Thanks to Wifey_Woman for sending my way… This is the first David’s Tea product I’ve tried and I’m very impressed! Tastes as tropical as it smells when brewing. The coconut is a nice touch, making it sweet without needing to add more sweetener. I gulped this right down (once it cooled, so I didn’t choke on burning water!). I’d love to try this iced… guess I’ll have to try more teas from David’s Tea!

The Purrfect Cup

Glad you liked it!

To order online from DT, you have to order in multiples of 50g. I live close to a DT and can get you smaller samples if you like, I’m always willing to work out a swap and share the DT love! But if you want to order more of this one, I’d act fast, as it’s a spring tea and was discontinued on May 3rd :(. It’s one of my favorites, though!

KeenTeaThyme

Yikes! Thanks for the tips! I saw the summer collection online – I think I will have to acquire it asap. :)

Uniquity

Maybe I should grab some more Goji Pop…I never know things are discontinued until it’s too late.

The Purrfect Cup

I have a sample of Goji Pop guess I should try it to see if I like it so I can order it!

As I understand it, the seasonal teas are discontinued as soon as the next season’s teas are released. Normally, you’d still have a few months of being able to find them online, but goji pop they can barely keep in the stores…it might be worth making an order for.

Thanks for the heads up!

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
