206 Tasting Notes
I’m made a cold brew of this, this weekend and oh my gawd… the smell was just amazing, so fruity and sweet and summertime feel. It tasted just like it smelled and the color was soooooooooo vibrant. I’m so glad I bought 4oz of this! It was my first order from DAVIDsTEA and I have ti say they may be my favorite place so far! Yummalicious.
I order this back in May and have been dying to try it!!! It is such a beautiful tea. So colorful yet subtle. I decided i would try icing it! I did the cold brew for 12 hours and I think I found my new favorite iced tea! Perfect for the summer! It’s such a refreshing taste and such a beautiful tea to watch brew! I think if I added a but if sparkling water it would be that much more refreshing of a iced drink for summer. I love it I love it I love it. I would just buy this is bulk just to use to look at it is that pretty. Ha ha I do recommend this tea. Next way to try it is hot.
I’ve had this since march when I ordered the 5 for 5. And idk why I was so hesitant to try it… Maybe I was afraid to be let down. Dry in the package it smelled like a freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookie. I didn’t want to be let down if it didnt taste like it smelled which is true for a lot of teas I’ve tried. I am SOLD. This is definitely one ill bulk up on. It is the perfect combo of cinnamon and raisin and sugar cookie taste. I was curious as to how the oat flakes would run off in the steeping but it did! I highly recommend this tea. And thank you for all the good reviews on this tea, because who knows… I may have never tried it if it weren’t for you guys.
I think I may have over steeped this :/ ill have to try again later. I was disappointed blah. I will rate after I resteep.
Thank you Shelley_Lorraine for this sample.
Once again, introducing me to new teas:)
I am not very picky when it comes to teas, and am always open to new teas.
I have to say I didn’t hate this tea, but I wouldnt go out and buy it.
I tasted the sweetness and milkyness.
Thank you for the sample again, but this just wasn’t my cup of tea.
But I did get to try my new steeper for this first time:)
when i first opened this one, I was surprised how spot on the spell was to the actual fruit. Not anywhere near the artificial watermelon smell I was expecting so I immoderately made this as an iced tea. It was perfect. Especially for the afternoon heat at the lake house. I love how subtle the watermelon flavor was. Just right. I got three steeps out of it. I have to say I haven’t really been let down by many of these mystery swap samples. Keep them coming!
I got to stop by the local tea shoppe here in Groveland, CA where this lake house is. I love stopping by. And I found out they expanded. Instead of just the little cute and quaint tea room and teas, they now have a cafe next door with many desserts and sandwiches and cute tea cups for sale as well as tea accessories and honeys and gelato. You name it! They also started carrying Harney & Sons Teas and tins and sample packs. A great addition to their house blend teas. Dori’s Tea Cottage. If you are ever on your way to Yosemite National Park stop by here. It is well worth it. I bought 6 new samples that I have been wanting to buy since my last trip! I also walked away with a new steeper! I’m a happy girl. My old one kept coming loose and letting the leaves into my cup. Not a fan.

Jamestown is another cute little town to drive through also near Yosemite. I always love coming up here. It’s literally a one street town with mom and pop shops everywhere. A tiny post office and fire station. Your local book store and coffee houses with their little trinkets as well as farmers market and Ice cream shoppe. Anyways, thank you Shelley_Lorraine for another satisfying sample.
I got 4 steeps out of this tea. Im sure i could have gotten a few more. Each steep I let it go a minute longer. I have to say I am really in love with this green/white mixture. The jasmine I loved. The fruity flavors were not very strong and paired very well with the base. I’m definitely going to buy a full size of this after my sample is finished. LOVE IT!!!
To calm my night I decided to steam some milk and steep it in that. It was perfect for right before bed. The mixture of the orange peel and cinnamon and chai I loved. I’m all about the spices in teas. Keep them coming. The chocolate was hidden probably seeing as there were only 3 mini chocolate chips in the whole same bag. Other than that I was a happy camper:)
