From DAVIDsTEA

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.

Tea related: So even though I won’t be able to buy tea for a while i still go and look around on websites of things I want to buy; I don’t know why I torture myself. Then I decided to go looking around on 52 Teas to see what Frank has been coming up with. Then I saw it……… Smaug tea. IT LOOKED SO AWESOME!!! Not only is it have Dragonwell tea, but it has cayenne pepper in it. The whole tea flavor profile in general just sounds awesome. Then that sad moment, when you go to insta buy it…… and it’s sold out. URGH!!! Hopefully it will get revived. (
Tea Review: I deiced to have this the other night. It was one of the samples that came with my Christmas sale order.

The dry-leaf was very pretty. It was for the most part all yellow color with flecks of red rose petals. It smelled almost like orange blossom tea; though that’s not what it is. I also have no idea what a gooseberry is, but it sounds good.

The taste of this tea is nice. It made a nice yellowish, pink liquor and smelled like citrus tea. The flavor how ever doesn’t taste like orange blossom tea. It reminded me a lot of Sweet Tarts or Spree candies. It had a nice berry-citrus taste with a pleasant tart after taste. I added a pinch of agave, but it really wasn’t needed. I did do another steep, and it was ok. It was more like flavored water, but in a good way.

It should be noted that while this tea has spearmint, it doesn’t really come up much. I actually forgot that it was even in there until the last steep; were it was easier to detect. It seems that instead of really adding to the flavor, it adds a nice vapors texture to the tea.

Overall I would recommend this tea to citrus-fruity tea lovers or anyone who likes Sweet-Tarts and Spree candies.

I ended up receiving this tea as a sample after they forgot to include them in my iniitial order, then sent me 6.

The dry notes are fruity & citrusy. However on the package it says nothing about citrus.
Once brewed its much the same.
The taste is fruity, very citrus & sweet. Also kind of medicinal. There is also a strange after taste, I can’t figure it out for the life of me.
The notes on here say there is mint? I’m not getting it, but maybe its what is reminding me of the medicinal taste.

I don’t know how to rate this tea, I like it, but its kind of strange.

Boiling 8 min or more

Thanks Shmiracles! The aroma of this one is lovely. Fruity and minty. The flavor is pretty magical too. It’s sweet, fruity, citrusy, and minty. It’s a nice herbal. Thanks for letting me try this one!

I’ve been hemming and hawing over this one for a few days. Might as well give it a go since the pitcher is almost done.

Earlier this year I tried this tea hot. I loved it. Anything citrus appeals to me, and that touch of mint was very nice. This is one of the rare teas that I don’t feel the need to add milk or sugar too, so it makes a great travel tea that I can make up easily in my hotel room.

A few days ago, I made a pitcher of iced tea with this. I’m having a love/hate relationship with it. I still really enjoy the citrus notes, but now I don’t like the minty thread through it. Yet, I find it really refreshing to drink, even though I’m always taken aback by that first sip. I’m wondering if it’s because my last two pitchers of iced tea were very fruity sweet, and this one isn’t. It’s only very lightly sweetened this time because that pitcher of Luscious Watermelon was a bit much. It feel though that more simple syrup would make the Midsummer Night’s Dream iced tea worse.

I only have enough to make one more mug so I’m going back to hot for this one. I haven’t decided if I like it well enough to buy it again, but I’m glad I got the chance to give this a try.

Smells like grapefruit? Hmmm, interesting.

Now I know that Swampwater is supposed to be the tea you brew for kids, but, no sooner had I taken this out of the fridge—after brewing it for 10 minutes, straining, then placing it there to cool—then my 18-month-old hold her sippy cup out to me. She’s probably thirsty and I prefer to fill it with cold tea, instead of juice, anyways. I hand her the full cup and she literally starts drinking without stopping for a breath! Either she’s really thirsty of she really loves this tea. Probably a combination of both! Looks like this will be in full rotation this summer as I brew it up for my daughter to drink.

Now, what do I think of it? I find it’s a really flavourful brew, especially when you just leave it for a bit, then strain and chill. I could see it being a little on the weak side if you brewed it then poured it over ice, so to get maximum flavour I recommend steeping it for 10+ minutes, straining it, then forgetting it in the fridge for a day so it reached peak coldness.

Trust me on this one, have I ever lead you astray before?

Procrasti-rating! I just moved home for the summer, which is sad because I am no longer a ten minute walk from DAVIDs! (although this is probably a good thing for my wallet…) and need to unpack all of my stuff (…sigh…). Anyways I now have a fridge big enough to accommodate my iced tea pitcher so I decided to give this one a try.
I cold steeped this for probably about 18 hours (kind of forgot about it). It is excellent iced! For me it was just ok hot the last time I had it but iced it is rather fabulous. Looking forward to many midsummer night’s with this one iced!
The mint becomes more pronounced when cold, and the fruit becomes more of a refreshing afterthought. The overall taste is citrusy and minty!

tigress_al

yep, definitely agree that it isn’t good hot. I almost gave my bag away, then I tried it coldbrewed……yum

I tried this as a sample from BrewTEAllySweet.
Dry~ it smells like a fruity Heaven.
Brewed, I get more of the apple and mint.
I didn’t quite get 2 tsp as a sample and steeped it 7 min in 1 small cup.
All I can REALLY say is…I need to order more to give it a fair evaluation.

CelebriTEA

This is very lovely iced…I just had to try it this way, even though I am freezing…lol…

Thanks Emilie for some of this!

I drank it earlier, and before I knew it the cup was empty and I hadn’t really paid any attention to it! I do remember that it was tasty though, but I’m not going to rate it this time. :)

I really like this. It’s really funny seeing all of Roswell Strange’s tasting notes on all of the teas that I have been trying, but I guess it makes sense since I received it from her/him (?). Anyway, it’s nice, citrisy, and bright. I might hold off on buying this one though until I start bringing in some more money.

‘Them’ is the English singular pronoun you’re looking for. :)

Roswell Strange

I like this cold brewed, too. Also, her would be the correct pronoun ;P

OMGsrsly

Haha. Well, yes. But if not known, “them” is a good one to start with. :)

Zach Guillian

Haha you guys. Didn’t even realize you had commented until I checked the steepster app.

The local DavidsTea was giving glasses of this iced out for free this morning, so how could I resist? I really enjoyed this. It was both tart and sweet at the same time. Each sip, a different fruit would come out with me, sometimes sweet apple, sometimes citrus, sometimes berry. I loved the combination of berries and mint. It a little like vanilla at the end of the cup.

I haven’t reviewed anything for a few days because I was in bed with a bad cold. I couldn’t taste much of anything and just started getting my sense of taste and smell back.
