drank Spicy Piña Margarita by DAVIDsTEA
77 tasting notes

Sorry, Spicy Piña Margarita, but you are just foul to me. The more I tried to force myself (and everyone in my household) to finish up my 50g of this, the more I realized that I just do not like these flavors at all.

I like spicy. I like the warming bite of ginger in a lot of DavidsTeas, and I am happy to put jalapenos on almost everything in life. I get much more ginger than jalapeno in this (in fact, I wouldn’t guess there is any jalapeno in this), and much more cilantro than anything else. The cilantro has a weird, funky, dirty dish soap water taste that is horrifying. Sadly, I don’t get any mango or coconut. The pineapple is there as a vague, nondescript, fruity tone, with hints of warming ginger, and the weird burst of cilantro and hint of tomato.

It’s very much like steeping up a big cup of cilantro. I can only tolerate cilantro in small amounts in Nam Khao.

Whenever I find a tea that I don’t enjoy, my best friend is happy to finish off the tea for me (we have complete opposite taste in tea, so this system works out well for us). My BFF hated this tea as well, and then I couldn’t find anyone else willing to try it.

Cilantro tea.

I’m honestly not incredibly knowledgeable about teas. My experience with tea is mainly with Adagio when I am in the States and DavidsTea when I am in Canada. DavidsTea made me fall in love with tea. I was initially seduced by their cake flavored teas and then started branching out and finding more and more to love. I like all of their bright colors and seasonal mugs, and I enjoy their fun ‘flavored teas’ as much as their more traditional teas. I figure this is at least a good starting point :)
