From DAVIDsTEA

Daydream believer

At our annual staff party last summer, we invented the best drink ever: iced green tea with mango-flavoured ice cubes. It was totally refreshing and subtly fruity, like drinking a cup of green tea while daydreaming about tropical fruit. Hence the name: The Daydreamer. We’ve recreated it for you here, with a sencha green tea lightly flavoured with mango, guava and mangousteen. Steep a cup and dream a little dream of tea. Limited edition.

Ingredients: Fair Trade Certified Sencha green tea, mango, safflower, marigold, natural and artificial mangousteen flavoring, artificial guava flavoring*.

Sipdown! 873.

Still pretty meh about this one. Fruity greens and I typically don’t get along, so it’s not too surprising. There’s a bit of fruitiness coming through past the vegetal green tea base, and there’s no astringency with a 2-min infusion, so it’s not terrible or anything, just not suited to my preferences.

I apparently like this tea much more than others who rated it.

I should preface this by saying that I love the taste of artificial peach and mango. As a kid I was a sucker for that peach drink they sold at malls bubbling up like florescent orange sugar volcanoes in their clear dispensers. Oh! and those peach gummies that are so chock full of sugar that I’m amazed my teeth don’t immediately fall out of my head with a mere glance….yeah! I’m all over those like white on rice.

Although the ingredients list makes no mention of peach, this tea really pulls on those threads of my memories….I say yank away! ❤❤❤!

I’ve had this tea twice now, and both times my dry scoop included some reasonably sized pieces of dried mango. I managed to get 2 steeps out of the leaves, although the second steep was diminished in flavor.

I have enough dry tea left for one more pot of tea, but I’m already planning to pick up some more of this one when I have the chance to visit David’s Tea. It’s light, fruity, and refreshing. It feels like a tea/juice hybrid. I can see how that may not appeal to everyone, but it suits my taste; particularly when the weather heats up. I think it will become one of my 2013 Spring/Summer go-to teas: if I manage to get my hands on it before it’s pulled off the shelves.

Sil

haha i was totally a sucker for the artificial peach taste of “peach drink” from tim horton’s an the like

Lala

I still am a sucker for peach drink. How can you pass it up, with a name like “peach drink”!!

I am really falling in love with this tea, and green tea in general. It is not really a strong mango tea, but there are definite hints of mango throughout the tea. I think that they really got the idea right with a green tea with just the suggestion of mango. I find it responds best for me with a lower temp and a short steep time. I am enjoying my cup this evening for sure!

To me, this tastes just like another Canadian classic: Tim Hortons peach juice. I used to drink that stuff as a kid when my mparents went in for coffee (my Mum worked at a Timmie’s when I was very small and my Dad hung out with the bikers in front of the store). The only thing this needs to totally bring me back to childhood is a Tim Treat. Yup, a Tim Treat. Take a donut, add a mountain of whipped cream and stick a sugar candy face on there – BAM! I just liked the whipped cream and sugar, even then I knew that the donuts were big trouble : )

I will be fair and say that I sipped some pineapple juice before having this and it is likely affecting my judgment, but it took all 10 grams to make a pot of this so I likely won’t be trying it again. I don’t think there is anything remarkable about it (other than the similiarity to sugary drinks of my youth) and I would be happy living with a couple other flavoured greens I’ve gotten from DT over the years. I will be fair and say that this smells amazing in store – very enticing. That is what made the beau buy 10 g of this and another 10 of Strawberry Ginger, even though we both know better than to fall for the seasonal tea hype anymore. I need DT to come out with a good rick black tea. Preferably a well sourced pure tea, but a good caramelly black tea would work too. Mmm.

Anyway, this gets a smily face for reminding me of simpler times – though it should cost as much as peach juice would – this isn’t worth the cost.

Daniel Scott

Timmie’s peach juice?! You just made me so happy I picked this one up. I haven’t tried it yet.

Uniquity

If you don’t get peach juice right off the bat, maybe try adding a splash of pineapple juice. I’m still not sure if that was what caused it.

Soooo i can get behind this tea. One of my coworkers who knows that i love tea saw the kind of week i’ve been having and not only went to her stash of tea to brew me a cup of tea and brought it to my desk, but also handed off a few of her samples to me as she’d recently been in to david’s to buy new teas. One of the teas she had purchased with this one.

Overall? not a bad little tea. It’s not nearly as artificial tasting as a bunch of teas i’ve had recently and it smells nice. so today…that’s about all it takes. is it friday yet?

Indigobloom

aww that is so sweet! your coworker knows you well :)

jessiwrites

I have a bit more of this that I probably won’t drink, as I don’t care for mango anything. Would you want it?

So at first sip, I thought this was great. So yummy! the citrus was so balanced, without overtaking the tea. but then as it cooled… the orange became fake and I got notes of Jasmine underneath it all. Y’all know how I feel about Jasmine…
I couldn’t even finish the cup. Bleh.
This tea tricked me. I want a refund :/
(not on the money, on the experience!)

Kittenna

Yeah… didn’t taste good to me today either. But the piece of soggy mango was tasty :D

Indigobloom

oh I didn’t get one of those!! but there was what I assumed is an orange peel. I made that mistake… so bitter >.<

Kittenna

Ahahaha, I have also attempted to eat steeped orange peel. Bleech!

My bag had a few pieces of mango or papaya or something in it. There’s a big one left. Debating whether to just eat it.

Meh. This one was good, nice and fruity, but nothing to write home about. I feel like I’ve had this tea before, you know? It is a refreshing treat, and I think I’ll use the rest of our sample to make a pitcher of iced tea, but I don’t see this having a home in our cupboard. If I want a mango tea, I’ll reach for the Yerba Mate Mango from Tea Haus. I am enjoying this one, but it’s….unremarkable.

Jessie

I haven’t tried this yet, and it sounds good, but when reading the ingredients it definitely sounded like something (or many things) I’ve had before!

teaNsympathy

Thank you for reviewing most of these new spring teas! I was on the fence about which to try, and which not. This one was definitely a front-runner based on the description, but I can totally see what you’re saying. Now, I may just try some to-go when I go to pick up some Organic Gold Rush :)

Tamm

I’m always glad that there are people who try teas out soon after their release! I keep feeling tempted by the Gold Rush as well. Teas like this one that have “exotic” type flavors (lychee, mangousteen, and dragonfruit) are difficult to place because most people I know don’t actually know what these taste like. Many times these flavors are a bit off from what I actually have tasted from the fruit itself.

aisling of tea

@teaNsympathy – It’s my pleasure, trust me! I’m kind of disappointed in the whole spring line, it’s a hibiscus love-fest! Blegh. But oh yes, Gold Rush is love!!

@Tamm – There’s a DT around the corner from where I work, so I try to get the new teas ASAP. I’m going to try the last of the new ones, Paradise Found, (Pink Flamingo is an old favorite), but I don’t hold out a lot of hope for it. I do highly recommend the Gold Rush, though!

Tamm

You’re super lucky to live by a David’s! I have a Teavana, but I like David’s a lot more. I also am surprised because David’s actually seems to release new/updated blends more frequently. Paradise Found did sound tasty!

aisling of tea

I love Davids, despite not being too horribly impressed with most of their recent blends. But I do love having new teas to try all the time!

DaisyChubb

Hibiscus love fest indeed!
But yes, thank you for you and De being our review forerunners. I haven’t had a chance to try any yet, but I don’t think I’ll buy the Spring Collection box. I’ll probably do 10g for the better sounding ones. One. haha!
Same my money for Gold rush!

DaisyChubb

and Save!

teaNsympathy

Yeah I wish my David’s was closer too! I think I’ll save my money for gold rush as well! Let’s hope for a brighter summer collection!!!

Having this one iced! I do feel it is better iced than hot, but it will probably not be replaced regularly. There are plenty of other teas, green or otherwise, that I prefer iced, but there’s always that chance I will have a hunkering for it one day, and it will be the perfect thing.

Cavocorax

Is this the one people say is similar to Kokomo Green?

Amariel

Yes, and it is. Kokomo has more visible fruit, and the fruit is slightly different in nature, but they are tropical either way, and both green bases.

Cavocorax

Cool – good to know. I think daydreamer had more artificial flavouring – maybe that’s why they moved away from it?

Amariel

Perhaps.

Amariel

I retract my previous statement. They both have fruit, but it must have been lower on the fruit ratio as I am at the end of my sample bag.

Amariel

DAYDREAMER:

Sencha green tea, mango, safflower, marigold, natural and artificial mangousteen flavoring, artificial guava flavoring*.

KOKOMO GREEN:

Green tea, papaya, mango, pineapple, rose petals, marigold petals, cornflower petals, artificial mango, exotic and passion fruit flavouring*.

Both are $7/50g

I like this randomizer. I kept telling myself to drink this before Kittenna and I swapped again, and I didn’t. But then the number came up, and voila, drinking it! So I have finally tried everything from our first swap, yay! (Thank you again!)

When I first tasted this after steeping, I was wondering what on earth it was even supposed to taste like, because all I got was green tea. A little agave later, I guess that’s mango finally making an appearance.

I get a peach taste too, even though I guess it’s not really an ingredient. Definitely do not steep this for 3 minutes despite it saying 3-4 minutes. There’s a slight bitterness at the end from the 3 minute steep, which is pretty sad given it’s hardly flavored.

If I wanted mango, I’d go for Mango Madness. In fact, I think I will mix what’s left of this sample in with a bit of it just to see.

Kittenna

Hahahaha, I should try a randomizer!

momo

Random.org is the one I’m using, all you have to do is give it a range from 1-whatever and it picks one for you!

Daniel Scott

So many people have said they’d drink Mango Madness instead! I personally like both of them, although I do think the mango in this is quite subtle. I just really love mango, apparently. :P

momo

Haha, I love mango but I need LOTS of it to be happy. I didn’t even like Mango Madness at first, go figure.

This one is nice and light. This one will be easy on my upset stomach.

The flavour is very light, I’m getting a hint of mango but nothing overwhelming. I was hoping for a little more mango flavour to be honest. I may try steeping it a wee bit longer to see if I can get a bit more flavour. I’d say this one’s pretty good but not amazing.

Update: I steeped this one longer this morning to see if I could get some more mango. No dice. I’m getting lots of green tea, but no more mango. Then I tried adding some agave. The agave got me slightly more mango but nothing spectacular.

jessiwrites

Hmmm, if it’s not heavy on the mango, I might not mind this one. I like light green teas!
