drank Mulberry Magic by DAVIDsTEA
38 tasting notes

This came in the “Around the World” sampler pack that I bought at DAVIDsTEA. This is a pack of 12 teas that come in small tins, and are packaged in a small box with a card that lists the descriptions.

I thought it was really funny that for this tea, the description on the card starts off with the question: “Why is everybody talking about mulberry leaves?” I don’t know a single person talking about Mulberry leaves. Hahahaha.

Anyway, about the tea…

When I smell it, I get the sensation of a buttery peanut. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, buttery peanuts do not necessarily smell refreshing, nor do they sound like something I would like to drink.

I was kind of thinking about buttery peanuts on my first sip, and I think it weirded me out a little. However, now that I have had several sips, I think this tea is delicious.

Like I mentioned above, I do not think it is a refreshing cup of tea, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. For example: at the end of a long day, I might have a mint tea to unwind and relax. That is refreshing. At the start of a long day, I might have a strong black tea, which I wouldn’t consider refreshing either, but I still really really like black teas.

The aftertaste almost has a light buttery note and a light peanut note, which is interesting.
