I love this tea. I realize it’s a little silly to roll black tea, as there really isn’t a benefit to it… but it makes the tea pretty. This tea has a beautiful malty flavor and pairs nicely with milk.

This… is Forever Nuts from David’s Tea. No, actually. Same ingredients, same exact flavor.
So obviously this tea is DELICIOUS, but I’m wondering how they got away with this… lol! Coincidence?
Anyway, like Forever Nuts, steep this tea twice as long as recommended. It’s yummy!
I don’t know how to feel any more! You know how Teavana ia buying out Teaopia? They tested this tea to see if they wanted to keep it and found out that it IS flavored! Despite the fact that staff had been told it was just picked at a certain time of year to be this creamy. That is true for high quality milk oolongs… but not this one. On top of that, it contains dairy!
I still love this tea and don’t care about milk flavoring… but why the lies? :(
Mann… I did not think I’d like this, in fact.. I had no intention of looking at this tea at all after looking at the ingredients.
I’m not a huge fan of white tea, I don’t like berries in my tea… and I HATE licorice.
The staff member at David’s took it off the wall and asked me to smell it before I could even protest and… Ok, hey.. that smells pretty good.. Uh, I guess I’ll get a few grams to try it..
Oh my god. Definitely a new favorite. It’s nutty, creamy and slightly fruity. It’s also thick, and not watery and weak like white tea normally is. (IMO…) I think the cocoa adds the thickness. I don’t taste the licorice, thankfully. Just a nice, nutty white tea. :)

OMG! I have finally found a Pu-Erh that doesn’t taste completely of fish food!
The cinnamon is indeed over-powering as previous tasters have mentioned.. But I ADORE cinnamon. I can literally inhale the stuff all day. (And you’ll feel like it. The tea is literally gritty from cinnamon.) I can see why most people don’t like it, but so far I’m loving it!
Now I can enjoy the health benefits of Pu-Erh and not actually taste it! victory dance

Not quite as nutty as I was hoping..
BUT IT’S DELICIOUS~ Believe the hype.
I can’t even describe the flavor. It’s amazing. Steeped, it smells like Apple Jacks cereal. A little nutty, but more beetroot and cinnamon. Not even too heavy on the apple. It tastes like the crumble on an apple crumble pie.
My only issue is that I’ve never really understood the point of herbal teas unless they have major health benefits.. and this one really doesn’t. I think I’m going to use this as a mixer with a plain tea. :)
Oh this tea is amazing! A very mild green tea (I over-steeped mine and it didn’t even get slightly bitter!) with an amazingly sweet walnut undertone. It’s smooth and light.
Yummy! A little too sweet for me to drink all the time, but it makes a nice treat.
I definitely taste the honeybush before the maple, but that’s fine.
Honeybush is good for menstrual regulation and headaches, and now I’ve finally found a honeybush tea that I like! :)
I’ve actually changed my mind about this one after having another cup.
I don’t know, I think the aroma influenced me more than I realized. The taste is very much just a plain oolong, the flavour of the banana is completely lost.
Maybe it’s just not for me….
I imagine this is what it would taste like to attempt to steep potpourri.
Peppermint with cinnamon, flowers and OATS?
Definitely not for me…
Agree with Heather, this one smells amazing dry but is only mediocre when brewed. You definitely get more notes of graham cracker than either the marshmallow or chocolate.
It makes a pretty yummy latte though! If you’re getting it as a latte in store, ask for it “half-sweet” because waayyyy too much chocolate syrup is added!
Not the best rooibos tea I’ve ever had, and not the best chai tea I’ve ever had either.
It’s pretty good, and I am enjoying what I purchased, but I don’t think I’d buy it again.
I guess I wish I tasted the chai more.
This tea is really good. The flavour isn’t overpowering, but is definitely there. Perfect with milk, unsweetened. Probably one of the best flavored black teas I’ve ever had.
Oh my god. I love pumpkin. And chai. This tea is beyond fantastic.
I’m normally not a big fan of candies/sugar already being added to a loose-leaf tea, because that removes my ability to drink it un-sweetened. However, the pumpkin candies in this tea aren’t over-powering and just add a small hint of sweetness.
Hands down this is my favourite chai tea EVVVVVER!!
I reallllly want to emphasize that this is a very acquired taste, and I really recommend trying before buying.
To me it tastes like bacon. And after trying it once, even smelling it makes me nauseous.

If you like the taste of cola, but aren’t so big on how sweet cola is, then this tea is perfect!
I add just one spoon of sugar and then drink it iced. This is my mid-day pick-me-up.
Not… so good. Doesn’t taste like pumpkin at all, just a poorly executed spiced black tea.
I strongly recommend David’s Tea’s “Pumpkin Chai” over this.
This tea really gives you a bang for your buck! It’s already cheap, and 50 grams fills a whole bag because it’s so light!
This is powerful stuff, and a bit too strong for me to enjoy on it’s own. However, make it into a latte with some vanilla syrup and it’s amazing. (This is the “candycane latte” that was on the Christmas menu at Teaopia, but they always have vanilla syrup so it can be made year round.)
A delicious alternative to a regular orange pekoe. This has become my “standard” black tea.
It has a sliiight spicy undertone, but isn’t as bold as most orange pekoes. I grew up adding milk to black tea, but this one’s delicious on it’s own.
This damn tea.
And there’s SOOOO many ways to enjoy it!!
1) Brewed on its own. A lovely rooibos with mild chocolate tones.
2) Amp it up with some sugar and milk. The sugar helps bring out the flavours.
3) Brew it in warm milk, DELICIOUS!!
4) Brew it in 4 oz of water. Pour it into a shaker with 4 oz. milk and ice to make an iced latte. Tastes like a mild milkshake.
5) Mix with steamed milk and a few pumps of chocolate to make the best latte you will ever experience in your life.
If you like vanilla then this is the tea for you. You taste the tea before the flavouring, which is the way tea should be.
I recommend this one over Bourbon Vanilla.
