From DAVIDsTEA

“That’s amore.”

Remember the summer you spent in Italy? Sipping espresso on the terrace, catching a ride on the back of a stranger’s Vespa, and of course, trying your first taste of tart, creamy lime gelato. With its fresh, fruity aroma and smooth flavour, this delicious mix of fruit, yogurt, and green tea will bring you right back. Try it iced. On a terrace. While the moon hits your eye.

Ingredients: Apple, sencha green tea, pineapple (pineapple, sugar), lemongrass, artificial creamy lime flavouring.

Steeped the last of this earlier this morning, and put it in my stainless steel tumbler from Teavana leaving the lid open while I got ready for school. I added a tiny bit of vanilla agave. It was perfect temperature when I got to school. The agave really brought out that level of creaminess that I love in this tea. It’s so refreshing, even when hot. This might be my favourite green tea ever (saying something considering I don’t favour greens). I’m sad to see it go and will definitely be repurchasing for the summertime!

This really is a tasty green :)

This is definitely an awesome green.

this was a very surprising tea. thanks so much to scribbles for including this in our exchange!

the tea base in this blend is a sencha, a tea notorious for going bitter if you aren’t sitting by the timer. the first time i tried it (last night) i watched and waited. today was a gong show and i wasn’t as diligent. guess what? no bitterness. nice!

the next hurtle: lime and yogurt with green tea? um, i really was not certain. the name of the tea is perfect. this tea is a creamy, refreshing, NOT over-citrused blend.

today in victoria it was a scorcher, screaming hot with humidity piled on top. this tea was an excellent reboot! very nice indeed david’s teas, you combined a group of complicated elements and created a very nice brew!

I can’t believe how good this is!!! A few days ago I drank it as a hot brew, and I was really surprised how creamy it was, and that the lime was not over-powering or too tart.
I just had it cold brewed and it was delicious. The creaminess was not as prominent, and the lime flavour was perfect!
I foresee future purchases of this one. YUM!!

Oh my! I am learning to love flavoured green tea. And this one is delicious! Perfectly lime & cream to get that lime gelato taste. Lacking in the green tea flavour, but that is perfect for me. I am so pleased with this tea. It was a last minute decision to buy & I’m glad I did.

Sipped this one down too. I can never make this tea last for long. The lime and apple are great together.

This was perfect this morning. Just as wonderful as I remember it being! I am not crazy about Lime Gelato iced, but hot, it is amazing. Lime, lime and more lime. This is truly a spring/summer tea for me and, with it still hovering close to -30 C in the mornings, I need all the spring feelings I can get!

This tea is very nice and does taste like creamy lime gelato or even key lime pie.

I like to use different teas for different occasions, and this one I use for the kind of mornings after the baby wakes up several times in the night, then I have a work deadline in the morning. Actually, I am having that kind of day right now and I am writing tea reviews to avoid it! This tea is my replacement for the handful of chocolate chip cookies or the big piece of cake that I used to grab for. This tea says “it is okay, things are not so bad, have some ‘pie’!” Hey, it’s not Xanex, but it feels awfully good to drink.

It brews very light – so light that at first I was worried about messing it up somehow. But, I think it is just the style. It is also a bit unsettling to see the chunky fruit pieces as they brew. I don’t think there is much caffeine here, since there are so many fruit pieces.

Try it iced as a sample in Saint-Bruno.

Well…. Gelato? Is it possibly disgusting as a tea?
Nope. But it’s nothing new in the taste AND smell.

This one is a copy of Lime Bang in EACH way.
The only change is that this one has a really better tea basis.
The Gunpowder in Lime Bang was poor quality.

Overall, it’s good, but it’s nothing memorable.

lol, i think the novelty of any new dt blends has worn out on me.

I tried this one again today. I had told a friend of mine that I’d tried it previously and wasn’t impressed, she asked me some questions and we came to the conclusion that I likely steeped it wrong. I changed the steep time and water temperature to what she advised was correct for green teas, but the result was still the same. I still found this tea to have a weak smell and a weak flavor. I previously assumed it was because it was a green tea, but I tried DAVIDs Movie Night this week and realized that flavored green teas can pack a hell of a lot of flavor.

Once I steeped it according to my friend’s suggestion, took a sip and discovered it was no better than when I steeped it last week, I added some lime agave, hoping it would bring out the tea’s lime flavor…still no better. After reading all of the reviews for this tea here on Steepster, I’m wondering if I’m still doing something wrong in the way I’m steeping this blend or if I really just don’t love it.

I think I had the same issues with David’s Goji Pop. I just COULDN’T get it to steep red – and every picture or review I’d ever seen of it mentioned that it’s bright red when steeped. I’d talked to different people and was SURE I was brewing it wrong or just drinking the wrong tea because EVERY time I drank it I could taste a light, goji and melon taste but the liquid was crystal clear. I don’t remember what I did differently, but one day I brewed some up in a last ditch attempt to make the freaking tea turn red and low and behold it actually did! And it tasted completely different and much more flavourful too. I have no idea what changed in how I was brewing it though – it just worked. So maybe give it a few more tries fooling around with how you’re steeping it: tea can be funny sometimes. Although, you’re right: you might just not like this one.
