I just sorted it out and gonna drink it anyway, but could you (Mr. Davidson Tea) just pretend like you give a damn about what you put in the bag you sell, I'm sure MAPAQ representatives wouldn't be so kind.
And please, sort it out before infusing it, I almost prepared me a bird turd infusion,
Thanks for reading!
Today, August 16th , 2019, I opened the second bag of hibiscus flowers and when I was going to boil the flowers, I saw something in the shape of a pellet that looked like guinea pig poop floating on the boiling water with the leaves.
I scooped it all out and found the mass, I pressed it into a napkin and it broke and smells weird, some sort of a combo of poop and grass smell.
I am clearly grossed out, and I have a brand new bag of hibiscus flowers that I can't use, because I have no idea if the bag is contaminated by rodent poop or some sort of fertilizer.
I contacted the company and I am waiting for an answer from them. I will update my review with their answer.
PS: After reading the review with the plastic piece (not nice), feather (not nice) and seed pods (nice!), and the review with the dead beetle (wouldn't bother me - I'd rather buy organic with beetle than pesticides or GMO), I dumped the whole bag of hibiscus petals on a tray.
I am sad I only had one seed pod with three seeds - I planted them hehehe. I found a small piece of a peanut shell <10 cents. I am not allergic, but I am very concerned as so many people are, that this might get into some peanut-allergic hands. I love the whole petals, as then I at least see what I buy/get and they make a wonderful tea! Just what I wanted. However, peanut shells are really dangerous and that should not happen. I will buy again and I stand with my positive review, but some person with an allergy might want to stay away.
Darjeeling (Singell): I've had a lot of Darjeeling tea from various estates: first flush / second flush / "in between" flushes (etc.) since Darjeeling black is my favorite tea, and to my surprise this Darjeeling is also quite good especially for the price I paid ($20 CAD per pound) which is about 1/2 the price of the cheapest decent Darjeeling I'd found before this. I've bought this twice (a year apart) and have been happy both times with the product. The most recent time (Jan 2019) the tea was a bit "cleaner" tasting, less robust. A year prior when I bought it, the tea was closer to what I'd expect from a second flush. If you're very particular about Darjeeling, you probably have some things you already consider important about the flavor of the particular estate / which flush you're buying (arguably nitpicky things most people wouldn't even really understand) so you might consider this a bit of a guessing game. However I think it's fair to say this is a nice Darjeeling at a bargain price. I'd say even "nitpicky" Darjeeling drinkers could appreciate this and not just for the relatively low price.
Dragonwell Green: For the price I paid ($25 CAD per pound), my expectations were low. The Darjeeling suprised me though, so I was willing to take a chance despite some poor reviews of the Dragonwell. It's...ok. It tastes like decent Sencha with some Dragonwell flavor mixed in. The grassyness is a lot more apparent than in other Dragonwell teas I've bought and more in line with what I expect from Sencha. Some of the Dragonwell nuttiness is present though, but it's subtle. So for the price (and as "Dragonwell") it's a little disappointing, but I've never found good Dragonwell for this low a price, and it's still good tasting green tea at a reasonable price. I'd probably just recommend trying their Sencha instead for $6/pound less and if you want good Dragonwell, pay the higher price (elsewhere) that it requires. Their photo of Sencha actually looks fairly close to the Dragonwell that I bought.
English Breakfast: A very pleasant black tea blend, nicely balanced. For the price I paid ($15.55 CAD per pound) I'm quite happy. You can consider this to be a nice "normal" black tea blend, what most people would expect from a black tea (or "orange pekoe" tea) bought in a grocery store but considered "better" than those. Using 2.5g of tea per cup (what I use for strong black tea, similar to using 1 tea bag) means 181 servings at $15.55. So it's not the cheapest black tea, but it's still quite reasonably priced and worth it for the flavor.
I personally use it to make strawberry banana shake in the morning with collagen and scoop of Field of Greens (by brickhouse). Or manga pinapple shake.
Taste amazing. this green tea gives huge boost in energy that feels clean. where coffee makes me jittery. I get a constant energy boost for a whole work day. Very good mental focus.
I've also notice my apetite is reduced.
However after a couple glasses of tea, I ended up throwing it all in the garbage.
Upon inspection of the bag, I found what looked like rabbit feces (little pellets), moth larvae (lots of them!) and pieces of green plastic. So gross.
But hey it at least smelled good, right?
I won't be buying from this brand again. What a waste of money.
The quality of the tea is good, the leaves are long, full, not broken and the aroma is great.
I was looking for the CTC- small round granules-broken leaf version of Assam. But this is more like TGBOP- full leaf style. ( I could be mistaken)
It did arrive promptly and was packaged well, in a foil lined resealable bag,. The stand-up pouch is the ideal packaging for loose leaf tea,to prevent against light and moisture
Since its a large pack- ( good value for the money), best to take tea out in a small container and keep the big bag in a cool, dark place, to preserve the quality.
This tea is perhaps best to have as is, with little milk or black. Maybe even for Kombucha
I wanted to use it to make chai, but it does not stand up to the spices of chai, it is a
bit overpowering for it.
Lastly: I would Davidson's Tea Bulk, Organic Assam Banaspaty Estate Tea 1 Pound Bag the vendor to provide a pic. of the actual leaves ,
along with the product listing of the outside pack
This will help buyers make a more informed and better purchase.
There has been an outcry recently in Canadian media about microplastics in bagged tea, so you can rest slightly easier when purchasing loose-leaf tea. However, in my first bag of this, I did find a long plastic strand (approx. 1 inch) amongst the tea. I didn't take a photo as it didn't warrant enough concern for me, personally. Just be wary that plastic is pretty ubiquitous these days.
Additionally, it would be nice if the packaging for this was less plastic-y. The bag looks to be made of paper and then you open it to find a thick layer of plastic (or foil?) inside. I understand this may help with maintaining freshness, but it would be so nice to find a tea that has minimal plastic packaging.
We get a lot of the caffeine free and decaf varieties and are impressed with the selection in this area. Some of our favourites are Spring Fruit and Flower, Earl Grey Red, and the basic Chamomile.
Also love the Strawberry Black (makes the most epic iced tea) and Chinese Breakfast.
Absolutely a steal for the money considering the high quality and huge bags.
OMG! The big surprise! Classic super tasty, well balanced rich intense flavour. It has a beautiful aftertaste.
The bag is so big! The price is awesome for this size of the bag and the quality of the tea.
This blend is definitely my tea! I recommend it to all black tea lovers!
