Pour some sugar in your cup, can’t get enough! Brown sugar and caramel keeps this blend sweet & creamy while a vanilla bourbon spike kicks things up a notch. Sip this malty black tea from a mason jar and appreciate just how good you have it. C’mon, fire me up!

What makes it great

A warming fireside cocktail, without the booze. Unless you add some, we don’t judge. Warm up from the inside out by drinking this blend as is, with some milk, or with a spike.

The malty-ness of the black tea adds depth and warmth to this already cozy blend, hinting at the taste and feel of a glass of bourbon.

Makes a great latte! Caramelized brown sugar adds a sense of decadence to any cup, especially when frothed with milk or your fave alternative.

Day 19 Davids Tea Advent Calendar 2023

I’m drinking this for a lunch time Zoom call. I don’t taste bourbon which is not a bad thing for me. It’s definitely brown sugary, sweet, and creamy. I like the maltiness of the mug. Hazelnut is strong in my mug and that’s fine with me. A nice dessert tea.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Hazelnut, Sweet

TTB sample! I love it! I don’t taste anything that reminds me of bourbon, which is not a flavor I enjoy. I do however taste a lot of brown sugar. With milk, this is so tasty! I wish there had been more left in the packet! It’s so desserty and lovely.

I wish David’s Tea didn’t feel the need to add stevia to so many of their dessert blends! I like being able to control the level of sweetness myself and I do NOT care for the aftertaste of stevia. Aside from that, this one is really nice! The black/puerh base is robust without being bitter or to earthy and the flavor is a rich, buttery caramel.

I enjoy the sweet with a touch of bourbon. Wasn’t sure at first but after a couple tries I grew to love it.

very good, less bourbon flavor than adaigo but bc of that it’s more drinkable and brown sugarey. I still get a hint of it with mostly apple and brown sugar and nutty notes. WRP with sale.

Third new tea. I’m not sure quite how I feel about this one. Pretty sure it was ok, but no particular defining flavour, just kind of a generic dessert black tea? There’s stevia, and chicory, both not favourites, but also hazelnut, caramel, brown sugar, which I adore. I’ll have to give it another try, but also unlikely to be a repurchase.


We almost never drink, but for some bizarre reason this past weekend I had a craving for bourbon :P and we found the most amazing chocolate bourbon!


I actually have never had bourbon! Not a fan of alcohol. I didn’t find this tea to be particularly alcoholic-flavoured, unlike some. Chocolate bourbon sounds interesting.

Another new autumnal tea that soft launched this week!

I think the concept behind this tea is really fun and I’m typically a fan of whenever we explore indulgent/sweet tea profiles that don’t have chocolate or coconut in them. Not that I don’t like chocolate/coconut teas, but I do think we lean on those flavours a lot and there are a ton of directions you can take “sweet”.

In this case, I find this blend has that sort of almost generic brown flavour. I know that may not sound appealing, but trust that I mean it in the nicest way. It’s sort of hard to describe but it’s this kind of caramelized sugar but a little bit “cake like” sweet taste that just seems to pop up in a lot of dessert blends – blends like Coffee Cake, Red Velvet Cake, and Tahitian Vanilla. It’s not from a flavouring and between all these blends there’s no ONE common ingredient, and yet…

So aside from that unique and interesting dense and sweet coating brown note, I find this tea has some pleasantly creamy and coating notes of vanilla and caramel and a bit of an almost fruity sort of note that rides the line between top note and undertone in a unique and not linear way. It’s that playful sort of vague fruitiness that reminds me most of bourbon in this tea – especially in combination with the dense sweetness and then the tea bases that were used. As someone who likes alcohol flavoured/inspired tea blends, I feel like the bourbon could have been stronger and more overt, but I’m not sure if that’s a sentiment that most people would agree with.

But lets talk about the tea bases for a second, because this is a blend of black tea and pu’erh. The really brilliant thing about the black tea that was used, in my opinion, is that it’s a particularly malty tasting black tea and I think that just works on such a good level with something bourbon inspired. Cutting it with pu’erh definitely adds a lot more body and density to the cup but by not using all pu’erh it doesn’t get too earthy either.

If sweet and decadent “brown” tasting teas seem up your alley, then I think this will be a winner for you! It’s also just super nice as a latte as well – so I recommend giving that a try if you end up picking up this tea.

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.
