When I first saw this tea on the DavidsTea website, it didn’t interest me and actually creeped me out a little bit. It just seemed strange with all of the… popcorn… tea… flavoring… kind of like a crazy carnival in a cup.

I received a nice sample from jessiwrites (thank you so much!) and the scent was calling to me from the bag. I sniffed sweet, salty, buttery… a bit like yogurt-covered pretzels (a huge love of mine — the perfect combination of sweet, creamy, salty). Once steeped, I became a little hesitant to sip because it smells like buttered popcorn jelly beans and I strongly dislike buttered popcorn jelly beans. Actual buttered popcorn is perfectly fine with me & is often my companion at the movies. Bringing my nose to the cup again.. I get caramel corn. Not so bad! Let’s give this a try.

Sipping… the sweetness is the first thing that I taste. It’s followed by a rather savory, almost salty note. Yep, it’s very much like caramel corn.. but in tea-form. There is also a bit of apple — I’m thinking Granny Smith as it’s rather tart. The apple balances out the sweetness pretty well and keeps things interesting. The more I sip, the more everything comes together. Caramel, tart apple, salted popcorn. The tea does finish on an artificial note, sadly.

I’m happy that I was able to try this tea. It’s definitely an original and interesting treat for the taste buds.
