Another new Summer blend!
Of all the new Summer releases, this one probably falls somewhere right in the middle for me in terms of my own personal preference. I think to describe it succinctly I would say that it’s somewhere in the ballpark of if Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait and Guava Cadabra (too very thick, juicy and tart fruit blends) had a lovechild. It’s an intense, strong fruity flavour that’s really going to work for anyone who’s a fan of those teas or that style of blend. Think Frozen Raspberry, Hibiscus Splash, or maybe even Just Beet It type of vibes.
We say this thing in the lab all the time though, and it’s that tropical flavours tend to taste either “yellow” or taste “orange”. It’s one of those synesthesia kind of things that’s a bit hard to describe if you just don’t inherently get it. So, one thing I do find really refreshing and different about this tea is that even though it does have strawberry/berry flavour fairly prominently it’s also a tropical tea that doesn’t taste yellow or orange. So it’s nice that it can stick out in that small kind of way.
Personally, I find the hibiscus/tartness a bit much when this is steeped hot so I do recommend it more as an iced or cold brewed tea. But that’s just my own personal preference when it comes to steeping this tea.
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.
