One of my absolute favourites. It’s sort of sweet, a bit of sour, a little minty at the end. Perfect!

Summer love. This citrusy-mint tea is refreshingly magical, with sweet apples, cool spearmint, tart gooseberries, orange oil, and petals of marigold and rose. But before you take a sip, we should probably warn you that it’s a bit of a love potion. For some people, it seems to turn regular summer evenings into dreamlike nights of romance and enchantment. Ice it and see what happens. Caffeine-free.

The was one of the teas I bought on my first visit to DAVID’s. Again, I purchased way too much, but I’m almost through it now.
Had this cold brewed for the first time. First notes were a powerful orange, but about half way through the gooseberry started coming through. Most of the after taste is that pleasant sour of gooseberries. We had a gooseberry bush when I was growing up, but ever since we moved when I was eight I haven’t really heard much mention of them so I was really excited to see them listed as an ingredient. Funnily enough, I’ve never really picked up on them in this tea before now. I may buy more of this eventually, but after having it in my cupboard for about 7 months now, I’ll be happy to have it gone for a little while.
Flavors: Orange, Pleasantly Sour
A refreshing taste even while hot. This tea is one that I enjoy on a spring morning. It reminds me of popsicles and hard candy. Can’t wait to try it cool. This tea reminds me of the teas one would serve to non drinking tea guests, making them guess what they are tasting before telling them it’s tea.
Books recommended for this tea are: In the Comfort of Strangers by Ian McEwan, Once Upon A Quincenera by Julia Alvarez.
This is delicious. Refreshing and light, with a very sweet spearmint flavor. I prefer spearmint over peppermint any day and this is not exception. I think my next move is to ice this as I think it will be equally good as hot. I will be reordering this when I’m out.
Flavors: Apple, Floral, Spearmint, Sweet
This was another tea that I have been very stoked to try, so I picked up a sample size at David’s the other day.
Dry it smells very citrusy. VERY citrusy. I guess that is to be expected when the description of the tea is “citrus-mint” though! I made this tea cold by putting a tea bag in a water bottle with some ice, and then I left the bag in the whole time I drank it.
I liked this tea. I didn’t love it. I still found the citrus to be quite strong when I drank it, and it was a little too citrusy for my taste (kind of sour!). It wasn’t awful though. It was definitely a refreshing drink! I didn’t get any strong mint flavors from this.
So to finish… I would drink this tea cold again, but it definitely doesn’t compare to teas like Magic Dragon or Ginger Pear cold. I have enough left to try making it hot, and then I will decide if I want to purchase more of this. As of right now, I am content with not having a large tin of this on my shelf.
Also, on a side note, those little tins that come in the David’s Tea three packs of tea (like the Black Tea Collection, for example) are the perfect size for picking up enough to sample at home. I will definitely be using this method all the time!
