From DAVIDsTEA

It’ll work every time

Seriously, this might be the best way to stop a bear in its tracks. They love berries, and this tea is full of them. The aroma of black currants, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries is totally irresistible. Plus it’s calming, which is important when taming wild animals. Just don’t try to take it away from them.

Ingredients: Elderberries, apples, rosehips, blackcurrant, raisins, strawberry leaves, lemon verbena, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, blueberries, papaya (papaya, sugar), natural and artificial flavouring.*

Sweet and tart! The black currant and raspberry seem most prominent. I think I might sweeten the next cup I have.

I’ve pushed the like button on this 3 times, & for some reason it isn’t taking it. :)

I was having a little bit of trouble with that yesterday too! :-)

Made a pitcher of this last night to chill overnight in the fridge, and it is delicious! I kept a careful eye on the brewing time (I brewed one pot for 4 minutes, then resteeped the leaves for another 5) due to seeing bits of hibiscus in the mix, and added a bit of sugar. The hibiscus is behaving, thank goodness, and it is just a wonderful cup of tea! Just what I’ve been craving for a few days.

Edited to add: Three times now I’ve caught Pekoe (our cat) (and yes, she’s orange) dipping her paw in my glass and licking it clean of tea. So, you know, favorite tea of cats and humans alike! >.>

Pekoe approved, eh?! ;) She sounds so cute!

She’s a sweetie. Crazy as all get out, but a sweetie.

I made this last night and caught my cat trying to drink the dregs out of my mug when I was done. He loves herbal tea!

Pekoe does too, now Bella (short for Rosabella, not Twilight, darn it!) will kill a person for a sip of earl grey. We have weird cats. Weeeeeird tea-loving cats.

My kitty, Tango, is really attracted to anything with mint in it. He’ll appear out of nowhere for it!

Catnip is a form of mint, our girls go crazy for it too. Especially DT’s new Le Digestif, which actually has catnip in it.

MaddHatter

Well, Bear Trap is intended to “tame wild beasts” and I guess cats and children fall into this “family”?

Kittenna

Definitely must keep in mind to try this one iced and maybe a bit sweetened. I am certainly not caring for it hot :(

Another sample from Bonnie. I like this one much better than the chocolate cake from David’s. Nice and sweet with some pleasant tartness (I’m a BIG fan of sour things, Sour Patch Kids are by far my favorite candy). Fresh, juicy berry flavor…I’m sure this would be great iced. Thanks Bonnie!

I got this sample thanks to momo!

Steeped, it looks like cup of grape juice. It’s a nice reddy-purple color. Taste-wise this tastes almost exactly like the Slow Swing without the green tea base. For me, the tartness and nondescript fruitiness completely miss the mark.

(So pretty much all of this http://steepster.com/teas/serendipitea/39498-slow-swing applies here)

I’ve just had really poor luck with fruit blends lately.

Nom. This is exactly what I wanted tonight. It’s one of the best fruity teas I’ve ever had. Lots of fresh raspberry flavor with a slightly sour lemony background flavor.

I need to try this again. I love raspberry and one of my very few complaints with DavidsTea is that they don’t really have a raspberry tea, the Raspberry Nectar isn’t nearly raspberry-enough for me. I’m biased against herbals, so when I tried this one, I was already kinda set against not liking it. But it sounds like I definitely need to give it another go, maybe iced!

Uniquity

Lol, I just warned you off raspberry enctar in another post, LadyKittyKat. I don’t really get a strong raspberry flavour from my tin of Bear Trap, but it depends on the scoop, I know. It is quite yummy though!

Kristin

Interesting! I had a lot of raspberry in my cup. I’ll comment if the next cup is different.

Now, my wife made french toast with this once and it was beyond delicious…so many herbals do have a purpose XD

A very large fruity looking mixture with a sweet, berry like scent but also very herbal and dry.

Colour once steeped is red and the same sweet tart, herbal berry aroma.

Taste wise it matches the smell, first elements are herbal and dry before a tart/sour mixed berry flavour with touch of sweetness carries into the after taste. It’s not as fruity as I was expecting/hoping and the herbal taste is too strong in comparison. The hibiscus is rather strong too.

Not quite to my taste but it is drinkable. Something I wouldn’t wish to stock.

Boiling 8 min or more

I guess this tea is closest to fruit loops for me lol. I had a fruity craving after I made pad thai for dinner tonight. BTW I love Blue Apron. I think it’s stateside only but they send you fresh ingredients and recipes that are pre-portioned. My first box arrived yesterday so tonight I made my own take out and it was more delicious than actual take out.

Anyway back to work because today every time I try to study, I get distracted by looking at hair color ideas on pinterest.

What an interesting premise for a company! Seems delicious.

Ana

Yeah, it’s an interesting idea that works out for a lot of people who are married to their job and don’t have much time to shop. I commute an hour each way for school and even then I’m on campus for most of the day so when i’m home I don’t want to grocery shop. This has definitely made it easier for me to keep eating healthy.

Cold Bear Trap makes me happy. It’s like berry punch, only not so sugary sweet. It’s like FRESH berry punch. Yum.

It is one of my favorites too! Plus a little seems to go along way with this one….I find I don’t need to completely double the amount of tea even though it is being iced.

The first thing you notice about this tea is how incredibly juicy and berryish it smells. YUM!
The second thing you notice is that because of all the berries, it’s pretty heavy and therefore kind of expensive. Especially considering that it’s most delicious iced, because it takes so much more tea to make iced tea.
At any rate, I’ve done this both cold brewed and hot/concentrated/dumped on ice. I got more flavour out of the latter method, and found it much better that way. I added a little bit of sugar as well and it REALLY brought out the berry flavour. It was absolutely delicious and really got me through the day at work. It was so packed with flavour it was like drinking actual JUICE, like berry juice. It’s not often you come across a tea/tisane with that much flavour.
There’s also the fact that on the website, the picture for this tea is a really cute bear. That may have played a key role in me taking a hard look at this tea in the first place…
I will repurchase this when the weather turns warm next year, but until then my bag is finished.

Another sample from Bonnie! I’ve been saving this one to try it iced, it just seemed like one of those teas that would be perfect iced. It’s getting in the 80’s and 90’s already in Texas. I made this yesterday.

MMM I was right! This is great iced! All the berry flavors combine together in this delicious way without none really overpowering the other. I added just a bit of honey and it made it even better. It only seemed appropriate for something titled Bear Trap. I may have to buy this next time I place an order. Now that it’s finally heating up, I get to try all of the teas I love iced. It’s like a whole new world cue Disney music

Bonnie

You be funny!
