I have had this sample kicking around for a while. I know I tried it before, but don’t remember if I reviewed it or even liked it. Dry it had little to no scent and once brewed I smell something like kind of like rice with something else. I got only one juniper berry in my infuser and left six or so in the last serving of this tea, so I’m curious as to how it will affect the taste.
It kind of has a weird citrus like taste to it, but it is nothing like lemongrass. The more I sip it, the more I think of broth without salt. I’m getting a little ginger. Tempted to sweeten it, but I’m enjoying the savory broth taste and don’t want to ruin it. WOW, so I added a pinch of salt to it and it is like a really good soup base! Is it the juniper that makes it so interesting? Now that I think about it, it is a little gin like. I’m going to have to look up how much this tea is, if they still sell it and think about cooking with it!
I set aside a portion of it to try with sugar and the sugar really changes it. It has an almost caramel finish to it once it is cool. This. Tea. Is. SO. Weird!

Dry Leaf Nose: Ginger and lemon.

Liquor: Light rosy/earthy colour.

Flavour: Citrus and ginger hold the top position and if steeped long enough, juniper berry notes appear. Tastes like it’s actually working!

This tea scared me a bit after the first wiff. All I could smell was the juniper bushes, although it reminded me of home since we had these bushes around our house, but still not sure if it is something that I want to drink.

The brew was a nice lightish reddish color and the smell is still very much juniper berries in your face with maybe a hint of rooibos. I did sweeten it a just a bit with rock sugar, because of the smell. It took a minute to get my courage up to try a sip and hmmm this really surprised me. it was pretty darn sweet and I hardly put in much rock sugar, and I could taste the zippiness of the ginger and I wonder if the sweetness didn’t come from the lemongrass. The juniper berries were much more mellow than I thought it would be… this is pretty darn good.

Once a again a tea surprises me and tastes different than it smells. This is a pretty tasty detox diet and I think most people will like it! I will drink this again for sure.

(Whoops. This didn’t show up when I searched “Detox David’s Tea”, and I looked for it under “Detox (Organic)” and didn’t find it so made my own. But here it is, all sitting pretty under “Organic Detox.” Durh…)

Okay, Detox. I have a confession; your herbal zinginess kind of makes me a little bit afraid. The lemongrass I’m cool with; the ginger, okay. But the juniper berries make my nose quiver like a bunny’s, and I’m more than a little afraid to sip you.
BUT it’s been that kind of a day, and after three days of trying to eat healthy (and falling to the call of If I Had 1,000,000 Flavours ice cream, my home-made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and countless lattes) it’s time I took more concrete measures.
That’s where you step in.
I’m doing this naked*, the way the tea gods intended. No messing around with time, temperature or proportion. I’m following the instructions to the letter.
Let’s go:
I brewed this in a cup with a forest green interior, so I can’t see the colour of the tea. It’s darkish, though. The smell mellowed SIGNIFICANTLY after brewing. The lemongrass is like a sweet hint of summer and the ginger promises to sting you a little but, but thinks that you’ll enjoy it. The juniper berries lurk directly under that ginger, their enthusiasm for zappiness barely contained.
As per usual, I can’t sip it this hot. My lips curl back in fear. I’ll wait four minutes and try again.
Okay. Oh, very nice, very nice!
The juniper berries are a lot subtler in flavour than they originally came across in smell. They combine with the ginger to kind of give your tongue a lingering slither of heat down the sides almost as an after-thought. I have to admit that I forgot this one was a rooibos/sencha blend, and I have to say that I reeeeally like it. It has the vegetativeness of green with the whole-milk mouthfeel of rooibos. It’s a very satisfying combination.
I got this tea in a Beauty Trio pack from my mum for by birthday (okay, I got the chocolate trio, but had two of the three teas in there in my cupboard, so exchanged it), and I’m pretty sure that this Detox is going to be the first one to go.
I’ve found my new working-at-night tea!
Victory!

*not LITERALLY naked. Naked as in no milk, no sugar.

the taste is so so, I tolerate it. I bought it for more energy and to maybe raise my metabolisim a bit, and for my diet (aka lifestyle change) but I am not sure how well its working altho I did look up every indivual ingrediant to see what each does, very useful info I wrote everything down so if anyone is interested in what I found let me know and Ill put it in the comments :)

So This is my long awaited day 10 ( official) of the advent calendar. So what happened with my box is that DT gave me Kiwi’s Big Adventure twice ( Day 10 & day 20… not that I’m complaining). So I explained this to customer service and they so kindly sent me 50g of Detox. That really made my day. This tea is surprising tasty. I have tried a detox tea before and didn’t quite like it, so I was surprised by how good it tastes. All in all this tea is good and it feels cleansing, which is perfect for the new year.

It is July and I still have unopened teas from my DavisTea’s Christmas sampler box in case you were wondering what total procrastination looks like. I decided to finally try this as I’ve had far too much pop and junk food in the past few days. I like this one because I can just taste how good it is for me, as weird as that sounds. I can barely taste the rooibos which is great because I’m not the biggest fan of it. I can’t see myself buying this but I’ll enjoy the little bit of the sample I have left!

I was rather off-put by the idea of another DT green tea from my Days of Tea this morning, so I shelved it for this afternoon. I’m glad I did, I wasn’t in a green mood this morning and am now. This one is much tastier than the Countess of Seville. I could do without the juniper berries, as anything that reminds me of gin is a nonstarter, but other than that, its a pretty good tea! It is, however, one I don’t see myself reaching for too often. I think I like Le Digestif better (shocking, I know). I’m glad I got to try it though. It is a nicely balanced blend of green tea and herbal; one flavor doesn’t overwhelm the other.

I do not like this tea, so I was curious if drinking it cold would be any different and cold-brewed it.

Nope. Really medicinal-tasting to me. I just can’t get past the juniper berries. Oh well!

Advent Calendar Day 10!

I will definitely be drinking this tea post new year this year, but I don’t think it is memorable enough for me to want to stock up on more. I like the lemon thing it has going on. Saying that, it was just an ok blend. I don’t think it tastes bad, but it didn’t blow my mind.
