I’d almost forgotten about this old DAVIDsTEA herbal blend. It’s an old tea friend that tastes really good.

I don’t think DT has carried it for some time. It has Hawthorne berries, eleuthero root, linden, ginkgo, nettle leaves and rosehips. You steep it for 4-7 minutes and wind up with a sweet berry-like tea that has other taste nuances I have a hard time figuring out.

I have no idea how to describe this tea other than… light berry cream with light rose flavor and ground nutmeat. Something close to that. Light and tasty. Oh bother!

I wish this was still available. Caffeine free and delicious isn’t easy to come by now, is it?!

Earlier today I reviewed a Ginger Chai, one of the bottled concentrates by Third Street Tea out of Boulder, Colorado.
For dinner tonight, I decided to use the Chai in my stir fry
along with some soy sauce, sesame oil and garlic.
When my sliced chicken was ready, all nice and caramelized in the Chai sauce, I made a slurry of water, more chai and cornstarch and added this to the pan to thicken into a sauce with the meat.
The whole dish served over rice was a success.
No, more than that, it was super good! The sauce was perfect!
One thing I like about this particular brand is that it’s not overly sweetened and the concentrate is nice and strong. Good for making Chai and good for experimenting in recipes. If you want to try Chai this way, look for a low sugar concentrate or unsweetened.

I can replace the liquid in deserts with Chai and add some to squash soup.

Lots of options.

This is what I do with my cold snowy evenings!

Interesting combination of ingredients!

I would so love to open a restaurant using tea in all the recipes one day. You could be my experimenter Bonnie! :P

I wish they still made this! Sounds lovely!

NO! I would eat all the product! I do love to cook and figure out how to use ingredients though. Just wait, I have some holiday tea goodies I’m working on. I think snow keeps people indoors to COOK and BAKE!

I had this a couple times over the weekend (at the cottage!). Hm. It doesn’t taste bad, which is pretty impressive compared to my attempts at brewing some of the herbs on the ingredients list. It just doesn’t taste particularly good, but that isn’t really what it’s going for.

Just a pretty innocuous herbal-tasting herbal, hopefully with some heart health benefits! I think the hawthorne is pretty prominent in the taste, and definitely in the scent.

Yuck. I could not stand the taste of this tea and threw it out after one sip. It smells nice, but steeped…yuck!

This wasn’t a tea I had chosen for myself, but a gift from tea-clueless dad. I had asked for tea tins, and he bought me tea in tins from David’s Tea.
When I remembered that I had it this morning, I decided that this was the tea for me. I made a pot to share with my partner, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn’t expecting to like it, but I find the taste to be quite nice. It isn’t too overwhelming in taste, but not subtle either. Sort of middle of the road.
It was a very general ‘berry’ taste that I quite like. I’m not sure this is a tea I would drink multiple times a week, but it is one I would likely purchase when I’m finished what I have.

Still feeling a bit dehydrated, I was craving something juicy that would help with that, and this is what my wife recommended. I’m really enjoying it, and it is definitely helping with my craving. Definitely one to keep in stock, it’s juicy and refreshing without being overly tart or sweet.

Tried this in-store, and like the Immunizer I was very pleasantly surprised. It was a bit sweet, but very tasty and easy to drink. Resteeped well. And it did give me a bit of a boost when I needed it. Definitely going to try the rest of the collection now.

I was intrigued by the Wellness teas and wanted to try a couple. This was the first one I picked up and I have to say I was in love at first smell. It’s very fruity, sweet (and a bit tart at the same time), and tasted almost the same as it smells. It reminds me of a favorite childhood candy of mine because of the hawthorne berry (hawflakes – super tasty candy).
