drank Mango Madness by DAVIDsTEA
1350 tasting notes

Had this iced in-store yesterday. Yum! I have high hopes for this tea and I can’t wait to brew it properly and see how the taste gets even better. I really need to stop getting anything but herbals and iced in-store. I like to only steep my whites for 30 seconds on the first steep, this was steeped for at least 30 minutes.

It was very juicy and fruity, so very refreshing, which is exactly what I needed after four hours of wandering around the pride street fair. The mango was nice and strong, but so was the orange peel, in a not good way. I think a shorter steep time will help with that.

I saw this one a day after I placed my David’s order. Mango is a favorite flavor of mine, and I feel another order coming on :)

Uniquity

I think it’s the July tea of the month..Might not have been out when you ordered. I haven’t even smelled it yet!!

It is, Uniquity, and it is sooo good. I haven’t liked the last few teas if the month (since April, I think), so I was so happy to try this and love it.

Jenn, if you like, I’m actually heading down to the States in August and can snag some for you and send it when I’m over the border, rather then you trying to work up a whole $50 order so soon.

Uniquity

I really like Lime Gelato, but otherwise the tea of the month business hasn’t grabbed me a whole lot. I AM excited for the Canada Day tea though, when I have time to get in and smell it.

Uniquity, can you belive that I didn’t even know that David’s Tea had a flavor of the month? I work out my order before I log onto their site to keep myself out of trouble (well, more trouble). Nothing fules my tea mania like limited edition or monthly flavors. Yish…

ladykittykat, what a kind offer! I really couldn’t ask that of you, and it won’t be too hard for me to work up another order. I truly am greatful for your offer though :)

AND… you Canidians are too cool with your Canada Day tea! I’ll probably just get a wildfire for July 4th. I live in a canyon and some idiot starts a fire every year shooting off illegal fireworks. I’d rather have tea…

We have a bag of Lime Gelato, but we haven’t tried it yet. The Canada Day tea is goooood. It’s going to take a few more cups to decide, but it might be one to get in a tin when this pouch is gone. Nom.

Jenn, it’s no trouble at all, I love any excuse to go to DavidsTea. Really, if there’s ever a tea you love but you can’t work up a $50 order, let me know and I’ll be happy to get it for you. A package of tea to the States usually only costs $5.65.

DavidsTea, for all that I love them, are bad about limited edition flavors. I also hate that they discontinue teas without any warning. Oh well. I do love them so. But yes, there is a monthly tea. Sometimes it makes it into the permanent collection, sometimes it doesn’t.

Yup! Northern Lights!

Had this one iced on Saturday at the Etobicoke mall while waiting to get to the Family reunion. It was great. I bought a bag simply based on the sample.

Uniquity

I need to get to a DT!

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.
