drank The Earl's Garden by DAVIDsTEA
1112 tasting notes

Another delicious tea from DAVIDsTEA! I did my homework and read some comments about this tea’s propensity for bitterness so I steeped it for 3 minutes and added a little demerara sugar. LOVE! Think Paris but with black currant predominant instead of berry (this has berry too, but it’s not the first thing I taste). Not bergamot-y but it’s in there somewhere like Paris, too.

A fine addition to my fruity blacks. We are having the most miserable rainy Monday, and this is bringing a smile to my face!

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
