Arby Advent Day 6
The name of this tea sounds so herby, so I’ve never been tempted to purchase it in any of my DT orders. I’m happy to report that it actually is rather tasty. It tastes like a lightly fruity tulsi blend. The main fruit I feel like I can taste is pineapple, but that’s probably wrong. I’m enjoying it warm and actually totally would order some during a future sale.
Read what Roswell had to say about this one and agree – didn’t really strike me as a “tranquil” blend – it was very much, IMO, a vibrant juice tea. And actually, a pretty decent one at that. I couldn’t pinpoint exactly the flavours I was tasting, but I enjoyed it enough to resteep twice, which is very impressive for an herbal tea! I’m not well-versed in what tulsi tastes like, but nothing stuck out to me so either it blended in well, or the flavour just wasn’t really present. I’d suggest drinking it for being delicious, and ignoring the name.
Not a fan of this one. I’m getting notes of apple, raspberry, and strawberry with a strange peppery taste from the tulsi. It’s like they tried to make a capri-sun inspired tea with a savory element. Bleh (Hope this isn’t in next year’s advent calendar)
Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Pepper, Raspberry, Strawberry, Tulsi
#adventageddon Day Seventeen – 5/6
Another one today that I didn’t really love, but I didn’t hate it either. I just think it’s a pretty generic red fruit flavour (maybe leaning a bit more strawberry) without having enough tulsi in it to translate into the taste and warrant the name “Tulsi Tranquility”. I want more basil-y goodness! I did have a few sips where it came through nice and clear though, so that was 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 and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
