I definitely don’t taste sweet potato, but I have to say that this is quite sweet and tasty. It’s mostly fruity, lightly spiced, and a little starchy. I like to add milk. I removed all the marshmallows (there were tons!). The black tea is mild, so this one ends up light, but enjoyable.

Hmm, so I have a pouch of this that I got with a frequent steeper reward. I don’t generally buy DT teas, but I do buy teaware so I always have rewards to use up.

I don’t understand why this has such a high rating. I used a very heaping perfect spoon of tea and it still came out somewhat weak. Happily, it’s not overly sweet from the rock sugar, which I was worried about. I do prefer actual sugar to stevia, but I’d rather have neither. Otherwise it just kind of tastes like a watery coffee cake sort of black tea? I don’t really taste the pecan or anything suggesting sweet potato. Mostly just cinnamon and sweet and a bit of butter/cake flavor.

Going into my rehoming box, as clearly I’m in the minority on this one. :P

IMO- this one really shines as a latte. I find it just okay straight, but making it as a latte takes it to a different level.

Cameron B.

That makes sense, sadly I almost never make lattes so I guess it’s not for me, he he. :P

I just got a pouch recently too (around the time you rated this). I drank a little straight and some with oatly. It didn’t really do it for me either way. Or at least it isn’t enjoyable enough to hold on to or continue drinking in the future.

I got a box of this on clearance and I wasn’t sure what to expect – very pleasantly surprised! I added a bit of almond milk and one packet of stevia and it tastes super good. I had my room mate smell it and he pointed out the caramel note! I was primarily tasting marshmallow, but now it’s difficult to miss. This might be a “caramelized” sweet potato flavor. Either way, it’s great!

I love this tea, but this morning’s sachet was very disappointing. It felt way too weak. It was one of those boxes with the prepaid sachets. I guess I just like my tea stronger than what they put in them? I decided to empty all my tea sachets into my bag with the other bit I have so it’s all together and now I can use however much I want.
Anyways, I love this tea and I will keep it in my cupboard if I can.

Big fan of this one! So much so that I really stocked up, especially when it went on clearance. I expect it’s because of the nuts (pecans), so I had better not hoard it all too long.

Anyhow, I just love the spicing in this tea. And the creaminess. I don’t know about sweet potato, but I do quite this to be quite a nice, desserty treat. It does contain sugar, but when it’s in the form of rock sugar it can be fairly easily picked out, which I might try one day just for curiousity.

I find that it doesn’t resteep super well, but that’s ok; I need to progress through my teas and resteeps slow me down (but it’s hard to toss a tea that still has flavour!)

A really pleasant tea to drink. I love the smell of the dry leaf more than drinking the actual tea. It’s colder weather out today so it’s perfect for false spring.

Love it! I got just 2 0z of this because it was on sale and I wanted to get free shipping. So this pushed me over the threshold. Purchased on a whim because I like sweet and cozy things. And this tastes perfectly sweet and cozy. And lately when I drink any black tea or coffee I feel uncomfortably jittery because I limit caffeine… I had no problem with this even drinking after 3pm. Maybe I am just getting back used to caffeine though. Had with milk.

I wanted to try this and finally had the opportunity to buy it while it was in stock with free shipping.  I had to order it, if I could get free shipping while not buying anything else.   The blend actually has butternut squash and sweet potato, so it already wins points.  However, I thought these were tiny apple cubes, but looking at the ingredients list, no apple.   Also, marshmallows.  Also, pecans!  When hot, the first sips definitely have noticeable squash/sweet potato notes.  But as it cools, the sweetness of the rock sugar takes over… which I recognize from another tea, probably also from Davids.  These rock sugar pieces take on a boozy characteristic, which I don’t really want to see here.  It REALLY takes over the mug. Maybe it will get better with age/time.  The base black tea looks unique – it looks very scarlet and longer leafed than a typical Davids tea.  I really wanted a thick squash, sweet potato, pecan, marshmallow mug but it’s just boozy. 
Steep #1  // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 21 minutes after boiling  // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2  // just boiled //  3 minute steep

Been super curious about this one. Have seen lots of high rated reviews for the blend and I almost ordered it a few times.

tea-sipper

Yeah, maybe it’s just me though…

Leafhopper

I laughed at your “ancient Santa’s Secret” sipdown. I have a half-full tin of ancient Snow Day from … five years ago? I really only drink it during the holidays.

Lexie Aleah

It’s funny you say that because my mom told me she wanted to try this blend too but by the time she told me that. The free shipping deal was over.

tea-sipper

Yep, have ancient Snow day too. And then fresh Snow Day that can be added to the tin when that is done. haha

I don’t know that I’ve ever had a sweet potato pie, which seems like a poor testament to all the years I’ve spent living in Texas. I’ve had candied sweet potato casserole on Thanksgiving and I’ve had a slew of pumpkin pies. I imagine that both are similar.

This arrived today along with a new travel tumbler and the Halloween skeleton gummy bear pouch. I wonder what awesome Halloween merch we missed out on because of Covid. That skeleton animal thing David’s gave us a glimpse of was a really cool idea.

I noticed this tea was pretty additive heavy. Large chunks of rock sugar and potato pieces mixed in with comparatively little tea, so I scooped a little more than normal for a cup. There was such a strong sweet cinnamon scent when steeping this. Tiny roommate commented on how good the kitchen smelled. When I sip this I get a rich and creamy spiced sweet potato flavor. If I sip too frequently the flavors go away, but if I pace myself each sip is delightful. I do wish I could control the amount of sugar I’m drinking since I try to keep it limited, but I guess I can make an acceptation for a more novelty type tea.

I found sweet potato pie to be incredibly similar to pumpkin.

Dustin

Now I want to have a taste test for science…. totally not just because I want to eat pumpkin and pumpkin like pies.

Mastress Alita

I put cubes of frozen sweet potato in my pumpkin smoothies!

Note to anyone: Davids still has free shipping on any order and Sweet Potato Pie is available again.

Martin Bednář

They don’t ship here. sob

tea-sipper

aw, sorry Martin. :/

Dustin

I need to find more things to do with sweet potatoes after buying a 30lbs box. Smoothies might be just the thing. Are they precooked or raw?
I saw that free shipping thing. And I need to look away. LOL!
