326 Tasting Notes
This is…okay. The fact that the tea base is shockingly similar to Elderflower Spritz does turn me off it quite a bit actually, but it is quite a bit better none the less. Very floral, with jasmine and a bit of a moringa vibe. It’s not overpowering though. There’s a nice, subtle peach note towards the end of the sip that’s a bit redeeming. All in all, probably not something I’d try again.
Flavors: Floral, Peach
Oh wow, this is amazing! I was hugely skeptical about DAVID’s ability to actual pull off a grapefruit tea, but this absolutely tastes like grapefruit juice. Not too tart, it’s just perfect. I’d be hesitant to brew this hot, because who honestly wants hot grapefruit, but as a summer thirst quencher this has my vote. Will certainly be buying rather a lot of this before it disappears.
I’m not 100% sure how I feel about this one. I initially had a small sample at DAVID’s and there was something about it that I didn’t like. Even then, I ended up topping up my travel mug with it and it really started to grow on me. Overall, it was really fruity. The only thing that really stood out for me were some juicy orange notes. There’s a little bit of a red grape vibe as well. It’s not tart at all—basically like drinking juice. I don’t think I’d pick any up, but I did enjoy what I had.
Flavors: Fruity, Orange
FINALLY tried this as a tea latte (that only took 8 months). Really glad I did too. This is like vanilla ice cream with a hint of mango at the end. Slight camomile taste, but not detrimental to the flavour. Despite being hot, this has a really nice cooling effect. Really glad that this tea has grown on me during its stay in my cupboard. About enough for one more brew, which I’m rather looking forward to.
Flavors: Creamy, Mango, Vanilla
Strawberry Colada tea lemonade! Steeped 5 tsp. of this in 1/2 c. of hot water for 6 minutes, poured over a large glass of ice, and topped up with lemonade. This REALLY brought out the pineapple. I’ve had this before and found it very complex, but this was almost entirely pineapple. At the beginning of the sip there’s a bit of mango and some strawberry at the end. Any coconut was entirely gone. This was still rather tart as well. I definitely enjoyed it this way, but wouldn’t do it every time.
Flavors: Mango, Pineapple, Strawberry, Tart
This definitely goes over better iced rather than hot. All the same, this was certainly enjoyable hot. A little too sweet for my tastes—probably why it works so well cold—and I wouldn’t mind some more sour either.
Flavors: Candy, Fruity, Pleasantly Sour
This isn’t something I’d typically go for, but as I was sharing this cup with my boyfriend I figured we should go for something he might enjoy.
Overall this tastes very green and earthy. It’s reasonably light and refreshing, like eating bean sprouts at times. Maybe the faintest floral notes. I don’t think I’d get this again, but it wasn’t horrible.
Flavors: Earth, Plants
Got this iced at DAVID’s yesterday. Very nice, light iced tea. Definitely prominently a creamy lime flavour. Also got a hint of pineapple of well. The tea element is slightly noticeable, but not hugely in your face. Probably wouldn’t buy any, but it was nice.
Flavors: Creamy, Lime, Pineapple
I enjoyed this one more this cup. There’s was more pear and less cranberry and it lacked that off-putting airplane food pastry flavour that I got last time.
Flavors: Cranberry, Pear
