drank Goji Pop by DAVIDsTEA
1075 tasting notes

Thank you Courtney for this sample. :)

Goji berries are not something I have had many times but I do remember experiencing their sour almost cranberry like flavours before.

It’s been such a long day at work and all I want to do is wind down and relax. Something fruity sounds nice and so does the idea of drinking something pink (which this claims to be on the packet).

In raw form this tea consists of large dried fruit pieces, red goji berries, dark red hibiscus petals and little shrivelled yellow petals that look like marigold. Looking at the ingredients list that covers just about everything so you can just about see it’s entire contents from looks alone. It’s nice when that happens. As the pieces are large they look like a mix between pot pourri and trail mix.

In scent this is fruity and sweet with high apple and citrus notes with a touch of something floral. It’s very yummy and juicy smelling. I used to have a lip gloss that smelled similar.

Once steeped this tea is light pink (the same colour as watermelon juice) and has a very gentle fruity aroma with a slight bitter tang.

Yummy. I can taste the melon and the apple :) I love melon. The consistency is light and refreshing with natural fruity sweetness and just a touch of sourness in the after taste. Thankfully the hibiscus is on the light side. While it’s sweet it’s on the lower levels of it but perfect for those of us without a sweet tooth (per say).

I just thought…I don’t crave puddings a lot of the time…I crave the tea form of it instead. If only there was a cheese and onion tea to take away my love for crisps (chips). A moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips…I need to remember that.

Ok back on course. The more I drink the stronger I can taste the melon and apple medley which is at the perfect balance for me. I imagine this tastes amazing as an iced tea, alas I only had enough to sample one teapots worth with (I’m not complaining…if Courtney wasn’t as wonderful as she is I would never have got to try this). Just making a mental note that if I am ever lucky enough to get my hands on some more I will definably try it iced. Maybe even in a slushy style (crushed ice).

The goji or hibiscus is coming through a little more now to create more of a sweet and sour fruit punch. It’s something that I would no doubt love to try again and those melon mad fans (like myself) need to try this.

Look at me I have waffle on a bit, so I will leave it there. I shall just sit back and watch Star Trek – Deep Space Nine.

I <3 Star Trek. Five Minutes ago I worked out I have seen at least one episode from each Star Trek version (crew) today. Nothing beats watching Star Trek with a pot of tea.

Yay for tea and Deep Space Nine!

I actually didn’t keep this in my cupboard initially after trying it hot. Then one day I had it cold at the store and it’s been in my cupboard ever since! I’m glad you enjoyed it :)

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
