Well, starting the day off with this lovely little sample from Ellyn. It smells simply fantastic, though mostly mango and not really any pomegranate at all. That’s okay, I like mango. The dry tea is certainly FULL of mango pieces, I put my entire sample into the steeper even though it was like 5 tsp because it was so voluminous and I wasn’t sure I was getting enough actual tea in there. So pretty much the perfect amount actually.
I haven’t had many DAVIDsTEAs so I don’t know if this is typical or not, but the taste…almost lives up to the promise of the smell. I’m processing it as kind of a weak brew, not so much in flavour, but in general mouthfeel. Like it’s less than even water. A bit not good. It’s tasty though, I get the slightest bit of tartness from the pomegranate, but it’s mostly just mango. A pretty nice, fruity, black tea.
