99 Tasting Notes
Man, the summer collection from DT this year so far is can’t miss! Another delicious offering! As I wanted to make this iced, I was a little wary of the mint flavour (I love it in hot teas, but iced is hit or miss), but as soon as I took my first sip, all my worries about that vanished. This is so good. And I didn’t even add sweetener, which apparently makes the melon flavour come out even more (I may try that at a later date, even though I usually do all my iced teas unsweetened). This blend is definitely a win!
Light and refreshing, this tea is definitely a win! I steeped this overnight to make some iced tea and mmmmm. Very peachy, just as the package claimed. I’m definitely going to have to stock up on this one before it goes away, as this is the plain, straight up peach flavour I have been looking for in an iced tea for a long, long time.
This is DELICIOUS, oh sweet gods. It kind of reminds me of Pink Flamingo, which is fine, because I love that blend as well. An excellent substitute for the alcoholic version, and definitely one I will be picking up again. My only hesitation is on the ‘heaviness’ of the tea and how expensive it will be to get a tin. Hopefully not too bad, because this is an excellent addition to the iced blends list.
At first sip, this reminded me of Sleigh Ride, which was excellent as Sleigh Ride is one of my absolute favourite favourites from Davids. Then the second and third sips set in and I realised it tasted a bit off. A couple additions of extra fruit flavours, I suppose. But whatever discomfort I had quickly vanished as I had three cups!
Oh, this one was delicious! Spicy and minty is a gooood combination, I think! I was totally sad to see my cup end – when I have room for another flavour of tea in my stash this one is definitely making the cut and is being included. I’m always on the lookout for greens that don’t cost a small fortune.
Just an average tea for me, I think… I liked the honey taste, but I think there was too much straight rooibos taste for me in this one. I didn’t realise that was part of this blend, and I probably wouldn’t have gone for it, otherwise. Nice caffiene buzz (no pun intended, haha), though, which was appreciated. If I try this one again, I’ll probably add sweetener (which I don’t really like doing, because tea shouldn’t have to be additionally sweetened, in my opinion!)
While I do love strong teas, I’m always wary of hibiscus. That said, I did enjoy this one, even if I probably let it steep a bit too long. I did really enjoy the berry flavours to this, which probably upped my rating. I want to enjoy more mate blends from DT other than Chocolate Rocket, and I think this was a good choice on my part. Definitely will be having this one again.
