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.

I received a single serving sample of this with my last order from DAVIDsTea, and was excited to try it out since it wasn’t something that I was willing to risk order a whole package of. As stated in other comments, it looks like an innocent tea, until you let it steep. The color of it is… well, interesting, but the taste is great. Not too overpowering and not at all as disgusting as one might think. Definitely going to add a pack to my next order, I’d love to try it over ice, I have a feeling it would make a good (but funky) iced tea.

Ok I have 3 minutes on my break to add a quick note about my Swampwater!

First of all, I have had this tea for exactly one year. Untouched (kind of). My first and last david’s tea purchase until a few months ago in fact! I asked for a tea that would be refreshing as an iced tea and not need any sweetener! So I smelled Swampwater and was in love!

I went home and knew nothing about how to make real iced tea. I had a tiny tea-ball thing (about a tablespoon) that wouldn’t be enough for a big batch. So I just dumped some loose tea in thinking I would strain it when it was done. Strain with what? I had nothing. So it was a gross mess full of rooibos that tasted weird because I kept having to pick little things out of my teeth.

One year later! I cold brewed it first overnight in my DT mug at work. It was awesome because it didn’t leave the orange ring when cold brewed (which is part of the fun when it’s hot!) but tasted very refreshing. I tried it hot the same day and it was fresh and delicious.

So I have to say I am impressed with the freshness after one year, but possibly sadenned because it’s no longer on the market? if you find some of this somewhere sometime – try it! It’s fun :D

I love this tea but have only had it hot up till now. As expected, it’s wonderful cold! Fruity and refreshing, with the green rooibos coming through really nicely. I wish this summer’s teas included something more along these lines because none of them really call out to me.


me neither :(
well, I’m waiting to try a few of mine iced. I haven’t done it yet, except with my Mugicha!

I like the flavor of this one! Sorta reminds me of (oddly enough) those orange slice gummy candies I used to eat all the time. It’s quite nice.

I can successfully get more than one good cup out of a single scoop. This is a sweet tea with a fun green coloring.

The name and description alone attracted me to this tea, because I am far too easily amused by things like the fact that this tea turns such a nasty colour. I purchased it online long before it was released for the summer season.

I’ve never put a sweetener in this tea; I find it’s pretty good all on its own, though if it’s not left to steep long enough the flavour can leave something to be desired as it will turn out a little bland.

I’ve tried it hot, cold, and room temperature – though that was more through neglect than anything else. Personally I’ve found it quite enjoyable at either hot or cold. The oily film it forms from the sprinkles is a little unpleasant to look at, but doesn’t seem to affect the flavour.

Day 100 (yesterday) of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge.

Approx 3tsp in my 2-cupper.

This has always been a favourite of mine, not so much for the taste as the colour. It turns this great murky-green, which, which a dash of milk, looks so disgusting and… well, swampy. It’s always reminded me of a witch’s brew. In fact, I use this in plastic water bottles as “polyjuice potion” when I cosplay as Hermione. dork

The taste is light, but sweet and candy-ish. I generally prefer stronger teas, but it’s pleasent, even if I wish there was more to it.

I found my tin of this towards the back of my cupboard, I forgot I had it. I call this tea the “Shrek” tea due its color and its name. Nice tart fruity taste, very enjoyable tea.
