My pet peeve about David’s Tea (other than the fact that they don’t use the apostrophe in “David’s”) is that they put coconut in WAAAAY too many blends. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with coconut per se, but it’s possible to over-do it, and it can be nauseating when it takes over the flavour completely. Also, for some reason, it doesn’t really fit too well with the dark, strong black teas that I love with milk.
That being said, I really like Brazillionaire, precisely because they use coconut but don’t let it overwhelm the blend. Instead, by having coconut keep a low profile, you get that full, nutty flavour that gives the tea a heavier body and the lovely feeling of being more like a meal than a drink after you add milk. Coconut naturally fits better with nuts than with other tea flavours, anyway – the nuts provide the strong foundation to let the coconut dance very lightly around it (unlike their Buttered Rum flavour, which I hate because the coconut is overwhelming!). The black tea is appropriately strong to keep up. I still think Lupicia’s Marron Chocolat is the best example of a black tea with nut flavour, but this is still high quality. Probably my favourite from David’s Tea so far. Will definitely finish the ounce I bought, and probably buy again.
