I’m pretty undecided about this one. Although I love chocolate and nut teas, I have been having issues with the chocolate in Davids Teas for at least a year, with them tasting weird…is it the alcohol taste others have mentioned? I am not sure. I definitely like this one better than Coffee Cake (belch!), but I am not sure I can call it a favourite of the collection either.

My initial steep was plain, with no milk or sugar. When I had it yesterday with milk as a latte, it was a little bland, so maybe a smidge of sugar would have helped a bit? I do have more to try. I’ve been trying to have more teas without sugar, but I feel some are better with some. That said, David’s Teas are now mostly sweet enough for me to have without sugar, which I am happy about. I have been cutting my sugar use gradually over the last few years and I was at a little bit of a plateau for a loooong time, so it is good to have progressed further, but I feel like when I do add sugar, I am regressing back to needing it sweeter. Still, progress is progress, and I am proud of myself for coming as far as I have. And I have to remind myself of this when I do choose to use sugar in my tea…I try to use less than I had been before, which makes me feel less guilty.

Anyway, I am still undecided on this and will leave it unrated for now.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are…

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty (except rose), and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

Yes, I do trades…usually on request though. See something you want to try in my cupboard? Just shoot me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Uh, guess that’s it.
