It’s a sad, sad day when I have to admit defeat on a tea… Alpine Punch, that is.

I’d tried and tried and tried again to make Alpine Punch work, it tasted so good! But without fail I would get a headache 3-4 sips in and then have to dump the rest. So, the other day I walked into my local DAVIDsTEA in shame, a bag of Alpine Punch to return. The sales-girl helping me was more than accommodating, giving me plenty of suggestions and recommendations.

In the end I exchanged for this tea, since I’ve been looking for yet another black tea to put into rotation with Nepal Black, Buttered Rum, and my collection of Earl Greys. This has a nice body that holds up to milk and sugar, which actually seems to get better as it cools. Right now it’s lukewarm and downright delicious! Nepal Black is still my favourite, but it’s nice to have a break once in a while…

You can make returns at DT?! You have just blown my mind and made my day! I have a little bag of All the Raj that always makes me sad when I see it in the cupboard..

You’re quite welcome! Hope you trade it in for something more worthwhile…

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
