drank Gaba Guava by DAVIDsTEA
308 tasting notes

I’ll preface this by saying I’m not a fan of teas that taste like piña coladas.

I love coconut in teas, but I’m not a huge fan of pineapple in tea (and definitely not when paired with coconut).

Given that guava is the first ingredient in the blend, I was really hoping it would lean more toward tropical than piña colada. Alas, it’s almost entirely piña colada for me which is super disappointing because you don’t see guava in teas very often.

I iced it, and maybe that amplified the piña colada-y-ness. I just don’t want to drink tropical teas hot.

I might give it another go with a much shorter steep time or cold-steeped, but I might not bother.

Flavors: Coconut, Pineapple
