DAVIDsTEA Fall Collection Review: Indian Summer

by Meg on October 7, 2012

Good Sunday morning, loves! I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend and, for my Canadian friends, having a happy Thanksgiving, too! :)

I also hope you’re enjoying my tea reviews because I have another one for you today! :) Today I will be reviewing another tea from DAVIDsTEA’s fall collection, Indian Summer.

 
Indian Summer is a beautiful white tea and DAVIDsTEA describes it with the following statement: 
 
In Germany they call it “Golden October.” In China, it’s “a tiger in Autumn.” And in the southern states, it’s the “dog days” of summer. Whatever you call it, Indian Summer is one of the nicest times of the year. And that’s just what inspired this white tea blend. With Bai Mu Dan, apples, cherries, watermelon, lemongrass, hibiscus and everything in between, it’s lightly sweet, with a fruity kiss of melon. And equally delicious hot or iced. Just another reason the dog days are man’s best friend.
 
The ingredients in this tea are:
 
- Apple
- White Bai Mu Dan
- Lemongrass
- Hibiscus
- Blackberry leaves
- Acerola cherries
- Fig
- Pumpkin
- Watermelon
- Peony petals
- Artificial flavouring
 
There are so many unique ingredients in this tea, but I assure you they all blend together in a wonderful way! 
 
When you smell this tea, you can really smell the apple and cherries which causes it to it smell quite tart, but when brewed I do not find it tart at all. You can definitely taste the cherries, but the flavour of the blackberries and watermelon makes an appearance, as well. If you've ever tried DAVIDsTEA's Luscious Watermelon tea that was released this summer, you'll definitely be able to pick out the watermelon in this tea! I loved it! 
 
Even though this tea is fruitier than my usual favourites, I really enjoy sipping on it regularly. I think I like it so much because of the hints of pumpkin I’m left with at the end of each sip. So, if you’re a pumpkin lover, like myself, I think you’ll really like this tea. But, you’ll most likely enjoy this tea if you’re a fruity tea lover, too!
 
I’ve had this tea both hot and cold and it is actually delicious both ways! I thought I would prefer it cold, but I ended up really enjoying it hot, too!
 
Personally, I don’t think this tea needs any added sweeteners as the fruit adds enough sweetness, but I'm sure a little sweetener wouldn't hurt if you like things on the sweeter side!
 
This tea is perfect for sipping throughout the day, but you can also have it near bedtime as the caffeine content is low. 
 
I hope you enjoyed today’s tea review! I have one more review left until my review of DAVIDsTEA’s fall collection is complete! :) Tuesday I will be reviewing Banana Nut Bread (my personal favourite!)
 
Until then, you can catch up on my three previous reviews of the fall collection!

Of course I love your tea reviews!! I always have, except now I LOVELOVE them because I’ve been able to taste the deliciousness that is David’s Tea myself. I would have never set foot in David’s Tea in NYC had it not been for you! <3

I'm not a fruity tea person either, but I think I might like this one because it contains fig and pumpkin. :) I can't wait to read your review about Banana Nut Bread. It's my absolute favorite too! I'm almost finished with my tin because I've literally been drinking it every day–often twice a day! I'm addicted, sis.

Love you to pieces! xoxo <3
