Sooooo…. this tea is kind of confusing me. I have been shopping at DAVIDsTEA for a couple years now and I’ve heard that this tea is THE BEST. I haven’t tried it until now. I have always imagined that it would be like drinking peanut butter. I like peanut butter, but I didn’t like the idea of drinking it really so it never interested me…The only reason I’m drinking this right now is because it was in the 12 Days of Tea collection.
Dry, this smells really nutty (which is pretty obvious lol) but also kind of spicy. I smelled cloves in this, although I don’t remember if they’re actually in this tea. There is also a very strong cinnamon smell.
This tea isn’t awful, and I hope you don’t get the wrong impression from my review. It was just not as peanut-y as I assumed it would be. It’s more of an apple-cinnamon flavor. I cannot think of what it reminds me of, although I know it reminds me of some sort of cookie or something (one other reviewer said it tastes like mini donuts – this might be what I’m thinking of…). It smells really yummy, but I think the smell is better than the taste. It’s very cinnamony and brown sugar-y but not as nutty as I was expecting (and more apple-y than I was expecting).
Would I drink this again? Yes. But only because I still have some left. I wouldn’t buy a tin of this, but it could definitely be a lot worse than this.
(For a nutty tea, I prefer Bubbie’s Baklava)
