drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA
470 tasting notes

Finally getting around to this sample from Kittenna! I know, I am a slow tea drinker. ;~; I have SO many samples that even with 3-5 cups a day I’m mightily behind. Yet I keep swapping! It’s an addiction, I tell you.

Given how similar the ingredients here are to Della Terra’s Walnut Brittle, I expected them to taste very similar. Somehow, they don’t! DT’s blend is like candy, and this is more toasty, nutty and down to earth. It’s not that sweet and I only get the smallest hint of fruitiness from the pineapple and coconut. It’s definitely toasted walnut that comes through the most!

I still have a sample of Walnut Brittle that I haven’t tried! I thought they’d be pretty similar too.

Oh my, I totally get the swimming in samples “problem”!

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
