I went into David’s Tea for the first time maybe two weeks ago, as I’m working a temporary job near one. I had never been into a David’s before, so I wanted to check it out. I bought too much tea. I was kind of tired, and I meant to only buy 50 gs, and I bought 100 instead. I was too anxious at the time to correct her after she rang me up. So now I have a lot of this tea.
I’ve been looking for a lemon tea for awhile, something similar to Lemon Lift by Bigelow, but of a higher quality. La La Lemon is the closest I have come to that tea, as both have a kind of creamy sweetness along with the lemon flavor. I have no idea how the David’s blend manages that, as it only has tea and citrus in it. My best guess is that’s it uses the orange oil in it in a very smart way. However, I still don’t like this tea as much as Lemon Lift, and I feel like it’s a bit expensive for a flavored black tea. I probably won’t buy more of this when it is gone.
WIth that said, I’m drinking this tea now, and I’m enjoying it. It is a bright and tart tea, with an undertone of a snappy black base. It brews red-brown in color, and appears thin in the cup.
My rating for this tea is how much I like it, not how much I like it for how much I paid for it. I may just buy some Lemon Lift teabags and suck up my pride.
Flavors: Cream, Lemon Zest
