This is the greatest tea ever. The roasty flavour of the rice is so very comforting and delicious. I just pop (hehe) a few tablespoons (yes, tablespoons) into the bottom of my mug, pour steaming hot water on top, let the leaves sink to the bottom and drink away. This way, the rice stays on the top and you can have a little snack while you drink your favourite tea! :-)

Before I write my note, I’ll admit: I’ve yet to try this iced, I probably steeped it for too long, and I drank it straight.
That being said, as much as I wanted to like this tea, I just couldn’t. It’s not sure what it wants to be. It asks me, Am I coffee? Am I pu-erh? I’ll just be a strange mix of both! I’ll have to try this again and see where it takes me.

Having tried most of DavidsTeas already, and making a noble effort to try a new one everyday, AND feeling a bit under the weather, this was today’s new tea to try. I hate the smell of the leaves, and considered it utterly un-drinkable for months. But I’m proud to say that I’ve finally taken the leap and tried this tea. And I quite like it. I can’t taste anything but the ginger, but its sharp bite is great. It feels a little bit scratchy on my throat, but it is probably just because I generally don’t drink such ginger-y beverages on a normal basis. I truly can’t taste the green tea, and I can’t taste any lemon or licorice. But, I’ve been steeping it for about an hour and a half now (which might be my problem), and it still isn’t bitter, which I’ve never seen in a green tea. It’s not my favourite and I wouldn’t drink it everyday, but it’s definitely a great go-to when you’re not feeling your best.

My new favourite. This tea is phenomenally cinnamon-y, so much so that the rooibos is practically non-existent. If I couldn’t see it in the loose leaf, I wouldn’t know it was there. Which is good, because I’m not much of a rooibos fan :) I’m THERE.

**Just as an added note: This tea must be made with boiling water for the cinnamon to be prominent: If made with 80 degree water, the rooibos REALLY comes out!

I love the bitterness to this tea. It doesn’t make me sleepy, but it actually aids my digestion issues. Whenever I’m not in the mood for bitter, I mix it with The Immunizer for a deliciously herbal cure-all. The cinnamon in The Immunizer sweetens it just enough to make this tea perfect!

Ever wondered what a hot, chocolate Popsicle tastes like? I don’t anymore.

I tried this in store today. The licorice in this tea is absolutely to die for, and I enjoyed it immensely. I will most likely be purchasing some soon, and not just for sore throats!

I was definitely expecting more lavender flavour in this mix. The fruitiness is delightfully pleasant, but it won’t be my go-to caffeine free tea. Good for a rooibos, quite sweet but I’m not getting the floral notes I wanted. And it doesn’t make me feel like I’m in France, which is what the girl at the store told me would happen.

Positively delightful. Don’t oversteep, it has a fine line between perfect and bitter.

Profile

Bio

I am a student on a mission to spend all of my hard earned cash on tea, and don’t have time to waste on a bad cup of tea!
I love DavidsTea, mostly because it is easily accessible for me and I like my tea on the sweeter side. I’m looking to expand further into the tea world, especially in terms of oolong and herbal teas.
My favourite teas are anything spicy, especially with cloves and/or cinnamon, anything nutty, minty, earthy, floral or citrus-y.
I am forever on a mission for a life altering grapefruit tea.
