Tea Tuesday: DAVIDsTEA’s Summer 2014 Collection
Before I get started with today’s post I wanted to thank you all for the sweet comments on yesterday’s post! Thank you so much! <3
I’ve tried them all, love them all, but definitely have my favourites! So, here are my personal opinions and reviews of the five teas released for this summer!
Just Peachy was the first time of the five I tried. Since I wasn’t the biggest fan of their last peach tea, Peaches and Cream, I didn’t know how I was going to like this one, but I loved it! It’s an herbal tea bursting with flavours of fresh peach! I love juicy summer peaches and this tea is fabulous, especially when iced!
Sangria was the second tea of the five I chose to try. I chose to try this tea because I liked the ingredients and it smelled very promising. Sangria contains flavours from oranges, strawberries, raspberries, hibiscus, blackberry leaves, and liquorice root! All of the flavours pair so nicely together and create my personal favourite tea of the five released this summer! I will admit, I am addicted to the Sangria tea! I make at least one trip to DAVIDsTEA each and every day just for this tea. I also prefer this tea most when iced!
Shooting Starfruit is probably my third favourite of the five summer teas! After smelling it I didn’t know if I’d like it or not, it kind of smells like Christmas trees, but don’t let that turn you off because it tastes like apples! This tea contains apples, mango, starfruit, and jackfruit, and is a nice blend of all of those tropical, summer-y fruits, but apple is the flavour I noticed most; however, you can pick out notes of the other fruits within this tea, as well, so it’s different from any other apple-y tea I’ve ever tried before! Extremely refreshing!
Watermelon Mint is a really interesting tea! If you love mint teas, I believe that this could be your favourite tea of this summer! When enjoyed as a hot tea, it is quite watermelon-y, but has a nice fresh minty finish for all of the mint lovers out there! However, when enjoyed iced, it’s hard to detect any mint at all! When iced, this tea has refreshing flavours of watermelon and honeydew! I really enjoy this tea iced! I was told this tea is a staff favourite at the London location!
Mango Fruit Punch is just as delicious as it sounds! It’s bursting with sweetness from mango, but also tastes fruit punch-y from the other fruits within the blend such as orange, tangerine, and strawberries! This makes a perfect iced tea and I guarantee that even non tea lovers would love this tea!
As you can see, each of the five teas released for the summer of 2014 are unique and extremely delicious; however, if I had to pick a favourite I’d say Sangria is my favourite of them all!
