drank Gold Rush (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
145 tasting notes

This is the first Davids Tea of the Month of 2012 that I really like! The dry leaves smell sweet and cake-y and it kind of makes me think of a cross between Mulberry Magic and Checkmate. Most of the bulk of the tea is taken up by the giant mulberries and I had to reach way to the bottom of the bag to get a decent amount of white tea in there. But it tastes creamy and bourbon-y and it’s nice and full-bodied. I’ll probably be buying some more before it disappears.

I was wondeering if they remixed those other tea’s…a tease of sorts…pun…and I’m glad you gave a review. I was toying with getting this or not. Like the thought of a bourbon-y tea. Imagine a dessert of baked apples or apple pie (I make a french apple pie and a pie with chedder cheese melted under the top crust..won a prize with both) and then sipping a boubon tea…nice mental picture. Ok want this tea too. Thanks for the good review!

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
