I decided I wanted to sipdown some of my DAVIDsTEA stash (herbals in particular) and this was a good candidate for a sipdown focus because I don’t have a lot of it and I know it tastes really good cold brewed – so that should make for a fast turn around on finishing it off.
I feel like I must have had a more stressful day than I realized or maybe I was just holding in some emotions subconsciously, but this tea was so good tonight that it kind of made me want to cry – I just got so unexpectedly emotional drinking it and I could NOT figure out what the specific trigger for that was.
The taste was mostly peach, but a very honeyed peach with a dewy freshness about it and all the floral undertones from the persimmon that I’ve experienced with this blend in the past. It felt really well rounded because of that balance of sweet honey, dewy and fresh and slightly tart peach, floral persimmon, and light lemongrass – all very complimentary, and working to create a sort of “simple complexity”. I finished it way too fast and then, I’ll echo is again because I’m still shocked that this was my body’s response, when it was done I wanted to cry. I missed the tea.
…maybe trying to finish this off was actually a bad idea? I don’t know.
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.
