Your new obsession

In a world of temptation, this tisane stands out. It’s a delicately spicy blend of lemongrass, red pepper, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, pineapple, orange peel and coconut. So exotic, so inviting, so warming. And as spring progresses into summer, you’ll find that it’s a refreshingly different iced tea. Try it with a touch of manuka honey for a truly exotic experience. Caffeine-free. (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Lemongrass, pink peppercorn, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, pineapple, orange peel, coconut, natural flavouring*

Price per 50g: $6.50

I never thought Exotica would be anything special. It doesn’t have any particularly interesting ingredients, but the taste somehow manages to be out of this world!

This is probably one of my favorite iced teas at David’s tea; Hence the headline “your new obsession” on top if the tea’s description. I tasted the lemongrass right away with particular spice, which is the cinnamon and cloves along with a hint of cardamom.

I don’t find his tea spicy at all; the peppercorns don’t make much of a difference. I couldn’t even tell they were in there

It’s really fantastic; I never would have thought that all those flavors could go so well together! I would definitely recommend it to anyone! For example, my mom HATES cloves, but she loved this tea, so drink up because you won’t regret it!

Day 19 of my Advent Calendar, i’m behind a little catching up today.

Dry Leaves I’m picking up cinnamon clove lemon coconut smells like a vacation!

Steeped i smell lemon cardamom cinnamon clove and coconut, the liqueur is a lovely lemon yellow color.

Time to taste: Cardamom, lemon, clove, the cardamom is overwhelming everything, the tea leaves a sweetness on the tongue thats nice i think that’s from the lemon, and lastly i get the coconut…this tea is not for me reminds me of the coco chai rooibos that i can’t stand

not rating this because i’m biased but if you like coco chai rooibos i’ll imagine you’ll like this too

I love this tea – it tastes like vacation. I wish they hadn’t stopped selling it when spring ended.

This tea reminds me so much of lemon sugar cookies! Soft and sweet. Doesn’t need anything to add to it. Really super pleasant. Its tropical without being over the top, if you understand. Although I think it is supposed to be more of a tropical taste, it reminds me much more of Christmas.

Nice! With all these spicy combination and the perfect flavour of the lemongrass it’s like a sweet and sour lemon flavour, almost a hot spicy lemonade. Kind of hard to explain. It’s just this tart and sweet fruity lemon tea, a great addition to any tea collection. Just don;t steep it too long or the lemon takes over!

Another tea I tried courtesy of the advent calendar. Unfortunately, not a favourite, although I’m wondering if the sample size of the tea perhaps affected its flavour to some degree as I don’t recall seeing cloves or pineapple in the last batch. I remember liking it alright back in December when my roommate and I compared a bunch of teas one evening, but the last pot of it we shared last night tasted strongly of warm lemongrass, a bit spicy, and that’s about it. Not likely to give this one another shot though, since although I love lemongrass as a flavouring in food, I don’t think it suits me in tea.

I got a sample of this when I ordered Swampwater. It’s a very light coloured tea, which makes me wonder how it will taste. I am glad I got it as a sample. I am not a fan of it. In my opinion it does not have much flavour to it.
