drank Banana Daiquiri by DAVIDsTEA
1291 tasting notes

Another backlog! from Friday
I forgot that I tried this in store already, but it was so good that I don’t mind. With a tiny pump of agave, it was liquid perfection! none of the harsh rooibos flavour tickled my throat… and the banana really came out. yummm. I’m tempted to buy some up before they get rid of it in store…
P.S. I apologize for not looking at everyone’s reviews! I’ll get to it sometime this week, promise! :)

Oh lucky! They ran out last week at my store before I got to even try it – snatch it up while it lasts! :)

Indigobloom

Hmmm well if I do buy any (doubtful, but possible) I will send you some! :)

DaisyChubb

haha deal!
It reminds me, I see everyone talking about how Lime Bang is betetr than Lime Gelato but Lime Bang is discontinued, but there’s a lot left at my store so I might buy it up and play Santa some time ^^

Daisy I prefer Lime Gelato. I did enjoy Lime Bang but if I had to choose Lime Gelato is definatley the one I am glad they kept. However I would definately encourage you to purchase Lime Bang if you can.

DaisyChubb

I haven’t tried either, I’m going in tomorrow to try some of the new fall teas so maybe I’ll pick a little bit of those up too! :)

Indigobloom

Oooh I haven’t tried Lime Bang either. I really like the gelato flavour so I doubt it can be topped! I’d still give it a chance :)

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
