From DAVIDsTEA

The Grand Bazaar
Call it Istanbul, Constantinople or Byzantium. Either way, the Queen of Cities has always been full of fabulous bazaars and people haggling over pistachios, almonds and spices. This tea uses all those ingredients to honour the metropolis that spans East and West, Asia and Europe. Plus it’s laced with delicious Turkish apple tea, the local sign of hospitality. Close your eyes and travel.

Feeling pretty pretty this evening, and didn’t want to pull out any of the usual suspects, so I dug deep and found this hiding in my Summer Collection box. (It isn’t part of the Summer Collection, but I drank most of those teas down to nothing and the box makes for good storage.)
The tea itself smells like those containers of sugared dried fruit that I can eat in one sitting. (Yeah, we’re talking the enormous 2L Archer Farms container. I loves me some sugared dried fruit.) And in the BREWED tea, I usually don’t smell much of anything but the fruit, but tonight I’m getting an amazing push of marzipan! It’s so potent that I can feel the grainy, clutching texture of the almond paste in my empty mouth. It is really quite nice.
I’m worried I’m going to be disappointed by the flavour. I dumped in a little bit of whole milk (it’s so nice having a toddler around; you have a great excues to buy the 2L boxes of whole milk!), but no sugar. UNFORTUNATELY, while it was steeping I also dumped two freshly-made peanut crisp cookies in my mouth. Those cookies involve 1 cup of flour and 1.25 cups of brown sugar, so all of the sweetness of the tea might be spoiled by the sweetness already in my mouth. We’ll see. Fingers crossed.
Mmmmm, no. No, it’s good.
The lack of sugar lets me taste the actual TEA in this tea. It just tastes like a really excellent, lightly sweet black tea. The ingredients list just says “black tea”, so I don’t know what kind of black tea this is, but more disturbingly, I can’t find this tea on the David’s Tea website.
What the living will? WAS THIS TEA DISCONTINUED??
Well, nuts to soup. Now I’ll have to hoard it.

Hey, hate to bear bad news, but yes, Turkish Delight got the axe earlier this year. Very disappointing. That blend can be lovely.

It’s on the website right now…either they have some in a warehouse or it’s been reinstated. But Zing Me is still online and that got chopped too.

Steeped, and then iced. I’ve had this tea a couple times and wanted to try it cold because I thought, with the pistachios, it would be quite refreshing. This is a tea that seems to need to be sweetened (I use honey) just a touch, but I didn’t add milk. This tea does sort of remind me of a bubble tea that I had was, but I can’t quite remember what flavour it was…

I need to make iced tea more often!

This tisane has become one of my favorite treats. It’s deffinitely not an every day tea.

David’s Tea recommends a 3-5 minute steep in boiling water. I’ve found a slightly longer steep in just less than boiling water works best. It seems to scorch the flavor out of the apple and pistachio bits.

Turkish Delight has a lighter flavor. The red peppercorns and pistachio’s add something special to the infusion.

What makes this tea for me is the aroma. It’s complex but not confusing. It’s light, bur noticeable.

I’d say, give it a shot. You just might like it.

Complex. Steep carefully. Save this one for a proper sit-down; Turkish Delight is not to be drunk thoughtlessly while checking e-mail. A little sweetener (I use stevia) brings out the peppercorns, pistachios and especially the apples. The tea itself is a China black, I think, and quite smooth. Don’t oversteep, because this one might get bitter. I use water just off the boil because I’m afraid of scalding the fruit.

I am absolutely gutted they discontinued this tea. Admittedly I didn’t taste any of the nuts promised in this tea, it strongly tasted tangy and apple-ey, but I still loved it. It didn’t taste like apple juice but it was definitely an apple-centric tea. I wish I bought a bag before they discontinued it.

I actually did not like this tea. It looks nice – mix of black tea and LOTS of nuts -, but tastes like … I’m not sure if anyone agrees me but … ‘seaweed’…
If you put a lot of sugar and milk though, it tastes good. Though what does not taste good with sugar and milk?
