1) First impression: it smells sugary sweet, almost like dried fruit. There’s a bit of “old” in there too, but probably because we’ve had this tea for an age. Nice color.
2) First taste: Hmm. I definitely taste the artificial apricot. It’s not altogether unpleasant, but not like having actually fruit pieces. It’s also a bit dusty. Maybe this was a bad idea.
3) Second taste: Okay, so it’s kind of like a piece of apricot you dehydrated fell behind the toaster oven a got a bit dusty. Like, it still tastes like apricot: the peel, the flesh, the sweetness…but there’s also…like dirt on it. Ugh, bag teas are the worst.
4) Final thought: Don’t get me wrong, I don’t drink bags unless they’re a gift or they are free, but I still won’t be drinking anymore of this. Maybe I can pawn it off on someone who actually drinks decaf. What’s the point of decaf tea anyway?

Travelling the world, one sip at a time.

A guide to my brewing:
At home and on the go, I typically infuse in a DavidsTea Travel Mug (16 oz) or use DavidsTea drawstring filters. I’m hoping to use home infusers and proper teapots soon (especially since I got a new kettle).

A guide to my ratings:
0-19 – Didn’t like the tea/would tell others to avoid.
20-40 – Didn’t like the tea, but would not avoid it.
41-60 – On the fence about the tea. Might try again.
61-70 – Would drink again, but wouldn’t stock it.
71-80 – Will try again and might recommend.
81-90 – A good tea. Would recommend and stock.
91-100 – A favorite/perfect tea. Highly recommend..
What I’m looking for: advice on infusers, teapots, and recommendations on teas I’ve never tried. Hoping to study new teas to me: whites, floral & food infusions, flowering, cake pu’erh, guayusa, honeybush, yerba maté. Basically not your basic black (my comfort zone).
About my Cupboard:
I’m using the cupboard to keep note of my current tea stock and add to it accordingly when shopping or tasting. If I added every tea I’ve ever had to my cupboard it wouldn’t be an honest representation of me as a tea drinker.
