This is very interesting. It smells and tastes and like grapefruit. I wonder if that’s the gooseberries? My cup is almost gone and it was a very small sample, so they only way to analyze further is to try a resteep.

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.

Tonight in my search for a caffeine free tea to drink before bed I reached for this blend which I received as a Christmas present. Upon being given this tisane I didn’t have particularly high hopes because it was a non-tea blend from David’s Tea (I feel that many of their blends are designed to smell fantastic at the expense of taste, in order to facilitate sales). That being said, this blend is really starting to grow on me, even if it does taste distinctly unnatural.
If I had to choose a single word to sum up this blend it would be simple. To expand upon that it is sweet, very fruity, thin, and easy to brew properly. It isn’t fine dining, but one cannot always handle the complexity of some contrived truffle dish from a high end restaurant, and in moments of distraction or exhaustion (in my current case reading a neuropsychopharmacology textbook) will often reach for a simple hamburger. That’s the function of this drink, it is simple and doesn’t demand too much of you.
I had a free 50 g bag of this tea given to me months ago. I tried it hot, with and without sweeteners and didn’t like it at all. So, the bag sat for almost 8 months. Today, someone suggested I try it iced to use it up and it is so much better than way. I still don’t love it. I don’t even really like it. It’s essentially just drinkable now but I would not repurchase and will be happy when my bag runs out.

This tea nagged me through the whole process. It seems somewhat familiar (though I’ve never had it before, and it doesn’t seem to be ringing any other tea bells) to me, and I can’t pinpoint where I know it from.
Its driving me bonkers.
From the first sniff of the leaf, to the brewing, to the sipping, to now sitting here writing about it. Its familiar! Its reminiscent of something! WHAT IS IT? Arrgh!
The closest I can come in a creamsicle, but even that’s an imperfect match.
I mean, I generally liked it, but its driving my memory nuts. How do I know you, flavors? Arghhh.
I have been drinking this tea both hot and cold. For me, this tea has a taste combination of citrus and mint with a bit of floral in there somewhere. I find the flavor to be stronger cold than hot but maybe that has to do with how long I need it to sit to cool it. Both ways, the “orange oil” smell is a bit overpowering. Thankfully, this does not come through as strongly in the flavor, just the smell. I like that this is caffeine free. I wish they would not use artificial flavors.
Flavors: Floral, Mint, Orange
Delicous notes of different fruits and tasty warm or hot- or cold. :) Ijust rebought after purchasing the small 50oz. I love it and my co-worker of whom likes other styles did too. Normally I like nutty, not fruity. this one is magic :)
