Yet another release from DAVIDsTEA. The Harvest Collection includes five teas plus a load of new mugs, bottles and other accessories. Plus the long awaited “new essential” that is a bit of a let down as not much different than the old Bodum tea press they had years back. Seemingly it is leak proof though so great for those on the go. There are two teas, Blueberry Muffin and Carrot Cupcake that are available as samples in sets so we may see them later this year. The teas released as the Harvest Collection are Honeycrisp Apple, Just Beet It, Orange Glow, Pear Blossom and Wild Strawberry.
DAVIDsTEA Honeycrisp Apple Tea – Harvest Collection
No surprise that the Harvest Collection is heavy on apple and given the theme, I won’t complain about their overuse of apple. Obviously Honeycrisp Apple has a fair amount with apple pieces, apple pomace and apple flavouring. Priced at $8.98 for 50g. Steeping time is 3-5 minutes.
Ingredients: Apple, sweet blackberry leaf, green tea, hibiscus, apple pomace (pomace, citric acid), pear (pear, rice flour), natural pear and apple flavouring.
DAVIDsTEA Just Beet It Tea – Harvest Collection
Just Beet It was the tea of the day today so the one I tried. I actually quite like it. Much sweeter than I thought it would be. It does’t have that tart taste of some mates either which is nice. Priced at $7.98 for 50g. Steeping time is 4-7 minutes.
Ingredients: Apple (apple, citric acid), raisins, hibiscus blossoms, beetroot, elderberries, carrot, green maté, goji berries, aronia berries, blackberries, red currants, guarana seeds, raspberries, cornflower blossoms, natural and artificial wildberry flavouring.
DAVIDsTEA Orange Glow – Harvest Collection
Look! No apple! Orange Glow is heavy on the carrot and very little orange so that juicy orange scent is coming from the flavouring. It is supposed to have the warm feeling of sun tea and is best served iced. Priced at $8.98 for 50g. Steeping time is 4-7 minutes.
Ingredients: Carrot, candied ginger (ginger, cane sugar), beetroot, pumpkin, hibiscus, orange peel, marigold blossoms, safflower petals, natural orange flavouring.
Daisy is a big fan of Orange Glow!
DAVIDsTEA Pear Blossom – Harvest Collection
They just could not go a whole collection without some stevia to go with all of that apple. Pear Blossom contains both! It has a slightly floral scent to it too but is heavy on the sweet ingredients. Priced at $7.98 for 50g. Steeping time is 4-7 minutes.
Ingredients: Pear, apple (apple, citric acid), candied papaya (papaya, sugar), candied pineapple (pineapple, sugar), rosehip peel, sunflower blossoms, stevia extract, natural pear and peach flavouring.
DAVIDsTEA Wild Strawberry – Harvest Collection
Last but not least, Wild Strawberry, a herbal infusion that has a slightly creamy taste to it. Quite a strange mix of ingredients on this one, but seems to work. Priced at $8.98 for 50g. Steeping time is 4-7 minutes.
Ingredients: Apple (apple, citric acid), elderberries, raisins, hibiscus blossoms, beetroot, rosemary, strawberries, vanilla pods, natural and artificial strawberry-cream and vanilla flavouring.
