drank Bamboozled by DAVIDsTEA

OMG Dexter season 7 finale just blew my mind. I can’t wait for season 8. June 30. The countdown is on.

I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for this tea to be available in store. Finally! It smells pretty good. Very juicy fruity dry and slightly diminished steeped. I’ve never tried a tea with bamboo so I’m quite excited.

That has a fruity taste I wasn’t expecting. Tastes just like the dry smell. That diminished scent after steeping tricked me! There’s a lovely sweetness that kicks in at the end of the sip. It took me by surprise. Bamboozled, you were worth the wait. This will be upgraded to the permanent collection.

Update: Resteep just as delicious. Excellent.

Update February 17/13: Also delicious chilled. And I scored a whole tin at the south store today. The drive was worth it haha.

I really need to catch up on Dexter! Ahhhhh!

And I was kind of interested in checking this one out, I am super intrigued by the description.

That was me too! Honestly I waited FOREVER it seemed. But it’s so delish. I only bought 10g tonight or else I’d off to send you some! And that was me with Dexter as well. Slightly embarrassing I watched halfway through S5 through to the end of S7 beginning Saturday and ending now. Amazing.

Sil

I need to do that too…I last saw season 2? Ugh :(

I will just pick some up next time I’m near DavidsTea… or I’ll order some online. It’s just, online orders require you to be pretty committed to the tea, because 50g is a pretty decent amount!

And yeah, I think season five was where I left off. I love that show, though!

Courtney

I know. I’m so happy the store near me finally opened up! So good. Yep both season 6 and 7 were pretty intense. Hence why I essentially put off everything else I had to do. Once I started watching I couldn’t stop haha.

Courtney

Sil! You need to get on it haha :P Dexter is such a good show. Just keeps getting better :)

Valerie

oh my goodness this sounds amazing.

KittyLovesTea

I’m waiting for new Dexter too :) Me and my husband are guaranteed to have some tea when we watch our shows together. This tea sounds like it’s full of fruity goody goodness. Yum.

Yikes! We just saw S6 on Netflix and I just gotta know what happens next! INSANITY.

Good to know i’ve got lots of good stuff to look forward to.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true chocolate flavour), rhubarb, to be continued…

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
