Day 15 of DavidsTea herbal advent calendar. This blend was so appealing to me when it came out! I didn’t buy it because of the sulfites warning – sulfites are a potential migraine trigger – but I’m happy to have a little bit to at least sample!
I find this too sweet and juicy for a bedtime tea, but very enjoyable otherwise. It’s got a strong, juicy lychee flavor with a supporting note of lemongrass. It’s also lightly floral on the back end. The flavors in this are cleaner and more complex than a lot of DT herbal blends, and even though it’s sweet it doesn’t taste sugary or overly sweet. I really like it, especially cold. It makes for an exceptionally good tea soda too. Bummer that there are sulfites in this and I couldn’t get it.
Flavors: Floral, Lemongrass, Lychee
