Can’t remember if I have reviewed this yet… oh well, I will now!

I bought 50g of this via the website in an order earlier this fall, then proceeded to forget about it in my excitement to try the fall collection. It waited, patiently, for me to give it my attention… and today I finally brewed up a cup and focused on the flavour. But I gotta say, I was disappointed! With all the hype this tea gets, I thought I would have fallen in love immediately.

Not to be swayed I brewed this again, but this time I made it following last years December DAVIDsTEA newsletter recipe for spiced butter—cream together 1/2 cup butter, 2 cups brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg, and a pinch each of ground cloves and salt, then store in the fridge to use ANYTIME—and made it like a latte.

Now. There. Is. No. Turning. back. I’m addicted. I can’t stand this tea straight-up, but with the addition of milk & spiced butter it’s a whole other tea…

Oh man, it’s a love-hate relationship when your nice healthy tea becomes just as decadent as any dessert! That sounds amazing!

Totally! I mean, how healthy IS that butter—not at all—but it tastes so epically good! Plus, moderation is key… right? Right?

Kay Kanada

Moderation and tea simply do not go together!!

Butter and tea? Really? Can you taste the tea at all?

Faith

You definitely can, I think it just brings out more of the “butteriness” in the tea… or it does for me, anyways.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
