The other iced tea that I had the same night I had Super Charge; after that tea I wanted something familiar/comforting but still wanted to cross something off the list. This was the perfect solution because I’m not only very familiar with Earl Grey but I’ve had rooibos versions of Earl Grey before as well; just not from DAVIDsTEA.
This is great iced; really smooth and very strong bergamot notes. Without the black base of a traditional Earl Grey the bergamot REALLY takes over the cup and completely masks the flavour of the rooibos so it’s all your tasting. The only thing I’d really want to change, personally, is add a bit of vanilla or cream to it so it’s more London Fog/Cream of Earl Grey like and a bit less one dimension. You can always add some milk too to sort of get the same affect, though. That’s just nitpicking, as well.
My on shift routine I’ve sort of settled into is something strongly caffeinated at the start of my shift to sort of transition from job #1 to job #2 and not burn out immediately, which is working, and then for the end of the shift I’ll make something without any caffeine so that I’m not up all night and can pass out right away at 11ish when I get home from work/the bus home. Gotta get up at 6AM every morning for Job #1; so sleep is important. I’m liking this routine thus far.
Friendly reminder that I’m not currently numerically rating DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently seasonally employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Earl Grey
