drank Frozen Raspberry by DAVIDsTEA
70 tasting notes

Not sure what possessed me to try a cold steep of this on a cold day, but here we are.

The dry tea in the bag smelled super strong and my nose was not pleased. It’s not one that I could just smell in the bag and enjoy the scent of. Fortunately, the smell during and after steeping was much more pleasant and doesn’t overwhelm the senses to the point of almost gagging.

As for preparation, steeped 0.75 tsp of this tea cold in my 12 oz cup in the fridge for 90 minutes and now have a tasty pinkish red drink. Very reminiscent of a raspberry freezie or snowcone while cold, though less sweet than a freezie and slighly tart—like very slightly. Plenty sweet enough to drink on its own, but leaves a lingering artificial flavour. Refreshing is a good way to describe this drink.

Also worth mentioning: I took a peek after around 1 hour of cold steeping and noticed the yogurt pieces weren’t quite dissolved, so I dipped the infuser basket a few times to break up the pieces and put it back into the fridge for the extra 30 minutes. Seems to have done the trick. Not really sure if I taste the yogurt or not though.

Cup count (12 oz) from the 27g pitcher pack: 1 (Lots more to play around with)

Would I buy this one again? Maybe, still want to try it hot too, but I do prefer this to their Just Peachy flavour I tried yesterday.

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.
