drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA
5075 tasting notes

Cavocorax sent me this to try since as much as i can admit there are David’s teas out there that are delicious, on average i generally don’t like them as much as other teas. I find them a good entry point to loose leaf tea but that’s about it. However, that doesn’t stop me from enjoying trying them and i love that they will let you walk in to the store and pick up whatever size you want! I wish all companies would do this. seriously.

So this tea? It’s not too shabby. I tried it hot brewed first and i’m sure i’ll do a cold brew just to try it out. it smells like coconut, but doesn’t taste TOOOOO much like coconut – the citrus/pineapple adds something to it. I have a feeling that this would make a good vodka infusion so maybe i’ll try that. Especially if you added some raspberry juice to it? maybe. hmmmmm

thanks cavo! even if it does mean my cupboard goes up since i haven’t been staying on top of my sipdowns this week lesigh

I mean, this tea sounds decent enough, but I keep on reading these reviews and wondering why on earth did they call it Mint Julep!? Juleps are my heritage and I just can’t get behind it.

I thought it tasted like an amaretto sour with mint.

It is essentially the same as Mojito from three years ago. No-one can really explain why they are calling it mint julep – I only wish they hadn’t added coconut this time. I have a sample but am leery of the coconut as I LOVED mojito (actually just finished it off today, heh).

man if there was no coconut it would be awesome…

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
