DavidsTea Summer Collection
With the exception of mango fruit punch, i’m extremely excited for these guys :)
As a native Kentuckian, they are releasing Mint Julep half a month too late! I’m interested to see how that works as a tea, though.
I drank a mint julep on Saturday! The cabin we stayed at was about an hour from Louisville actually :)
Two or three summers ago that had a Mojito tea that I adored – I actually still have a tiny bit left in my work stash. I hope Mint Julep can replace the Mojito void!
So I was just in store and the guy working there said that Mint Julep IS Mojito – WAHOO! I don’t remember any coconut in Mojito, but I am excited to try the new version and see if it holds up to my old flame.
Mint Julep totally tastes like a Mojito. I adore it, I drink 2 travel mugs worth today. It tastes amazing with bourbon too :)
I’m excited for all of this except tropicalia, I found it to be WAY too sweet.
I hope the other two herbals don’t have artificial flavoring. I’d love to get to try a new iced tea :)
Goodbye Coconut Oolong and Pom Tango! :O
I’d better stock up on my beloved Coconut Oolong :/
If you aren’t able to, from what I understand, a lot of Coconut Oolongs are fairly similiar so you’d probably be able to find something similiar. I like Zen Tea’s Coconut Oolong, even though there are some differences between the two, because I can’t really tell the difference.
Has anyone managed to sneak a peek at the teaware? That could make a great belated Mother’s Day gift. :P
Do you think it’s worth it to get any of the pitcher-packs? Or is it cheaper just to use the loose leaf I wonder haha. Math eludes me while I’m on my break at work
Didn’t realize they were available online til your post. My store isn’t selling the summer stuff til the 15th, so I’m tempted to order online :)
Wooo econ power let’s see
Tropicalia Pitcher Pack: 12.5 cents per gram, 50g: 13.5 per gram so the pitcher pack is better there!
Coconut Grove Pitcher pack: 19.4 cents per gram, 50g pouch: 21 cents per gram…again pack is better
Mango Fruit Punch: 13.5 cents per gram for both, so that’s even
Pink Passionfruit: 13.5 per gram for pack, 13 per gram for 50g
Mint Julep: 21.9 per gram for the pack, 13 per gram for 50g…jeez
non-new tea packs:
Green and Fruity: 11.7 cents per gram / 13 per gram
Main Squeeze: 12.5 cents per gram / 13 again
Goji Pop 13.5 cents per gram for both
so they packs are worth it except for Mint Julep which isn’t worth it at all.
Also the solo containers:
All of them but Coconut Grove are ~13.6 per gram, better value for Tropicalia and Mango Fruit Punch.
Coconut Grove is 31.6 cents per gram this way, that’s…beyond ridiculous. And it’s mislabeled in the image. Womp.
ee thanks momo! i remember those GIANT tins of Read my Lips and Forever Nuts – you saved a TON of money getting the Forever Nuts tin, but I didn’t get a chance to get one. They have the Read my Lips back in store, but that’s a lot of one kind of tea to invent in.
I digress, thanks so much you math wizard you ;)
No problem! I have been meaning to do that for awhile on some stuff out of curiosity. The packets are definitely worthwhile for just wanting to try something. I wish I had money wahhhh.
Darn. Every single one of them has artificial flavoring. =/ Ah well, I was more excited for the ware anyway. Taking a peek at the glass pitchers, and I’m a bit sad that there doesn’t appear to be any new perfect mugs.
I want… no I NEED the iced tea dispenser they now have. ERMAHGERD. Save me from myself.
