5 tasting notes

I love the first of each month, it’s always filled with surprises and discoveries :)
This month was particularly special at Davids tea because they came out with such a wonderful herbal tea blend that SCREAMS summer vacations!

My first smell : HEAVEN SWEETNESS! The coconut wins hands down for me then the apples – mixed with cinnamon – and mangoes. The vanilla is marrying all the scents together. Overall, it’s a pretty tea to look at with full pieces of star anise.

While steeping, the fruits are starting to take over the smell battle. The mangoes are impressively strong so are the apples and cinnamon. I steeped my tea for 5 minutes and did not bother adding any sweetener considering it already smelt so sweet! The tea has a beautiful yellow color.

The end product is to me is almost like a summery fruit pastry. You get a strong taste of apple and cinnamon, refreshing taste of coconut and the sweetness of the mangoes. Everything works together! I was a bit scared the star anise would be overpowering but it turned out just wonderful. I’m very satisfied with this tea and will most likely get more for the warmer days to drink on ice :)

My name is Magali. In 2008, I decided to move to the United States to pursue love. I had a child in 2009 and not to long after, my health started falling apart. For the past 5 years it’s been a battle to find what was causing my pain. Just recently found in May 2014 the cause of my my problems. I am now back to Canada, taking better care of myself : I went on various diet, started meditating, doing yoga and drinking tea :)
