From DAVIDsTEA

Worth singing about
We’ll never forget the day Jessie Farrell came into our store looking for lavender tea. The red-headed country star was on a quest. She wanted something comforting, energizing and antioxidant-filled that she could drink all day long. Together, we came up with this pretty blend of lavender, rooibos, coconut and cornflowers. Try it. You’ll understand why she wrote a song about it.

Wow, I really like this. But I’m a lavender person. I litterally make ‘’lavender lattés’’ at work. Although some have mentioned the very faint minty-ness of this lavender, I can honestly say I can taste it. It is there. Very smooth lavender and very sweet coconut. I am so buying a jar of this :D!

I’ve upped my rating for this one. The taste is growing on me. It has a nice creaminess that I enjoy, and it is a great tea for bedtime. I have sleeping issues so I’ve been trying to use lavender to help me wind down and get into sleep mode. This and a lavender candle seem to be helping.

I purchased a sample of this tea, after a sales person at David’s Tea told me how yummy it is. Thankfully!!!!

I’d never have chosen it on my own – flowery tea doesn’t appeal to me – but my goodness is this delicious! I’ll have to go back for more. This is truly delicious. Warm with milk, tastes like coconut milk…

Truly yummy. I love this tea.
This is a standard in my cupboard now. I think this is officially my favourite tea from David’s.

I think this may be my favourite tea. I used to be a Earl Grey junkie but this has changed my mind. Actually David’s Tea has changed my mind about tea and what I like. Jessie’s Tea is great hot or cold. I even have a extra tin of it at work

I am madly in love with this tea!!
I picked it up today from David’s Tea, and I had been looking for something with a good coconut flavour. This definitely did the trick!
I think this will be one I start drinking daily… fantastic!

Smooth and sweet. For my husband and I, this is our favorite rooibos. We love to drink this sort of tea at night, because its soothing and does not have caffeine.

After a few nights in a row of drinking DavidsTea’s “Mothers Little Helper” I finally dipped into the last of the three teas in my “relax” sample box. I don’t know why I waited so long!

I havent tried a rooibos tea I’ve been a super big fan of yet but… but I think I’ve finally found the one. First of all, I lovelovelovelovelove coconut, and this tea does it very nicely. It balances great with the soft lavender, and the rooibos isn’t too overpowering as it’s also paired with a sweeter honeybush.

I like that this tea is sweet, but not too sweet or artificial tasting like some of Davids Tea’s more desserty teas.

I don’t know if this will replace my “mothers little helper” sleepytime tea… as that one really does the job at knocking me out for the night… but this tea is especially great for an after dinner or late night relaxing tea.

Here’s a picture from my night tonight – which consisted mostly of watching movies on the couch and drinking from my tea stash -

I found Steepster a few months after I got into tea. I’ve been reading all the wonderful reviews here and absolutely love the site! But it took me a few more months to realize that I could use Steepster as a way to keep track of what I’ve tried and what I’d like to try.

So … a lot of my reviews are old. Sorry about that.

Jessie’s Tea came in the Sweet Indulgence Sampler I bought from DAVIDsTEA this spring. I love the look of the loose leaves – it’s such a pretty mix and the colors are really relaxing. It brews up to a dark red-brown color. The thing that got me about this tea was the smell, though. It smells like soap dry and still retains that lavender body wash scent when it’s brewed. The taste wasn’t bad, but I couldn’t get over the smell. I tried it again last night with more success – there was less lavender smell, and I loved the way this tea coated the back of my throat and left a pleasant, lingering taste in my mouth. Only complaint was that some sips resulted in a scratchy feeling as I swallowed. These seemed to alternate with the “throat coat” sips.

Not a tea I’d keep on hand, but definitely a nice tea to relax with before bed.

This tea was one of my favorites from last year’s summer of $1 iced teas. I finally got around to buying the tea to try out myself.

I steeped this tea for the maximum recommended time – 7 minutes. Eep! The result was a suprisingly dark colored tea! Like, oversteeped black tea dark. The first sniff and sip of the steeped tea gave a rush of peppermint for some reason, then strong rooibos taste and then a nice creamy aftertaste from the coconut. Not bad, but not the multi-layered taste that I remember. I’m not getting much of the unique lavender flavour that I was looking for. I will have to try again and not let the tea steep so long next time – maybe the other flavours are overpowering it.

I poured the left-over tea I had in the pot over ice with a little sugar. Iced tea should be a little strong anyway – right? I definitely enjoy this tea iced! I find it refreshing and creamy and suprisingly rich.

I was really excited about this tea when I opened the sample packet due to the strong coconut scent. However, after pouring boiling water on the tea I could really smell the lavender and was since I hate lavender I was starting to worry how it might taste.

Sure enough, once the tea had brewed for 4 minutes I could definitely taste the lavender and the coconut seemed like a subtle backdrop. Hoping to give the coconut more of a chance to shine through I decided to let it brew for another 4 minutes and that additional brewing time definitely helped out the coconut. I still got a strong whiff of lavender when inhaling too deeply near the tea, but the creamy coconut flavor is almost enough to overlook that.

All in all, I think this is a nice relaxing tea. There is a perfect balance between the coconut and lavender in that neither one overpowers the other if the tea is given sufficient brewing time. If I could tolerate lavender I know I would love this tea due to its creamy coconut qualities. Since I have such a strong lavender bias I’ll leave my rating blank out of fairness to this tea.
