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.

Midsummer Night’s Dream was my first venture into the non-caffeinated tea’s and herbal infusions. It is a sweet and citrus blend of magnificence, certainly something worthy of a Shakespearean name.

Dry this infusion looks almost like a potpourri, and the wonderful citrus scent is certainly not helping it! The one thing that will catch your eye for sure is the whole gooseberries, that is if you can stop yourself from smelling it.

Brewed this infusion has a strong citrus scent and a lovely yellow colour. It is perfect by itself, but again one or two tsp. of sugar will really set it off. This tea also makes for an extremely enjoyable iced beverage as well.

If you like citrus herbal infusions or a on the no caffeine kick then this tea should already be sitting in your cupboard!

Very soothing, nearly as much as Mother’s Little Helper. I get busy at work and my teas often turn cold. This flavor holds up, equally good hot and cold.

Wow. Having this tea hot tonight before bed. I wasn’t thrilled at first. Found it quite weak but as is my usual custom with herbals I left the tea leaves in while I drank the tea. And it is wonderful after about 15 minutes. It is a very light colour but the flavour is not light at all. Apparently citrus is my go to flavour this year. I added a touch of Agave Nectar to this. Next time I will try it without the agave just to see how it is.

I can’t wait to have this one iced. Of course I need to get some more for sure.

Both the BF and I love this tea iced. Like LOVE this tea iced. Citrus, mint, not too fruity sweet. It is just a really refreshing cup. I both cold steep it and brew it hot and pour it over ice, whatever I have the time for.

This tea. THIS TEA! This is my favourite tea ever. EVER. Before this tea came along, that title belonged to Exotica (for good reason!) but this one… oh what can I even say about Midsummer Night’s Dream?! I could write an essay on this tea and it just wouldn’t be enough. It wouldn’t even touch the surface on how amazing this tea is. I love citrus teas, and I’m particularly fond of citrus teas with a kick. This one is hands down a keeper. I initially bought 200g of this when DavidsTea was planning on getting rid of it and then it turns out they ended up keeping it. WELL GOOD. Because it’s heavenly. Ohhh this tea..
A reviewer previously mentioned that it has an unidentifiable citrus taste that’s followed by a creamy, almost creamsicle flavour. This is a pretty good description, but I would just add that the mint, although not prominent in the initial flavour itself, really shines here. Imagine if you will, a citrus tea that is warm and thick on the tongue, followed by a cool, creamy hit. Yes. That’s this tea. A rich, citrus flavour with a hit of cool creaminess in the aftertaste.
Iced, it’s just out of this world, but it’s also incredible hot.
The only reason I don’t give this one 100 is because of the dry tea itself. It is so ‘chunky’ and has some big pieces that aren’t evenly distributed. I tend to make a big batch and down it over the course of a day or two to really get the full flavour of this tea, but sometimes I just want one cup, and going through the tin to pick out all the bits and pieces of the tea to get a full flavour is kind of annoying.

THIS. It’s funny, you assume there are flavors you just don’t like for whatever reason, then you find a tea like Midsummer Night and change your mind. The dry leaf smells lovely-almost like orange potpourri with a hint of mint. I did a nice long steep and a tablespoon of agave (I like sweet) in a 2 cup tumbler and this tea is heaven. I think the gooseberries pull the orange and mint flavors in. Love this tea, although I almost ruined it for myself by trying it as a latte with almond milk. Still trying to burn that taste from my memory..blech

From the Caffeine Free sampler. A heavily citrus-flavored herbal blend with hints of tang and tartness, but is sweet at the same time. When hot, it reminded me of David’s Orange Blossom, with just a tad bit of mint and pucker. As it cooled, the tartness faded into a mellow grapefruit-like flavor. I think this would make great iced tea.

This one is really strong and citrusy…I wasnt a fan at all. I found it to be too much and for a calming tea I found that the sourness from the citrus actually woke me up.

This tea is delicious! It tastes like all your favorite citrus fruits having a great party. It is very zesty, and sparkly (not so much transluscent) The smell of the dry tea is a great pick me up, and the golden elixir is just as satisfying. No need for sugar or any extras.

This tea I brewed up in the afternoon of my first dayshift. I needed a herbal tea to calm me down after working so hard and this one hit the spot well.

It is not a bad tea, I found. It is actually quite better than a lot of herbal teas I have been trying but it is very heavy with lemon which means it needed honey just to even it out to a smooth cup. I would definitely drink this again but… maybe not a lot of it. A tin buy is plausible but it would last me as long time.
