drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
255 tasting notes

Forever nuts? Forever nursery school! As a night-time non-caffeinated tea, this succeeds. I am, however, wondering if I will ever again be able to love a tea that seems geared towards a two year old audience. The bright cheery cherry red color (from beetroot) does not transform the fact that the beverage tastes like very very weak hot apple cider.

I could not detect the nuts at all. I purchased this tea as an almond-lover, but the tea seems to be all apple with a dash of cinnamon. If there is a nut taste (and I’ve strained to detect one) it might be a touch of walnut.

The more I drink tea, the more I realize that I’m just not suited for those concoctions that really are not tea at all. If I must avoid caffeine, then these sweet little beverages will not make me happy. I’d rather drink water.

This tea does succeed as what it is—not an almond tea but a nice apple drink. It’s refreshingly free of rooibos.

I hope that my lowish rating does not prevent those who really would like this kind of drink from making a purchase at David’s Tea. When David gets with the caffeine, he does an exceptional job.

i’m so glad you tasted this. I wanted to order it but the shipping costs were too high so I found a tea that looked identical at TG, Roasted Almonds. It tasted like warm apple cider. You’ve just confirmed that they are probably the same tea. Thanks for saving me from making the same mistake 2×.

I agree w/u about the non-caffeinated beverages…although decaffeinated chais are OK as they are very flavorful…

Veri-Tea

Odd name for a tea…

Ricky

Forever nuts! Ahahaha, another great tea name!

The Vanilla Comoro from Harney & Sons and the Siam from SerendipiTea are the only two uncaffeinated teas I’ve tried that I would consider restocking…I feel your pain! Sometimes I just roll with a mellow-brew white tea instead.

I am new to the world of tea. I must confess I loove Forever Nuts-pink color and all. I have a cup of it in the evening and treat is as dessert. It tastes decadent. It does not taste like watered down apple cider to me. I recommend it as a nice tasty treat.

Kristen: Thanks for the comparison! It’s really helpful to discover duplicate teas—because it saves $$!

In case anyone (Stephanie) want’s to try the TG Roasted Almond, I just posted it in the Take it Away discussion thread.

I really love big, bold, brash teas. Smokiness enthralls me. I don’t seem to do subtle.
I don’t do rooibos.

My rating system:
0-30:
Never again in a hundred million years

31-55: This tea probably has some redeeming qualities but I won’t would not seek it out again.

56-70:
Shows some promise but also has a fundamental flaw. I probably owe these a second taste but am unmotivated.

71-80:
Good with at least one strong quality; I probably would not buy it but would drink it cheerfully.

81-90: Worthy contenders; they might be ranked 100 on somebody’s else’s scale. I like them a lot but have not fallen in love. Will probably buy and use.

91-95: These are the true loves, the chosen ones, the ones I dream about and crave. Unless they are in a limited edition—la! how you tease me!—I will always keep in my cupboard.

96-100: I cannot be separated from these teas and would develop a panic attack if I were to run out.
