I was so sad to hear that this tea was discontinued. It’s so good! Such a fresh and light taste that makes you want to go back for seconds, thirds, ninths, etc. The smell of the coconut is so nice and it really does take you to the beach. Bring spring break back!!!!!!

This is a solid black tea. The leaves have a rich aroma which I love. Be careful not to add too many leaves though, the tea can get bitter very quickly so the amount of tea leaves you add is crucial! I like drinking it black and straight up so maybe adding milk would make it less bitter.

Recently I made Earl Grey Gin! It was amazing. I left the tea leaves in the Gin for over 24 hours so it did end up bitter. I’m going to try it again and steep it for a few hours instead of overnight next time but still a great overall flavor! It tasted like unsweetened iced tea. I’m excited to continue perfecting a recipe over the summer!!

Definitely try it for a few hours! I did the same with a raspberry honey black tea – try tasting as you go, I found even after a few hours it got too bitter. Good luck! Drunk on tea :D

I love this tea. One of the best green teas I have had. Such a nice light taste. If I’m looking for a gift for someone I usually buy them this tea and everyone always wants more! Mmmmm

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA
4 tasting notes

As a long time tea lover I’m skeptical about trying just ANY tea, but when the woman at David’s told me this was like peach juice I was in! After ordering it, another employee perked up and asked who was having the juju. I said it was me, and he came over and told me it would be the BEST tea I ever had. I was unsure about his claims but he was RIGHT! Now I am insanely addicted to this tea. I’ve had it iced and I have to say it’s just not as good. I drink it hot straight up and am just the happiest person because of it. It’s so tasty (who doesn’t love peach juice, right?). I have at least 3 cups of this a day and it has been really getting me through school. THE BEST! I highly recommend it.

EDIT! so this summer I’ve been drinking it iced non-stop and it’s been pretty good!! I still like it better hot. I make it in my glass mug and then put it in the fridge while it’s still steeping overnight. I feel like it needs to be steeped for an extra long time if it’s cold to get all of the yummy yummy flavors out.

I didn’t much like it iced, but it’s the only way I’ve tried it!
I will definitely try it hot thanks to this review :D Sounds so good.

Profile

Bio

Most of my childhood was spent drinking earl grey tea and I loved every minute of it. I’ve now been able to discover all kinds of teas, but earl grey still plays a large role in my everyday life. Now I mix it up starting with black tea and moving to green throughout the day. My new favorite is Jungle Juju! Really the best I’ve had so far and I’m on a mission to find something equally as good!

Rating system:
I have to say I either really love a tea or I hate it. Sometimes an inbetweener but if I’m not in love with it I probably won’t have it again.

90-100: A
80-89: B
70-79: C
60-69:D
59 and below: FAIL!

I also like to knit with a nice cup of tea.
