drank Kyoto Cosmo by DAVIDsTEA

i didn’t love this tea, BUT, it is reminiscent of the quality that davids used to be… it wasn’t doused with a million ingridents and flavours combatting one another.. it was actually just a couple of simple ingridents complimenting one another.. and for that i have to give this tea kudos.

Strange, I think this batch was stale, but it kind of tasted like what coconut grove tastes like… not a fan.

since it was discontinued over a year ago, I would guess your leaves are stale :( that’s too bad, it was pretty lovely when it was good.

I’m not gonna lie.. I haven’t been feeling david’s lately… with all the mango teas for spring and summer that i couldn’t have, and some less than stellar blends that I could have, and the major disappearances of some of my favorites! … I have liked some of the new teas, but haven’t really LOVED them (not enough that i’ll really, really, miss them when they disappear)…. but THIS! on first smell, i thought it was going to be really fake currant tasting, and gross.. but on first sip.. i fell in love! .. the currant flavour is really strong, and true to currant taste.. and it changes into a creamy vanillaish taste… so simple, so beautiful :) i had it hot.. i’m gonna try it iced tommorow.

I am normally very picky about my ginger blends. I find there is a very fine line between being delicious, and being obnoxious… delicious- davids strawberry ginger, tealish ginger sparkle.. obnoxious, sweet ginger heat from davids…. this one is more on the delicious side. The creaminess of the coconut tames the ginger.. and the red rooibos gives it a nice smooth finish.. i quite enjoyed it… i didn`t get much of the apple, or cardamom notes on this steep though!

hmm this one is strange, at first smell, i was reminded of main squeeze by davids tea… but it tastes so much better than that!… It kind of tasted like bubble gum to me! I really enjoyed this honeybush!

this is a really neat blend. I’ve never tasted something quite like it! … I could really taste the cinnamon, but it wasn’t overpowering, with lots of bite like some cinnamon teas.. I definitely appreciate it! thanks JustJames for the chance to try this!
