I finally got a chance to try something from DavidsTea, but...erm. Eh. This is not my cup of tea. More like the spice is wrong, and the price is wrong too.

I opened the bag, and the dry leaf smells just like cinnamon, if I really concentrate, I get a hint of orange, nothing else...completely overpowering any smell of the tea itself.

Thankfully, when brewing, it comes out a bit more balanced, but the cinnamon and orange still dominate. This blend is very sweet, almost as sweet as blends containing stevia...probably from the cinnamon.

I did not finish this. Not that it's low quality, I just don't like the flavor and aroma.

I look forward to trying more from DavidsTea...I didn't like this one at all but I'm open to trying stuff that I like a lot more.

Some of their stuff is pretty good.

You gotta admit, though, the name for this tea is pretty awesome. :)

Haha...yeah! It takes me back. When I was a kid, I actually used to watch the original Price is Right. It's funny, because one thing that I've come to love in life, is thinking critically about the price and value of different items. I think I've gotten rather good at it too...so it's something I can relate to on a deep level as well.

I watched it, too.

Here's a fun fact: My mom was on the Price is Right back in the 70's. I was just a baby and we lived in Cali. She made it to the front row for the bidding, but didn't get on stage!

Wow, that's random and pretty cool.
