drank Mango Fruit Punch by DAVIDsTEA
905 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! I thought I reviewed this when I made it iced, but I guess I didn’t. The sipdown tonight was when it was hot, but the bf and I have been drinking a pitcher of it iced for the past few days.

The dry smell is very fruity, reminded me of pom tango a bit, but sweeter. Steeped, it is sweet and orange and kinda overwhelmingly so, when hot at least lol.

I must say, this one does MUCH better iced. It was tangy and orangey and mango yum iced, or just cold in the pitcher, as I like to drink it. Hot, it was a very cloying sweet flavor, ack! I didn’t like it very much. When it cooled off, it was more bearable, but still a bit too sweet for my liking, a weird sweet too. So this one is a toss up, as iced, it was delicious, and the boyfriend loved it too, but hot, not a win. I’ll rate it somewhere in the middle as a result. Oh, and I doubt I will pick up more, it is too heavy of a tea and my 25 g bag only lasted one pitcher and one hot cup lol. But it was nice to try it, and very tasty iced, but I will stick with Midsummer Night’s dream as my go to orange tea.

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
