We called this tea Swampwater to keep adults away, but it doesn’t seem to work. Every time they taste it, they drink the whole thing down. Because the natural, tangy sweetness of green rooibos, guava, passionfruit and little candy sprinkles is just too irresistible. Even the murky green colour doesn’t scare them off. Maybe we should explain that it’s full of antioxidants. And caffeine-free. Reverse psychology…

Ingredients: Green rooibos, strawberry candies, sunflower, candy sprinkles, orange candies.

Drinking this iced today! It has a nice, sweet fruity flavor. A very good iced tea! And of course, the color. Everyone’s commented on it, and its hard not to say something! It seems normal at first, then BAM. Your cup is full of this crazy murky green colored liquid. Luckily, it tastes nothing like it looks.

Iced 8 min or more

Woah. Have you ever seen something that makes you just go woah.
I don’t know why I even bought this.. but I am happy I did. Its like everytime I get on Steepster I go to buy the things that are on my shopping list.. but I never get around to it. Anyways..back to Swampwater.

So I get this tea.. and I wait.. and I wait and I wait. My First cup is this lovely green color. Still kind of see through and it has some basic fruity flavor. It is pretty good. Nothing to write home to Mom about right? NO. The second cup is what made me realize how amazing this cup is.. I poured the second cup of tea into my cup..and it is this amazing dark green. It is so dark that light cannot pass or neter.. it is almost like a black hole.. or I guess a green hole..ha ha..drum roll. Anyways.. So I take the sip of this longer steeped cup..and I fall in love. This Tea is amazing.. Now I have a Glass Tea Pot.. I get to watch the color change and it is marvelous. If you are a fan of a.. nonchaulent fruity kind of tea. I do say that this is the way to go..
Don’t let the green scare you.. and realize that there is some good in the swamp. :D~

Oh boy, I have been wanting to try this tea ever since I heard about it (browsing David’s site and then reading the post that David’s Tea Obsession on Tumblr made about it), so when I saw that it was coming back to stores for this year’s summer collection… yes, please!

I got some of this iced at my favourite Davids location. This is one adult here who really enjoys the green colour of the liquor; one of the workers in the store told me and her co-worker that Swampwater was originally a Halloween tea, hence the green colour and orange and black cat candies. I say? Delicious.

So juicy, really refreshing, and the flavour didn’t get diluted as the ice melted from the flash cooling. I love tropical fruits like mango and guava and papaya, and I love rooibos, so I think this has just rocketed up to my favourite rooibos tea. Definitely need to stock up on a LOT of my own.

Kept giving it a chance but it does nothing for me.

It’s nothing more then swamp colored rooibos that’s a bit sweet.

I was really looking forward to it too!!!

Just spent too much money online at DavidsTea to quell the tears!!


So sorry you didn’t like it. I really loved it and hope it comes back in the summer.


it’s available online I had just ordered 100 grams of it! You should check out their site!


Oh I have ordered a number of times from them but hubby has cut me off from ordering online since I have been to the new store at Bayshore Shopping Centre 6 times since they opened 3 weeks ago. I am trying to decide if I should convince him to relent for Mother’s Day.


Hell I’d give you the rest of my 50 grams if I could!
But it’s been available a lot recently online so maybe just get him to relax and spin some wonderful stories!!!

This was my first experience with David’s Tea. I have to admit I was a little reluctant to try this. After all, the name isn’t so appealing but I ordered it so I figured I would try.

The smell is a little off putting. However, the taste is pretty good. There is a slight aftertaste that is not bad, but a bit surprising. I had a chance to try this warm and then cold as I left it after it steeped to shower. I’ve had the rest with some nice frozen yogurt. Yum.

I’m not generally a huge rooibos fan – but I actually quite like this tea. The novelty of the sprinkles and cats and murky green colour it steeps to is definitely fun – but the taste is surprisingly good. It kind of reminds me of strawberry/orange koolaid! Which of course led me to try it iced next!

It’s GREAT iced! This is one I look forward to sharing with my 10 yr old as an iced tea over this Summer break!

Juicy round flavour with a thinning on the finish. Reminiscent of earthy taste which, I am sure, is sourced from the rooibos. The after-taste on this one is a little too sweet- I get that unpleasant lingering sugary feel which I am guessing is sourced from the candies and the sprinkles. This tisane is definitely reminiscent of Jolly Jellybean by David’s Tea. There is a creaminess on the finish. From drinking this tea I am reminded of white chocolate cookies.

I got this as a sample from DAVIDsTea. It is a genuinely silly cup of swampwater.

I normally don’t want to drink anything nearly so murky, and well, swamp-like, however, this still tasted pretty darn good.

I could definitely taste the sunflower and the little black candy cats cracked me up.

Am I going to go out and buy this? No. It was fun as a sample.

i have been wanting to try this for so long but it was discontinued and now it’s back from the dead!

this is so cute in the bag the little orange sprinkle and the black cats smells fruity.

steeped it smells like candy! and the liqueur is the color of swamp water. my coworkers are giving me the “what is that!” look…

time to taste: sweet, fruity but not overwhelming and a little nutty there at the end i like this but don’t know if i’ll reorder i have 50g of this it should last me a while something to drink when i’m feeling nutty!

I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it. Swampwater, although is nowhere close to as weird tasting as its name may lead you to believe—leaves me unsure as to whether I will buy it again. It’s just ok. It kind of gives me a green tea vibe.
