Dry Leaf Nose: Strawberries and cream.

Liquor: Dark brown/classic black tea.

Flavour: Strawberries and whipped cream with a cake-like background. Very appealing and remarkably like a strawberry shortcake in character of flavour.

Amariel

Is this to compliment the other cake teas or is this something separate?

DAVIDsTEA

@Heather: The others were a limited edition launch. This one is a standalone cake tea (kind of like Carrot Cake was).

Haha, after my last experiment trying three Pina Colada teas in one night (after a real virgin pina colada), my stomach is churning a little… (but someone’s gotta make a good pineapple coconut tea eventually, right?!)

Amariel

I can’t believe Swampwater has been discontinued! I hope it comes back again in the near future. It is my favorite tea, ever!

jadlowitz

Nicole, I am in the same position. I really enjoy this tea and thought it was going to be online only. Yet the company has decided to change their policy.

-nicole-

It is unfortunate. I ordered 50g, and then went to order more when I seen online only, but it says it was out of stock :( Hopefully it returns again in the future..

drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA
149 tasting notes

Dry Leaf Nose: Wonderful fruity and floral aroma that is sweet and clean.

Liquor: Golden green colour with a wonderful fruity, floral aroma.

Flavour: Floral notes prevail in the cup and are well-supported by the fruity notes of the hibiscus. Jasmine hints finish the cup.

Preparation

Awkward Soul

The white hibiscus blossoms are sparking my curiosity. It’s not tart like the red hibiscus?

DAVIDsTEA

It’s actually quite floral – fruity even.

Cattibrie

Having it right now. It is nice and fruity. Tastes like it smells. I get more of a white tea taste from it than a green but I will be buying more of this one.

Sandra Brassard

Your best blend ♥

Dry Leaf Nose: Minty with a citrus and fruity note.

Liquor: Golden yellow to light red.

Flavour: Minty and fruity with a slightly tart taste. Prominent rosehip and hibiscus notes that are balanced by the lemongrass that adds a citrusy background. Valerian root is buried in the complex character of the blend (which is good because it can have an acrid taste).

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 6 min, 0 sec

Just curious – if this one’s not a new tea (which it doesn’t appear to be), why put up a description like this now?? Made me excited until I saw that there were year-old tasting notes :( (And I’m not familiar with it, so it probably doesn’t exist anymore).

DaisyChubb

Krystaleyn – they’re re-releasing it for Mother’s Day :)

Kittenna

How did you find that out?! I use Facebook to be up on things and somehow missed the new teas AND the re-release of this.

Kittenna

Whoops, I see the Mother’s Day stuff. I hate this stupid Timeline layout…

DaisyChubb

I just saw it on the actual DT website actually – I’m not too good at keeping up on Facebook
