Sipdown! And what a happy sipdown it is!

When I was first getting into tea, a friend of mine made me a cup of key lime pie flavored tea. I hadn’t heard of novelty tea flavors at this point, and this blend was fantastic. Limey and creamy and just scrumptious. So, when I bought DavidsTea’s Key Lime I was expecting a similar reaction.

How can I say this nicely? I dread this tea. It’s not that it tastes particularly bad, it’s just not key lime and I don’t enjoy the tart cinnamon flavor that is there. Made today at work, the sour edge was the closest to lime it’s ever been and it wasn’t bad “cold steeped” (read: left in a mug of cold water while I went to a meeting). But yeah. Soooo happy to be done with this one and feeling just the tiniest bit proud that I finished it off myself and didn’t pawn it off on a friend.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Sour, Tart

If my memory serves me correctly. I had this tea iced in the summertime. I remember a very gross bitter taste-possibly from the rind of the lime. Yuck.

I’m so glad I’m not the only one! I wanted so much to like this but … no, just no. :-(

I had a in-store sample of this not so long ago and wth. Yes, exactly that reaction. It’d be better as a soda or fizzy something, but hot tea, no.
Somewhere in my tea cabinet, I have a small amount of dry leaf which I had bough to try before the sample.. I’m in no rush.

I am not sure if this still holds true, but you used to be able to return tea with a receipt

Thanks, tigress_al. I wonder if I had the presence of mind to keep the receipt?

I became interested in tea spring 2013, when some friends of mine brought me to a local tea shop. I’ve been experimenting since, and am absolutely in love! I am especially fond of blended teas, and I’m a sucker for gimicky flavors.

My cupboard is stocked with a lot of DAVIDsTEA at the present, although I do have a few teas from some local shops. I’m looking forward to branching out and trying teas from different vendors and shops. Let the journey begin!
