I had my last cup of this today. I had received about 1.5 oz from MirandaGou. It has served me well. This was a comforting tea for me. If nothing else sounded good at work I would always turn to this tea. It also re-steeped nicely. I now have 3.5 oz of Zen Tea’s EGC to sip on.
Tasting note #300!
Dude. This is one of the teas that I’ve been eyeing for so long since I love jasmine so much and this one is just dang GORGEOUS!
I was going to wait till the end of the month when I visit DAVIDs, but MissB decided to throw this in the mystery pack I bought from her and I squealed when I saw it!
The leaves dry are just bursting with flavour. Not like overwhelming, but just great and mellow and beautiful and delicate and they’re rolled up in the shape of butterflies which makes it even better and ahhh it’s the best tea ever okay.
The Jasmine just comes out beautifully as it steeps and the leaves unravel and they’re huge and gorgeous and oh my gosh this tea is just the best tea in the entire world.
I’ve got about 10g left and I’m going to make this last as long as I can. I’ll just inhale it and then tell myself that I shouldn’t have some because there are other teas in my cupboard that needs some love.
This may be one of my favourite jasmine teas out there. Just because it’s rolled up so nicely, it’s like… ahhh I love this tea so much.
Thank you TONS MissB!!

I’m having a very long day at work. It probably doesn’t help that I had the worst time falling asleep last night, which made getting out of bed this morning brutel. So, needless to say, I’m exhausted. So, I thought I should have something fun this afternoon to keep me going and cheer me up. Why not one of the new Davidstea spring teas?! I haven’t tried them all yet, but I’m working on it.
This one I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t know much about it when I initially got it, but now that I have it, I’m trying to decide what I think of it. I love the blueberries. It turns the tea a nice almost purple colour which is goregous. The lemon is coming out for sure near the back of my throat, which is fine, and the pineapple is adding a hint of sweetness. Now, I ended up adding some sugar to this one as I found it to be a bit too tart without it, probably from the lemongrass, but just half a tsp in 12oz was enough to change that.
I had originally steeped for the 4min minimum as I very rarely need any longer than that, but this time I ended up doing another few minutes. I’m not too sure how long I steeped for, but I would venture a guess that it was around the 6min mark or maybe a touch more.
Overall, quite a nice treat. I could see it being very nice iced if made properly, which I might try with a cup in the next few days. Maybe it’ll help me forget the snow blizzard we had yesterday and stay focused on the fact the sun is out and things are starting to melt away already.
if i remember correctly this tea started a second swap between me and jump62359 almost right after the first one.
i think many of us get into the cycle of thinking we owe the other swapper because they were so generous and thoughtful. thing is, this will NEVER END! cuz apparently tea lovers tend to be a very thoughtful and sensitive group. and tea is patient and delicate and has many moods.
so no surprise there :)
this tea is definitely better than i even expected it to be. which is saying a lot cuz i like davidstea but i tend to have low expectations for them most of the time. so i would have been very happy with ‘nice’. but this tea is good good :)
i’ll probably throw a bag in with my next order.
i wanna get the new spring collection, all those teas sound good! but i’m secretly hoping they are gonna make the latte mug in other colors? (fingers crossed).
i have 2 of the latte mugs already, one for home one for work. it’s a great mug for me. and i never even drink lattes. haha
Something about this blend is not sitting right with me. My friend thought it tasted like medicine but I am not getting that either. I get blueberry at the start of the sip then a hint lemongrass and it ends with sweet pineapple. I just can’t but feel that it is missing something though to bring all the flavors together.
Is there stevia in this?!? That is what is off to me. Something tastes like artificial sweetener in this blend.
Tonight I have been doing a major taste-all of my “sweet indulgence” sampler from David’s tea. It’s also chick flick night. So after I put in Casanova (you know the one, with Heath Ledger? mmmm) I decided what better to try than Love Tea #7?
Well darn it, I don’t like this one. It’s not undrinkable, I hope you don’t misunderstand. My affinity for floral teas just isn’t there, and I think that’s what ruins it for me. The first thing I taste is the rose. For me that overpowers the nice balance between the chocolate and strawberry.
I got this iced today in store.
So surprisingly good. I was expecting it to come out quite bitter, but it was delicious. Full of berry. A little dirt-y from the juniper berries, but I think that would be resolved with a cold steep.
Definitely a tea to keep in mind for summer. If I ever drink my way out of this pile of samples! :)
I braved my grumpy baby today because I needed to get out of the house, I was going crazy. It is finally warming up here in Saskatchewan, so I am stir crazy to finally get out and about!
Anyway….this tea…..I thought it was delicious, I didn’t taste any alcohol like others have mentioned. The creamy vanilla was the most prominent note for sure. The peach doesn’t taste quite as natural as I would like, but it is decent.
I put some of this in the fridge to chill for tomorrow, so I will update tomorrow.
I agree with Kittenna that it’s great to have a herbal offering that isn’t mint, chamomile, hibiscus, or licorice!
Flavors: Cream, Peach
I love a fruity tea, and this one does not disappoint! It has been a good accompaniment to my cold bacon (leftovers from BLTs earlier) and English muffin, complete with butter and blackberry jam. Hopefully I don’t cry into my cup while I watch Pride & Prejudice for the umpteenth time…
What’s really enjoyable about this tea is that it has this freshly burst berry appeal to it. Sweet not tart, as some blueberries can be. Another tea I’ve felt needs no additions. I may try this one iced, however I feel like it wouldn’t really make it to the fridge ;)
A sample from MissB. Thank you. :)
So first. Ingredients.
South African rooibos, rosehip shells, black currants, rose leaves, lavender, red currants, blueberries, natural flavouring*.

DavidsTea! You need to do better. Which one should I believe? Are there blueberries in there? Rose petals? I have no idea! Thankfully I’m not allergic to anything in either of the ingredient lists, but it doesn’t make me feel like I could trust either of them. I could serve it to a friend and find out about surprise!raspberries, or surprise!strawberries… and honestly it wouldn’t be that much of a surprise. Because this keeps on happening.
Anyways. The tea smells amazing. Yes, like Blueberry Jam or Blue Lagoon. I guess the same blueberry flavour is used in all of them. But since this one is a rooibos, it is a bit woody. Maybe it’s a tiny bit floral, on the end of the sip. IDK. It’s hard to tell, what with all the blueberry.
This is another rooibos I like that isn’t a dessert flavour. Nice and fruity. But would I have room in my cupboard for both Northern Berry from Zen Tea, and this one? Probably not. And I’d probably go with Northern Berry because it has cranberries in it. Mmm, cranberries.
(Sample pack in 16 oz. 1/4 tsp honey.)
I don’t like licorice. Why am I drinking this tea? Why do I have this tea? (The girl at the davidstea lied to me, by the way. I asked for a quarter of an ounce and she gave me a full half.) Why do I do this to myself?
It’s… not terrible, which is saying something. It smells really good, actually (although I didn’t put the giant anise star in my cup. That kind of defeats the whole purpose of this tea, doesn’t it? Oh well.) It tastes pretty good, too, sweet and creamy and chocolatey like chocolatey davidstea blends are wont to be. But every couple sips I get hit with the most terrible licoricey aftertaste, and I remember why I shouldn’t own this tea. We’ll see. Maybe it’s an acquirable taste?
Not giving this a rating, for obvious reasons.
