I just ordered from DAVIDsTEA for the first time. I’m loving their three-free-samples-with-every-order business. Toasted Walnut caught my eye, but I decided against ordering it because of the artificial flavouring and sugar. I actually found this to be the case with a lot of their blends. They sound awesome, but once you get past the 4th or 5th ingredient, you “Oh,” to find these unattractive additives.
Any-who, Toasted Walnut was one of my three free samples this week, and I did enjoy it. The smell was a little overwhelming, just my nose knew it was artificial. I expected it to taste just as strong as it smelled; maybe it was weak office water, but it wasn’t a bad tea overall. Not something I would drink often, or pay for, but a nice savory blend for an empty stomach at the cubicle farm.
