The Schnozberries taste like Schnozberries!

So lately I have been on a kick of trying all of DAVIDsTEA variants on the Earl Grey blend and for the most part I have been enjoying them; however when I hit Earl Grey Oolong my winning streak was broken. I don’t know exactly what it is about this tea but my tongue hates it. Personally I think its the overwhelming taste experience of the Schizandra berries, luckily I only picked up a 25g sampler as I was unsure of the tea by the smell as well. It is a great blend that I am sure other people will easily like; however I think the Schizandra berry is just not for me.

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?
