My favorite variety is green tea, but I also enjoy pu’erh, oolong, white, herbal tisanes, rooibos, and certain flavored black teas.
I’ve dabbled with Teavana, Tazo, and Adagio. But DavidsTea is where my love of loose leaf started back in 2009, and their blends are still my favorites. They had a rough year in 2020, but I hope Davids can still bounce back.
In my head, I rate my teas on a 5-star system, so for Steepster I’ve devised the following system:
90 – 100 = “5 stars”
All time favorites and inspired blends
75 – 89 = “4 stars”
Quite enjoyable—would like a 2nd cup! Might order this tea for my cupboard
50 -74 = “3 stars”
Nothing about this tea stands out. It might be an odd or unbalance blend. One cup is enough to satisfy my curiosity.
25 – 49 = “2 stars”
Tolerable, but I definitely wouldn’t buy it again.
0 – 25 = “1 star”
Can’t even finish the first cup
