So DT’s first Summer drop was about a week ago – there were lots of returning teas, but this was the only one that was brand new! Not gonna lie, like every year, this feels early. I mean, so many provinces are still getting snow fairly regularly… But oh well!

It’s a fruit infusion, similar in style to other popular DT fruity herbals like Caribbean Crush and Maui Madness. Like, both, it also has a really colourful liquor when steeped. In this case, it’s a very deep indigo/blue. What weird is that, during development and testing, the colour was so incredibly different depending on the kind of light the tea was in. In the fluorescent of our lab it was much more dark with a kind of purple-y lean to it and natural lighting it was more of a true blue. Very weird but kind of fun, though! Of course, the longer you steep the tea and the more leaf you use the darker that colour will be – so if you want a more blue blue don’t leave this one brewing for ages or dilute it partially afterwards…

In terms of taste, the main two flavours are lychee and peach. Very, very bright and juicy with just a bit of a more tart/sour top note before all those ripe, lush flavours really hit your palate. I find the lychee to be a little more strong, but I’ve also heard coworkers in the office say the opposite – so I think it may depend a bit on personal taste preferences or, possibly, just how familiar you are with the taste of lychee. Like is common in a lot of lychee flavoured things, there’s a bit of a floral undertone that’s just naturally present but I definitely wouldn’t call this a floral tea. It’s more of a sweet, fresh and fruity blend with a slight tropical lean. A hint of pineapple too – but just a hint.

It’s also fine hot, but definitely I would say that this was developed with the expectation that most people are going to drink it chilled in some way – be that iced, cold brewed, or in mixed drinks. Personally, I love a good lychee tea so I’ve definitely had my fair share of iced cups of this tea in the last few months as I’ve waited for it to launch.

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.
