I love dessert teas and I love black tea. This one sounded promising and it delivered.
Lots of nice dried berries and bits of toffee in the leaf. The first time I brewed this it was a tad bitter, but I realized it was from using too much leaf and oversteeping. The second time I made it, it was perfection. This one really develops as it cools a little. The strawberry flavor comes out and the sweetness from the toffee is present. I added agave nectar because you can’t very well drink a dessert tea unsweetened (well I mean lots of people probably can, but I can’t). I really enjoy this one and am glad I have a bag, even if its only 25g.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

I don’t drink tea every day, but I do love tea and trying out different flavours. My favorite is black tea, followed by white and mate teas. I enjoy rooibos and oolongs, but haven’t tried enough of them yet to determine how much I like them compared to other types. I don’t like straight green tea, but if it has a good flavour added to it I can enjoy it quite a lot.
Mostly I drink DavidsTea since its Canadian and they tend to have stronger teas and more interesting flavors than other places I’ve tried. I don’t care for what I’ve tried from Teavana for the most part; their teas seem weak and overpriced in general as far as I can tell. The exception is My Morning Mate, which is incredible.
My city has not a single specialty tea shop, so DavidsTea online ordering is my friend. I highly recommend their Perfect Mug. It really is perfect. Nice thin lip, large hand, larger than average mug without being too big, and I have it in clear so I can see the beautiful colours of my teas as they steep. The strainer that comes with it is my favorite because it doesn’t let any tea through, and its metal and dishwasher safe. Love it.
