The smell of the tea was okay and it had a hint of walnut in the taste (which always reminds me of forever nuts) but the rest of it was just too overpowering for me. I’m not really into Green Teas so much lately so I found it really hard to drink.

Drink it fireside
Traditional Chinese medicine says walnuts are a warming food. Which makes sense, because this is the kind of tea you spontaneously want to cozy up to on a cold winter afternoon. The comforting, lightly bitter taste of toasted walnuts is sweetened and deepened with dried pineapple, coconut, almond and organic green tea. Sip it in front of an open fire and chase away the cold.
Ingredients: Chinese sencha green tea, nut brittle, candied pineapple, coconut rasps, almond flakes, walnut bits.

I’ve only had it once, but let me tell you it made me want more!
This is a great green tea with a little ‘something’ extra! Nice and smooth, slightly nutty, i didn’t really taste the pineapple. Which is great because i think if i had, i wouldn’t of liked it as much!
Flavors: Nutty, Smooth
So…sending me the same free sample repeatedly has finally paid off for the folks at DT because I’ve recently purchased 150 grams of this tea.
This is the only permanent flavored green tea from DT (that I’ve tried thus far) that I would consider adding as a staple in my collection. Many people seem to dislike this tea but I really enjoy it. It’s wonderful – lightly sweetened and iced.
It’s a dessert tea, through and through. The name is puzzling because I don’t think it tastes like walnuts, toasted or otherwise. I find it tastes like a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie that’s had dried pineapple and coconut added to the batter.
I imagine it would be quite nice hot with some non-dairy milk (almond or coconut or hazelnut milk, yum!), but, for now, I’m perfectly content to drink it cold or over ice.
Flavors: Coconut, Nuts, Pineapple
It’s a nice nutty – I taste more of almond like flavour but you do get a hint of walnut. It’s not too sweet and not too bitter. The fruit flavours are really subtle and sometimes can be steeped right out of the tea if oversteeped, but when they are present they have a nice underlying taste to it. Not very good as a cold drink, I found.
Flavors: Almond, Coconut, Creamy, Fruity, Melon, Pineapple, Sweet, Vanilla, Walnut
I found that the toasted walnut flavour and almond overpowered the sencha, and it tasted a tad too artificial for my liking (personal preference). The fruit in it didn’t mix very well with the walnut and left a tart aftertaste. If someone gave me a cup and told me that it is made from nuts and a small amount of pineapple, with no green tea, I would believe them.
Flavors: Almond, Coconut, Nutty, Tart, Walnut
This is probably one of my favourite green tea’s, and one of my favourite hot tea’s ever. The smell is like a creamy vanilla-coconut dessert and the taste is like a white chocolate cake with hazelnuts and coconut shavings. SO GOOD.
Flavors: Coconut, Hazelnut, Vanilla, White Chocolate
I had been putting off trying this because I wasn’t big on Forever Nuts. BUT – I consider Toasted Walnut much better.
I found this one of the most complex tasting teas that I’ve ever had. As it was steeping I was struck by a sweet vanilla scent. It took me a second to realize it was my tea.
Upon first taste, I thought vanilla. Second sip, hmm…a bit nutty, a bit toasty, some coconut. Third sip, back to vanilla. I felt like my taste buds kept jumping every time I took a sip. It was cool.
I’d describe this tea as very comforting and smooth. The type of tea you want to have when you’ve been outside all day in the cold.
Although it is a good tea, I don’t see myself making it part of my permanent collection since it’s not OMFG-AMAZING-CRAVING-IT good.
Flavors: Coconut, Nuts, Toasty, Vanilla
I find this tea comes to me in waves of enjoyment. Some weeks i’ll drink it non-stop and some weeks it’s entirely unappealing. I’m just about to finish off the sample I got for Christmas; really loving this cup right now. For some reason, I don’t see myself ever getting it again just cause.. I actually think I’ve yet to find a tea that I’ll always have around. It is, however, my favourite nutty tea. At least so far.
Though I can’t say my experience with nutty teas is overly expansive, I definitely can appreciate this for its very true taste. Very prominently walnut/almond, tastes just like the nuts. I don’t think I can honestly say that I’ve had a fruit tea that tastes exactly like the fruits themselves; it’s always a more fictionalized version, the absence of which seems to be something of definite character for the world of nut teas.
Flavors: Almond, Nutty, Walnut
