This time it’s three herbal teas, all centered around a “citrus” theme. Whether this one is “new” in the complete sense of the word is debatable, though – all of the ingredients are actually identical to the Ruby Red blend from a few years back. I THINK it’s just a different proportion of ingredients? It’d be interesting to compare them directly.
I did all three iced – this was probably my least favourite of the three but I didn’t actually dislike it. I just enjoyed it less than the others. It’s actually a huge improvement upon Grapefruit Granita though, so if you were someone looking for a grapefruit tea that didn’t enjoy that one this might be nice to try out. I thought it was pretty accurate to actual grapefruit: very bright and sweet initially but with a stronger somewhat playful bitterness towards the end. I think the bitterness comes from all the chicory in the blend contrasted against the other ingredients, personally.
It might be interesting to use this one in cocktails/mocktails though (with gin?), or perhaps in some kind of baking? Like if you infused it into an icing or something for lemon cake? I think that would probably be REALLY nice.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently 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.
