Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet tropical fruits with hints of ripe mango.

Liquor: Golden yellow liquor with notes of tropical fruits aroma.

Flavour: A rich and ripe melange of tropical fruits with a profile that alternates between pineapple and mango. The papaya adds a buffering sweetness that develops in the cup.

I’m not friends with this tea yet. I’m not getting any bitterness, or anything unpleasant, just blah.
I put two tsp in a mason jar, added cold water, put it in the fridge overnight (approx 7 hours), strained off the leaves this morning, put it back in the fridge, drank when I got home. Watered down fake fruit punch. Sorry that’s my impression. Maybe not enough leaf? Maybe not long enough cold steep? Not sure, will keep playing with it. I’ll update the note as I play with it, am not rating it yet.
Thanks Nxtdoor for sending me a sample of this.

I tried this again. Threw the last of the sample in the fridge for about 36 hours, which seems like a crazy long time to me. The results were much better this time than the first time I had tried it. I don’t think I will buy more of this, but the second try was a nice fruit/green iced tea. Not too bad.

After reading the reviews here, I used the rest of my sample to cold brew this tea. And it was … vile. Like drinking cheap perfume with a bitter fruit undertone. Yuck! There’s no hope for this one.

Edit: I dropped my rating because the cold brewed version of this was just so awful.

Had a cup iced. Not impressed. A somewhat bitter and very grassy green with an artificial-tasting “tropical” flavor.

I am so glad that I only bought enough of this for one pot. It smelled too much like Bubbly for me to trust it, and damn was I right. This tea is like pineapple cheap champagne. It may be great for the wallet but your taste buds will regret every sip. I ended up dumping the pot after I tried it both hot and iced and couldn’t handle more than a couple sips either way.

Glad I’m not the only one that really didn’t like this one!

So I was forwarned by the girl at DAVIDs that this was a quick steep, so I followed her advice and only steeped it for 2 minutes in 80 degree water. It turned out really well, so I guess I found the secret!

The perfect green for summer, tropical and light! Nothing super special but it is a lovely blend that I intend to try both iced and cold brewed! The papaya and mango are stars for me in this one!

Tea to go today…wanted to see how this differs from Daydreamer, and I’m sad to say, not much, really. They are slightly different, but not different enough. I think I would have preferred this blend added to a white or light/green oolong base for something a little different.

Can I say which I like better? Nope. They are both sooooo similar. Will I stock either again? Maybe.

Hmmm… DavidsTea Are you sure about the brewing instructions???? High 90s and 5-7 mins? I’m sorry but that doesn’t seem right to me… SO I disregarded it and did it for 80 for 3 mins.

At first sniff: This does smell very tropical-like… with a hint of fake smelling hand lotion or Glade room smellers (whatever you call them.) I liked it and didn’t. It had me worried and not.

At first steep: So this brewed up rather weak, but I’d rather it weak than bitter and gross. I have enough to give this another try, so there might be a re-review in the future. The smell brewed smells… faintly aersol-y, cleaner like… like those wipes you can use for your kitchen… really hard to put my thumb on it. It’s OK, but not great. Taste is… yeah…. again… kind of like a cleaner?

Very weird after taste. I’m wondering if it’s because of the rose petals, or other flower petals. It might just be too much other “Green” rather than the green tea. I am not a fan of this tea. I will try the remainder of the sample, but this is on the “no” list.

Hmmmm, looks like I already rated this one a long time ago, and not very generously either. Well I am bumping the rating of this up. This is another green tea I picked up to try to increase my collection of teas that I can drink without sugar. I think this may be one I can keep. It’s very tropical tasting, and I’m getting some not ripe banana flavour, kind of that sour banana flavour, but it is quite pleasant. This reminds me of daydreamer from last year’s spring collection, actually it tastes exactly the same to me from what I can remember.

I’m not a fan of fruity teas, but I thought I’d give this one a shot as it has a green tea base and smelled fabulous.

I made a mistake and followed the steeping instructions on the bag. Usually I ignore them and do green teas as low temps, but I did the 93 degrees and 5 min steep. Yuck. It was bitter with a weird fruity taste, followed by more bitterness. I couldn’t even drink the cup.

I have enough for a few more cups, so I will try again with a lower temp and shorter steep time. It can’t get any worse.
