drank Mojito by DAVIDsTEA
680 tasting notes

My heart is breaking – Somehow, out of nowhere, this tea has become one of my favourites. I honestly considered not having a cup right now because I wouldn’t be able to squeeze in my other two customary steeps and I didn’t want to waste them (then I realized I could steep the bag again tomorrow, huzzah!). Anyway, it is excellent that I love this tea, because I have 3/4 of a tin of it. It is devastating that I love this tea because it was apparently a summer only tea and isn’t available anymore. Not to mention that it might not ever be again. I can see myself now in 6 months, begging the lovely ladies at David’s Tea to find a long hidden stash. My best hope, other than the tea coming back into circulation permanently, is that I will fall out of love with it and I will be able to move on. Until then, I drink happily, but sparingly. Three steeps per ‘serving’ – this will help it last : )

My mom gave me a summer collection kit from the sample sale for Christmas. I’m liking them all but have been hesitant to open the Mojito as, while the description sounds tasty, I pretty much dislike mint teas across the board. I’d rather it have a good home than me dislike it, so if you’d like another 25g of it I’d be happy to send it to you!

I thought I hadn’t opened it but unfortunately it looks like I went on a sniffing spree and opened them all. That was about two weeks ago for a quick sniff. If you’re interested, let me know.

That would be amazing!! I still have plenty for now, but I’ve got a bit of a hoarding approach regarding teas I enjoy. Stupid question – this DT sample sale that I heard about repeatedly but never experienced – Does this only happen in TO or was it nation-wide? How did I miss it??

Jessie

It was nation-wide, but it was in-store only and over three days I think. It was also pretty small-scale. My store only had a little table of gift tins and summer stuff that they had to point out to me. I saw it on Facebook and don’t even know if there was an email about it, so it’d be pretty easy to miss.

Whenever you’d like the Mojito, send me your info!

Bio

I am a lover of many things, but my passions include my records, tea and books (not necessarily in that order!) I embrace local food and good cooking as much as I can, and place great value on time with family and enjoying the bounty of nature. As of January 2014 my husband and I finally moved to the country to be closer to family and continue our journey in a family home. We have been wanting to do this for a couple years, so we are very excited to follow our hearts. We also have a wonderful kitty named Emma that is the princess of the house.

I am drawn toward good Chinese blacks, enjoy some herbals and the odd roasted oolong. Greens and whites can make me nauseous, but I will have flavoured ones on occasion. While I don’t yet adore puerh, I am giving it my best effort. Chamomile and coconut are the devil though, I wish they didn’t exist. Mint has been a particular favourite of mine since childhood, and I enjoy both flavoured and pure teas though unflavoured blacks are tops for me.

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: WOW. This is the cream of the crop.
71 – 80: This is a solid tea. I enjoy it, and would recommend it to others, but may not repurchase.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. May try again to improve.
41 – 60: Bleh. Might finish it, but it’s not to my taste OR just doesn’t impress me at all.
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
