I’ve worked through all the caffeinated teas in my swap with Emilie, so I’m taking a caffeine break for a couple weeks per doctor’s orders (blech). Thankfully, I have lot of teas to get me through thanks to some very generous tea mail from vallhallow. I’ve been saving these and am excited to finally dig in.
James’ favorite tea ever is Magic Dragon from DAVIDsTEA. Since it’s been discontinued, I would love to find another blend that’s similar. I was hoping this would be it, or close, but it’s not close enough. We tried them side-by-side and he said that the Dragon Fruit Dream doesn’t have enough hibiscus. It’s noticeably lighter in color, more of a soft pink than the deep red of hibiscus. I tried it both hot and cold and I can’t say that I’m a fan honestly. Of course, hibiscus teas aren’t a favorite hot and can be hit or miss for me when cold. This had that dusty background note that so many herbals seem to share. James liked it cold, so he’s planning to finish it off. This is one I might have purchased to try at some point, seeing that it has dragon fruit, so I’m glad to be able to try it before buying a larger amount.
