Jungle fever
Want to take a walk on the wild side? Try this intriguingly rich black tea. It’s laced with all kinds of delicious jungle treasures, from dark coffee beans and energizing yerba maté to tart hibiscus, fruity mango and super-healthy açaipowder. Plus there’s the sweet, rich taste of lucuma, a delicious Peruvian fruit known as “Gold of the Incas.” Aside from its ancient healing powers and health benefits, lucuma is also an amazing maple-like sweetener that’s naturallylow in sugar. Sweet.

Ingredients: Black Tea, black currant, mango, barberry, coffee bean, juniper berry, hibiscus, roasted yerba mate, lucuma powder, acerola powder, baobab fruit powder, acai powder, coffee flavor, natural strawberry flavor, natural and artificial plum, sugar cane and cherry flavour.

First sip:
I didn’t think this would taste coffeeish more than fruity, but it does. Tastes like a lighter version of coffee puerh.

I put it in to steep for a little longer just to see if more of the fruitiness will come out. After doing so, I can kinda taste the tartness of the hibiscus. But to me it’s just a lighter version of coffee puerh. Which I don’t mind, it’s just not as amazing as it should be with this amount of ingredients

I had this tea again today, and I have to up my rating for it. Previously, I didn’t not appreciate the coffee taste, and I have since grown to like coffee in certain forms. It certainly is not my go to mate, nor my go-to coffee tea (those would be Electric Lemonade and Espresso Yourself, respectively), but I like this far better now. It does have a lot going on, and I think maybe the removal of an ingredient or two wouldn’t hurt, but this was a pleasant cup this time.

Have you guys ever tried chocolate covered coffee beans? (If not, you really should) This is exactly what this tea tastes like! There is also a slight sweetness from the berries, which just brings the coffee and chocolate together because it is not tangy at all (That wouldn’t go well with this tea anyways). Mate is a good base for this tea because the pure mate tea flavour goes great with the other flavours and give the tea a good flavour balance.

I think this is a great tea for fall, and also a good morning tea, because there’s lots of caffeine in there :)
It blends well with coffee chai

A few nights ago we were at the mall getting my mother-in-law’s iPod checked out (silly buttons that don’t want to work) and I decided to stop by and have a sniff of the “new” fall flavors. I went in expecting to walk out with at least some tea (needed to stock up on pumpkin chai at the very least!) but not this one. I remember reading its description when it first came out and thinking that’s waaaay to many ingredients, but when I had a chance to really smell it I was intrigued enough to get a small amount to sample. (Had a great chat with the assistant while she measured out my order; there’s no way I could work at a tea shop… I’d have no money left!! :D)

Dry this tea is very visually interesting; filled with coffee beans and berries, more so than I had originally expected compared to the amount of mate. The strong aroma is an interesting mix of the fresh, sweetness of the fruits and the dark rich notes that come from the coffee and the roasted mate. But there is a definite artificial note that kind of hangs throughout this tea, one of the previous reviewers likened it to cherry cough drops, which for me wasn’t far off the mark. But it wasn’t off putting enough to stop me from trying it.

When brewed the liquor comes out a murky brown, filled with particulates from the various powders that are part of the ingredient list. The scent changed every breath I took: first sniff… “Wow coffee!”; second sniff “Lots of berries”; third? “Oh there’s the mate… and more berries.” There was still that artificial cherry tang as well but it’s less potent steeped then it was dry.

My first sip though was quite disappointing; after the strong showy aroma of both the dry and steeped versions I was expecting an explosion of flavor in my mouth… but alas I was out of luck (I even tried a longer steeping time, doubling what was recommended, it still didn’t help. In the end the flavor was still quite weak and just didn’t match the scent profile.) The light mouth-feel lead into berries, berries and more berries; but they’re so mixed it’s hard to really pick out one distinct flavor. And sadly I found the artificial cherry flavor to be predominant, almost entirely overwhelming the coffee and mate notes underneath it. Plus, it left a very off aftertaste in my mouth which is not a great way to finish a new tea experience.

I think this might be a case of too many ingredients leading to an overall muddled tea that just, for me, lacked balance. Which is too bad, I think the idea of a fruity coffee flavored tea to be a wonderful idea, but unfortunately DT’s execution came up short.

I see that this tea has a much lower rating than I would have expected!

This tea is very good, I really enjoy it’s flavour it’s not to strong, but not to weak.

If you like what I find to be a small coffee like hint to a fruity mate (Kind of like main squeeze but not as strong).

If you’re afraid you won’t like it since you don’t like coffee, I myself really dislike coffee. So, I think that if it’s been catching your eyes you should try it!

I’m glad I did.

I am a BIG coffee drinker… I was curious about this one but I’m not a fan after a couple tastes. I preferred it cold, I think it cut the fruity taste down, and I honestly did not taste coffee.

The berries really overpower the tea, I don’t like the artificial smell/taste of the fruit in this one.

This was probably my least favourite tea in the fall collection. I don’t drink coffee (…which is why I drink tea :p) and do not like the taste at all. I decided to try it anyways after my positive reaction to Honeydew Mate but unfortunately didn’t like it. I managed to finish the cup am not in any rush to steep another!
