Latest crazy idea from DT – Tea Espressos!

So, before we get into the reviews for this limited edition collection, I feel like I want to just say a couple things very explicitly: As a 100% non coffee drinker and someone who owns ZERO coffee making accessories I am very fortunate to have been able to make these teas at work where we have all the required equipment. I realize that this is definitely not a product that everyone will have the capability to make at home, and DT knows that too – this is a niche market. Secondly, I am also clearly not the demographic intended for this to land with – so take my opinions with a grain of salt…

So with that said, I tried this as a latte because that’s basically the only way that it’s intended to be consumed – and I made it with the Espresso Machine method, since that’s what we have at the office. I am a little be surprised that as a company DT didn’t come up with a method to brew up “Tea Espresso Shots” ‘cause, at least for me, I think people picture shots in their mind when you say ’espresso’. But I guess what you’re doing when you make these on an espresso machine is basically steeping an espresso shot and adding it to frothed milk to create a latte? I just know that it was HIGHLY recommended to me when trying these for the first time to NOT drink it as a shot, so…

Taste wise, I think this is fine. I don’t know why, in my head, I thought it was going to taste like anything but a London Fog but, well, it tastes like a London Fog. Durh. It’s actually a little bit light tasting to me; I expected a bit more “oomph” out of something with an espresso/coffee tie in – but all that said, it’s smooth and creamy and enjoyable.

Also for those curious, because I think I’ve seen a few comments on FB/instagram asking this – these are NOT tea flavoured coffee or coffee flavoured tea. Basically, just very intense and higher caffeine teas made for use in espresso machines as fast lattes.

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.
