Tried this in the DT advent calendar. Pretty good. Wouldn’t purchase for my shelf though.

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 was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one. I don’t mind green tea, but I’m not a huge fan, either. Toasted Walnut has a great smell to it, and a nice, delicate taste. I’m not sure how walnutty it really was, but that’s ok, as it tasted good anyway.
The second infusion was even lighter tasting, but still good. I have enough for a few more cups before I have to decide if I’ll replenish.
Woweeeeee! I first tried this tea … two years ago? Three years? I don’t even remember. Much like I really didn’t remember how this tea tasted, just that my impression of it at the time was “No thank you”. I made it to one of the stores over the weekend, and decided what the heck, I’ve been meaning to drink more greens this year, might as well give this another go. It smelled DIVINE in the tin, which helped matters along quickly, and I grabbed 25g. This is toasty, nutty, and subtly sweet. The pineapple isn’t out of place like I feared it would be. Definitely not a tart tea (phew). There’s some light vegetal-grass-green coming out at the back of the sip, but overall, I’m kind of loving this? Is it my cold? Is it making my taste buds change? Or is it just time? Either way, I think I’m going to have to grab more of this! It’s kind of everything I wished Forever Nuts was. Warmly nutty and still tea-like, as opposed to crazy pink, artificial, and weirdly tangy-sour from too much fruit. Shudder.
I tried it as a latte before I left for the week—decided I’d leave all my nut teas home—and oh goodness. So much happiness. I brewed it half in water, half in almond coconut milk, and added in a spoon of honey. Mmmm. And . . . now I’m craving it. Drats.
Just tried this tea the other day in store, thought that even though it had an ugly green colour that the taste was very flavourful and tasted like walnuts. I also was surprised that it didn’t taste like green tea to me, it kinda reminded me of David’s Tea flavour “Forever Nuts”, if you have every tried and liked that flavour then you definatley need to check out Toasted Walnut.
