I normally go out of my way to avoid stevia (and David’s Tea’s apple) but there are too many ingredients I that I do love here, including: aniseed, fennel, allspice, coconut, clove(!!) … also the promise of buttery crepe cookie à la Roswell Strange’s description (the tea delivers and I’m happy). I’ve also come to realize I enjoy creative puerh blends (as lattes), and this fits the bill.
A part of me does wish this was a little spicier (current pofile: soft cinnamon, light ginger, mellow fennel, etc) but appreciate that doing so would lose that delicate fortune cookie concept – which this tea totally nails (for my spice cravings, maybe it’s time I pick up a proper masala chai).
Adding milk helps the stevia “play well”, which makes me more inclined to keep it around during the cooler months. Lately, I seem to crave those sweet dessert teas that David’s Tea is known for; maybe due to fall’s nostalgia effect? I also just enjoy looking at this tea. The blend is pure eye-candy. There are big pieces of cinnamon sticks, coconut rind, and assorted spice seeds & pods, all making for a cozy collective of yellow, orange, red, white, black, and brown hues (again, fall, but also fortune cookie).
