drank Three Wishes Tea by DAVIDsTEA
470 tasting notes

It is far too hot to make any tea, and I’ve been drinking the same iced tea for about a week now, so I thought I’d do a backlogged review of this instead of adding yet another tasting note to Bangkok. This is also the first loose-leaf tea I made iced, so it seemed fitting!

When I made this hot for the first time my reaction was basically, “what the hell?!” It’s supposed to be a jasmine/rose blend, yet it tasted way more fruity than floral. Hot, it was not something I liked at all, but instead of leaving the bag to languish in my cupboard I made it iced. And suddenly, it was a whole different tea! The jasmine popped a lot more, and while the rose was still subdued there was a wonderful fruity mango taste. I don’t like hot fruit teas at all really, but iced is a different story—and mango is my favorite fruit, so really this worked out for the best. Now it’s one of the first teas I reach for when I need something cool, so even while it wasn’t what I expected/wanted I think it was actually a pretty fortunate accident.

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
