Earlier this summer I found myself in a brick and mortar David’s, which was a ridiculously awesome shopping experience. I ordered this as a Tea Pop as I was getting ready to check out. After looking over the receipt later, I found out they didn’t charge me for it!
Fast forward a few months, and I stumbled across this tea while looking for something I haven’t tried yet. From memory, I could have sworn it was an herbal. I didn’t really notice much green tea at all in the bag, so maybe that’s why my memory failed me. The smell reminds me of key lime pie (making it a bit similar to Lime Chiffon in that regard).
The suggested steeping temperature is 200F, which seems way too high for green tea. I went with 180F, which is my standard temperature for greens. The result was sooooo tasty. I absolutely adore this tea. If there were a graham component to the flavor, I would swear it was key lime pie in a cup. I honestly didn’t taste much of the green base, so it loses a few points for that.
Well done, David’s.
