Blech! Not for me. I know some people really like apple strudel in a cup that is PINK. But it’s too tart for me. I know it’s one of Davids most popular tea but this is more for people who are mostly about herbal tisane’s. Pass me some caffeine

For almond lovers
It looks all normal when it’s loose. But steep it and you’ll see that it’s nuts. Within seconds, this tempting jumble of almond slices and chunks, apple bits and cinnamon bark starts turning a crazy shade of pink. Why? Because it contains a hint of beetroot. That’s what gives this rich almond tea its earthy depth and its all-natural signature colour. Deliciously nutty, decidedly addictive. Caffeine-free.
Ingredients: Apple, almonds, cinnamon, beetroot and artificial flavouring*.

AHHH forevernuts! how could i ever say anything bad about you?! Delicious and superfantastic to look at. Great tea for midnight candy cravings and when you want to feel pretty with a glass cup of pink tea! My cat friggin loves the smell of this tea, and it’s just so nommy when i’m craving granola. which is very often (my meal plan usually consists of granola, granola and more granola.) in fact, you can put this in your granola!
When I placed my most recent Lupicia order, I had purchased a “medium” mesh infuser, believing it would fit my current teapot. It turns out I was wrong. It was too big, but it was the perfect fit for my oversized latte mug I purchased from Target sometime last year? Super happy, because I hated using it for tea. I never had an infuser large enough to steep a large quantity of tea.
Anyway, there’s a point to this. I should probably get to it. I made this today partly in celebration of Beck releasing the lead single to his upcoming album(, and I am “forever nuts” ‘bout Beck; haha, I am hilarious). It — the tea, that is — was given to me by Steepster user Abby Noelle. It was a little baby tin (hadn’t realized David’s Tea’s tea samplers were so absolutely adorable) and was enough for at least two small cups or one HUGE cup of tea. I obviously chose the latter. I mean, I wrote an introduction paragraph that foresaw that outcome.
I really liked it. I don’t sweeten my tea very often, so I had this one straight. I love almonds, so I appreciated the taste super well. I didn’t see how it was spicy, though. It tasted more sweet to me, but maybe that’s due to the fact I couldn’t really taste the cinnamon. I will have to do a second steeping to see if that draws it out more. But — yeah, this is a super messy log, I know. I just liked this tea, and after looking at their website, it’s super cheap. I would definitely pick up ounces of this.
In the midst of all of the holidays I haven’t really had time to try a new tea. Today I received my order from DAVIDsTEA and decided to give a new tea a shot. This tea is very aromatic and definitely smells wonderful. I think it would be better had I of steeped this in milk or added some milk after steeping.
Very tart and apple cidery, as most people have noted.
Not sure if I like it, but I don’t hate it. But it’s a nice tisane, or ‘herbal’ tea.
Edit: For the 12g sample I had, I got 2 cups out of this. Reminds me of the Apple Cinnamon oatmeal I usually give my kids. No… I don’t like the tart, bitter flavour of the apples in this. Not going to get this again, but glad I tried it to see what the fuss was about. My cousin had also gotten a sample of this and rather enjoys it.
With a name like Forever Nuts I did imagine that this tea would contain more nuts than what it actually does. In appearance it is the same colour and consistently of chopped nuts which I suppose aids it’s name.
The apple pieces are tough and very dry which does not look very fresh. I can only spot a small amount of almond and cinnamon bark in the blend. Not very impressive so far. The smell is subtle with tones of dark spicy fruit at it’s best/strongest.
Once steeped the tea is deep pink in colour with a sweet, creamy and nutty scent. Like roasted almonds.
Hmmm… this is an… interesting… flavour. It tastes nutty, dry, sweet, fruity and tangy. I can’t taste any cinnamon or spice which was prominent in the raw scent. Every sip is a little different: fruit, nuts, candy, cake.
I’m still unsure about this one… it’s just different and I cannot decide if it’s a positive thing or not. My husband is undecided too.
Meh. I wanted to like this – it smells DELICIOUS, and I know it’s one of David’s Teas bestsellers – but I really don’t.
I think the problem is that this is a fairly delicate tea, and I was expecting something stronger and more robust. The dry tea smells nutty and almondy and delicious, and based on that smell I was expecting it to have a much stronger flavor. Something rich and nutty and deep, rather than the light and delicate nut flavor I’m getting.
Even with twice as much tea as recommended, it’s still too delicate for my taste. Maybe my own expectations rather than the tea itself are at fault here, but I’m still not impressed.
Maybe it’s not really the tea’s fault and should just
LOVE IT! Okay, so I think it’s safe to say that Forever Nuts hits the favorite list for the majority of people who’ve been to their local David’s Tea. Well, since It’s now summer time and we’re going from cold to iced teas, I decided to try it iced. Now, to my misfortune, post-water boiled and poured into my steeper, I realize I have no agave left and no ice in my freezer. Time to experiment!
I decided to fill a cup with frozen berries and use a couple of peach agave sticks. I put the agave sticks into the steeper so the cup itself wasn’t overwhelmingly sweet. Poured my now peach-sweetened Forever Nuts over my frozen berries and voila! I’m in heaven! Next time, to change it up a bit, I might do 2 perfect spoons of Forever Nuts and 1 of Banana Nut Bread. But the berries really brought out the fruity flavors of the tea. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone looking to try something new… If you alter the recipe and find it tastes better, let me know!
