Interesting flavor.. it tastes like caramel apple popcorn. The smell is the best part about this tea, the taste is ok, and the aftertaste is a little bit sweet and maple-y. It’s fun to try but probably wouldn’t want to drink this regularly!

A new tradition
This popcorn tea is better than the real thing. First of all, it has no calories. Second of all, it’s sweetened with maple and apple. Third of all, it has green tea, which studies (well, ok, experience) say is the ideal brew for keeping you quietly alert throughout a late-night flick. Great for thrillers, dramas, westerns or comedies. Drink it at home or smuggle it into the theatre.

Love love love this tea. Smells like popcorn, but I find it doesn’t taste that way. Has more of a caramel apple sort of flavour; sweet at first bite, then a bit tart, but not over powering at all. This is one of my favourite teas from Davids Tea (I am a HUGE fan). It is my go to morning cuppa. Would never want to see this one go away….
I used 5 David’s Tea perfect scoops for my ~450 ml thermos.
Sweet coconut-like flavour. The tangy apple flavour just peeks through. The sencha flavour gives a background smokey roasted flavour with hints of vegetal taste. Popcorn flavour is present. Strong toffee flavour aftertaste.
The second infusion is a muted version of the first infusion. The coconut-like flavour is able to come out a bit more and the tangy apple isn’t as harsh. I added a few grates of ginger to this brew and it complemented everything nicely.
I’ve been avoiding this one since it was released last year, but finally I bit the bullet and decided to give it a try. Caramel corn isn’t my favourite thing in the world, but I like maple, apples, and popcorn, which is what David claims this tastes like. So I tried it.
Nope, it’s a really weak flavoured caramel corn tea. Which, I’m not sure that is a flavour I have ever really imagined for a tea. (Also, I use the term tea lightly since I barely saw any in the bag I was given.) I can definitely see this being a tea for my sister, however, as she adores caramel corn and all things associated with it. I suspect I’ll be giving the rest of my bag to her.
Haven’t had this one in a loooong time! I’m so glad that I dove into this one again. It was the tea to keep me warm as I watched my husband play some baseball! And it got quite cold there at one point… I’m probably heading to bed shortly to try and warm up.
Anyway, just to recap on my review from 2 years ago, this tea is fantastic. It’s amazing how the popcorn actually tastes great and this tea is just perfect for that after dinner snack. It kills the popcorn cravings and really just hits the spot.
Absolutely dynamite. Love it and would enjoy it again without even batting an eye, which is good. I have probably 3/4 of a tin left.
The first time I tried this I think it was over-steeped because I found the after taste stronger than the actual tea.
When steeped properly its delicious! Tastes how it smells. I sweeten it with a bit of maple syrup to bring out the maple taste. Really good hot and can imagine its delicious cold too :) I recommend trying it. Make sure you use 2 heaping teaspoons to ensure it has enough flavour.
I bought about 2 ounces of this blend while on vacation; it was one of several teas from DT that I’ve been wanting to try. I was a bit wary of it because I’m not a fan of sweet popcorn (caramel corn, kettle corn and the like), but I figured I’d give it a go after reading everyone’s glowing reviews and praise. I tried this tea (iced) last night, and it just isn’t for me. The blend is pretty much one note – sweet popcorn. If that’s your bag then this is your tea. If not, steer clear. I’ll be finding a new home for the rest of my 2 ounce bag.
