Day 22 Davids Tea Advent Calendar 2023

This one I used the entire tin. There was quite a bit of candied fruit in the blend which is surprising when you don’t read the ingredient list. It steeped up with a nice scent of ginger to it. It’s sweet with a bit of spice and a rooibos base. I do detect a bit of floral in the background as well. While I don’t generally favor sweet teas, this was nice.

So, as I just wrote about, I had a cup of Honeycomb Chai earlier this week and it made me realize that I didn’t think I ever wrote a tasting note for this tea… Sure enough, nope!

Tinsel Toddy was a tea that was included in this past year’s 24 Days of Tea advent and, like Peanut Butter Brownie, it was fully advent exclusive. The reason that Honeycomb Chai made me think of this blend is because they have some overlapping tasting notes. The key difference is that this is one a rooibos base and it’s also a lot less sweet (IMO) than Honeycomb Chai, though it does have some sweetness because it shares an incredibly similar note of honey. No licorice root, though. Bless.

Because it’s inspired by a Hot Toddy, the other flavours (aside from honey) are lemon and ginger to give that lovely trio of flavours that often forms the base of a hot toddy. You just need to add in the splash of whisky and you’re all set! I find the ginger packs more heat in this blend, and that combo of hot ginger and honey is very soothing to me. I love a good spiced honey and that’s what this reminds me of.

Is it a favourite blend of mine? No. If it was I probably would have remembered to write a tasting note for it. Or, at least, I would hope so. But I think it’s kind of fun and I love the idea of warming up in the winter with a nice toddy. It gives me very ‘cozy cabin’ vibes!

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
