From DAVIDsTEA

Inspired by the tradition of finding a mandarin in the toe of your Christmas stocking, this holiday blend is—as you may have guessed—delectably sweet & citrusy. Made with real orange pieces, whole red raspberries, rooibos & pretty hibiscus blossoms, every sip is a festive celebration. Add a splash (or two or three) of bubbly for that true mimosa flavour, or sparkling water if you’d prefer a mocktail. Bottom’s up.

What makes it great

The whole raspberries really make the orange flavour pop.

This citrusy blend is caffeine-free, making it perfect for everyone.

It’s an amazing base for cocktails, and not just mimosas.

Apple (apple, citric acid), Rooibos, Hibiscus blossoms, Natural blood orange flavouring, Orange pieces, Rose pepper, Raspberries, Marigold blossoms, Stevia extract.

How it tastes

Deep citrus featuring a hint of red fruit and a slightly boozy finish.

I was almost blown away by the flavor of this tea. It didn’t smell that great in the package, but as a beverage it was delightful. Super sweet citrus and rooibos. Lovely hot, but it would also be fabulous cold. Buying more of this later!

It snowed a lot in NE Ohio today. I spent most of the morning shoveling the sidewalk and driveway. My boss wanted me to work at home, but silly me, I left the laptop at work. I couldn’t move my tiny car out of the driveway, so my parents were kind enough to lend me their AWD. Even with that, the drive to the office took over an hour. After the long morning/early afternoon, I wanted a tea to sip while starting the shift off. I grabbed for this one and it was immediately the perfect choice.

This tea is bursting with that strong orange juice vibe. There’s a hint of cream, reminding me of an orange Julius. I really enjoy this cup. I had this one hot, but I’m going to make a batch of cold brew tonight for the office tomorrow.

Sweet, bright and citrusy! I tried this hot this morning and I love the fruitiness of this rooibos based tea. It does contain stevia for a little sweetness, but I think the fruit is also lending some natural sugar as well, and the citrus flavour covers the stevia aftertaste for me, so it’s not offensive. I love it hot, but I bet it will be even more delicious iced!

This one smelled great, but the flavor was a little tart and strange for me. I added some oat milk, which added a creamy element that it was definitely missing. I personally prefer a lighter, fresher orange flavor. This one was heavy, tangy, candy-like, and artificial. I’ve had it several times now, and I’m just not a fan. Maybe the rooibos base and flavoring don’t get along well. I’m not sure, but there’s something weird happening here.

I wasn’t a fan of this one either, but I might try it iced with an addition to cut the artificial sweetness. I’ve been listening to Steeping Around podcast (Maya tea) where they drink a lot of iced tea in the Arizona heat. He’s got some interesting suggestions for adding to iced tea, muddled herbs, booze, fruit juice. Maybe I’ll play around with this mimosa to sip it down.

AJRimmer

Those are some good ideas! I tossed this in my swap box because I guess I give up too easily, but I might try some of their suggestions on some other teas I have!

(DavidsTea 48)

Finally picked this up after seeing some positive reviews; definitely wish I’d have been able to only get a few grams of it to try. It pretty much tastes like a citrus rooibos, with a really nice, bright, sweet orange flavour. I’m not sure if the raspberry adds anything in particular. The stevia didn’t really bother me, but the rooibos was definitely offputting, as it typically is. The rest will be destined for iced tea that, fingers crossed, I do not have to drink.

For anyone not averse to the flavour of red rooibos, this tea probably hits the mark well.

Cold Brew!

One of the first things I did after the end of advent season was dig out a few of the more seasonal/wintery teas that I had been craving but hadn’t had time during the month to steep.

I do enjoy this one year round but the very syrupy sweet and dense orange notes coupled with the hints of raspberry/red fruit were especially delicious because it reminded me more specifically of all the Christmas Oranges that I’ve been snacking on throughout the winter. I finished off this brew quite quickly.

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.

What are Christmas oranges?

Like the little clementines that come in the cardboard box this time of year?
