From DAVIDsTEA

Spring eternal

Legend has it that Li Ching-Yuen was born in China in 1677 and died 256 years later in New York. His secret? Goji berries. Your secret? This hot pink tea filled with sweet, sweet goji berries, rosehips, citrusy lemon oil, apple, melon, marigold and hibiscus. It’s probably the most delicious longevity formula ever. Which is key, since you’ll be popping it for the next two centuries. Caffeine-free.

Ingredients: Apple pieces, goji berries, hibiscus blossoms, rosehip peel, honeydew melon cubes, marigold petals. With artificial flavouring*.

Sipdown! Tart and tasty, though it’s not quite as good as I remember. Probably won’t re-stock this one for a while, as I don’t think it’s a blend that will be discontinued so I should have nothing to worry about.

On the plus(?) side… I emptied out one of my DT tins, so now I can justify picking up Banana Oolong even more….

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Fjellrev

Yay for emptying a tin!

Kittenna

I know! Infrequent occurrence for me, haha.

Ellyn

How do you clean tins? I always have trouble making sure its all clean, dry, etc. I have taken to using denture cleaner tablets….

Kittenna

Honestly, I just rinsed it really well and now it’s upside-down drying. I figured that Goji Pop didn’t have too much that would linger in the tin, so I’m not too worried. I’m actually not a big fan of tins for the reason that they do have all these little crevices for tea pieces to lurk and not be cleaned out (also, my DT tins totally leak, so much for them being airtight…)

Ellyn

That is pretty much my method…although I did try the denture tablets, ha, was kinda weird when my husband (who has all his teeth) went to buy them…I have had to throw away a few tins due to the smell simply refusing to vacate!

Kittenna

Hahaha, yeah, I was thinking about picking up some tablets for cleaning some of my infusers, and possibly my travel mug. And I have all my teeth as well!

I only have… 5? tins, all of which were free from DT. Luckily I think the most smell-contaminated was the one I had Glitter & Gold in, and I replaced that with…. something else…. and it ended up being ok.

Ellyn

I use the tablets for my infusers and mugs also. They work great!

Kittenna

Good to know! Do they remove all the brown discolouration? (Also, how much do they cost?)

Kittenna

That’s crazy cheap! Thanks :D

Ze_Teamaker

Hmm, I have the same problem with tea tins smells as well. My mom said to use lemon juice with water to get rid of it, but never thought of denture tablets.

Lynne-tea

I always use bleach to get the brown stains out of my travel mugs (as long as they’re metal interior.. I wouldn’t use it on plastic)

A friend came over earlier this afternoon to have tea together and catch up. I had a jug of this cold steeping in the fridge since last night so we opted for that since it’s been quite a warm day.

I think he liked it? We polished off the whole jug, practically. Love this one as is, without any sweetener. I swear there is a sparkly citrus note in there dancing amongst the goji berries.

EEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

There was a snail floating in my tea as it steeping this morning! I am officially turned off! and I was going to make a lemonade based iced tea with this too! BLECK!

Boiling 1 min, 15 sec
MaddHatter

No kidding, the girls were quick to exchange the tea and gave me a free “take-away” tea… So, I can’t be too upset…

Indigobloom

a snail? wow, that is some messed up tea

MaddHatter

The best was the comment from my brother-in-law: “Look who found the prize!” Oh snap!!

Indigobloom

lol extra protein!

Jenn

You are very special indeed! Tea for two and two for tea…hmmmhmm

MaddHatter

LOL! I like it Jenn!

Jenn

Ha! Not every tea comes with a friend to share it with :)

Jenn

P.S. I’ve already carefully sifted through my entire tin of Goji Pop looking for snails. I’m super paranoid now!

MaddHatter

LOL, Jenn… I am sure it is just a one time thing.

YellowBoxFish

Not with DavidsTea, but I’ve definitely had this happen. I worked at a tea farm once, and this is what happens when ingredients are handpicked at a pesticide, insecticide-free farms. Yeah it looks gross, but i find it kinda awesome that it’s good enough for little creatures like snails that have much less toxicity tolerance than us. I might be just a weirdo.

MaddHatter

It was a shock, but my (French Canadian) cousins were a little shocked that I was appalled at the notion of finding a traveller in my tea…

heatherwassing

I love that even though there was a snail in it you gave it a raiting of 95. That’s dedication!

MaddHatter

Oh, it had a rating of like 10… but then I gave it a second try.

I’m sick. Like really, seriously, worthless, coughing a lung up, sick! How does a SoCal vegan girl who drinks at least one glass of green juice a day, and who works out religiously get a f’n chest cold in August?! If I could demand my money back from someone I would. AND to make matters worse, I have an abundance of new teas to try from the lovely LiberTeas and amazing Ashley that I’m too sick to begin trying. Booooooooo!

Well, my complaining aside, I have antioxidant packed Goji Pop to sooth my cough and fortify me for what’s to come. I hate being sick! Gish…

QuiltGuppy

Sorry to hear you’re sick. Have you tried DavidsTea Cold 911? It works pretty well to help you feel better. I can send you some… :D

The Purrfect Cup

I feel your pain Jenn, I was hit by what feels like a cold 2 × 4! I felt fine Sunday morning and then BAM around 4pm felt like dirt: cough, runny nose, sore throat! Ugh! Anyway feel better.

QuiltGuppy I tried looking for DavidsTea Cold 911 and it looks like they don’t make it anymore. :(

Jenn

QuiltGuppy to the rescue! Alas, I do not have any DAVID’sTEA Cold 911 on hand, BUT I would gladly trade you a big o’l bag-o-yarn for a sample if you can spare it :)

The Purrfect Cup

Sounds like a fair and fun trade! Also makes me wish I knew how to knit!

Indigobloom

eeek, feel better soon! xx

QuiltGuppy

@Jenn – I will send it out tomorrow. Of course, you know, if you send me a big ol’ bag-o-yarn, I’m going to send you more than just a sample of Cold911. Hope Camp AJ (Auntie Jenn) went well for you! Maybe your nieces brought the cooties. Kids seem to find some tough ones.

@Wifey_Woman – If you’d like a sample, I can send one your way, too… :)

MaddHatter

poor you feel better soon!

Ashley Bain

:( Feel better Jenn! Sip on some fresh peppermint or ginger tea! Or peppermint-ginger tea. Always helps me a lot.

ScottTeaMan

I don’t drink tea when I’m sick. Also, when I have a cold, the tea is wasted on my poor taste & smell. GWS…….:)

The Purrfect Cup

@QuiltGuppy – that would be great! Feel free to take a look in my cupboard and see if there is anything there you would like me to send in return.

ashmanra

Maybe all that healthy living will help you get over it faster! Hope you feel better soon.

Jenn

Wifey_Woman, I’m so sorry you’re sick as well. I wish you lived close by because I would happily teach you how to knit. I love it :)

Jenn

Taryn!!!!! I’m so glad you’re better sweetie. August is a stupid month to get sick.

Jenn

Erin, Indigobloom, and ScottTeaMan, thank you so much for your well wishes! I feel far less bratty today.

Jenn

Ashley, I’m drinking ginger green tea like crazy. It’s not even good tea, but I can’t really taste it anyway. I want to try your GOOD teas!

Jenn

Ashmanra, my husband eats total crap and never gets sick. I’m begining to think that there may be some health promoting ingredient in Oreos.

The Purrfect Cup

@Jenn I’d travel for lessons. :)

DaisyChubb

I’m sure there are enough preservatives in an Oreo to make you live longer at least… that’s science right? Science? I have a fine arts degree… anyways get well Jenn!

Jenn

DaisyChubb, stupid Oreos! You can’t argue with science, right?

Thank you Courtney for this sample. :)

Goji berries are not something I have had many times but I do remember experiencing their sour almost cranberry like flavours before.

It’s been such a long day at work and all I want to do is wind down and relax. Something fruity sounds nice and so does the idea of drinking something pink (which this claims to be on the packet).

In raw form this tea consists of large dried fruit pieces, red goji berries, dark red hibiscus petals and little shrivelled yellow petals that look like marigold. Looking at the ingredients list that covers just about everything so you can just about see it’s entire contents from looks alone. It’s nice when that happens. As the pieces are large they look like a mix between pot pourri and trail mix.

In scent this is fruity and sweet with high apple and citrus notes with a touch of something floral. It’s very yummy and juicy smelling. I used to have a lip gloss that smelled similar.

Once steeped this tea is light pink (the same colour as watermelon juice) and has a very gentle fruity aroma with a slight bitter tang.

Yummy. I can taste the melon and the apple :) I love melon. The consistency is light and refreshing with natural fruity sweetness and just a touch of sourness in the after taste. Thankfully the hibiscus is on the light side. While it’s sweet it’s on the lower levels of it but perfect for those of us without a sweet tooth (per say).

I just thought…I don’t crave puddings a lot of the time…I crave the tea form of it instead. If only there was a cheese and onion tea to take away my love for crisps (chips). A moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips…I need to remember that.

Ok back on course. The more I drink the stronger I can taste the melon and apple medley which is at the perfect balance for me. I imagine this tastes amazing as an iced tea, alas I only had enough to sample one teapots worth with (I’m not complaining…if Courtney wasn’t as wonderful as she is I would never have got to try this). Just making a mental note that if I am ever lucky enough to get my hands on some more I will definably try it iced. Maybe even in a slushy style (crushed ice).

The goji or hibiscus is coming through a little more now to create more of a sweet and sour fruit punch. It’s something that I would no doubt love to try again and those melon mad fans (like myself) need to try this.

Look at me I have waffle on a bit, so I will leave it there. I shall just sit back and watch Star Trek – Deep Space Nine.

Star Trekkkkkk! <3

Shmiracles

whoooooooo!

KittyLovesTea

I <3 Star Trek. Five Minutes ago I worked out I have seen at least one episode from each Star Trek version (crew) today. Nothing beats watching Star Trek with a pot of tea.

Tealizzy

Yay for tea and Deep Space Nine!

Courtney

I actually didn’t keep this in my cupboard initially after trying it hot. Then one day I had it cold at the store and it’s been in my cupboard ever since! I’m glad you enjoyed it :)

So, I made this as a Soda today…

I brewed up 2 tsp. in boiling water, but only used about and ounce and a half or two ounces of water, so it was very concentrated. After letting it cool to about room temperature, I mixed it with a full can of club soda.

Actually, it was pretty good. I think maybe I enjoyed this tea as much this way as I do iced or a hot beverage. The melon flavour really shone through, but the hibiscus was quite tart and it didn’t seem to mix too well with the carbonation of the soda. It was an odd experience.

Anyway, I don’t know if I’ll have anything to add tomorrow. It seems like I’m going to have a fairly busy day: I’m going on a first ‘date’ (though, not a date – since we both agree that dates are too high stress with too much social expectation to live up to for either party) with someone I met using an online dating site…

Originally I was just looking to meet a few friends here in Saskatoon (since I know my mom used a dating site when she was looking to meet people, and it worked very favourably with her) but this was actually a nice and unexpected surprise. So, I hope it goes well – and fingers crossed?

I think I’m going to bring him some peppermint tea, since he said he finds my tea obsession “cute” (I don’t think he understands just how much I love and drink tea – and even that is nothing compared to many of you all) and he was complaining about getting headaches – which peppermint tea is good for. Also, since he doesn’t drink tea often it’s a good way to sort of ease him in to it? I don’t know – what do you think? Cute or corny?

Fjellrev

First off, best of luck on your “date”! That must be simultaneously exciting and nerve-wracking. I’ll cross my fingers for you. I joined a dating site when I moved here for the same reason too, but nothing ever came of it. No meet-ups or friend-making. Too many dirtbags. And that totally isn’t corny. If he’s cool he’ll appreciate it. If he thinks it’s corny, then he’s an assclown. :)

And we’re totally on the same wavelength on this tea. I have some cold-brewing in the fridge right now. Plus I love it as a tea pop.

keychange

definitely thoughtful of you. Good luck!

ashmanra

Sounds like fun! It is nice that he finds the tea obsession cute instead of frightening. I think some people I know acre just plain bewildered by it, but I manage to lure most of them to the dark side. LOL! BTW, my dad was stationed at Roswell in the late forties! :)

sweeTEApie

Tea soda… I’m SO intrigued!

Roswell Strange

I’m still working on mastering proportions of soda to tea and finding the perfect ratio. I’ve also tried cold brewing my tea straight into the club soda but found that it was fairly flat by the time a significant amount of flavour had been leached out of the dry leaves.

I remember now why we got a tin of this, despite is being a heavier tea and thus more expensive per cup.

Because it is gorram delicious.

My wife had a Moment last night when she got home from work and actually drank all three teas I had set aside for her from my coldbrews. Bear Trap disappeared in a matter of seconds! She liked it more than this tea, but I disagree. I love Goji Pop.

It’s melon-y and fruity and light and refreshing. It’s summer in a cup and just plain wonderful.

Fjellrev

Yes! I love this one too. I’ve been neglecting it as of late, though, trying to finish up other cold brew teas.

aisling of tea

I had thought this might be moved into sipdown territory, but NOPE. This is love and I will always refill my tin lol. Besides, every once in a while, in the middle of sipdowns, you deserve a tea that you absolutely love. Especially if you’ve had a row of bad sipdowns and need a reminder of why you love tea XD

Fjellrev

Haha exactly. I feel like I’m forever working on teas I don’t particularly care for, so you’re right, you got to take a break and enjoy the ones you love.

Lynxiebrat

Aisling…exactly! a row of bad teas can be totally depressing, and definitely worth a pick me up!

aisling of tea

Exactly! And let me tell you, after some of the teas I’ve had recently (Mango Madness and Licorice Twist, I’m looking at you), I needed a pick me up tea. Goji Pop and the Champagne I’m drinking now are definitely helping with that!

…that and finding out that De is taking me to the Zoo on Sunday!

Lynxiebrat

Weeee! As soon as the weather is consistantly warmer here, I want to visit the zoo, hopefully with my sweetie.

We’ve got a membership and now that we’ve moved, we’re a mere 15 minutes away. It’s awesome.

Gosh darn it I love this tea! Only ever drank it iced. Well, ok, one time I wasn’t patient enough for the ice to fully melt so I did get a taste of it warm but it doesn’t count. I ran out a while back and I waited — I don’t know why because it’s my go to “juice” tea. Ok, who am I kidding, it is my only juice tea. It is so good that I stock no others. God, is that bad to admit?

So anyway my order came and I am so pleased to have this in the house again. I don’t know what I will do if they ever pull it. I mean, even if I buy several 250 gram bags, I will still run out at some point. That’s how much I like it.

I don’t even know what to say in a tasting note. Because really, how do you talk about love? Talking about love is like dancing about architecture. :)

But ok, since someone who hasn’t had this might read this I shall give it a go. The dry leaf is chunky because of all the dried fruit so you need a lot which would make it a bit expensive. It tastes like melon. It’s red from hibiscus but you can’t taste hibiscus — at least I can’t. The second steep gets a bit more tart but the first steep is all melon and goji berries. Which is odd because apple is the first ingredient on the list.

Good enough?

Fjellrev

This stuff is totally awesome, for sure!

keychange

How do you take this one?

Nxtdoor

About one heaped teaspoon of sugar to a 16 oz glass. I was just thinking that I might cut back a bit on that, last time it was quite sweet. A generous handful of ice cubes. I do not, however, fill my glass with ice cubes like they do for you at DAVIDs.

keychange

Oh ok. Do you like this one hot, also?

Nxtdoor

Dunno, never tried.

Nothing like a refreshing cold-brew after a hot, sweaty run! I like the citrus bite that this tea has to contrast the mellower berry, apple, hibiscus flavors. Raising the rating just a little because it’s growing on me. Maybe it just tasted better because I needed to rehydrate. :-)
