Meh. This one was good, nice and fruity, but nothing to write home about. I feel like I’ve had this tea before, you know? It is a refreshing treat, and I think I’ll use the rest of our sample to make a pitcher of iced tea, but I don’t see this having a home in our cupboard. If I want a mango tea, I’ll reach for the Yerba Mate Mango from Tea Haus. I am enjoying this one, but it’s….unremarkable.

I haven’t tried this yet, and it sounds good, but when reading the ingredients it definitely sounded like something (or many things) I’ve had before!

Thank you for reviewing most of these new spring teas! I was on the fence about which to try, and which not. This one was definitely a front-runner based on the description, but I can totally see what you’re saying. Now, I may just try some to-go when I go to pick up some Organic Gold Rush :)

I’m always glad that there are people who try teas out soon after their release! I keep feeling tempted by the Gold Rush as well. Teas like this one that have “exotic” type flavors (lychee, mangousteen, and dragonfruit) are difficult to place because most people I know don’t actually know what these taste like. Many times these flavors are a bit off from what I actually have tasted from the fruit itself.

@teaNsympathy – It’s my pleasure, trust me! I’m kind of disappointed in the whole spring line, it’s a hibiscus love-fest! Blegh. But oh yes, Gold Rush is love!!

@Tamm – There’s a DT around the corner from where I work, so I try to get the new teas ASAP. I’m going to try the last of the new ones, Paradise Found, (Pink Flamingo is an old favorite), but I don’t hold out a lot of hope for it. I do highly recommend the Gold Rush, though!

You’re super lucky to live by a David’s! I have a Teavana, but I like David’s a lot more. I also am surprised because David’s actually seems to release new/updated blends more frequently. Paradise Found did sound tasty!

I love Davids, despite not being too horribly impressed with most of their recent blends. But I do love having new teas to try all the time!

Hibiscus love fest indeed!
But yes, thank you for you and De being our review forerunners. I haven’t had a chance to try any yet, but I don’t think I’ll buy the Spring Collection box. I’ll probably do 10g for the better sounding ones. One. haha!
Same my money for Gold rush!

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.
