drank Daydreamer by DAVIDsTEA
223 tasting notes

My DT order arrived yesterday, so its time for another round of tastings for new teas. First up was Daydreamer. I made iced tea for my timolino and my other half’s thermos this morning – our 28oc autumn day called for the iced option! I was really excited to try this one after reading the description too, I love both sencha and mango.

We both really enjoyed it! I do a nice subtle green blend, where the base tea is still taste-able, and the mango was a good match for the sencha. Very light and refreshing after walking through town to my office in the warmth. I did give mine a bit of a longer steep than recommended, I find sencha can cope with it as long as the water is cool enough. I find it helps bring out the accompanying fruit flavour.

All in all, I enjoyed this one. I’ll agree with others in that its not remarkable, or a instant must have (like the first time I tried Chocolate Rocket, for example), but still very enjoyable and refreshing.

I remember getting my first cup of tea at about the age of 8. Just a standard run of the mill black, with some sugar and milk to make it palatable to an 8year old. But a love was born and I’ve never looked back!

I’ve always appreciated the quality of loose leaf, and thanks to the discovery of the fanatastic gadgets at DavidsTea while on holiday, the tea obsession has grown! Is it weird to be ordering tea and having it sent half way around the world?

I’d love to do some tea swaps with people to try new teas. I have a bit of a DavidsTea range for any Australians interested in trying some DT goodness minus international postage fees!

Ive just started working at The Art of Tea , a small Tasmanian company. They dont currently ship overseas, but im more than happy to arrange swaps with people. their full product listing can be found here: http://www.artoftea.com.au/. (December 2012).
