drank Indian Summer by DAVIDsTEA
155 tasting notes

Just got this tea because DAVIDsTEA was having a sale for like the first time ever. Got 250g of it despite never having tried it, hoping for the best based on previous reviews (I figured I like fruity teas, I like cherry, I like watermelon, I like apple, I like sweet, what could go wrong?)

Well, pleased to say this tea lived up to my expectations. I opened the bag and it smells a bit like a grocery store was put in a food dehydrator and then dumped in the bag. There are SO MANY ingredients it’s hard to believe the tea would be any good. But it is. I can’t taste the carrot, I can’t taste the lemongrass, I can’t taste the fig, I can’t taste the pumpkin, and I can’t taste the hibiscus (but it does turn the tea a lovely shade of pink). The watermelon is what pops out first, then followed by a strong cherry flavour (in this spoonful there happened to be a whole cherry, so I’m not surprised). The apple is there, but subdued.

I personally really like this tea. I can see how others might not, but it’s good. If this is just a sale and not an inventory clear-out for these teas never to return, I’d definitely buy it again.

I love tea. And I don’t mean like “I like to drink tea in the mornings”. I mean, I LOVE TEA. I also have an intense love for spreading the news that plants and fungi are the coolest groups of organisms on Earth. If you’d like to learn why I think so, you should visit my blog. I write about one cool plant or fungus every day.
