall I certainly would drink it again but I don’t know yet if it is a tea I would keep a bunch of on hand.

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?
