This is a fantastic introduction to DAVIDsTEA! The dry mix smells absolutely amazing – almost a mix of grapefruit and evergreen – but when steeped the listed ingredients come out to play. The hibiscus steps out, as well as some of the greenery, but it works.

I usually over-steep my tea a bit, mostly because I don’t bother to remove the teapot’s filter. With each successive cup of this tisane the thought sinks in more and more that this mix isn’t meant for over-steeping. The hibiscus becomes a little overwhelming. In the future I will try to make sure to get better about that.

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
