Day 41 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge. Rating is mainly based on the hot tea. I haven’t tried it iced yet, and I’m curious to see if it improves the flavour as much as my fellow reviewers seem to be suggesting.
The mango flavour is the most apparent, which surprised me as it’s not the first flavour on the list. It made me want a mango smoothie, so I could have the full mango taste. Actually, that’s what bothered me about it as well — it felt too much like the ghost of mango: a lingering, hollow flavour missing the sweetness and substance that would make it great (…and a smoothie rather than a tea).
It actually tastes BETTER as it resteeps — the fruity flavour seemed to come out more. That being said, the hollowness of the flavour seems to remain, though it did seem a little sweeter on the third resteep, when the water got cooler…..
