Kenneth Ave Advent Calendar – Day 7
I opened my DIY advent and saw Pistachio Praline. Then I opened this advent and found this nut tea. Then my Dollar Tea Club package arrived for the month and the first tea I pulled out is Forever Nuts. I am not too happy about this tea profile popping up everywhere.
I loved the DAVIDsTEA version of Forever Nuts the first time I had it. The second time I had it, it was like a switch was flipped and even the smell was off putting. Speaking of which, I also received a Forever Nuts tea sample in my DAVIDsTEA order that arrived this weekend. Why is this tea everywhere?
This is nutty but also has hibiscus and cacao. I actually think this is the best take on it and it is because it is predominantly hibiscus and cacao. The nuttiness comes through in the middle of the sip but its not as overwhelming as Forever Nuts or Pistachio Praline was. Also, something about this profile is making me think of Caramel Corn from DAVIDsTEA, which again I loved at first but quickly fell out of love with. It’s just got a popcorn vibe to it in the middle with tart hibiscus at the front of the sip and an end note of chocolate. Not a tea I want again but better than the others.
