drank Jolly Jellybean by DAVIDsTEA
1350 tasting notes

Another one bites the dust. Dang. I was excited for this one. Unfortunately the 10g we bought had absolutely no jellybeans in it. I think the jellybeans are going the way of the watermelon bits in Luscious Watermelon, aka being eaten by the staff. There weren’t very many jellybeans in the wall tin either.

Anyway, without jellybeans, this tastes like your typical bourbon vanilla rooibos with just a hint of fruit. I am disappointed. This is another one I will not be adding to my collection. I will rate if I ever get some with jellybeans in it.

I went for 100g and there were Jelly Bellys that I got. :)

No jellybeans in my 26 grams either…

Hello Hello! I’m a David’s tea staff, and I don’t eat them! (cuz I don’t like jellybean) but f the staff seems nice where you buy it, you can maybe ask for a jelly bean? or just be nice and say ’’I’ll hope I’ll have some jellybeans in it’’! But with 10g, you would only have had a jellybean!!! And I find it doesn’t really make it better!

Meh. The staff at my DT is great, but I’m not really interested enough in this tea to buy another 10 g. :) But, I mean, the whole point of the tea is the jellybeans, and so it just kinda sucks when you spend your money to try a tea and don’t get any of the “main” ingredient, 10g or 100g, it shouldn’t really matter. shrugs Just my 2 cents. And staff at other stores have admitted to eating the jellybeans out of the mix

Angrboda

So… they admitted to standing there and putting there hands in what they were then going to sell as a consumable? Are they really seriously allowed to do that, really? Because… isn’t that tampering with the goods? If something like that had been admitted to me, I think I would find a different place to shop, to be honest. I wouldn’t shop at a baker’s where the staff picked the raisins out of the raisin buns either.

Because I have great faith and love for DT, I’m going to assume (hope) that scoops were used to get the jellybeans out, because I really can’t see them reaching into the tin and picking them out.

lol @angrboda. It would be really sad to not get jelly beans in there especially since it is advertised. but davids tea staff has been wonderful everytime I had a problem. I order On line to the states but they took care of everything right from the phone so maybe call and tell them the situation?

lol crazy, this review is 9 months old, I’m not going to email them about this now. Besides I love my local Davids staff and this was an isolated incident, I’m not going to blow the whistle on them on something that happened ages ago. I’m on good terms with the DavidsTea customer service department, this isn’t worth bothering them about. shrugs

i know this is old… i can’t see eating bits of the tea straight out of the tin, but steeping a cup then eating the jelly bean? sure.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
