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*.

Dear Goji Pop,
You are so yummy, just like bubble gum,
Sometimes you’re sour, but mostly you’re sweet.
Will you marry me?

So excited to try this one! It’s on the list for the next time I’m really productive at work or deserve a treat for some other reason!

AliPants

Oooh I’m excited for you! Don’t oversteep it – the hibiscus can get quite bitter!

Kittenna

Thanks for the tip! I’m notorious for steeping herbal teas FOREVER because often you get extra sweetness or different flavours out if you do that. And I like my teas strong, usually. My boyfriend was already taunting me with Goji Pop as he bought it a week or so ago and loves it (and he lives two provinces away, so I can’t mooch some off him!)

AliPants

I’m like that with my herbals too! That’s cute that he made you want it, I wish my boyfriend drank more tea!

Kittenna

My boyfriend is working on weaning himself off pop and sugary coffee in favour of tea. So impressed; hopefully it continues! At least he likes it :D

AliPants

That’s so cute, you guys can share tea recommendations now! maybe that day will come for my boyfriend. I don’t think he’s realized yet how bad the pop/coffee combo is. I keep trying to get him to drink tea, but he just won’t! If he does, he likes it packed full of sugar anyway so he might as well be having pop!

Kittenna

Haha, unfortunately the boy doesn’t have very discriminating tastes sometimes (i.e. he likes most things), but hopefully he can report to some degree on what he tries! And then bring me some when he visits in a month :D Admittedly, I don’t know how much sugar or milk he puts in his teas… I know ones like Earl Grey get a lot, but he claims he’s trying to drink them without sugar. Cream of Earl Grey is better, I think, and I would hope he’s not sweetening something like Goji Pop, as I found it quite deliciously sweet at the end!

AliPants

sweetening goji would be tragic. more tragic than boys with discriminating taste.

Day #8 of 24…..

This sample comes to me from aisling of tea. I can’t believe I did not get around to trying this earlier. Maybe I was suffering from hibiscus worry…… Thank you so much for our swap eons ago that definitely fed my David’s Tea addiction! Now they ship for $5 for orders under $50, which so helps in just putting in an order to try things, in comparison to the $20 it used to be…..

This really is pretty good. It really does taste a bit like juice or a fruit lemonade. I can see kids really liking this one! A gateway for the younger generation……?

Mug method with a 7 minute steep time and twice the blend.

I have been away from my tea stash for 4 days now, while visiting the rents in blazingly hot Indiana. I am going to drink a million gallons of tea when I get home to 18 degree Vancouver on sunday night!!

So anyway, of the 5 DTs i got my mom for Christmas, this is the last remaining pouch. And since I’m now getting sick I can justify a cup of sweet goji berry goodness. Also I haven’t had this tisane in over a year so this is quite exciting and reminiscent of my first taste of crazy tisanes. Verdict: still good!

Go white sox!!

K S

Hey, at least you headed back before the humidity picked up to tropical levels. Hopefully Isaac dumps a good amount of rain on us in Indiana this weekend.

Lindsay

Yeah I hear rain is in store for the weekend, and I have no complaints. I don’t think I can handle 90 fahrenheit anymore, lol.

I’m having the very last of this iced. I think it’s much better than hot! This would make a great staple tea during the summer. It requires a bit too much leaf for me to justify purchasing this, but I am so glad I got to try it!

Ever do that thing where you start watching a horror movie by yourself during the day and you’re like, “Wow, this isn’t even scary,” and by the time you finish it, it’s nighttime and suddenly every creak you hear and shadow you see is obviously some monster that is going to make you its meal?

Okay, well, with me it’s a book (well, The Walking Dead graphic novels to be specific), and I’ve been powering through them (and also a few pots of black tea to keep me going) all day. Suddenly it’s 11 pm and the caffeine from the black tea has me jumping at everything (I scared the crap out of my cat, poor thing). I need a nice, tasty herbal to calm my nerves so here I sit with a nice cup of this tea. It’s fruity and reminds me of summer and definitely helps me keep my mind off of flesh-eating zombies. (Seriously, who knew that things that move .0008 miles per hour and probably can’t even master a set of stairs could be so freaky?)

Rating: 70
Steep time: 5 mins.

For me, the Walking Dead comics were more OMG, gimme the kleenex, than they were scary. Glad you’re enjoying them. :)

Shmiracles

hey i plan to read those soon!!!
(cuz i’m tired of everyone telling me i’d like the show. and then i tell them i tried the show and didn’t like it. and they look disappointed. but if i read the graphic novels then i’ll have an excuse to disappoint them instead of it just being me inadvertently implying that they have bad taste.)
but ‘read those soon’ is maybe an exaggeration because first i have to finish the ENTIRE green arrow catalog. and though i’ve gotten pretty far, that’s still a lot.
but i do have all the books ready and waiting in the wings.

I received this tea as a little sample with my DavidsTea order… twice. So, I figured it was a message, and who am I to stand in the way of destiny?

It’s an herbal/fruit tea, so technically, there is no tea at all. It is, however, one of my favorites so far. (Well, definitely behind Forever Nuts, which reigns supreme as the top herbal tea in this household.) The first thing I noticed was all of the chunks of fruit and berries that go into this. When it begins steeping, the cup almost instantly turns purple-pink. I let it go for five minutes and wish I had stopped it a bit sooner. It’s a very pretty purplish color right now, but it’s also quite tart. The fruit mix is wonderful! I think there’s a tad too much hibiscus, but other than that, the fruit meshes really well together. It’s definitely citrusy. It’s a perfect pick-me-up for after work, but before bedtime.

I got this as a sample to… but have been hesitant to try it. I think I will tomorrow!

QuiltGuppy

About halfway through I added some rock sugar to it and it greatly reduced the tartness. It’s pretty good!

I love Goji Pop! It’s so juicy and sweet. I love love when this is a TOTD so I can fill my $1 tumbler. For some reason I’ve never gotten around to bringing some home, probably because I already have a bunch of iced teas that I love. One day though!

Teavangelical

goji pop vodka! it was the best thing i’ve ever tasted.

Had a cup of this hot (on like Tuesday! Only just remembered I had this… Ugh. I do dislike this week) from my advent calendar tin. I really like it! Very goji berry-ee, and the apple and melon are a lovely base. No bitterness whatsoever from the rosé hip or hibiscus, what a win! Going to use the rest of my sample for an iced cup. Very nice.

I did accidentally leave it for about 6mins, not quite as long as it says below ( another iPad hiccup).

I have a love/hate relationship with tea depending on how it is brewed. If brewed well, it is delicious, full of flavour and fruity and not even needing sweetener (although I do love it with some agave.)

If its brewed badly, this can taste . . . just gross. And I also find that if you add sugar it ruins it. Luckily tonight I remembered all of this and brewed it really nicely and perfectly, and with a dash of agave. A litre later, I’m a tea-logged happy girl.

I have been waiting all month to cold brew this one, and I finally got the opportunity… I am however a little disappointed. The flavour is rather weak, despite the fact that I cold brewed for almost 24 hours… Maybe I did not put enough in (about 6 heaping teaspoons for my takeya pitcher) so it could be user error…
Anyways I get a very different taste coldbrewed then when I drink it hot. Hot, i"d say without question that the overwhelming taste I get is sweet-tart. Cold, I get much less of the goji and much more of the melon… it almost tastes like watermelon. It is still wonderfully fruity and super refreshing, but it was definitely not what I was expecting. I’m going to leave my rating where it is however, because its a true rating of this tea when I brew it hot!
