drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA
19 tasting notes

It seems like this tea is a, “love it or hate it” kind of tea.

When David’s first introduced teas geared towards children, I got really excited. I was looking forward to child-friendly flavours and fancy teaware (which is adorable!). Swampwater piqued my interest just from it’s name and delicious smell. The clerk at the store insisted it was amazing. I’m a huge rooibos fan.

I brought it home and tried it. I was not expecting the colour. Something that looks like it was scooped out of a backyard pond. The flavour was underwhelming. I put it back in the cupboard and tried it again two months later. I added more leaves and upped the steeping time. Still no dice. There was still no flavour.

Cute teaware and stickers aside, I think I’ll stick to less gimmicky teas next time.
