I had high hopes for this tea when I brewed this in the early hours of the morning. But it didn’t keep with me. There was no feeling of sitting at a campfire warming myself, no sticks with a small marshmallow melting at the end and no smell of summer creeping into my head.

I found this to be very bland for how delicious it smelled and tantalized me. I even added a tiny bit of sugar, hoping to bring out a flavor but none came. I found this very typical of black teas I had high hopes of from DAVIDs… they smell like heaven but when it comes down to the tasting, there is nothing that sparks any love from me. It tastes like cold coffee to me, there’s a hint of bitterness at the back of my throat but other than that… there’s no love from me, sadly.

Boiling 5 min, 45 sec

I’m 24 years old and female. I used to be in university as a History Major but I gave it up to be a Laboratory Technician at a coal mine. My days are long and switch to nights many a time but I always bring 3 bags of tea with me to enjoy and have fun with.

When I’m not breaking my back over coal I spend my time in my room with my two cats playing video games until the sun comes up and watching a variety of movies, most of which are Disney or are animated in some way.

When it comes to tea, I have a fierce loyalty to DAVIDsTEA as they treated me right and garnered my respect. For the most part I am focusing on them but I take other Canadian Tea companies into mind and hopefully can expand my cupboard with them.

I currently have no tea rating guides but if I indicate I bought a Tin or will store a Tin constantly on my shelf, it usually means I will be hopelessly devoted to it.

My other interests include collection Starbucks cups, listening to Deadmau5, and watching far too many BBC shows.
