I have 100% had this tea before, and it is delicious. However apparently I’ve never actually logged it in Steepster? So, I’m basically just drinking a small teacup of it right now so that I can refresh my memory on the tasting notes present and get some documentation of it up to continue my streak/stretch of trying and writing about every tea currently sold by DT in store or online or that has been since I started working there…
The body on this tea is just lovely; so smooth and creamy. Flavour is rich and sweet; a mix of creamed honey/malt, cocoa, raisins, and freshly baked bread. Maybe a tiny touch of cinnamon? It’s hard to picture how anyone could dislike this type of profile – and I wish that DT had brought this back instores in addition to having it online. It just wasn’t feasible though, in terms of how much they would have needed to source to supply every store with it. Same reason it was discontinued all those years ago when it was core; supply was too small for the demand.
Which is tragic.
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 regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
