Thank you to BTVSGal for this one. The dry leaf has a pleasant aroma almost like Russian tea that you make at Christmas. For there being so much in this I’m a little disappointing in the flavor. I can make out a little of the apple and lemongrass. There claims to be cardamom, cloves, black pepper, cinnamon, and ginger, which should provide for a nice chai like taste but I’m not getting that. To be honest it kinda tastes like a cheap Celestial seasonings herbal blend. It’s pleasant but not invigorating and energizing to my senses. This one is just alright.

I almost thought I liked this tea after the first few sips. I hate ginger and pineapple, but they blended well with the other ingredients. . .at first. The initial taste is best described as a comforting medicinal, somewhat reminiscent of the bagged teas that I remember my father drinking a lot of in the past.

All the nasty for me is in the aftertaste (yuck! Ginger :p). The worst thing ever is a nasty flavor that lingers. Oh well. I’m sure someone in my family will be happy to finish this sizable sample that I got from DianeInOz)

4 tsp. @ 208º in 20 oz. teapot for 7 minutes. This tea offers a mild pick me up and, although I don’t know if it really does this or if I think it does because the package says so, I do feel more focused when I drink this tea. This is a good thing, because this tea is my second pot of fuel for my paper writing today.

Ginseng Shminseng this tasted ok but I don’t feel any smarter, wiser or better looking.

The Rooibos is almost drowned by all the other ingredients in the tea. The spices leave a slight tingly sensation and great after taste. Have you ever opened up a package of loose leaf tea and thought, “Wow, what a weird concoction!” So I went to go look up the ingredients and here is what I found: Red Rooibos, apple bits, cinnamon, ginseng root, bean peels, ginger bits, mistletoe, St. John’s Wort, lemongrass, field eryngo, cardamom, clove, black pepper and lemon peel. Not to mention it has a very unique smell. Not bad, mind you, just very unique.

Still not a favorite, but so much better than the Tulsi Dosha Chai. And easier to drink for me than Sleep Tight from TeaGschwed…whatever because not savory.

I smelled orange again and I even sort of taste orange, which is fascinating given that there isn’t any orange in this, but I’ll take it.

Time to go lie down with a mug next to me and zone out to whatever’s been Tivo’d and I haven’t yet watched.

BTW, you guys who went to the David’s Tea spring sale are really making my fingers itch in a big way. Mason jar! Whale mug! Tentacles! (And I’d even get the whale and the tentacles despite being hand wash only just because they’re so adorable…) I have to get offline before I find myself whipping out the credit card…. bye!

Their teaware is dangerous, indeed!

I’m honestly grateful there aren’t any David’s Tea shops here because I have no space and no money for any more teaware. I own like 4 mugs (not incuding the little 4oz. Roger Delgado mug that has a special place of honour on my Doctor Who Living Room Shrine Of Awesome) and can’t justify more as long as I live alone :(

I know. I just had to put a bunch of old travel mugs out to pasture to make room for some newer stuff. I went through so many different types of travel mugs, most of which had a lot of small parts I managed to lose the parts to, or couldn’t remember which went with which. Fortunately most of those weren’t containers I really liked and wouldn’t have used much anyway. I have some mugs I really should get rid of because they’re chipped, but they were given to me by various people and it’s hard to part with the sentimental stuff. If I gave away all my chipped mugs I might be able to justify a couple of the new David’s ones….

Im not feeling this one at all. Seems quite weak. Maybe I’ll try it again-maybe not. I even made it a little stronger than suggested. (I usually do ).

This has a bite – but I like it. Seemed a bit weak on the actual flavor side, but I feel like I need to try it again.
