drank Fantasy Island by DAVIDsTEA
97 tasting notes

Pom Tango (one of Davids new spring teas) really did little to impress me, but I wanted a new spring black with fruit notes and landed upon Fantasy Island (recommended to me by the staff). At first I was hesitant given that it was raspberry and black tea. My first reaction to the scent was “oh no! grape cough syrup.” My nose is notorious for being wrong (ie. Secret Weapon) so I decided to give it a go regardless. I figured that it may brew up similarly to Chocolate Rocket, that I would be unimpressed and continue to use Chocolate Rocket in the mornings as my pick-me-up-I-need-to-go-to-work-now.

I was so impressed! The raspberry and the coconut work perfectly together to create a harmonious blend. I put a splash of milk in mine (no sugar) and it is absolutely wonderful. My curiosity is piqued to see if this would make a decent latte…

Overall, I’m very impressed. If you’re looking for a DavidsTea spring black because Pom Tango didn’t excite you, this is the tea!

Bio

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
