2 tsp (1 sample tin) for 250mL water, bare.
Reminds me of stale Halloween candy mixed with bubblegum, but this sweetness then gets undercut with a stab of hibiscus. Not for me.

This is the first herbal tea that I really see as drink I want to have everyday. I like the luscious watermelon from Davids Tea, but this one has more flavour I think (but had a really low watermelon batch because the sales lady would eat them…). It’s like a liquid popsicle! I really enjoy this tea, and I’m pleased that it has rose hip and goji berries in it too! And another reviewer was right, its really a summer tea. Sweet with just an edge of tartness!
I find that it doesn’t brew well the second time, but maybe that’s just with herbal teas?
Dear Goji Pop,
I saw you today, across the store in your little sample glass, the sign above you said you are part of the spring collection. After all this winter I was ready for some spring! From your sweet scent to your hints of hibiscus, apple, and rosehip, you did not disappoint. I bet you would be a tasty treat iced in the summer too! What was starting off as a long day, was made more bearable by you.
Till we meet again,
PS. I love that you’re purple, my favourite colour!
Day 6 of my do-it-yourself scavenger hunt advent calendar.
I’m not sure how I feel about this one. Yes, it’s good. But…I feel like it has changed since the last time I drank it. It’s fruity, a bit tart. Predominant taste I get is apple, and then “something else”. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I’ve also never had goji berries on their own before so I don’t actually know what they taste like. It might actually be those. Who knows (well, someone probably does…).
Verdict: may buy again, may not.
My friend loved this one. Sadly, even though it was the second time I’d tried it and I was super careful with my water temperature and steep time, I did not. It’s not a bad tea – it’s vaguely fruity and gets better as it cools. There’s just something about the taste that doesn’t hit the spot for me.
Advent Calender Day 14! I can’t believe we are at 10 days until Christmas, December is flying by as always.
I don’t know that I have ever logged this tea before, but it is a part of my collection at the moment. I really love it iced. It has a distinct tart flavour to it, that I find lends itself particularly well to Gin.
The colour is a nice pinky shade. I had it iced last night because I think that is the best way to drink it.
I ordered this tea online a few months back, I just finished my 50g bag a couple of weeks ago. I have to say, this tea is amazing. It makes a delicious iced tea- i have tried it hot but didn’t fancy it much. This is not THE BEST fruity tea i have bought from Davids tea- and when I go back to a store this Wednesday to stock up I probably wont be repurchasing- but it is up there on the list. If you want a really yummy fruity iced tea- I would suggest Mango Madness instead of this, It may cost more but it tastes much better. It has a nice fruity flavor but is also very tart and not too sweet.
Also, I find that this tea tastes and smells the exact same as strawberry lemonade from Teavana.
Probably one of my favourite from Davids so far. I didn’t pick this one up when I first grabbed some of the Spring Collection. I have no idea why I passed over this one!
First off: the smell is phenomenal. I wish this came as a candle. The taste is tart, but juicy and refreshing. Sometimes I find that hot teas don’t quench my thirst, but this one definitely did. It was still tasty as it got colder. The only problem is (as others have pointed out) that I feel like I have to ration it out since there’s two tsp per cup. It is a little pricey, but I appreciate that I can just freely drink it.
I did a cold brew to see how it was iced. Three tsp in a big glass of water (16-ish oz) in the fridge for a couple of hours. A little weak, but lovely and refreshing.
I’ll definitely be restocking this in case it disappears when the Summer collection comes out!
