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.

Less is more with green teas. At least that’s what I’ve found so far with green teas and their steeping times.
So after having this one for a year, I finally am diving in. I hadn’t ‘cause I read somewhere that green teas aren’t good while pregnant? Don’t know how accurate that is…
Either way… I get the green taste very clearly through it, but I’m not really getting much for the grape though. It’s very little grape flavouring that I’m tasting. Maybe it’s the time that I’ve had the tea that is causing this, or maybe it’s just the scoop.. I don’t know. Will try again and decide from there
This was one of the first teas I’d ever bought from DAVIDsTEA last year. Today was the first time I had tried it. I wasn’t disappointed, although I wouldn’t buy this again.
The smell was light and very grape-y. The colour was amber and the taste was light and refreshing. This would make a good iced tea.
Flavors: Floral, Grapes
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.
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. =)
Flavors: Fruity, Grapes
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!
Flavors: Grapes, Grass, Hay
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
