drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
65 tasting notes

The smell of this in the tin (and, to a lesser degree, steeped) just makes me want to grab handfuls and eat it. It’s got a lovely sweet-slightly spicy-earthy-nutty smell that makes me so happy.

I know some people have issues with the pink from the beetroot, but I’m just happy it’s not from hibiscus. And I like that it gives it some colour, because I have a feeling that otherwise it’d just be slightly murky clear liquid, and that’s just sad.

The taste is interesting. I don’t pick up too much apple at first – mostly just a vaguely warm, sweet nuttiness. The spices aren’t hot, just warming. The earthy bitterness of the nuts goes well with the natural sweetness of everything else. Very delicate, almost weak, but next time I’ll try steeping it longer.

I’m with you on beetroot vs hibiscus. Oh my lord, hibiscus would wreck this tea.

Hibiscus pretty much ruins every tea.

Excellent! One of the best teas I’ve ever had. Clearly, it was delivered to us by the hands of the gods themselves. Would stockpile, order online, or kill to get more.

60-80
Good, and will keep stocked in my shelf if convenient.

40-60
Okay, nothing special.

20-40
Not very good. Would accept out of politeness, and then add too much sugar to mask the taste.

0-20
Bleh. I would rather drink mud.
