I just got my Adagio package...and I DID BUY THE TARDIS BLEND! I completely forgot! I have ten teas to try now. And they all smell sooooo good!



There are 9 other teas, too - blood orange, irish breakfast, earl grey decaff, berry blues, sour apple, earl grey moonlight, earl grey bravo, raspberry patch, and cha cha.

We have so many teas that I don't think I could even begin to list them. There's hibiscus iced tea in the fridge right now.

I go through a LOT of iced tea -- way more than I'm willing (or able) to spend for high end tea, and Luzianne's the only one I'll use. I love their Creole blend coffee, too. I really like it better than the Community.

It's not that it's the old, traditional flavor. They usually put in real oil from the bergemont fruit. I don't know what or why this has artificial flavor. Other brands that I looked at show natural flavoring. I think David's did when I looked.

That's one they import from Germany, rather than one of their own blends. I don't usually do flavored teas, Dober, as long as I'm getting good tea. I think the one Earl Grey I did order from them was the Earl Grey Supreme, which uses just natural flavorings.

Probably my favorites among their blends are the River Shannon and the Russian Caravan.

I'm another that buys from David Teas. Mainly cause I prefer tins to the bags other places give, and it's like, a block from my work!

I don't usually do flavored teas either. Just that one. lol. Or...if it's black tea with some extra hint of something like orange or cloves, I like it. But the pure herbal teas with no black tea...nah, not usually.

Jess...I like those tins too. They'd make nice gifts too.

Upton offers many of their teas in tins. I've got a stack of them, so I can go with the packets most of the time -- saves on shipping.

Yes, it would save that way. And you can get tins in local places that are pretty cheap, like dollar stores and such. Or glass mason jars are nice too.

So long as you keep them in a dark cupboard. Light can damage teas. They do make UV-blocking clear containers for teas. Glass does block some UV radiation naturally, but not all of it.
