drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA
69 tasting notes

Well, 7 months later, I finally got to try this tea. I gave into my own laziness and bought a bunch of paper tea filters. I know it’s better to give tea the space to expand, but I find I’m usually too tired to clean out metal filters, and compromise with easy sachets.

Rarely do I neglect my lovely collection of looseleaf teas now! This being one of my favorite rooibos it’s perfect for a pre-bedtime cup. Malty and sweet, it reminds me David’s Oh, Canada! which I also previously preferred as a bedtime tea. Not as zesty or spiced, as I would have thought, which is a welcome surprise.

Flavors: Ginger, Honey, Maple

200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

“The heaven of modern humanity is indeed shattered in the Cyclopean struggle for wealth and power. The world is groping in the shadow of egotism and vulgarity. Knowledge is bought through a bad conscience, benevolence practised for the sake of utility. The East and West, like two dragons tossed in a sea of ferment, in vain strive to regain the jewel of life…Meanwhile, let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.” – Kakuzo Okakura, “The Book of Tea”

I am happiest at a tea room, or snuggled up at home with a freshly brewed cup.
