drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA
145 tasting notes

I bought this tea because it smelled AMAZING dry. I was a little apprehensive about trying it though, because I really didn’t like Forever Nuts (I know I’m in the minority here— I think it’s the beetroot! But that’s a tale for another time).
So I brewed it up, and I wasn’t immediately impressed— there’s not much aroma to the tea, I was expecting a lot more. But then I tasted it, and it tastes just like the dry tea smells! There’s a nice cozy round nutty flavour in there, and the green tea doesn’t make it grassy or bitter at all. Personally I can’t seem to taste the pineapple at all, but I have no problem eating the pieces of it straight from the bag!
For me this is not so much a “put in a travel thermos and take to the library to study” kind of tea, more of a “put in a big mug and sit inside by the window on a cold day wearing a sweater” kind of tea.

I completely agree about the window+sweater with this one, I might go make some now… Glad to know that I’m not the only one who picks fruit/nuts out of the bag to eat :-)

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
