Absolutely loved this tea!! I brewed up a put and drank the whole thing in one evening… by myself. Lol. It’s that wonderful!! I loved the nutty coconut deliciousness!! I can’t wait to buy some more!!

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 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.
One of my favourites! I have had this quite a few times now and I am still not tired of it (had it again tonight!)! The smell is lovely (the smell of walnuts to me..!) and the smell when steeped is pleasantly nutty as well! The taste overall is great too! Really nutty and tasty.. I look forward to every cup and I hope that you all will too!
I’ve come to realize I have mixed feelings about teas that have “nuts” as their main flavor. They always smell promising, they are always quite nice, but they never end up being like “WOW!” even though I always seem to have high hopes. Maybe it’s because they never taste as strongly as they smell, so I end up being disappointed ? I don’t know…
That being said, I have had a craving for this particular tea for a few days, so I’m enjoying it a lot right now. I don’t know exactly what it tastes like. Weirdly, I get a bit of Queen Elizabeth cake (which is very popular here in Quebec but I have no idea if other people know about it lol) my grandma used to make, and also some kind of alcohol especially in the smell (tia maria?) Anyway, it’s a very comforting tea :)
It smelled like… toasted walnut! Haha. And it had a nutty taste that was oh so lovely and comforting. The pineapple in it goes really well, because it is very slight; not over powering. Same for the coconut, I barely noticed it at all! The green tea base compliments the nuts, and made me feel better and energized after drinking it. :) Great tea, overall, I would definitely buy more in the near future!
This is a good tea that I often share with people that are just starting tea drinking. The smell reminds me of breakfast without being too buttery and the taste is smooth, naturally sweet, and not bitter. It holds up well to long infusions without getting too astringent.
A fantastic tea to start with. I decided to make iced tea with this by about 50% more tea leaves. After it steeped, I threw it in the fridge to let it chill then served over a glass full of ice. I like this tea a lot in the first place, but I may love this more iced!
This green tea has a roasty flavor and a slightly sweet aftertaste. I didn’t get any whole walnut pieces, but the nuttiness is present when you drink. I think the pineapple flavor is pretty strong, especially if you let the tea cool down a bit. For my taste, a strict two minute steeping was key. If I let it go longer, the fruity flavors started to develop more and get in the way of my walnut experience. Not something I’d drink on the regular, but I’m glad I tried it.
