Fruitacular!

So this was one of the tea’s I treated myself to for Christmas this year, and is also another one scratched off my list of online only tea’s for me. I made a pot of this first thing Christmas morning and practically everyone who tried it liked it with the exception of my sister who has never been big on anything related to fruit!

I don’t know if people brewing this one by the cup are having issues with the hibiscus or they just plain hate it but I haven’t noticed it to be overpowering in this blend at all. Dry it smells like candied mango to me and a bunch of other fruits but the mango stands out the most. The final brew is a dark red color and has a fruity and floral aroma to it that does in fact smell like paradise, but you wont be getting lost in it!

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?
