From DAVIDsTEA

Hot gossip

People can’t stop talking about this sensational white-grape tea. Like real grapes, it’s naturally sweet with a touch of tartness. It mingles scandalously decadent white Bai Mu Dan and Cui Min teas with a rich bouquet of mallow blossoms, cornflowers and rose petals. And it’s bursting with juicy tidbits of rosehip and black currant. So salaciously grapey, you’ll just about lose your mind for it.

So, I’m really thinking that I need to curb my tea spending for a while, and finish up some of my old gems. Some of which are a little past their prime, but still entirely drinkable. (Such is the life of a tea addict.) Case in point, this vintage blend from DAVIDsTEA, which even after now I still have a good steepful left.

It has a sweet, fruity scent, but the taste is not as full as I would prefer. A little musty as well, from the white tea (and perhaps also being a little old, but still certainly not a bad cup.) I look forward to finishing it up, and giving it the proper sendoff it deserves (maybe with a cookie to celebrate its life and enjoyment.)

Yeah, I’ve noticed most of the DavidsTeas teas have about 3 listings. One had four!

I got this tea to go once, and it was quite strong and grapey. Grape isn’t really my thing, but I kind of like this. I don’t think I’d buy it, but I got a sample in my last order. The tea looks awesome and smells crazy, like a grape juicebox or something.

I used only half the sample, probably about 1g, for a mug of it. It’s much lighter-tasting than when I got it in store. It’s not as memorable this way, but the grape was a little overpowering for me the first time.

I don’t know. It’s good, probably great if you like grape, but not my favourite.

This was purchased for a friend, but through some mix up it ended up in my bag. It certainly smells lovely, but I was hesitant to try it as it seemed to me to be a “weak” tea.

But I brewed a cup and it was actually quite lovely. Its definitely an afternoon tea, as its not heavy like you’d expect for a morning or evening tea.

Its quite sweet like the grapes on which it is based, but it is not a fruity tea. The rose and black currents in it persuade it not to be a fruit tea.

I have a rather large bag of it and I may purchase it once I’m finished as its a nice tea to have on hand as I see it being a pleasing tea for guests.

there is a reason this tea is rated higher than forever nuts…

it is the best davidstea blend. it’s sad they didn’t keep it around (especially considering the lacklustre amount of white teas they have). it has a beautifully delicate flavour (grapey — but not overly! with a floral/berry twist) that lingers on your palate. pure heaven!

i keep hoping that one day they bring this one back. i would buy a kilo. sigh

This was also one of my favourites, and it is also very good iced or cold brewed. I would be so happy to see it come back.

I tried this in the store today… and I had been told by so many that this tea was amazing, so I think it had been built up in my head. Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve never enjoyed grapes all that much and only have the juice once in awhile…
The grape part really sings through, and I do like the taste, but it was sort of like a regular juice for me, a grape cider if you will. The white tea was hardly there at all, with no balance between the two whatsoever. Overall, enjoyable, but just ok.
Gah! the strawberry white really set the bar high for me. I have a feeling that I will forever be comparing my fruit teas to that now *sighs

Smell: Dry leaves remind me of grape flavored bubblegum, which makes my mouth water. Brewed, it smells like flowers and grape juice.

Flavor: For me, the scent of the dry leaves builds up an unrealistic expectation. Its a strong scent, and then when I drink it, its very light in flavor. I’ve done this at a low temp and a high temp, either way I have not really enjoyed the flavor.

Reminds me of: Liquor reminds me of DavidsTea’s Champagne (also a white tea)

Steeps: 1

Would I buy this again?: No, this tea just isn’t doing it for me.

Other notes: The package says to do 94 C. at 4-5 min. I’ve always thought the liquor came out too strong & dark. Turning down the heat made it taste better, but with a loss of strong flavors. In my opinion the taste is not a good value at $11.75 for 50g. If you are really curious about trying this, I recommend getting a small size in store (25g)

Love this tea, it has the perfect amount of tartness hot, and iced and sweetened it’s even better. Definitely one of my favourite winter teas.

I am so glad I got to try this tea. Grape is such a different flavour for tea, therefore, making it such a unique flavour. This is a wonderful light tea hot or cold brewed! Too bad we won’t see it again, I really have to enjoy my last few cups.

Received this tea as a present, and thoroughly enjoyed every last cup of it!
It’s a light, delicate and fruity tea that goes great with long afternoons on cold days when you’re looking for something a little more mellow and flavourful.
Also? I secretly hum a little Marvin Gaye every time I prepare it…
