From DAVIDsTEA

A little rustic glamour
The scent of lavender never fails to evoke the south of France, with its fabulous mix of tiny villages and celebrity-filled beaches and yachts. So imagine yourself in Aix or St-Tropez, leisurely sipping on this smooth blend of rooibos, rosehip, black currants, rose leaves, lavender, raisins, red currants, rose petals and dried blueberries. It’s filled with sophistication and antioxidants.

My study cup for my weekly midterm sigh, almost at a sipdown for this one, probably enough for one more cup. Still tasty and most importantly caffeine free, although I will probably be crazy anxious for this test anyways. See previous notes on this tea.

One of my favourite rooibos from Daivids!

It is a good one! Will have to pick up some more at a later date :D

Okay, I’m 90% sure this came from Invader Zim So thank you! (And if I’m wrong, then thank you to whoever swapped me this!)

It smells really interesting – like the inside of The Body Shop or somewhere like that. Not complaining – it smells great. It’s a bit hard to put my finger on specific scents though.

The rooibos is a strong flavor in this one, and the dried currants, rose and lavender accentuate it. It’s definitely a rooibos tea tisane first and foremost, but the other flavors behind it make it interesting.

It’s interesting. That’s a good descriptor for this tea. Tastes like there’s some chocolate in there as well, though I’m not sure where I’m getting that from.

EDIT: I tweeted this tea, and now @DAVIDsTEA is teasing me about lavender fields in France. This company is great.

Yup that came from me. It has too much red rooibos for me. I like my red rooibos blends to be heavier on the additions. It seems you’re enjoying it more than I did and that’s all that matters!

I’m increasing the rating for this a little, because it’s really growing on me the more I drink it. It never called to me so it took me a while to try it, and then it took me a while to warm up to it but I think this is potentially my favourite red rooibos at present.

Lately I’ve felt like I’ve had my fill of that very particular red rooibos taste, but I think the flavours in this one work marvelously well with it. The rich berry flavour and the slight floral quality are nicely balanced and tame the rooibos a little. It’s very relaxing, and I tend to drink it a lot when taking luxurious Lush baths. Lush and DT are a winning combination.

Uniquity

Yay Lush!

I just wanna know, do the blueberry taste is present? Because I will buy it especially for the blueberry taste…

Jessie

Hmm, the berry taste is very present but I don’t know if I can specifically pick out the blueberries from amongst the currants. Maybe buy a small amount to see if the blueberry is as strong as you’d like.

Uniquity

I wouldn’t say so…David’s Tea doesn’t really have a blueberry tea. That I’ve found.

Maxime-Daniel Friðrikson

Yeah, you’re right… Thanks for the specifications!

Lindsay

Lush and DT are my religion.

Thank you Invader Zim for this generous Sample!
Tonight I decided to do a LONG brew of this Rooibos. I read the reviews first, the discriptions of the rose, lavender and strong red rooibos but I remained unafraid (pretty much). The steep time went 8 minutes…ok…reasonable and not too daring.
The liquor was fairly dark like red wheat beer. The scent is fantasticly sweet like walking into one of those le frou frou boutiques for lingerie that smell like dusting powder, lavender and roses. Of course there was no hint of old perfume flavor or acid…no, no…that would not do.
A bit of sweetening and “Voila” I want to speak French. NO!, I WANT TO BE FRENCH! (Well, maybe I can visit my Nephew in Paris one day at least!). The lavender warms this tea and is a perfect addition with the rose. The average person cry…“Beware!” but don’t fear. This is very good.
I can’t imagine brewing this tea in a weak and insipid manor…yuck! Don’t do it please! It should be a Gerard Depardieu strength brew not a Pepe le Pew oooooow.

Perfect to have with plain cookies or lemon cookies or shortbread.

I had the same issue with my sample of this same tea from Tealish! Interesting. I guess it’s a lavender thing…

ScottTeaMan

Nice pic of you and your Grandson, Bonnie!

Bonnie

Thanks Scot! I take the kids out to tea regularly. This little guy is bipolar and loves time with grandma. Each grandchild has a teaset.

ScottTeaMan

Time with Grandma is important…….& a teaset already! What is Micha’s like?

Bonnie

My son bought each grandson a teaset with a small ceramic teapot and 4 small cups (Chinese no handle). Each in a wooden lined box. The boys are 11,9,7 and love to serve tea. I keep them supplied. Their mom and sisters love tea also. The sets came from Chinatown in San Francisco.

I don’t mind this one, but now I feel like it’s too rooibosy for me. There are nice berry and lavender flavours (and what’s coming off to me as a hint of juniper?) but this isn’t something I’d pick up again.

This tea totally confuses me. I had gone into David’s for a bit of xmas shopping a couple weeks ago and asked the person helping me to recommend something non-caffeinated. He offered me this. I sniffed it and thought it smelled totally minty. I was informed that there’s no mint in this. No way! It’s so menthol-y! whyy? It also smells very blueberry and lavender. So I got half an ounce (actually .6 ounce since that’s the lowest the scale would go) to try at home and solve the mystery.

I’m sniffing this tea again pre-brew. Still seems very menthol-y. Does lavender have menthol in it? Anyway, the blueberry is nice and jammy. I’m not really liking the lavender. It reminds me of the super old dusty tasting herbs my husband refuses to let me throw away. Well I’m not using them, and he doesn’t cook so they’ll just dustier. I’ll toss it all one day… Anyway, I love the smell of lavender, but I’m just not a fan of eating it. Alas. I wonder if husband would like this?

Kittenna

I think sometimes rooibos comes off as menthol-y to me? Or perhaps it’s the lavender.

Why do I like this one so much? It has great complexity! Was trying to decide on an afternoon tea and once I smelled the dry leaves, my mouth started watering! Funny, cuz I’m not really into tart teas, but this one is really rounded out. Fully enjoyed my cup of this while finishing up work.

In other news, I just ordered more new tea!!! My third order in 4 days ;)

Terri HarpLady

LOL, about the tea ordering! I’m trying to behave myself, at least for a little while, but I have found myself starting lists of teas I want from different companies, thinking I can rotate through those companies, ordering from one at a time. Otherwise, I tend to be a binge orderer.

Tealizzy

I couldn’t help it! Plus, I’m way behind most of the folks on here, so it can’t be that bad! ;) I’ve been compiling a shopping list too. I find it so handy that I can put a tea in there that I want to remember based on a great review and then, once I have a few teas for one company, make an order!!

Terri HarpLady

That’s basically the way I’m doing it!

Not sure why i haven’t logged this yet. I maintain a stock of this at all times.
I greatly enjoy this tea, which apparently everyone I know knows I feel this way. lol.
I currently have two 100g tins and a 50g bag courtesy of my recent b-day.
If anyone has interest in the tea, let me know and I will send you some.

My first work tea of the day. Has a nice berry sweetness, with the floral taste coming in at the end of the sip. The rooibos is there the whole way through, but rooibos always is. And I don’t mind!

Backlogged from last-night.

I’ve had this for a couple months now and I kept putting off on trying it because the red rooibos smell was very strong and I prefer a little more flavor added to my rooibos. So, last night upon sniffing my non-caffeinated “teas” I came across this. It didn’t smell quite as strong as usual. So I figured why not finally try it.

The red rooibos is very strong in scent and taste in this one. The berries (actual dried berries in there) didn’t cover up the rooibos, but helped accentuate it. It complimented the rooibos and the lavender very well. The lavender isn’t strong at all, it’s just a hint, the rooibos and the berries take center stage with this one.

This isn’t a rooibos I crave, but it’s good for once in a while.
