Sipdown! I used the last of my sample to make my morning cup of tea. I remember being underwhelmed by this tea the first time I had it. The aroma of the dry leaves was very thick and sweet, as was the brewed tea. The taste, however, lacked that sweetness. Truthfully, it fell flat for me. I expected a much bolder flavor based on thd smell and was disappointed with what I got.

I didn’t really go back to this tea after the first cup. … Okay. I may have gotten bored and mixed some with my Coffee Pu’erh because rum+coffee = awesome and gotten a really bad result.

Anyway. The leaves still smell sweet and the brewed tea smells like a butter rum LifeSaver candy! Yum! The taste, however, is still meh. It doesn’t taste like anything to me. Hot water, a little sugar, no flavor. Maybe I didn’t use enough leaves, but this is one tea I won’t be restocking.

I became interested in tea spring 2013, when some friends of mine brought me to a local tea shop. I’ve been experimenting since, and am absolutely in love! I am especially fond of blended teas, and I’m a sucker for gimicky flavors.

My cupboard is stocked with a lot of DAVIDsTEA at the present, although I do have a few teas from some local shops. I’m looking forward to branching out and trying teas from different vendors and shops. Let the journey begin!
