Today I tried Dave&Solomon Energy Blend tea. I had been running around and needed a pick me up. When I first opened the package, it smelled earthy, a little floral-y, and very welcoming.
I believe this will be great as an iced tea. It has an earthy taste, it reminds me a little of chamomile, but different. The best way I can describe it is if chamomile and Rooibos had a little tea baby. The taste is nice and light, no sweetener needed.
The best part about this tea is how I feel. I wouldn’t say I feel energized as much as I feel calm and alert. And tranquil, but not sleepy. I will be making more of this, and trying it over ice for sure. It feels perfect for these last warm days of summer.
Here’s the scoop!

Chamomile is one of those ingredients that people either love or hate. I am in the pool of tea drinkers that love it. I drink it all hours of the day, not just night time. Chamomile blends iced are delicious and I love drinking it after a larger lunch, like today. I ate just a bit too much so I reached for this tea, hoping it might help.
I brewed this up with boiling water and steeped it for 5 minutes. Then I allowed this to cool off so I could add ice for an iced tea treat.
How did it taste? This was quite good. This definitely isn’t an ordinary chamomile tea blend. I love the additions of the lemongrass and the coconut. The flavors give this blend a unique flavor. What I really take away from this tea is the creamy silk like texture that I’m getting. Very good. I don’t really pick up the stevia and the chicory gives the tea a hint of a roasted profile. The licorice adds in a hint of sweeetness. This is a keeper!
