Perfect both hot and iced! Fruity, sweet, delicate. I like to add a decent amount of sugar to it of I’m brewing iced, but that’s the Southerner in me talking. Great as-is hot, lots of apple chunks to sweeten it up.

In an attempt to save money, I’ve been trying to figure out which teas in my cupboard re-steep the best. This one did surprisingly well, I did the first steeping for 3 minutes each. Still plenty flavorful, could probably go for a third time if I wanted to.

Flavors: Pineapple, Sweet, Vegetal

I’ve never re-steeped this one before, so I tried that today. A little weak but not terrible, 1:30 the first time, 2:00 the second. It was okay, I guess I’d do it again? I wouldn’t try more than two steepings though. I think sugar helped (1 tsp turbinado).

Nice naturally sweet flavor. Candied pineapple with vegetal undertones. One of my favorite Harney teas!

The green and black is an interesting combination. I thought the black would overpower the green but that wasn’t the case. The floral fragrance is light and delicate. Wouldn’t recommend steeping over 180 degrees though.

This tea smells deceptively strong, but it’s a nice, light, delicate tea. The hibiscus isn’t overpowering and has a hint of jasmine. It gets bitter really easily and quickly, so I steep it at about 170-180 for 60-90 seconds. The label says to do it for like 4 minutes but if you go in the DAVIDsTEA store, they tell you only a minute. They’re totally right – any more than 1:30 and it’s ruined.

Flavors: Flowers, Hibiscus, Jasmine

I’m still new to pu-erh, but I really like this one. Although to be honest it tastes more like strawberries than anything, not really getting that rich earthy flavor. But enjoyable nonetheless.
