So the Valentine’s Day collection is out now!
Not gonna lie, I feel like it’s a little early this year and I wish that the Mocktail/Dry January collection had been given more time to breathe – but I’m still very excited about this tea regardless.
I totally have some bias because I personally love rose flavoured tea blends, but even with that aside I think this is such a elegantly simple and very approachable floral blend. For people familiar with DT’s classics, I think the easiest and fastest way to explain this tea is that it’s basically Cream of Earl Grey but with the bergamot swapped for a soft rose flavouring. Not perfume-y or aggressive, just a nice hint that really compliments that silky vanilla note!
If you do like rose, I think you’ll be satisfied with the clarity of flavour and amount present but if you’re on the fence about florals then I think it’s a delicate enough touch to be a good way to dip your toes in. Hopefully that perfect middle ground. Plus, super full bodied and brisk black tea that you can taste in the cup and because it’s not really sweet/sugary you really get a lot of control with your steeping preferences and additions. I love this as a latte, but it’s a great teapot tea too!
…and I’m pretty proud of the name. I think it’s one of the cutest I’ve come up with in a while.
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 and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
