Gosh darn it I love this tea! Only ever drank it iced. Well, ok, one time I wasn’t patient enough for the ice to fully melt so I did get a taste of it warm but it doesn’t count. I ran out a while back and I waited — I don’t know why because it’s my go to “juice” tea. Ok, who am I kidding, it is my only juice tea. It is so good that I stock no others. God, is that bad to admit?

So anyway my order came and I am so pleased to have this in the house again. I don’t know what I will do if they ever pull it. I mean, even if I buy several 250 gram bags, I will still run out at some point. That’s how much I like it.

I don’t even know what to say in a tasting note. Because really, how do you talk about love? Talking about love is like dancing about architecture. :)

But ok, since someone who hasn’t had this might read this I shall give it a go. The dry leaf is chunky because of all the dried fruit so you need a lot which would make it a bit expensive. It tastes like melon. It’s red from hibiscus but you can’t taste hibiscus — at least I can’t. The second steep gets a bit more tart but the first steep is all melon and goji berries. Which is odd because apple is the first ingredient on the list.

Good enough?

How do you take this one?

About one heaped teaspoon of sugar to a 16 oz glass. I was just thinking that I might cut back a bit on that, last time it was quite sweet. A generous handful of ice cubes. I do not, however, fill my glass with ice cubes like they do for you at DAVIDs.

Oh ok. Do you like this one hot, also?

Dunno, never tried.

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
