I was SO excited about this one before it came out. Whenever I see ginger or chili or peppercorn in a tea I jump at it – I definitely crave some heat (or at least a bite) in my teas. This was tasty, but overall disappointing. There was a tiny hint of heat from the ginger, but the most predominant taste was hibiscus. Sigh. I like hibiscus just fine, but it’s not what I was expecting from this tea. Iced with some agave it is nice and refreshing, but it’s not the favourite I expected it to be.

If you like a nice bite to your tea, try Mango Diablo. It’s full of sweet mango goodness with a touch of heat. I love it iced, but it’s tasty hot as well.

Good to know! I’ve been curious about that one since it came out, and I’ve heard lots of good things. Glad to hear the heat comes through once it’s brewed.

Oh it does, it’s quite spicy. I bought 100g yesterday based on the smell alone. At first I thought it tasted like spicy hot water with a hint of mango but I tried it again using more of the dry tea and it was tasty, sweet with the perfect amount of heat. I’ve yet to try it iced!

Bio

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
