From DAVIDsTEA

The call of the wild
Looking to get in touch with nature? Try this outdoorsy blend of wild herbs and plants handpicked in the Canadian wilderness. We swear it’s like drinking a fresh forest breeze. It has wintergreen leaves for a lightly minty taste, cedar and pine for a bright, evergreen aroma, and sumac berries to add tartness and a pretty pink colour. Overall, it’s delicately sweet and totally refreshing. Now that’s a breath of fresh air.

Whaaat – no notes on this one? But I KNOW I wrote notes on this one!
Oh well – I still have quite a bit of this one left, but I have a feeling it’s lost its potency. Oops!

Still nice, but it is very light in flavour.

It’s like drinking the woods- so refreshing! I wrote a little blog post about it quite a while back :) Such a cool tea!

CupofTree

Ah this one sounds amazing :) Loved your blog entry about it

canadianadia

Thanks for sharing the blog entry. I love your teapot!

DaisyChubb

Thank you! I should use it soon, it’s been neglected since I got a gaiwan. Don’t worry little pot, I’ll use you tomorrow :D

Kittenna

Huh, I’m positive that there were notes on this one before, too. From Indigobloom, for one.

Kittenna

Oops, you meant notes written by you XD

Zoltar

don’t make my hope goes high like that ! after seeing the review was hoping that this tea was back but no :( that what happen when i don’t buy big quantity of something i like right now and wait formlater

DaisyChubb

Silly Steepster, sometimes deleting our notes!

Hey Zoltar, you’re right – sorry to get your hopes up :(

Zoltar

It’s okay i’m sure they are gonna make another tea like that for the winter this time i’m gonna buy a lot of it :P

Shmiracles

hey! what is the pot and bubble cup you are using in this blog entry?! i love it!!

DaisyChubb

Thanks! I got them both from DavidsTea, the teapot seems to no longer exist :( But the cups do!

http://www.davidstea.com/bubble-teacup-blue-en?&TF=&DEID=

Shmiracles

thanks so much! they look so different in your pictures than they do on the website. i’m definitely gonna get a couple. …now i am on the hunt for a tiny 6oz teapot!

Zoltar

the teapot no longer exist but you can email them they will check if store near you got some left that what they did for me

Shmiracles

thanks for the advice Zoltar, i just emailed them and i’ll let you know if i get any results.

Shmiracles

okay, so, long story, but happy ending.
i placed two tea orders with DavidsTeas this month. (i know i have a problem.) (butit’scoldweathertimeandtheteawasjustallsowonderfulsoundingandihadn’tboughtanyinalongtimeanddamnitineededthattravelmug!)
one was placed real early in the month and when i got a shipping notice for the second late order i placed just a few days ago i decided to call DavidsTea and see what’s up. now a few days before that i had randomly emailed them to ask about the tiny glass gongfu teapot in your pictures as Zoltar recommended. ….drumroll…. now they are urgently shipping my tardy order to me and sending me the teapot free. next week is gonna be a teapocolypse!

Zoltar

yay for you ! :) the teapot is really great and hard to get good that you could get one and even more for free lol

DaisyChubb

Oh my gosh what AWESOME news! Best customer service ever :D

tattooed_tea

Ok, I need to find some of this.

DaisyChubb

I still have some ;)
It might not be fresh, but when I get around to swapping again, I will send some off! Even if it’s not “fresh” per se, it still tastes the same to me! Wintergreeny!

tattooed_tea

That would be fabulous. Somehow I only came across it today.

So I made this hoping that it would soothe my poor throat. I am sick of ginger so mint seemed a valid alternative.
Well it was kindof soothing but not nearly as much as I had hoped.
the tingly sensation was interesting, I liked that part… but the brew was so weak I could barely taste anything, but what I do get is a foresty minty taste that if stronger, would have been quite pleasant.
Next time, I’ll use more leaf.
I’m sortof tea weary at the moment. So much tea in my cupboard… and so little time to drink!

Daniel Scott

Only 81? No, silly, it’s 100!

How long did you steep it for? It really needs at least 10 minutes.

Indigobloom

LOL I take it you like this one huh! I steeped it for about 8 min. I’ll definitely try longer next time!! :)

Daniel Scott

Yeah, I mean, it’s a subtler one. I can see it easily being too weak. I steeped mine at 12 minutes, 14, and 16 with one added leaf, just in case. LOL. And it was admittedly fairly weak by the third steep, but it didn’t taste funny in any way. Just weaker.

Indigobloom

Did you add any sweetener? I added honey, for my throat.
16 minutes!! this tea has some staying power :)

Daniel Scott

Yup, definitely honey!

Barb

I can relate to your “tea weariness.” I got on Steepster a couple of months ago and before I knew it I had so many boxes and tins and sample packets I couldn’t keep track of them all! I have been offline for a bit trying to do a sipdown so I can really concentrate on what I have and any new teas that may sneak in. This tea sounds like one I will definitely want to try so I hope it will be available awhile.

Daniel Scott

Barb, if you want to try it, I would just go to your nearest DAVIDs/swap for it now, it is/was a limited-time thing. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it in my store recently because the boxes of it REALLY don’t seem to sell, but my store is a bigger location that seems to hang on to stuff longer.

Barb

Daniel – ???? Or possibly LOL — my nearest store in is Manhattan and I’m in Texas. On the other hand, I DO have a niece living in Brooklyn… It’s a thought! Thank you!

Daniel Scott

Uh-oh. LOL. Yes, you should make arrangements – to swap, maybe – soon!

Indigobloom

eek, yes that is a good idea. I’d swap but have FAR too many teas in my cupboard to give any more samples a home at the moment but I’d be glad to send you some! though it might be a tad less fresh

Barb

Indigobloom: thanks! But I think I had better just let it go (and make sure I’m getting the David’s Teas Newsletters so I don’t miss another one!)

Thanks to DaisyChubb for sending me a bit of this tisane.

This has to be the most unusual looking tisane I’ve come across in a long while. And I’d like to also mention that this tisane does NOT contain hibiscus (YAY!) so kudos to Davids Tea for not jumping on the hibiscus wagon and adding it to everything that doesn’t contain tea leaves.

The color isn’t pink, but I do taste a berry-ish type flavor to this, along with the distinct wintergreen minty tones and hints of pine-ish flavor. The mint and the evergreen notes give this a very exhilarating sort of taste. Overall, it’s a very delicate kind of flavor though, even after brewing for 10 minutes, but it has a nice, soothing flavor. Enjoyable.

Uh, well…. this one is certainly interesting! It’s pretty light, but even with a 3.5 minute infusion, there’s enough flavour. It definitely both smells and tastes like wintergreen – which makes me think of gum, and makes me kind of sad. I guess that’s an association that I’m just doomed to have with minty flavours.

Anyhow, it does also taste kind of lightly forest and very fresh – I’m curious about how it would be iced and a bit sweetened – perhaps tastier? I’m glad I just got this as a sample from the generous Janelle, as it’s certainly an interesting tea to have tried, but I’m very glad I don’t have to drink down too much of this!

….and by that you mean, glad I have sil I can pawn things off to cause she’ll drink most things at least once…

It’s like you read my mind! :D

First, I should note that right before drinking this, I had a TON of passion fruit sorbet, and the taste was still in my mouth when I drank it. I don’t know if it’s the combination, but wow, this was amazing! So different and soothing and minty and fresh.

I had a hard time deciding how much leaves to use. They don’t fit in any teaspoon, and the box says 2+ tsp per cup. I went pretty randomly, but I wonder if putting more or less would have made a big difference.

In any case, I’m really enjoying this. If you can, eat passion fruit sorbet before. It’s worth it. I swear!

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 30 sec
DaisyChubb

If I can find passion fruit sorbet, I’ll do it! :D

Barb

I wonder whether using a 1/4 C measuring scoop would work to estimate quantity? By volume, that’s about 3 tablespoons.

The comments and tealogs on this stuff are so varied and interesting that I’m definitely going to have to try some.

Barb

It’s all gone! Tried to order a 25 gram bag (the only size listed) and it’s not available. Foo.

It was pretty hard to measure out this tea as the leaves and pine needles wouldn’t fit in my scoop, so I ended up guesstimating the correct amount. I don’t see any tinges of pink in the steeped tea, but then there weren’t too many sumac berries that I could see in the blend to begin with.

It’s rather unfortunate that this tea tastes mostly like watery Pepto Bismol – not surprising I guess since PB is flavoured with wintergreen. So it isn’t the poor plant’s fault that its flavour immediately brings stomach medicine to mind, I gues,s but it does make it harder to enjoy this blend.

Ptkelo

When I make this tea I fill my travel mug to the top with the leaves and then drink it through the steeper. I find that to be an ok amount because the leaves are really big and it doesn’t take alot. I have never tried pepto bismol so the taste problem has never occured to me.

Indigobloom

I’m drinking this now… and I know what you mean about pepto!! which isn’t so bad, kindof calming on my throat. Though it is too weak- I wish I’d added more leaves

gmathis

Wow..strange combo. With the pine in it, I’d think it’d have a floor cleaner whang to it.

Oh. My. Gosh.

First I will start by telling you that I bought this for my mom as a birthday gift. She flippin’ loves teas like this; the more Canadian the better! What could be more Canadian than this: wintergreen leaves, cedar green, white pine needles, and red sumac berries. She was so excited about it she had to brew up a pot right away…

It’s like someone took the forest, steeped it, and made tea! Takes me to Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park straight away, like I am smelling the pine in the air—only instead of just smelling I am drinking it as well. You definitely taste the wintergreen first, but there’s depth added with the pine, spruce, and berries. Light, refreshing, crisp perfection.

Boiling 8 min or more

This tea looks amazing, and such a fresh and clean sight.

I just wish I had found it even the least bit tasty. At best, I can say the experience was “interesting”. My mouth felt all tingly and it definitely tasted like wintergreen and mint and all kinds of tingly woodsy things. Actually, it tasted a bit like watered-down Buckley’s. Which, despite what my wife thinks, isn’t some kind of huge Canadian practical joke.

this does not sound like something I would enjoy at all…

De

Other people seem to love it! I dunno.

Jillian

I wish I’d seen this review before I bought the tea. Oh well, maybe it’ll be as good at destroying cold and flu germs as Buckley’s is.

I love the smell of this tea, and I enjoy the idea of this tea, but I have to agree with my wife. It tastes like a watered-down Buckley’s. I’m going to give it one last try and then it may go in the swap pile.

Indigobloom

oh oh! swap? :)

aisling of tea

You want it, chickie, it’s yours :).

wahooo! I think we need to set up a tea date :P

This is amazing. I want to drink this forever. FOREVER.
This is a forest in a mug. I feel like I’ve known this taste my whole life even though this is the first time I’ve experienced it in tea form. Maybe my affinity springs from the desire to return to the woods after living in Toronto for 2 years? Anyway, this tea is not one to throw in a thermos and have on the go, you need to sit down and close your eyes!

Boiling 8 min or more

I’ve been really skeptical to try this one because of the price (10 bucks for 26 grams? eep!).

Erin

Yeah I know, especially since you use so much in one cup! But in my opinon it’s totally worth it :)
