From DAVIDsTEA

A citrus burst

This blend of high-grown oolong is truly rejuvenating. It’s scented with lemon myrtle, jasmine and natural citrus essences, and the result is light, fresh and uplifting. Hot, it’s soothing and citrusy. Iced, it’s an unbelievable thirst quencher. And infused into vodka, it makes the world’s best martinis. (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Oolong tea, jasmine flowers, lemon myrtle, natural orange flavouring*.

My husband is more of a laid back guy – most teas he can take or leave. He’s nearly as happy with the nameless pu-erh we got at the Asian market (and I found what looked like tooth floss in it!) as the mini cakes I got him from Arbor. But he loves this tea. He says it reminds him of the bottled iced-teas, but with more natural flavors. And for the first time, he asked me to add something to a tea order!

Myself, I’m not quite as enthusiastic about it. The tea leaves did open significantly – I had to switch it to a different teapot because the filter was too small! – but while I may look as much as I want at the pretty green leaves I don’t taste anything but the slightest hint of them. It’s all about the citrus. Despite that, I am impressed by how consistent the re-steeps are. This has lasted me most the afternoon, and the taste has barely changed at all.

Update: Four steepings now, in my 24oz teapot, and it’s still holding strong. I think this thing might actually outlast us!

This really does resteep well! My record for is 5 steeps, but I usually get bored after 3.

We fought that battle too, and lost! After a complete day of it – and a combined 96oz – we just couldn’t keep going. The Energizer Bunny of tea kicked our butts!

I got this tea as a sample in my first ever David’s Tea order. This was also my first oolong tea, and I absolutely fell in love with it. I made that tea sample stretch as far as I could, and then ended up buying some in one of thier stores. I was a little sad about the quality of the tea I got from the store, it was a bit stale compared to what I recieved in the sample. I suppose the teas may sit in the store for a long while, I don’t really know. But, I happily drank it anyway.

The smell of this tea makes me smile. I can’t help it, it’s a big dorky toe-curling smile, and I’m pretty sure I do the whole mmmm-mmmm thing out loud, wether anyone is around to hear me or not.

However, to every love story there has to be a bump in the road, right? I debated for a long time about wether or not to post this. I considered just throwing out the tea, possibly all of my david’s tea, and finding somewhere else to get my fix. But I’m very indecisive, and tea like this is so new to me…Maybe I’m being dumb about the whole thing.

The problem? You see, I found a bug in my tea. I know, it happens. It’s a natural product, bugs are everywhere…they’re bound to be in tea somewhere at some point. Maybe even take it as a sign that it’s a good tea, since even the bugs think it’s yummy. I wish I would have taken a picture, but it didn’t occur to me at the time. I was so freaked out that I dumped the tea and doused my teaware in boiling vinegar about a dozen times.

How do you recover from finding one of the icky-er creepy crawlies in your tea? I’ve since found one in another tea by davids, but it was a different and less freaky bug. I get the feeling I’m over-reacting…but there is.

Mercuryhime

I think I would freak too if I found a bug in my tea. Ugh! Im so sorry this happened to you. I think it might be inevitable that we find the occasional bug mixed in with our tea but yeah. Not pleasant. You’re not over reacting at all.

This was another sample in my order, and gave me the chance to try this hot. I’ve only had it iced from the store. Still really lovely, light, and delicate. The floral and citrus is balanced remarkably well here, I think, as either can tend to be overpowering.

Cold-steeped this from a pitcher pack. It was really refreshing. The citrus was fresh-tasting, sometimes tasting of orange, sometimes like lime. The oolong was stron, smooth, and distinct from the lime. There was a floral element I couldn’t quite place, but after reading the description, I realize was jasmine. It added some complexity to the citrus, making it feel at the same time darker and sharper.

Another trade from Stephanie
Smells strongly of lemon.
Light liquor.
I get Orange as the dominant flavor and some lemon in the background. Very hard to taste the oolong as the citrus flavors take center stage. It’s an enjoyable blend for me. My first time trying a David’s Tea I believe and not disappointed.

Got this as a sample from a DavidsTea order, and I’ve been saving it for a while. There’s a ton of stuff in the tea, more than I expected from 5g. pretty lemon myrtle flowers and a bright citrusy scent. It was really fun to watch brew, the leaves unfurl so beautifully. The tea itself is a pretty gold color with a distinctly lemon flavor. I actually think the second steep was more lemony than the first.

Rebecca Lynn

Rebrewed this like, 7 times. Iced was the most refreshing thing I’ve had in a while.

Kittenna

I’m mixed in my opinion on this one. Will have to try it iced!

I disagree with the bad reviews, I think this tea’s really great. Make sure it has room to expand because it expands a lot! And it’s really beautiful. Would be lovely in a glass teapot.
The lemon myrtle and jasmine do take the forefront and there’s a hint of orange oil. I like the oolong base, it’s light and refreshing. Like the description says, it’s quite rejuvenating. I had received this as a sample and I’ll be purchasing more of it next order.

I really enjoyed the bright verbena and lemongrass high notes, balanced by the earthy oolong second. I think it would be easy to miss the oolong when it is under-steeped, I learned that out of stubborness when I let it steep for a full ten minutes, I was entirely determined to get some body out of it. It ddi, and further brewing made me stick to a minimum five minute steep.

Other than that, the only thing I noted was that if you enjoy a little sweet in your tea, honey was much nicer than sugar for this blend. Something about the lemon makes standard white sugar taste almost metallic – bad bad bad. Honey, however, seemed to blend much more smoothly.

…verbena & lemongrass interesting combination with Oolong. Actually I never heard or even thought about that. Will keep that in mind for coming summer and simply do my own blend.

This tea has always intrigued me, I probably have smelled this in store 10 times, but I never pick it up. I love jasmine and I really like lemon if it is done right, but the smell of this always reminded me of a lemony cleaning product. The smell is so strong. Luckily that didn’t carry over into the taste, but it just didn’t do it for me. I didn’t get any jasmine and the lemon just wasn’t how I like my lemon to be, kind of artificial tasting even though it is all natural ingredients. I will finish my sample of this but will probably not pick this up again.

Love, love, love this tea! It’s wonderfully refreshing. I think it’d be equally as delicious iced, but I haven’t had the chance to try it out yet.

The tea smells strongly of orange, but it mellows out and balances perfectly with jasmine, lemon myrtle, and oolong after brewed. I’ve gotten 5 amazingly flavorful steeps out of this by adding one minute to each successive steep. The orange fades away and the lemon shines through more each time.

I love watching the leaves unfurl as they steep. This tea expands A LOT. One of DAVIDsTEA’s perfect spoonfuls in 14oz. of water looks like:
