From DAVIDsTEA

If you want a taste of the Kentucky Derby,the best place to start is a mint julep. So ice yourself a cup of this little number and hang on to your hat. With black tea, spearmint and lemon peel, it’s smooth and refreshing right out of the gate. Add a creamy touch of pineapple and coconut, and you’ve got a cool summer drink that’s best in class. Try it with a sprig of fresh mint, a splash of bourbon and lots of cracked ice. Trust us – it’s a winner.

Black tea, rooibos, spearmint, pineapple, coconut, lemon peel, natural and artificial flavouring*.

Contains coconut

Great Canadian TTB

When I was took my first sip, I was really surprised. I was expecting the smooth mint I got but I was not expecting the coconut creaminess. I mean, is there even coconut in this? Ultimately, I think this cup is tasty but it is not something I need to keep around. I am very happy I got a chance to try it so thank you Jeweled Thumb for adding it to the box :)

It’s time to admit that when it comes to “fall” food and drink, I am an autumnal Grinch. The only spicy teas I like are chais, which I drink year-round anyway. It’s usually not quite cold enough here to make with the homemade breads and soups. Turkey gives me a culinary sadness no matter how it’s done. I love pumpkin as food but I can’t stand pumpkin pie and DEATH to Pumpkin Spice Anything.

Did I mention the average temps here have been hanging steadily in the upper 70’sF since September?

So, all these summer iced teas I never got around to trying that I’m trying now! I forgot this came in the summer sampler because it ended up in the back of my tea drawer. It’s a pretty even black tea and rooibos blend. I’ve tried this hot, iced, and cold brewed, and I like it hot and iced the best. Hot, I brewed at around 175 for about five minutes, double-strong, and it was really good with a dollop of frothed hot milk. I don’t get any citrus from this, like some people do, just mint and coconut. The combo is done well because to me it doesn’t taste particularly of one or the other, they just dance. Iced, I brewed 1tbsp in a 14oz steeper, same low temp…and then forgot about it and got in the shower. By the time I poured it over ice, it didn’t dilute at all, and it was still really good! Nothing got too bitter, which is always a plus for me because I tend to oversteep things.

I’m a fan. Wish I’d tried it earlier, so I could have bought more. Can’t wait to blend some into a chai.

I picked up some of this when I was in NYC on my first visit to a DAVIDsTEA! What an awesome experience! The staff was friendly and helpful and I walked out wishing I’d bought more tea!

I had had a lime tea before and wanted something similar to enjoy at home. It was between this and Lime Gelato … and I ended up buying an ounce of this on smell alone.

I got it home and brewed up a cup … only to be disappointed. The mint was good, but the other flavors in the tea really threw me for a loop. There was minimal fruity goodness, mint on top, and a weird aftertaste I couldn’t place. I relegated this one to the back of my tea cupboard until a friend came to visit and expressed interest in trying it.

I brewed up two cups using my new electric kettle (previously, I was stuck using a low powered microwave and measuring cup) and WOW! Proper brewing temperature changes everything! It was lightly sweet, minty, with just a hint of fruit. Delicious!

Overall, this isn’t one I’d buy again, but it is one that I would happily accept if offered!

Mint Julep really reminds me of a certain tea…. but I can’t quite put my finger on it! So I guess that makes it its own unique tea! Yes, it is certainly special and tastes great when it’s cold! The mint is barely noticeable; it’s more melon-y than anything. What a wonderful way to celebrate summer; with flavor-full melon tea! Definitely worth a try.

Creamy, fruity and minty is a weird combo, but somehow it works out well. I drank too much of this, and I’m currently really sick of it. But all in all it’s good.

Ok this is so good. I’m just putting it out there now. I walked by my cup a minute ago and thought to myself “what is that wonderful smell??” It was this tea. Usually I have to wait for a tea to cool quite a bit before I really get a lot of flavor from it…but this one I can drink hot and still taste the mint and the pineapple…and coconut? I dunno…it’s almost creamy. It’s really good. No sugar needed. Will have to get more of this.

EDIT: I couldn’t even tell there was rooibos in this. I mean I saw it when I scooped it out of the bag…but didn’t even recognize that it was rooibos and I def don’t taste it at all..at least not hot anyway…when it cools I’ll add more notes.

Ok…had it iced. It’s lovely as an iced tea. Very nice. The citrus is still not the main flavor contributor…but that creamy coconut and mint remains…and it isn’t a harsh mint at all..the coconut isn’t in your face and the fruity citrus notes underneath gives it a pleasant balance…had myself about 2 large glasses of this iced today. yummers.

Didn’t like this tea. Personally I think mint in tea is just a no no for me. I enjoyed the coconut in this but the smell of the mint was keeping me from enjoying it.

Lovely iced AND hot. Wow. I haven’t had a julep before, but if they taste half as good as this tea, then I’ll surely try one at some point. It’s amazing how a 0-calorie drink can taste so creamy and filling.

You can definitely taste the mint in this one, and the creaminess of the coconut blends well together with it. It’s refreshing, and very summery, and definitely better iced than it is hot.
