From DAVIDsTEA

The grape escape
We’ve fallen hard for this fresh, tangy, grape-filled blend. In fact, it’s David’s new favourite flavoured tea. Why does he love it so much? There’s just something so luxurious about it. With green tea perfumed with Muscat and concord grapes, it’s a drink fit for royalty. Just brewing a cup makes you feel like you’re floating on some fabulous yacht in the Mediterranean or along the French Riviera. Try it iced in champagne flutes for the full effect. Something tells us we’re into something grape. Limited edition.

I first tried steeping this tea hot and I wasn’t impressed. This time I cold steeped it and it is much better! I get a wheatgrass tang from this at times and a really strong flavor that sometimes seems floral and other times seems grape or muscat like. I think I prefer this slightly sweetened which makes the grape part more full or true. I like it, am glad to have tried it, will enjoy the rest of the sample I got, but I don’t feel compelled to buy it again.

I tried it as a sample in the store. I was not impressed! Very little grape taste and a little artificial

Hooray, one of the teas that inspired my swap with VariaTEA went into a cold brew last night—only for around 3hrs. That was almost too long… darn sencha. Maybe I just overleafed. Still good, but mostly sencha, not much other flavour. My main trouble with flavoured greens! Darn them all to heck.

VariaTEA

Oh no. I am sorry you didn’t really enjoy it. It was not for me either.

Memily

No it’s ok! I’m still very glad I got to try it and still looking forward to sampling it hot :)

VariaTEA

Hopefully it improves for you.

This was actually the only tea from the Spring line that I tried. I love it. I’m generally less of a fan of green teas because I find they are grassy and irritate my throat, but this one is just divine. It’s so sweet and juicy and flavorful. Additionally, the quality of the leaves is superior to many of the other green’s I’ve tried from David’s. The tea doesn’t bother my throat, and goes down very easy. I should really try this iced, I’ve only had it hot so far.
I actually just managed to snag another small tin of this at David’s today even though it’s been discontinued for a couple months, so if it doesn’t come back next year I’ll have my fix. =)

What a lovely smell. Almost matches the flavor. Speaking of flavor I did not like this hot. The sencha overpowered everything. But as it cooled off the grape came out nicely.

Another sample from Virginia! This tea had a very subtle grape flavor, which I was not expecting based on my experience with DT’s blueberry jam. I was grateful that it wasn’t too overpowering. It smelled quite grape-y and when first brewed, the initial taste with each sip was grape. Like I said, it was very subtle, so it was more like a memory of grape. Then the green base would come through, which tasted savory with grass and hay notes. However, once it cooled, I could taste the green base more strongly with hints of grape floating in the background. This tea was decent, but I probably wouldn’t buy more as I am not a huge lover of grape flavored things or green teas. It was fun trying it though!

Sipdown (165/171)!

From the fabulous VariaTEA. Upon smelling the dry leaf I knew that a cold brew was the way to go with this one: it smelled like Grape Smelly Markers or Grape Kool Aid, and to me that’s not a flavour you have hot.

So I drank this last night while watching and crying over The 100: it was sweet and tasty in an obviously candy-like, artificial way but I liked that quality of it – probably because I like fake grape flavours to begin with (because they’re not “raisin-y”) and because the green base was well masked. If you were hoping for a natural grape flavour this probably wouldn’t be the best blend for you, though.

It was a nice one shot cold brew that I’ll probably remember fondly; but not something I feel at all compelled to seek out again, which is probably good because this guy’s a Limited Edition blend and I think most stores are out of it by now.

Flavors: Grapes, Sugar

Hahah I thought you were saying The 100 was sweet and candy like and I was like “we are obviously not watching the same show” :P

Grape Expectations is a lovely green tea with a very light fruity flavor. The green tea leaves are very fragile, so if you do not prepare it carefully, it won’t taste good. In my opinion it is better hot than cold, but it wonderful for springtime because of the light body and subtle fruity flavor. I wouldn’t say it tastes very much like grapes, there is just a general fruity note.

Meh. This tea is not bad. In fact, it smells delightful, and it goes down fairly well. However, it does not taste especially interesting, and certainly doesn’t taste like raisins or grapes. I won’t be sad to see this one go.

Icing it brings out the grape taste slightly more than serving it hot, but not enough to satisfy my taste. Super disappointing.

The first time I made this tea, I steeped it for too long and it was very bitter, so I tried it again, and made sure to do it properly and the verdict, after two extra tries is that this tea tastes like what grape scented playdough smells like. I was very disappointed.
