104 Tasting Notes
I went to DAVIDs today to get the summer collection and my tummy was kind of upset, but I still wanted to try something new. I must say, I made an excellent choice by trying a cup of this. The mint, ginger, and fennel work really well together and it makes a nice sweet minty drink. I will definitely be buying a tin of this once one of my other mint teas runs out! :)
When I first got into DAVIDs Tea in 2012, that summer they had a tea called Luscious Watermelon which I just LOVED. That tea has been discontinued, so when I saw that one of the summer collection’s teas was a watermelon one, I was so pumped, and this tea has not disappointed me! I love the taste of the melons with the hint of mint. It’s so refreshing and nice. I also love that this one doesn’t have any hibiscus in it to ruin it :). My one criticism is that you can kind of tell there is a bit of artificial flavouring..but it doesn’t bother me too much. I’m definitely picking up a few tins of this :D!
The summer collection is out! I am trying all of the summer collection and I must say I think this will be my least favourite, which is not surprising because I HATE hibiscus. I thought I would give it a try anyways because all of the other flavours sound delicious, but yeah…tart explosion in a cup, even when you add a bunch of agave. I’ll finish or give away the 25grams but otherwise I am definitely not buying this again.
This tea taught me something: Don’t judge a tea based on the first cup if you are unsure about it. Originally, I rated this tea a 65, but since finishing up 25 grams of it, I became accustomed to the seaweed taste and find that it works well with the green tea. Better yet, it’s healthy! I would actually buy this tea again, and will try and avoid rating teas after only 1 cup.
