Punch up your iced tea game with a wave of juicy black grapes and a hint of tart berry. Beautifully blended with delicate white tea for a balanced finish, this mouth-watering refresher is the perfect way to add a touch of sophistication to your summer sipping. Our favourite part?

Iced Tea Sipdown (256)
We decided to try a new cupcake place today and one of the cupcakes was a vanilla cake with grape frosting which just seemed so weird but so interesting. With that calling my name, I heard this tea calling me as well.
I was excited for a grape flavor after I had quite a lot of success with the cupcake. Unfortunately, this was sorta grape-y, mostly hibiscus though and then just soap. Me and the white tea bases that companies use don’t always get along it seems and despite my high hopes, that was the case here.
Last of the new teas!
This one is pretty simple in terms of flavour profile, which I appreciate. It’s just a solid “purple grape” flavour with a tiny hint of berry, though the berry really only serves to make the grape element feel more well rounded/balanced and deeper. It’s fairly juicy with some sweetness, though I do think this is the least sweet of the three new blends. There’s also enough white tea in here for it to definitely take on some drying mouthfeel and bitter flavour if you steep it too long or with boiling water…
I far prefer this one iced or cold brewed over hot, but it’s not terrible hot. Just a lot more refreshing when prepared the other way. I actually had this one today, as a cold brew, after work with some whipped cream on top and that was pretty nice. It reminded me a lot of the grape ice cream slush that Sonic carried years ago. I’m not sure if the Ice Cream slushes were all that popular, but I know that I liked that one so it was a bit nostalgic for me. Though, fair warning, dairy does curdle in this tea so it was more of a whipped cream floated on top with the knowledge that it was going to curdle at the contact point.
Oh, it also steeps a pretty purple colour because of the butterfly pea flower in the blend!
Sadly I feel like this will probably be the least popular of the new teas since grape teas historically haven’t been super well loved, but I think it’s actually quite 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.
