drank Detox by DAVIDsTEA
709 tasting notes

Over time, this has gone from my favourite and first beloved loose tea to one that I turn to only in times of illness. I developed another summer cold after a marathon hospital visit to see my grandfather (now released and doing well, yay!) and the beau thought Detox might help. Now, to be fair, I was in a terrible mood when I drank this because I was sick again and absolutely tired of it, not to mention achey and sore. Anyway, I somehow mis-brewed this and didn’t end up with my usual potent juniper lemon mix. Instead I had a watered down mess. Drinkable and totally my fault, but saddening nonetheless. I still really enjoy this tea but I think that in my never-ending quest for more tea I might not refill this tin the next time it empties. I think we’ve had a solid 300 grams so far, my Detox friend. Thank you for that!

I’ve been drinking loose tea since 2010 and my tastes have changed a lot over those years. For the last few, I’ve been a fan of unflavoured Chinese blacks and shu puerh. I still drink other things, but that’s where I am.

I live in a rural area with my husband, cat, and soon to be firstborn. I love tea, reading, doctor who, knitting, crosswords, board games, the marvel universe, and lots of other things.

I’m not often rating teas numerically any more but I want to leave this to explain my past ratings:
I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
