drank Lychee Bellini by DAVIDsTEA
70 tasting notes

Went for a cold brew of this one today. Used 0.75 tsp of tea for my 12 oz cup. Put it in the fridge cold and let it sit for an hour and a half. Came out nice and flavourful after this, looking a dark amber in colour. Did need to add a touch of sugar to cut the slight bitterness though, but I also did so in the hot version so not a big surprise there. Just be careful when adding sugar, because I can see this getting too sweet very easily.

I think the cold brew might have preserved more of the lychee flavour (not positive though because I do not know what a lychee tastes like), but the mango isn’t quite as prevalent in the cold version as it was in the hot I previously tasted. It’s pretty close in flavour though, hot or cold, and both are pleasant enough to drink, so I guess I don’t have much of a preference and it’s more dependent on the weather or my mood for which I’ll choose.

Updated cup count from the 27g pitcher pack: 2 (Still lots left to play around with)

Also, upped my rating of this from 70 to 72 because I like that I can enjoy this fairly equally both hot or cold.

Iced 8 min or more 12 OZ / 354 ML

Just getting into the whole loose leaf tea experience. (Thank you favorite sister of mine for getting me started on this journey…)

Since I’m a beginner when it comes to most teas, I don’t have a very good understanding of the flavors yet, but I hope I will get there. Right now I’m basically at “tastes good” “tastes less good” “tastes awful” lol….

Anyway, have been an avid tea drinker prior to now as well, but mostly only have experience with typical grocery store teabag selections. My old standby’s being Tetley’s Orange Pekoe and Celestial Seasoning’s Sleepytime.

My dislikes are: Ginger, licorice, overwhelmingly strong mint flavors, overwhelmingly strong anything flavors really.

At the moment I have 31 loose leaf tea varieties to try. (All single servings or sampler packs cause I’m too scared to get anything larger!) Though, I anticipate I’ll be getting plenty more because this experiment is too fun!

Please note:

I’m very picky when it comes to tastes so I’ll likely run into many flavors that I don’t personally like. I also tend to find most teas too strong and thus will likely use less tea than suggested while I experiment with the loose leaf teas.

Also, I’m more-so writing my reviews for myself like a diary, so I can keep track of how to best prepare the flavors to my liking and which flavors I might want to buy again.

Please keep this in mind if you’re reading my reviews. Thanks!

As for recommendations:
Recommended – I can drink it without issue.
Not recommended – I probably made a face while drinking it or gave up part way through.
