Enjoying this tea after a day of work on a day between winter and spring. I love the combination of apple and nuts with the green tea- it’s kind of like a liquid hug! One of the first David’s Teas I tried and still love it today!

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’m a green tea girl at heart. But lately I’ve been sticking more to blacks because I just need more caffeine. This tea reminded me why I love green tea so much. The nuts (subtle which is what I like) and the fruit balance each other out perfectly. I like to crumble the larger chunks of walnut into smaller pieces so that the walnuts last longer and because honestly, can you actually “steep” the flavour out of a walnut? And if you can, wouldn’t it work better if it was in smaller pieces? But that’s just me. Anyway. I had to buy a big tin.
hurrah! i’ve been wanting to try this one. i got some for my dad and he really likes it, and when i smelled it dry, it reminded me of almond roca (my faaavourite christmas treat!) plus green tea, which is always welcome.
nice! less of that creamy smell when steeped but you get that lovely nutty overtone. the flavour really comes through nicely as well. this would go great with some kind of really sweet, chocolaty dessert i would imagine.
It’s not as nutty as I hoped it would be, but that’s actually alright – it maintains a great balance between nut and coconut, with a bit of a grassy bite. I steeped it for a little too long I think and so it’s quite astringenty, but still easy enough to drink. I’ll have to review it again when I don’t forget to leave it steeping.
The smell of it raw is incredible. The walnut is definitely there, as is an almond and coconut syrup smell, all toasted together for a slightly sweet nutty scent.
It definitely has the hint of pineapple since it’s got a tangy aftertaste. It definitely tastes like walnut and coconut. It’s a good tea for a rainy day or a winter night… a-la “chestnuts roasting on an open fire!” feel except it’s walnuts, lol. It’s good without sweetening it and I prefer this one hot since it’s nice and nutty.
