drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA
696 tasting notes

I am finally trying this which was apparently a replacement for my beloved but long discontinued Mojito (also from Davids). This came out last summer with identical ingredients but also the addition of my nemesis, coconut. For some reason, Mojito always appealed to me most in winter and now I find myself reaching for this one. I hope the coconut is not noticeable but at the same time I don’t want to love it because I can’t get it anymore.

Not that this will help those that didn’t try Mojito, but it smells the same. Sweet mint, some clear rooibos that is woody/sharp. In the past I preferred to add extra mint but I am trying this as is before I much about with the rest of my sample. It does have a smell that reminds me of coconut but Mojito always gave me that impression as well, actually.

First sips are lovely. Sweet, light mint, almost a taste of dried pineapple and not too much rooibos. Again, this is unhelpful but it tastes exactly like Mojito to me. That is bad because I only bought 16 grams, but I love it. Now I regret not trying it in the summer so I could stock up if it was good. I see that it is available online in 250 grams for $19.50. If I weren’t moving this month, I would jump on that. As it is though I need to conserve my finances and I certainly have enough tea. If this one comes back next summer I will definitely stock up though. It’s nice to have one of my all time favourites back, even if it is only for a short while. Mmmm!

I appreciate that but I am terrible for not drinking my tea fast enough. If I got more now it would get packed and then end up not getting drank for months again. I’m a disaster, I know. Thanks for the offer though!

Well, this needed refreshing. I have been drinking loose leaf for many years, and have fairly well nailed down my tastes. I love Chinese blacks and some other unflavoured teas. I occasionally drink flavoured teas, or herbals, but the bulk of my tea is unflavoured with no additives. I stock regularly from Teavivre with the occasional Verdant purchase and the odd re-stock at Davids. I love mint, am learning about the wide world of puerh, and prefer ripe to raw, so far. I don’t like green or green oolongs very much, white is okay and roasted oolongs are pretty good. Coconut and chamomile are awful, and I wish they weren’t in so many blends!

At home, I live with my husband and cat in a house built by my grandfather, which we love. We share many interests – books, tea, video games, board games, tv/movies. On top of that, I love crosswords and recently took up knitting again, so I’m having a hard time balancing all my passions at the moment. I’m a big fan of Doctor Who, as is my entire immediate family. I love spreading the Who love!

We also spend a lot of time with family, when we can. I’ve got a gaggle of younger brothers, and we like to spend time with them. The wonders of the internet allow us to spend time together even though some of them live a few hours away.

As for ratings, I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
