I ordered this tea along with some of the Irish Breakfast tea. The Original is great for an everyday breakfast tea. It’s got a warm, smooth flavour and can be diluted by using only one bag or made stronger by using two bags. With one tea bag being enough to fill an entire large teapot, I find that I got a lot of bang for my buck and that the tea will last me a long time. I definitely recommend this tea and will buy it again when I run out.

I first saw the name on it and since Thompson is my surname, I just had to order some of this tea. I saw a review of the tea on Steepster and decided to place an order. I love drinking black tea for breakfast, but I can be very picky on which ones I’ll keep buying. I placed an order and got two boxes of the Irish Breakfast. One tea bag is enough for a full large pot of tea, so I find that I got a lot of bang for my buck. The tea will last a long time since I’m using only one bag per day. The tea has a lovely mellow smooth flavour. I enjoy it a lot and will definitely keep buying this one. That says a lot, because I don’t often have favourites. I highly recommend this tea if you’re looking for a great daily breakfast tea.

I was intrigued by the thought of ground black tea, so I ordered it. I’ve been making it for lattes only and I love it. It’s quite easy to add something else for flavouring like rose water, but I like it just as well without. When I make a latte it has a nice smooth taste. I expected it to taste unusually strong, but it didn’t. I will order this tea again.

drank Persimmon by Royal Tea Bay Co. Ltd.
14 tasting notes

Royal Tea Bay is one of my favourite eBay tea stores, so I was poking around and noticed the persimmon leaf tea. It intrigued me, because I’ve had goji leaf tea before and really like it. I wondered if it was similar. Since I drink so much tea, I’m always looking for caffeine-free teas and if they are beneficial to health, then all the better. The persimmon leaf tea has huge leaves and I had to break them up to get them into my infuser. The dry leaves didn’t have a very strong smell, so I steeped for five minutes to try and get as much taste and aroma as possible. The brewed tea has a mild aroma and light colour. It had a slight peppery taste to it and was vegetal. I found the tea mild, but I’m not sure if it’s because I didn’t use enough of the leaves for steeping. I’ll try using more next time.

I’ve had this one. It’s not great, but not horrible either.

Vanilla Rooibos from the Bulk Barn is my all time favourite vanilla rooibos tea. I’m addicted to it and have it almost every day. It makes great caffeine free lattes. The price is so reasonable that I usually buy tons of it to stock up on it whenever I go to the Bulk Barn.

I found this oil quite versatile. I used it for cooking, salad dressings, and when making my own nut butters. I ran out of it and miss it, so I’m going to order more. It has a very light taste when used on its own as a salad oil.

drank Goji Pop by DAVIDsTEA
14 tasting notes

This one is great iced. I have a daughter and I’m one of those moms that tries with all my might to limit junk, sugar and all that kind of stuff. I like Goji Pop because it’s healthy and my daughter can drink all she wants. It’s very refreshing iced and tastes like gummy bears. My daughter will ask me for more “gummy bear” tea when she’s thirsty. I enjoy this tea hot and cold. I had a cold and put some honey in some hot Goji Pop tea and I found it very soothing on my throat.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

I live in Victoria, BC. I’m a tea-aholic and have been since I was 9. I discovered David’s Tea a couple of years ago and went crazy for all kinds of loose teas. I’ve been an addict ever since and if I’m not drinking tea, I’m reading about it or trying it in different recipes. I’m so glad I found Steepster!
