I went in to the mall tonight to pick up a few things and as I was leaving, stopped in at David’s (as per usual). The store was empty tonight which is extremely rare and I took advantage of the opportunity to speak to the staff. It paid off as I got a recommendation to try this tea. My mom had it warm while I had it iced. She really enjoyed it as do I. Iced, I found that it is like a fruit punch and reminded me of my many vacations on tropical islands. I am also so happy that the proceeds go to Haiti and that this tea really showcases and celebrates Haitian culture. The cinnamon however, adds a level of spice to this tea that you would not get in a typical fruit punch. I found that as it is not overpowering, it really showcases the sweetness of all the other ingredients and elevates their flavours. I will absolutely pick up a tin of this!

Bio

I am a tea fanatic and have also recently made the transition from vegetarian to vegan! I always have tea in my hand and in my overflowing cupboard!

I prefer black, green and white teas. I have recently discovered mate and oolongs. So far I’ve enjoyed them however, I have not tried very many. I am not often a fan of rooibos as I tend to find them overly woody but have found there to be some exceptions. As for herbals, I am only recently beginning to drink these on a regular basis (mostly iced) as the weather gets warmer, but these I am willing to try. I have not yet developped the taste for pu’erh.

I tend to only rate and review the teas I drink once (maybe twice if my opinion REALLY changes; especially if I were to have them prepared a different way). I currently only use Steepster for logging my reviews of David’s Tea although I do drink teas from many different companies. Every time I visit the store, I try something new in a cup to-go as I enjoy going through the tea menu and marking off teas as I try them. My goal is to try them all!

My rating system is as follows:
90-100: Wecome to my permanent collection! (worthy of a 100g tin!)

75-90: Definetly would drink again but maybe not all the time. I would buy a small amount (50g or less) to have once in a while.

50-75: I will finish the cup but not my favourite.

25-50: I will try to finish the cup but may not be able to.

0-25: Not my cup of tea…down the sink we go!
