Stopped after work at Value Village today and picked up a tea for the ride/commute home. I was feeling really, really tired so I knew I wanted something really caffeinated but I also wasn’t really feeling like something robustly fruity or overly sweet either so I grabbed this one as a hot tea since it isn’t really fruity or sweet.
Honestly, for the mood I was in and what I was craving I think this worked better for me than any of the other mate/guayusa blend would have but it also wasn’t super enjoyable/easy to get into. The ginger notes were really heavy and more of a spicy ginger than sweet which is really the kind of ginger I don’t like that much personally. Also, the black pepper was actually quite strong too – especially in the finish. Both the pepper/ginger are things I don’t like too much in tea, but I also was fully aware of their presence in this blend when I chose it for myself so I don’t get to be too critical of it either.
Contrarily, the one spice in here that I actually did really enjoy was the turmeric! While it’s somewhat masked in between all of the other savory spices in this, I think it’s actually stronger in this blend than it is in the one named after it, Turmeric Glow.
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 did not think I would like this tea because it is a mate, but the tea guide gave me a sample anyways. I was intrigued but still wasn’t too sure if I liked it or not. Since I purchased that new click travel mug (which is so cool by the way-you just click the top to open and again to close it), you get 1$ tea of the day-so I decided to try a whole mug because sometimes that little sample they give you just isn’t enough to form an opinion. My opinion is that I need to be getting me some more of this awesome soothing tea.
