After last summer’s scarring experience with Sangria, I expected wine-flavoured teas to be completely off the table for me this year but unsurprisingly, I still ended up taking some of this home with me last time I visited DAVIDsTEA. The smell of this one was initially very off-putting – it smells very, very alcoholic. However, when brewed, most of the alcohol notes I smelled are no longer present, and I taste mostly raisins and red fruit. It’s a pleasant iced tea, but definitely not something that’s my personal taste, I don’t find grape tea very appealing. Overall, this is a nice herbal blend for lovers of grape-flavoured tea, the hibiscus and alcohol notes are not predominant, and there’s an interesting sparkle to the flavour to give it a bit of complexity.
