I never knew tea could taste as good as this tea. The fancy tea, from Davids Tea*, comes loose--meaning not inside bags. This, during my childhood, was regarded as "messy" and "too much work," but Davids Tea makes these little drawstring pouches--tea bags--that you fill yourself with the loose tea. You do this with a special spoon. I love the fancy tea-scooping spoon. Then, you pull on the string and it closes the pouch. You have a tea bag.
This is a life-changing innovation.
Not only that, tea tastes so much better when it isn't as highly processed, that I have gone from maybe a cup a week to drinking at least two cups a day. Its a good thing most of the tea Jen gave me has little to no caffeine. If it had been highly caffeinated, I would have stroked out by now.
When I realized it was time to restock, I knew I couldn't go back to the wimpy commercial tea bags, so I went to Davids Tea and placed my order.
I decided to get my childhood favorites--Orange Pekoe and Earl Grey--as well as two fun teas. I went with Chocolate Rocket and Organic Blueberry Jam. Chocolate Rocket came in my birthday present. It is delicious. Blueberry Jam just sounds amazing, so I had to try some.
It is possible that I bought too much tea. I refuse to believe this.
Have you tried Davids Tea? Do you have a favorite? Let me know in the comments so I know what to try next!
* No, Davids Tea did not call me up and give me free tea, but if they did, I would not turn them down. I actually spent all of my money on tea. That's normal, right? As per usual, all the opinions here are my own. (Unless you share them, in which case they're ours.)
