drank Fireside Mocha by DAVIDsTEA
1471 tasting notes

My struggle to find the perfect non dairy creamer is real. With the addition of Trader Joe’s coconut almond creamer, my cup of Fireside Mocha was transformed into a cup of pizza crust tea. It was the weirdest thing, clearly tasting pizza crust. I’m not even that big of a fan of pizza. I’ll eat it if I’m starving and it’s there, but I never think “What do I want for dinner tonight… I know, pizza!”. I have no idea what about the combination would do this, but I was sipping it while watching the movie Satanic Panic, which was not a documentary on the 80’s fear phenomenon like I thought and logic leads me to suspect that this tea transformation might be the work of the devil. Who else would play such a rotten trick?! Definitely satan. Cue panic!

Lots of people like oat milk the best (USA people seem to like Oatly the best). I prefer vanilla soy in tea, but it isn’t for everyone. You can sometimes find “barista blend” (usually in shelf stable tetra packs, but sometimes sold fresh and refrigerated) and those ones are thicker and creamier. I like macadamia and oat creamer a lot but if you find the Silk vanilla one that is perfect in tea.

I second the Silk Vanilla or the So Delicious Vanilla Creamer. Oatly and Califia both make good Oat Milks too.

I tried the refrigerated Oatly and it was really bland. I don’t think I’ve tried the macadamia one, but the Silk vanilla soy was too sweet and slightly plasticy, while the Silk almond creamer was sickly sweet like the flavored creamer pods at convenience stores. So Delicious vanilla coconut creamer was very sweet, but the best out of the 9 creamer line up I had going. Califa Oak creamer had a bitter finish, their Better Half coconut/almond tasted like bland almonds and their vanilla almond milk creamer was super thick and plastic tasting. They all have something in them that I’m finding takes away or alters the taste of my tea instead of enhancing it. I have a friend who loves Chobani oat milk as a creamer and I see they make creamers, but so far I’ve only been able to find seasonal flavored creamers. I feel like some picky fairy tale non dairy creamer princess!

I enjoy pizza, but pizza-crust tea doesn’t sound appealing. I can’t help you with your creamer quest since I drink my tea plain, but good luck!

I love weird flavors, so I probably would have ordered pizza crust tea just out of curiosity, but that would be consensual pizza crust tea. This was not consensual! LOL!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
