From DAVIDsTEA

Add a squeeze of lemon to this juicy blue raspberry infusion and watch it go from indigo to violet – no pixie dust required. The secret ingredient? Butterfly pea flower, a unique plant from Southeast Asia with naturally bright azure petals. Try it as a refreshing caffeine-free iced tea or a berry-packed nightcap. With its colour-changing powers, it’s like a mood ring in your mug.

What makes it great

The new Halloween collection is out and I have to admit that this is one of the most fun Halloween collections that I think we’ve had (in terms of teaware) in quite some time – I’m really in love with the collection!!

As far as teas go, the focus this year was more largely on bringing back fan favourite teas and the only “new” tea is this one – which is a revamp/update of the previous Magic Potion. Obviously they share a name so there’s a bunch of similarities to the previous blend but, similar to the “Oh Canada” update from a couple years back, this isn’t really intended to be a match for that blend – there are absolutely differences.

The first one in the steeped colour: rather than a “blue” when steeped this is a little more naturally purple already. Depending on how many of the butterfly pea flowers you get in the cup, it can range from a lighter purple to a deeper dark indigo colour. A little less bright, IMO, and more “mysterious” and witchy feeling. The tea will definitely still colour change with lemon though – so you can still produce a more magenta-y purple looking cup for sure.

The taste is still berry inspired but we wanted to get more direction and clarity to the berry flavour. Where the “OG” Magic Potion was sort of just a sweet but non descript berry, this is a little more tart with some cranberry notes that stand out alongside the wild berry leaning base berry flavour. A hint of coconut adds creaminess and body, without actually tasting distinctly like coconut.

Personally, I always went back and forth on if I liked the OG Magic Potion – certainly it was better iced/cold brewed to me but often I just found it a little much. I’m still not as big of a fan of this tea as I am with many of the other berry leaning DT herbal blends, but I do prefer it to the original Magic Potion. I’m curious to know what other people think about it because I know that any time there is any blend change that can be hard to get used it – but I hope this is one for the better.

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.

First off I want like 342424829403289 of everything in this Halloween collection, definitely my favourite in a long time as far as teaware/accessories.

Thank you so much for posting this Kelly! I always skip by Magic Potion when promoted because I’ve been buying DT for 5+ years now so I’m familiar with the old one, and never would have looked twice to know this was a reblend. I see the new one has stevia (one of my main tea aversions but not a complete deal breaker) but I’m absolutely going to pick up a bag or two in my next DT order.

Actually, both the new and old versions have stevia – this one actually has less overall though.

Tiffany :)

Yeah, that’s what I meant.. I was familiar with the old one and I’m not a big fan of stevia in general but without this tasting note I would have never known this was a reblend, and despite the reblend ALSO having stevia I will still be grabbing a bag or two of this to try it out (also I love cranberry anything :)).
