Summer love. This citrusy-mint tea is refreshingly magical, with sweet apples, cool spearmint, tart gooseberries, orange oil, and petals of marigold and rose. But before you take a sip, we should probably warn you that it’s a bit of a love potion. For some people, it seems to turn regular summer evenings into dreamlike nights of romance and enchantment. Ice it and see what happens. Caffeine-free.

I woke up this morning with the slight inkling that I may be getting a cold. I shouldn’t be surprised. I work with three year olds, and it’s November. It’s right around the time I’m due for one.

My spirits were lifted in the afternoon when I received my advent calendar and goodies from DT in the mail. Along with it were my three chosen samples. Here’s #1: Midsummer Night’s Dream.

My SO and I got a strong whiff of grapefruit as soon as the package was opened. I thought this was strange, since there is no grapefruit in it. I really liked how it smelled refreshing, and I felt like the artificial flavour didn’t hit me right away.

I dialed the kettle up to 95 degrees C (203 F) and steeped 2.5 tsp in 2 c of water for seven minutes— though I have to admit I couldn’t resist a taste test after five minutes.

At five minutes, I was disappointed. There was hardly any flavour, and little to no colour. I put the basket back in and waited a little longer.

After seven minutes, I could taste some berries and a bit of mint. The blandness is gone! There’s a certain golden berry element that reminds me of Caramel Spice Tea that David’s had out four years ago. Perhaps this is one of my favourite flavours that I’ve never sought out.

All in all, a solid tea. I’m not disappointed.

I’m going to use my extra 1.25 tsp to make a tiny amount of cold brew. I’m excited to see how it differs.

Oh no, I hope you can fight that cold off like no one’s business. Your advent calendar should be a comforting companion.

Got this as a sample from a recent David’s order. It’s an interesting mixture of flavours. There’s spearmint, apple and gooseberries mixed with floral notes of marigold, safflower and rose. It’s described as citrusy and when I first opened the package, it definitely had a prominent orange-like aroma. There’s a nice tartness that comes from the gooseberries and floral ingredients. It’s not overly minty but it does have a nice hint of it. All in all, I enjoyed the cup. Not sure that I would buy a full bag of it though. Maybe if it was on sale. In general, sweeter trumps tangy for me.

This smells wonderful, grapefuity. It seems a little light in flavour at the recommended strength, but I did just eat some very spicy food, so that could be throwing my taste buds off. I have never had anything with gooseberry before, I’m just assuming that is what smells and tastes so much like grapefruit. The upfront flavour is citrus (grapefruit/gooseberry?) with an apple background and exactly the right amount of mint to make it all work. I drank it hot, as it’s cold outside, but I think it would be fantastic iced.

I don’t like this tea whatsoever. I really have a hard time understanding why its a top-seller and fan favourite. It’s kind of bitter and just BLAH tasting

Another sample. The dry leaf smells amazing. Dad asked what I was smelling and put his nose in and said it smelled like watermelon. Personally, I’m not getting that. I think what I’m smelling is gooseberries? It’s definitely a sweet, fruit smell. This ended up cooling off quite a bit because I got distracted when Mom asked for my help. I want this to be more flavorful. I think I would like it if it was stronger but worry that this almost medicine taste I’m also getting would also increase.

Another one from my collection of iced tea pitcher packs. This tea is tangy and slightly sour without the metallic, over-the-top pucker-power of hibiscus. The flavour notes are primarily citrus and what I suppose is probably gooseberry, though I’ve never actually eaten gooseberries so I can’t really judge. There’s a also a lightly minty undertone mixed with apple. Despite the sour notes this tea needed surprisingly little sweetener and the boyfriend really enjoyed it too.

I bought a pitcher pack of this tea so I could get the 5 for 20$ thing. First of all I had to leave the steeper in the pitcher overnight for it to not taste like water with faint orange taste. Not a favourite of mine even when it has more taste, it reminded me of a childhood snack (which snack I can’t remember) that I didn’t like. I think overall I’m not a fan of citrus teas. The spearmint did add an interesting twist though!

One of my absolute favourites. It’s sort of sweet, a bit of sour, a little minty at the end. Perfect!

The was one of the teas I bought on my first visit to DAVID’s. Again, I purchased way too much, but I’m almost through it now.

Had this cold brewed for the first time. First notes were a powerful orange, but about half way through the gooseberry started coming through. Most of the after taste is that pleasant sour of gooseberries. We had a gooseberry bush when I was growing up, but ever since we moved when I was eight I haven’t really heard much mention of them so I was really excited to see them listed as an ingredient. Funnily enough, I’ve never really picked up on them in this tea before now. I may buy more of this eventually, but after having it in my cupboard for about 7 months now, I’ll be happy to have it gone for a little while.
