It was a green tea heavy day for me at work today…
That’s probably for the best given there’s so many I need to try/check off the list. This is another one that, like Witch’s Brew, is on its way out of stores once stock runs out. I had it hot and found it surprisingly pleasant; based on the ingredients list I was skeptical of whether or not I’d like it. I did keep my steep time light handed though, which probably helped.
Strongest flavours in the cup were the raspberry, fig, and rosehip with just teeny tiny whisps of the currant, and ginko. The actual green tea base was very light as well; mostly masked by the fruit notes. Overall it was just smooth, mellow and fruity which made it really easy to sip on inbetween helping customers. I’m just a little sad now that is is a retired blend but as a coworker put it today “It’s just sort of forgettable overall, even though it’s not bad at all” and I think she was right. This was nice to drink, but nothing about it stands out so I guess I see why it’s not sticking around long term.
Friendly reminder that I’m not currently numerically rating DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently seasonally 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 regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
