Backlogging from last week. I had it iced in store and forgot to write a note on here.
I thought this was ok. I mostly get the hibiscus. The second note is kinda a tropical fruit punch. It was ok, but a little too tart for me. I could put sugar but I don’t really like to have to add anything to my iced teas.
I don’t think that I will buy any to have at home.

Dry Leaf Nose: Fruit ambrosia, sweet but light.

Liquor: Clear pink/red liquor that is fragrant from the fruit, but still delicate

Flavour: Fruit mélange is the main note with a sweet-tart taste and cinnamon finish. Refreshing and satisfying.

Just curious – if this one’s not a new tea (which it doesn’t appear to be), why put up a description like this now?? Made me excited until I saw that there were year-old tasting notes :( (And I’m not familiar with it, so it probably doesn’t exist anymore).

DaisyChubb

Krystaleyn – they’re re-releasing it for Mother’s Day :)

Kittenna

How did you find that out?! I use Facebook to be up on things and somehow missed the new teas AND the re-release of this.

Kittenna

Whoops, I see the Mother’s Day stuff. I hate this stupid Timeline layout…

DaisyChubb

I just saw it on the actual DT website actually – I’m not too good at keeping up on Facebook

Yikes! This one is just all around too much. Too much cinnamon, too much hibiscus, too many flavours going on. I’m not really sure what they were going for with this blend, but it really doesn’t work. None of the flavours really meld well together, making it a fairly confusing & unpleasant blend to sip on.

Sipdown #4: UGH Hibiscus explosion is more like it! I can’t believe I gave this such a high rating first time round. I love hibiscus, unlike much of the steepster community, but this one is ONLY that flavour. And then it trails off into nothingness. It hits my tongue so harsh and tart, and then THERE IS NO OTHER FLAVOUR! It tastes like cinnamony water after. Just no. Why are we losing great teas like perfect pear and yet this one is still IN STORES!!! No where near as good as pink flamingo or kanpe.

Today is my second Mother’s Day and definitely better than the last: breakfast in bed, lunch at Earl’s with my Mom + brothers (although being gluten-intolerant means I can’t eat anything other than salad, but hey, it’s the quality time that counts right?), and free tea from DAVIDsTEA!

I went with iced Mamma Mia, since a) I’ve never tried it before and b) it was too warm out to merit getting a hot tea. I thought about adding sweetener, but I guess the stores brewed it extra strong because even over ice it was sweet and delicious. So delicious, in fact, that I mistakenly gave my 16-month-old a sip and she proceeded to slurp as much as possible before I took it away… thus I poured half of my Mother’s Day treat into her sippy cup.

Flavour wise it reminds me strongly of Kanpe, but with a few more flavours going on, probably due to the abundance of ingredients. Makes a deliciously juicy iced tea, sweet enough that it’s almost like juice! Still, I slightly prefer Kanpe, but that also might be the fact that whenever I drink Kanpe I feel good about all the proceeds going to Haiti…

Hot, I loved it. It was very juicy and I thought it would make a refreshing iced tea. But as it cooled off, I fell out of love with it. The hibiscus came on too strong and the cinnamon took it to a weird place for me. I plan to give it another go, but I’m going to keep an eye on the steep time and see if that makes a difference.

Could you taste any of the coconut? I almost bought some, but I’m allergic to coconut so that was a no go for me.

aisling of tea

I couldn’t, or at least it didn’t stand out for me.

Uniquity

DT hates me, I swear. They are way too focussed on the coconut this season…a trend I hope they end before the summer teas!

So I wanted something today, but I couldn’t decide which tea. I didn’t really want to drink a tea I have already, but I didn’t really have a taste for most of the new teas I do have. And the ones I did have a taste for were all multiple steep teas and it’s much too late for that.
I had made the Konami Mystery tea from Adagio, but it turned bitter because I think I used too hot of water. So I dumped it and grabbed this one to make instead.
It’s supposed to be fruity, and while I have serious doubts with anything that has so many different ingredients (especially cinnamon & hibiscus) it smelled so good in the store I figured I’d give it a shot. I had gotten a 2oz bag from a bin on the counter for $3.
The dry mix reminds me strongly of cinnamon apple pie and I don’t really get much else unfortunately except fleeting vague other fruit scents. I added about 2ish tsp, closer to 3 tsp really, to a teaball and dropped it in a cup of a little over 8oz of water. Not exactly sure since it was more than how much it’s usually filled, but not quite up to the top. Lol. Steeped for about 5 min.
The brew is a dark red and still smells like cinnamon apples. Taste wise it’s very tart and cinnamon-y. So much so it overpowers everything else. Which is really unfortunate. I had to add almost a full packet of truvia just to be able to drink it, which I’ve never had to do with a tea before. And while it tones down the tartness somewhat, it’s still very tart. Hibiscus strikes again. Really I should’ve know better I guess.
Ah well. It was still nice to try. And as it cools it’s still nice. Makes me think it could be used for a nice fruity cold drink. I might try that with some of what I have left. But this one it definitely going in the swap bin.

I think I bought this one as part of the same deal and I hated it. It was the worst of hibiscus that I had encountered. I never did try it iced, but maybe that was the fix…

Shadowfall

It was a 2 for $5 deal bin, but since I was buying 3, one cost $3. XD
I try to stay away from hibiscus after trying one tea with it and hearing all the awful experiences people have had.
Honestly, I’m not sure if I really want to try it iced, though it might tone down the tart if it was diluted with ice…Ooh. Maybe make ice cubes out of a strong black tea and pour this over it. /ponders/ That might be tasty. I have to get over this experience first though. Lol!

Tried this one, hoping that the hibiscus wouldn’t kill the cinnamon baked good smell that it has dry. So far I’m not impressed, but I have some cold steeping to see if that saves it. We shall see!

Hibiscus being the first ingredient makes me shudder. But like Splash!, it deserves at least a try. The scent is really not doing it for me dry or steeping – though it was ever so slightly better dry. And by that I just mean not quite as powerful. The cinnamon is coming out the longer it steeps away.

Oh dude. Is that ever a dark colour red/pink. There are an awful lot of ingredients going on here. At the very least it’s caffeine-free (after my 5 cups of black today that’s probably good).

Oh dear. That’s a bizarre flavour. I’m not sure where to start describing it. I knew that many ingredients couldn’t be a good thing!

I did take a second sip, and blech I taste something medicinal. Swing and a miss.

So I went to David’s Tea this morning hoping to try Sleigh Ride cause I hear its good if you like Forever Nuts by David’s Tea also. However they didn’t have it in store yet cause it is part of their winter collection that doesn’t come out till later this week. So the lady that served me brought over a few similar ones that she thought I might like to try, and she highly recommended “Mamma Mia”. It was absolutely disgusting. It has a tart lemony flavour to start and an after taste of like tart berry lemon tree bark. What was even more gross was when the tea cooled down and I decided to give it another chance and ended up gagging.

Yikes! I wonder if the lady actually even tried it herself then…lol
