I picked up a little sample of this tea out of curiosity. Oh my! It smells amazing! I’m enjoying the juiciness of this tea while the sunshine streams through my window. It feels like a mini getaway.
With my first sip, I didn’t care for the way the sweetness sat on my tongue, but with each additional sip, it becomes increasingly enjoyable. The mango is the dominant flavor, which is fantastic in my books, and the pomegranate adds a light tartness without being overwhelming. The mix contains a lot of fruit, but it’s priced on the lower end of the scale compared some other David’s black teas, so that seems to balance out the fact that the mix is a tad on the heavy side (in terms of cost per cup). I managed to get an alright second steep out of the leaves but the strength and taste were significantly diminished.
I’m enjoying this one hot, and I imagine that it would make a lovely iced tea. I plan to pick this up again in a sample size on future trips to Davids tea.
