drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA
1112 tasting notes

I drank this at work yesterday and really enjoyed it.. but it came with some bad thoughts. Here’s my dilemma… the world of loose leaf seems to be quite simple if you stick with a large company like David’s Tea because there are always seasonal flavors, multiple levels of quality, and consistency. Sometimes, not often though, I want to be lazy and give into these larger companies because they do have access to all the pretty looking tins and interesting flavors. However, I find beauty in having a relation with the person who makes the product I purchase. One of the best feels ever is having someone cook for you, write a personal song for you, draw a picture for you… so what about a tea for the voices?
David’s Tea is hella good, I can’t even lie… their selection is great, they have good prices, and people have so many pounds of it that it makes its way around.
Now it’s time for me to deduce the effects of emotions and the consumer when it comes to large corporations and small companies; from emotions we must conclude that logic plays an important part due to the concept of an economy that revolves around fiat money though… thoughts and thoughts.

Anyways, this is crisp, refreshing, and while I still dislike black tea, this was nice :)

I like buying from small vendors too. I have quite a few Davids Tea in my stash tho. ;)

I like small vendors and I like the idea of supporting direct sourcing but I still shop with Harney & Sons. :)

I agree. I always look forward to chatting with the owners of Carytown Teas here in RVA. They have helped me quite a bit along the way on my tea journey. It was during one of our conversations that we discussed a blend that I had created at home. Now they offer my Virginia Breakfast tea blend – Blended by them of course! It is my one tiny claim to tea fame. :) They’ve also scored me some nice little samples. It’s often a very good thing to be a faithful customer at a small tea shop! And like you, Nicole, I still shop with good old Harney too.
