Going into this, I already knew I wasn’t going to be a fan because of the stevia, and seeing the white chocolate curls conjured up images of oil slicks on my tea. Now, I love white chocolate actually, but it’s been an annoying flavour to capture in a tea. That cocoa butter in hot water is a little dicey.
The cocoa notes aren’t as strong in here as I would have liked. This reminds me of a seasonal tea from the past. White Chocolate Frost? I appreciate the peppermint notes in here, and the vague attempt at pairing it with white chocolate, but it’s that damn stevia that is ruining the experience. I really, truly, want to poll the shit about of DAVIDsTEA customers, and find out, quantitatively, just how many people actually enjoy the stuff, because I find it hard to believe that enough of their demographic like it enough to justify putting it in so many blends.
No more stevia tears for the day, I promise.
