From DAVIDsTEA

Body out of whack? This sweet, soothing rooibos is here to set you straight. It contains a generous dose of probiotics*, which support digestion and immunity as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. And since it’s made with shelf-stable probiotics, it doesn’t need to be refrigerated. With its swirl of creamy vanilla, cooling mint and cleansing sarsaparilla, this is one digestive tea that tastes as good as it makes you feel. Best of both worlds!

*One 16 oz serving contains 1 billion probiotics (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086). Daily consumption of at least 1 billion probiotics aids in digestion as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

ingredients
Rooibos, sarsaparilla root, cinnamon, peppermint, licorice r oot, organic inulin, Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086 (GanedenBC30), vanilla bean, natural vanilla and caramel flavouring

Price per 50g: $14.98

I was prepared to hate this. I didn’t buy any off the website because of some low reviews, so I figured I’d smell some in store and decide then. Dry sniff is really nice! A mellow vanilla mint, with that sarsaparilla root herbness chilling in the back. Grabbed a small sample bag and brewed it last night: I like this! Nothing earth-shattering, but a really nice evening tea, calming on the stomach (I have digestive issues sometimes and this can’t hurt, right?). The licorice root comes out a little in the cup but it helps with the night relaxing part. I can’t speak to the probiotics part of this and honestly it might all be nonsense what with those cultures needing to be alive and yada yada. Either way I will buy some more before this disappears.

The smell and taste reminds me of toothpaste or mouthwash. The vanilla tastes artificial to me, thankfully I only had enough for one cup because I don’t think I could drink more of it. Managed to finish most of the mug so it wasn’t completely disgusting, though I wouldn’t buy it again.

This is not something I would expect to like – but I tried it anyway – just so I could review it. I had to add sugar of course, but it’s not bad. Drinkable. I taste the vanilla more than the mint, and I do get a taste of rootbeer as well. But not overly powering. I wouldn’t get more of this tea, but its just okay.

I was a little hesitant to try this tea because it smelled like mouthwash and I hate to say it but it kind of tastes like it too. I like that it has probiotics in it but it is not a tea that I freak over so I will stick to taking my pill version of prebiotics and probiotics. I am glad that I redeemed my free rewards on this one as it is a very expensive tea. For me, it is not worth the $15/50g price tag and I will most probably be giving away the remaining tea I have.

Steeped up ‘Grandpa Style’ at work the other day.

Oddly, with a longer steep time and at a cooler temperature I actually kind of get more of those vanilla and rootbeer notes that I felt like I was missing out on the first time I tried this one! Also, several people have suggested to me doing it up as an iced latte to exaggerate that quality, so I think I’m gonna try it! I’ll report if that pushes those root beer notes to the forefront and further…

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.

I had a seriously awful day yesterday. Today, while not much better, is calmer and less chaotic.
The rant – I’ve been weathering the flu, my new boss started working on Tuesday, and we were short staffed. Students poured through the door en masse, meetings were booked in our rooms improperly and faculty weren’t happy with us. The dividing wall in our presentation space is broken so being down a room meant we were double booked in some cases. and then a complaint was submitted by who I assume is a student at the school, after they deemed us unfit public servants having witnessed us attempting to navigate the winds. It was so busy that I didn’t have an opportunity to eat lunch until 4pm, and even then it was while I discussed updates with a colleague and my interim boss(not new boss). Sighs.
Honestly, we are extremely short staffed or else I would have been at home clinging to my bed. What a great way to make a fabulous first impression on the guy who decides whether my contract is renewed in April. Ha!
When I arrived home, my driveway had frozen over like a skating rink. and I had a blowout argument with a friend over text. She’s on vacation out of country or else I’d have called to sort it out. She’s a colleague who I’ll see on a daily basis in a few weeks.
Ugh. Ok. I’m done.
This tea? I needed something cleansing and healthy. and caffeine free. On my way home from work. Just what I needed to keep my company during the train ride.
In terms of a rating, I really have no opinion on it. It tasted rather herbaceous with a nice punch of licorice. A mild background of mint, which I had hoped would be stronger. It could be that this sickness of mine muted things. The cinnamon was there as well, neither good nor bad in that moment. Some honey was added as well. I figured this hack cough of mine needed some.
I’m not in a rush to run out and buy this one based on taste. If I knew that the probiotics contained within were of a useful variety, then perhaps I’d be more excited.
It’s ok. I’m glad to have tried a cup and that it was there for me in my hour of need!

Rosehips

Eeek, what a day. I hope things even out soon.

Evol Ving Ness

Truly the day from hell. Good on you for going in anyway. You deserve a medal for that and other high accolades. Hope you feel much much better soon.

@Rosehips and @Evol VIng Ness
Thank you! I generally get a last wind right about this time. So at the moment I feel pretty ok! Will pay for not already being asleep tomorrow methinks…

I may be alone in thinking this, but Probiotea reminds me somewhat of Santa’s Secret, but without the black tea base. I had low expectations for it initially, but it really exceeded those expectations, despite it having a base of red rooibos (I prefer green). The mint-vanilla combination was highly enjoyable, but the steep price point is what’s really going to distance me from this tea, unfortunately.
