drank Green and Fruity by DAVIDsTEA
326 tasting notes

YUM. I managed to get enough out of my sample from TassieTeaGirl for both hot and iced, and both were brilliant! This tea is a sweet and fruity mouthful that is perfect on its own in both hot and iced forms—I honestly couldn’t recommend one over the other. A shorter steep time means a better opportunity for a second infusion.

“Green” tricked me into thinking it was a green tea until I looked it up. Green rooibos! Shut up! How exciting. Also, today was the first time I got to use TTG’s (well.. DAVIDsTEA’s) awesome iced tea method. I’ll never look back.

It’s my sports drink replacement. Rooibos kicks gatorade’s arse. And so good today, it’s so warm already!

MY TEASTORY:

Grandad got me started young, white (a LOT of white) Irish breakfast with two.

I never strayed far from that until the world of T2 Tea came to Brisbane some years ago, and now I don’t know what I’d do without a pantry full of tea options.

These days I prefer to drink my teas straight without sweetener (though I appreciate some black variations shine better with milk and/or a dash of honey/sugar), and I also love a speedy iced tea.

I’d love to make a bunch of tea friends on here, especially those who can talk Aussie teas with me. I’ve recently come back from a jaunt to North America and it was a real hoot to hit up DAVIDsTEA after reading so many reviews! I wish I’d had the chance to get to more stores… but I’m happy with what I got back past customs. See those teas and my local jams in my reviews.
