From DAVIDsTEA

Take a trip to the Florida Keys with this all-natural lime-spiked tea. With apple, citrus zest, elderberries and tangy hibiscus, it reminds of us a sweet and refreshing lime soda. Or the perfect piece of key lime pie. Or maybe a tart scoop of lime sorbet. Any way you slice it, it’s the perfect way to sip away those winter blues. Try mixing it into your favourite cocktails for a welcome taste of citrusy sunshine.

Price per 50g: $7.50

I declared today as sipdown day and sipdown day it is! Yes. Three teas sipped down is a success for me hahha
But I am slowly getting rid of my teas! Packing them up into smaller bags to give to friends. I think I’m almost to a 2 digit number! And to think today I started off with like 175 teas wow.

This tea smells good, almost like Midsummer Night’s Dream? Definitely looks like it’d taste much better iced though. It does have a bit of a musty undertone to it, but still bright from the lime.
Tastes of dusty lime haha. I don’t know. It’s the teas that have dried fruit that always have that wet basement/dank undertone to it. No matter how bright the fruit is, it’s like wet basement.

((that wet basement would probably be gone if I iced this though… but I’m just way too lazy))

tea-sipper

Whoa, that means almost 75 teas gone in a day to get to double digits?!

I know right??
Well, I sorta cheated haha. I have a bunch of teas that I just have 5-10g of that I’ve already tasted and didn’t really care for. So now I have nearly 100 small baggies of tea samples that I’ll take to work with me on my last day :)

Sipdown! And what a happy sipdown it is!

When I was first getting into tea, a friend of mine made me a cup of key lime pie flavored tea. I hadn’t heard of novelty tea flavors at this point, and this blend was fantastic. Limey and creamy and just scrumptious. So, when I bought DavidsTea’s Key Lime I was expecting a similar reaction.

How can I say this nicely? I dread this tea. It’s not that it tastes particularly bad, it’s just not key lime and I don’t enjoy the tart cinnamon flavor that is there. Made today at work, the sour edge was the closest to lime it’s ever been and it wasn’t bad “cold steeped” (read: left in a mug of cold water while I went to a meeting). But yeah. Soooo happy to be done with this one and feeling just the tiniest bit proud that I finished it off myself and didn’t pawn it off on a friend.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Sour, Tart

Preparation
3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
Kristal

If my memory serves me correctly. I had this tea iced in the summertime. I remember a very gross bitter taste-possibly from the rind of the lime. Yuck.

sundaysipping

I’m so glad I’m not the only one! I wanted so much to like this but … no, just no. :-(

Evol Ving Ness

I had a in-store sample of this not so long ago and wth. Yes, exactly that reaction. It’d be better as a soda or fizzy something, but hot tea, no.
Somewhere in my tea cabinet, I have a small amount of dry leaf which I had bough to try before the sample.. I’m in no rush.

tigress_al

I am not sure if this still holds true, but you used to be able to return tea with a receipt

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, tigress_al. I wonder if I had the presence of mind to keep the receipt?

Not bad. I had this cold brewed last night and it was okay. It wasn’t anything I’d seek out, but it was a refreshing cold brew on a warm afternoon. It had a lime & light hibiscus flavour. There was no bitterness and it wasn’t overly tart, which I appreciated.

Sipdown!

Key lime is a flavour I’ve only recently discovered I liked when I was looking for a new dessert to try and taught myself how to make key lime pie. This tea has big pieces of lime peel in it and I ended up breaking some of the larger ones up so that it would measure properly in my tea scoop. The flavour, not surprisingly, is very limey and it’s distinctly key lime, rather than Persian lime. It’s quite tart and tangy so I might sweeten it a little bit next time. I might also try this as an iced tea.

The short answer is if you enjoy lime you’ll enjoy this tea – if you don’t, you won’t.

Never ending iced tea to keep cool! I cold brewed this tea for about 10 hours. The smell of the dry leaf is very much lime, as well as the brewed tea. However, when I went to taste it I got a bitter, chemical taste with lime at the end. I think it’s from the rind of the lime. Maybe I don’t like lime, but I found this to be very unpleasant. My husband tried mixing some beer with this tea (1/3 iced tea, 2/3 beer) and he liked it, so I told him the pitcher is his. Otherwise I’m just going to put a spoonful of this tea in each of my pitchers until it’s used up. Def not a repurchase for me.

The taste of this tea is true to its namesake. It’s very tart, like mouth-puckering tart. I did not care for this iced, and hot lime-flavored tea doesn’t sound even remotely appealing to me. I sold the ~80 grams I had left.

First of all, LLAP, Leonard Nimoy. :(

Secondly, the dry leaf smells fantabulous. Bursting with citrus, especially lime. But I’m always skeptical when it comes to these kinds of fruit blends from DAVIDs because they tend to be overwhelmingly sweet.

Cold brewed overnight, this is pretty good, but doesn’t taste nearly as good as the dry leaf smells. A little sweet for my liking but it’s not overkill. The cold brew itself smells and tastes like pink lemonade, particularly Minute Maid’s frozen variety that I’d sometimes have as a kid.

EDIT: I stupidly posted this under Sunny Citrus because I thought I dumped that one in my jug. Apologies!

It broke my heart coming home from work and that being the first thing I saw when logging into my computer… I just wanna go back to putting up sales tags, when I was blissfully unaware.

Aww, yeah. :(

Super fan of this tea hot with a dash of agave. Love the not overly powerful lime flavor. Unfortunately, i made this iced, and i absolutely hated it. The lime became super tart and unbearable… Will stick to making it hot!

Picked up some of this out of curiosity, as usual (but especially since Sil liked it). And overall, I think it’s not bad at all. Tough to beat the liminess of Watermelon Lime Slushie, which I drank at the same time, but it was certainly lime-flavoured, not too tart, and not heavy on “irrelevant” ingredients. I’m just not big into herbals/fruit teas at all any more, so it didn’t really pique my interest beyond sampling it, but I’m certainly happy I did. As long as Lime Gelato sticks around, though (please tell me it’s not discontinued?), I’m good for a lime tea. (I’d go with Butiki’s or 52teas’ versions, but both are not readily available. Sigh.)

lime gelato is still around… i just like herbal options sometimes in the evening or when i feel sick.

So I have had this cold brewed, iced, in a chocolate bar, and now hot. So far the taste has been consistent to the fruit with the exception of this hot cup which is a little bit weaker in lime and a little bit stronger in hibiscus (not too strong as it only shows up at the end of the sip but it’s still a tad noticeable whereas in others it was not). It’s nice but I don’t love lime enough to stock this anytime soon.
