132 Tasting Notes
i had a sample of this one a while ago, i thought i reviewed it but i guess not!
i just got another 100g in the mail today, does that say enough?
this is probably one of the most amazing teas i’ve had from David’s since Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble!
tastes JUST like a banana chocolate pie, so delicious.
i feel like i’ve already had something from David’s that’s very similar to this tea…
regardless, it’s a very nice blend. the big chunks of chocolate leave a nice warm aftertaste, and the coconut makes it really smooth. the black tea is a nice base and not strong at all.
another tea to brew in a bag and not a metal strainer, as the coconut oils and chocolate bits gummed up my favourite one (my fault!)
a really tasty treat :)
i was hoping for a nice big, bold BANG of ginger from this one, but it really fell flat.
not much flavour at all, really. just very light and unassuming. like it didn’t care at all.
hahah, i will try blending in a little Ginseng & Ginger from Silk Road, that might up the flavour a bit to more of what i was hoping for. we’ll see!
yummm! this tea is lovely AND beautiful!
i definitely got it just because of the precious chocolate stars (i love anything star shaped), but the fact that it was a nice green tea AND had cinnamon, well, i just couldn’t go wrong.
the cinnamon really does come through nicely with the light green tea. the chocolate is very subtle in the background, but very nice.
i would recommend steeping it in a fine tea bag though, like the DAVIDsTEA drawstring ones, because you do get a bit of a hazy film otherwise, with the chocolate and all, if that bothers you. if not then go crazy with a nice loose steep!
i haven’t tried this as a latte yet, but i am dying to!
this is excellent as an iced tea with (a ton of) sugar, but i would 100% NOT recommend it hot to anyone who has the same battle with hibiscus as i do.
it is so tart and blech tasting when hot, i don’t even want to think about it again to describe it.
a definite NO for me.
iced though (a cold steep), in the summer, it is quite nice.
this is the best best best white tea i’ve had!
definitely beats out davids strawberry rhubarb parfait – more warm spice and barely-there tart hibiscus.
the cinnamon is so lovely and comforting, but you still have that nice light frutiness from the strawberry, and a bit of zing from the hibiscus (basically acting as the rhubarb).
wonderful! definitely one to stock up on, a bit on the expensive side with the white tea and everything, but so so worth it.
thank goodness it’s a permanent online exclusive! <3
