I finally got around to make a cup of this.
I will say I was not disappointed with the description vs taste comparison. It has a nutty vegetal flavor just as promised, however I really don’t think I like the nutty/vegetal combination as a matter of personal preference.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

This tea, I’m so glad I got 100g because I’m in love. It had that warm buttery flavor I was really wishing it would have (since it was advertised as so) and it also had a flowery hint in it. I described it as a melted butter covered flower, which is surprisingly better than it sounds.
On the 1st re-steep their was not really any butter flavor, it had a vegetal flowery taste and was still very good.
I’ll update later on what a 2nd re-steep does to it.

This tea is phenomenal! I am never a fan of straight blacks but this one I had to try when it said “creamy” I guess you get what you pay for because this has excellent quality. It’s sweet, nutty, and creamy. I’ll be purchasing a little bit more before it goes away :)

1st re-steep was okay, i definitely lost the creaminess. it now has a more astringent bitter black flavor. i would still repurchase though because the first steep is good

drank Peaches & Cream by DAVIDsTEA

I love this tea and have been stubbornly hanging on to about two cups worth of this since it came out last spring in hopes that I will be able to refill my tin. I love the creamy peachy candy flavor of it. I know people didn’t like that about it but whatever, I really think the sweet and creamy ones are awesome. I don’t always like berry teas when I want something fruity. This was my first love at DavidsTea.

I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I’ve tried other detox teas and they were not drinkable they were so gross. This one had a distinct taste though I can’t put my finger on what it is. This was quite delicious though

Here is another to-go cup review.
This was on my radar because so many people go crazy over it, which to me is a red flag. I always seem to hate the ones everyone loves so yet again I put it off… and now I’m not sure why I did. This was so yummy and creamy and fruity. I tasted what the description said and I am grateful for that because I feel like this tea could’ve gone very wrong. Way to go DT, another winner!

I’ll admit, the was not even on my “to smell” list but I had her pull it down out of curiosity sake, and then it smelled so much better than I expected, and then I got a cup iced and it was sooooo tasty. It had a nice green tea flavor with hints of citrus.

Oh how my love of tea has grown since my first sip of Candy Apple Tea from Tea Geshwender six years ago. I am mostly a fan of Teavana and DavidsTea, though I do stray from time to time.
