DAVIDsTEA’s Sunny C | Tea Review

by Tea in Spoons


I am feeling a bit under the weather, so I thought I would try a blend that had some vitamin C in it!

Description: “With hints of hydrating hibiscus and tart lemon, it’s a citrusy tonic that’ll leave you feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed after one sip.”

Instructions: 1-2 Perfect Spoons | 160oz water | 95C°/200F° | 5+ min     

Review: As expected from a blend named ‘Sunny C,’ the most predominant smell from the dry and wet blend was the citrus from the orange and lemon peels. The liquor was a clear rose gold colour with hibiscus, orange, and lemon smell after 5 mins of steeping.


The liquor was rather tart from the hibiscus and left the mouth feeling dry. It was followed by some sweetness and citrus. Overall, the blend made my mouth slightly pucker. I tried this both with 1 and 2 Perfect Spoons. If someone wants a stronger citrus flavour, two might be better, but I found the blend was already tart with one.

I understand why it is called ‘Sunny C!’ It reminds me exactly of Sunny D (Sunny Delight) which is a tangy orange flavoured drink. I think this blend would also be good iced since it would cut down on the tartness (2.5/5 rating).

I’ve heard good things and bad things about this blend but all in all it sounds like it would me a delicious iced tea during the summer

I did not try it iced, but I could see it being good as well!

This is such a well written tea review. Clear and concise! However, I don’t think I would like this tea as I always hated Sunny D…yuck! lol

You are too kind! I drank some a few years back, it is much sweeter than I remembered!
