From DAVIDsTEA

Cool ‘stachio! There’s nothing quite like a bowl of ice cream. Even Roman emperor Nero couldn’t resist its frosty deliciousness. Legend has it he used to send runners into the mountains for snow, which was then flavoured with fruits and nuts. Though he had the right idea, it seems he was missing a key ingredient – pistachios. Sweet and salty, pistachio ice cream is just one of those desserts that keep us coming back for more. And with this nutty blend of black tea and crunchy pistachios, you’ll definitely want two scoops.

Ingredients
Apple pieces, black tea, sliced almonds, pistachios, sweet blackberry leaves, natural and artificial pistachio cream flavouring.

Fairly backlogged – drank this over “Christmas” and forgot to write about it. But I don’t have a ton to say; I had this brewed up for me at a store, and it tasted much fruitier than I expected. Fruity and nutty, nothing special. I did have some milk in there, which tends to cloud flavours, so I’ll have to try it again straight. I probably have some around here, somewhere…

I absolutely love this one! I don’t know how David’s Tea gets the flavor of ice cream right into the mix! I taste the strong pistachio and the creamy ice cream… I thought I would need milk in this one to get the creaminess but it’s fine just steeping it black!

Good cream flavour with a heavy mouthfeel. Pistachio note comes through nicely and mixes well with other flavours. Can’t really pick out any black tea notes.

Judging by the other reviews, I wasn’t expecting much from this tea…but it’s oddly delicious, especially given that I don’t like Pistachios. :/

This cup is creamy – which intensifies as it cools – sweet without any added sugar and has a rich, rounded mouthfeel that is intensely satisfying. There’s a nuttiness, but it doesn’t overwhelm and I’m not picking up on any astringency at all.

This is….a very good tea. I wasn’t ready for how much I like it, but this could easily become a staple in my winter rotation. The only caveat I can place is that a 10oz cup is definitely enough – I’m not feeling any real push to re-steep.

I love love love pistachio, so I thought I would love this tea. I was expecting more flavor, I found I had to steep it for at least 6 mins to get some flavor. I was also surprised by the savory note in it. With cream and some sweetener it is much better. Awesome as a latte.

I think that Forever Nuts and Toasted Walnut are both better than Pistachio Ice Cream in the DavidsTea lineup. I don’t taste black tea with this at all, and the apples, blackberry leaves and an artificial sugar taste just don’t agree with me here. It smells heavenly, especially dry, but there’s a sour apple and artificial, chemical sugar taste that I don’t like after it has been prepared. I was told in the store to steep this for 10 full minutes, which I thought made the apple taste even stronger, but I’ve tried everything from 4 to 10 minutes with lacklustre results. It’s like a less sweet Forever Nuts with no cinnamon and a sour undercurrent. I’m not into it.

I didn’t try this last year when it came out because I didn’t like the smell. But someone recently sent me a sachet and so I might as well give it a try. I’m just curious as to why everyone is so crazy about it. And.. It’s not bad. Definitely nutty. But also has a creamy note to it. It’s not a bad tea, and I don’t mind it, but I wouldn’t buy it.

I wasn’t impressed with this tea straight. Enjoying it more after adding some cream. It does have a nutty flavor to it, but I don’t know that I would pin it as pistachio if I drank it without knowing the name. It’s okay, but not a restock for me.

It has a pleasant smell to it both after opening the bag and while steeping as well. This tea lives up to its name in both smell and taste. It is so delicious!

This creamy, nutty tea hits the spot, especially after the crazy weekend* I’ve had. I need to rest a little with some tea.

*Pokemon Go. I think I spent at least 5 hours on my feet yesterday, between my morning run, finding all the spots on campus, and an evening venture into a park to figure out how a “gym” worked.

This is basically my grail of teas. It’s throaty and rich, with sweetness. It’s like a hand-knitted afghan around you after shoveling the snow. Ahhhh.

Sadly, it’s discontinued, because life isn’t fair. If you live in Canada, you can buy the Spring Collection, which it’s part of, but if you click on the American version of the site, it disappears. I kind of feel like a jerk even discussing it. I’m so close to a sipdown. I can feel my heart splitting along its seams.

Unfortunately that is why I have been buying very little from DAVIDs lately: so much of their stuff is temporary and I don’t want to fall in love with something for it just to be discontinued 2-4 months later.

I just bought some today.
