drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA
504 tasting notes

Ok I have 3 minutes on my break to add a quick note about my Swampwater!

First of all, I have had this tea for exactly one year. Untouched (kind of). My first and last david’s tea purchase until a few months ago in fact! I asked for a tea that would be refreshing as an iced tea and not need any sweetener! So I smelled Swampwater and was in love!

I went home and knew nothing about how to make real iced tea. I had a tiny tea-ball thing (about a tablespoon) that wouldn’t be enough for a big batch. So I just dumped some loose tea in thinking I would strain it when it was done. Strain with what? I had nothing. So it was a gross mess full of rooibos that tasted weird because I kept having to pick little things out of my teeth.

One year later! I cold brewed it first overnight in my DT mug at work. It was awesome because it didn’t leave the orange ring when cold brewed (which is part of the fun when it’s hot!) but tasted very refreshing. I tried it hot the same day and it was fresh and delicious.

So I have to say I am impressed with the freshness after one year, but possibly sadenned because it’s no longer on the market? if you find some of this somewhere sometime – try it! It’s fun :D

Profile

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
