From DAVIDsTEA

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.

Goodness gracious great BALLS OF POPCORN! This smells like the movie theatre, both dry and liquor. It tastes like popcorn balls and apples and heaven. I had no idea apples went so well with popcorn. It’s like kettle corn with a hint of sweet apple flavoring. I added a touch of german rock sugar and a pinch of salt. I am literally gulping this down. I need to order this pronto. Thanks Jenn!

*I steeped the recommended 2 tsp per 8 ounces for 7 minutes at 200 degrees.

Yeah this tea is pretty much amazing. Glad you got to try it!!

Anna Vu

You have me pretty excited. I just ordered some tea from DAVIDsTEA and the next thing I know, you’re raving about the tea you got from them… Sounds like it’s going to be magical!

Ashley Bain

everything I’ve tried from them is great! I’ve got to place an order soon.

Teavangelical

I added a pinch of salt to this after reading this review. SO GLAD I DID.

Wow, this smells exactly like buttery, caramel corn! Yum! I really want to make some popcorn right now. But I’ll settle for having this tea instead. Or at least I’ll try this first and then see if the craving is still around. ;)

The ratio of green tea leaves to apple and popcorn pieces is about 1:20, so I’m interested to see how tea-like this is. I also probably could have gotten two cups out of this sample, but I just dumped the whole thing in my strainer without measuring. :P

The brewed tea aroma is also caramel corn with an added component of green tea. I’m not sure the combination is all that appealing. The other popcorn/caramel corn teas I’ve tried have had black tea bases. The taste will be the deciding factor though.

Wow, this flavor was completely unexpected from that aroma! It doesn’t taste like caramel corn at all. It also doesn’t taste anything like buttery popcorn. Instead, it tastes exactly like caramel apples! I guess that’s what DAVIDsTEA gets for putting tart apple in here and trying to pass that off as popcorn. Surprise! Apple tastes like apple!

This is actually pretty incredible. I’ve never had an apple tea that really tastes like genuine apple. And the addition of the caramel takes it from nice apple tea to awesome treat tea! For all you people out there combining Red Leaf Tea’s green apple matcha with caramel matcha in hopes of making a caramel apple tea, try this instead!!! It’s not what it promises (because it tastes nothing like popcorn), but that doesn’t mean it’s not a fantastic tea! It just needs to be renamed. :)

Thank you Ninavampi for sharing this delightful surprise!!!

This is tasty stuff! I don’t prefer as much flavored tea as I used to drink but this is really good!

Glad you liked it!

My plan when I went upstairs to make tea was to prepare some whites and maybe a fruit tisane. I also planned to make a second cup of matcha. Somehow that turned into me grabbing older swaps instead and making two green teas, an oolong, and eating some yogurt (which did not come in a swap).

This is one of the teas I picked up in Janelle’s stash sale a few months back. It was never something that interested me in store but people speak so highly of it here that I though I would give it a try. Unfortunately the sample I got looks pretty crushed so hopefully that doesn’t have an effect on the taste.

Tastewise, this is pretty vegetal. I am getting a lot of butteriness but none of the apple or maple I hear so much about. It is almost like drinking the melted butter they put on popcorn at movie theatres…well if that popcorn also had a vegetal green tea component. This really is not for me. I am trying to drink the cup but honestly I think this is getting dumped.

I brewed this properly yesterday and was less than impressed. In my experience, the longer the steep time the more the base disappears and the apple starts to pop. I love it, but it is a very different tea.

VariaTEA

I have enough for one more cup so I will try a longer steep and see what happens

This was another nearly-full 50 gram bag from Ninavampi!

The dry leaf smells soooooooooooooooo good! I already don’t care if I don’t like this brewed, because I love what it smells like in the bag! It smells very sweet, like caramel and maple. I’m also getting some chemicalish smell, but honestly that doesn’t bother me.

Brewed up 2.25 tsp in 6 oz of slightly cooler water for the maximum 7 minutes. The tea liquor is a slightly murky yellowish color. I immediately put some rock sugar in to maximize the sweetness. This tastes more like a candied apple to me. I get the mapley caramel in the beginning of the sip, but it ends on a slightly tart apple note.

I really like this one! It’s definitely different from other teas I have in my cupboard. I’m interested in trying this one cold.

I agree; this one is definitely candy apple!

SIPDOWN! Thanks to courtney for this sample in our swap. Probably not a tea that i would ever choose to pick up on my own. In dry form this smells like candied, caramel popcorn. I steeped this for a long time, as i accidentally got distracted with someone else. The good thing being that this is one of those 5-7 min steeps, so it’ll take a bit of a beating i think.

In liquid form, this smells like caramel popcorn but only the initial taste carries that popcorney kinda of taste. The end of the sip is more like candied apple. While i’m not overly a fan of this, it’s a decent blend and i’m glad to have tried it. Thank you for this one courtney!

I tried this with 1.5 teaspoons instead of 2 because I wanted to see if it would hold up. It does! I think I like this even better than last time I had it. I steeped it for 7 minutes at 95 degrees so that is probably why. Longer steep than I am used to.
This tea is so complex with lots of different notes….caramel, maple, apple, popcorn!….just plain yummy.

Yes, yes, this is good. What I mean by good is that I can drink it without sweetener — I need a few more of those kind — and while I can tell it would probably be way better sweetened it is enjoyable without.

I’ve had my fill of sugar this morning with my two cups of coffee that had both vanilla creamer and sugar so I figured I would stop ingesting empty calories, it’s but 1 o’clock.

Which is why I grabbed this tea. It smells sweet and apple and popcorn-like. The dry leaf is mostly other stuff and then some tea. Looks like goji pop in that respect. I was quite afraid to steep it at the recommended 201F because last time I steeped a green that high (Kokomo green) it was awful! So I started to be a little mistrustful of their steeping instructions. But then again, you look at the giant chunks of stuff in here and treat it like an herbal. Ditto for steeping times. 5-7 minutes? Someone’s surely on crack. But I did it because I have a large enough bag to take a chance.

It tastes good. (Sorry, keychange! We don’t agree on this one) I do detect a slightly sour note at the back but not an unpleasant one. And yes, the aftertaste is total popcorn. I wouldn’t smuggle it into the movie theatre though. It is not THAT good and part of the movie experience is filling up on the bad shit there.

Speaking of movies, I’m going today. August:Osage County. Oscar countdown is on folks. Got a lot to catch up on.

A bizarre concept, but a surprising like for me too.

Tuscanteal

I find some of DT’s steeping temps and times were picked by people not paying attention. Kokomo Green I don’t tastes good any way you brew it… but that’s my personal take on that tea.

TheTeaFairy

I don’t like the idea of popcorn in my tea at all, and yet, this one of very few DT I keep around, really like its unusualness. Glad you like it too :-)

I had really hoped to like this tea but there is something off about it. I normally love popcorn, and maple, plus apples…just maybe not all at once. There were too many competing flavors for this to be enjoyable. I tried a sample from a previous order, but did so AFTER I purchased two bags. As a result, I have one unopened bag for sale:

And the rest of the other bag is off to my tea sister Sare – if she wants it. :)

Kittenna

I liked this one the first time I tried it, but the second time, something seemed off. Oh well!

Babble

Still have a sample of this I need to try. Bummer you didn’t like it. It sounds so unique!

25/12/2012 gonna go see 3 movies today!

popcorn balls. it smells like popcorn balls. and the scent is strong, because i had the teabag ready and just sitting here for most of the morning and even though i was drinking two other delicious teas THIS in the scent i most noticed over and over again.
once brewed, most of this tea is in the nose. over and over i smell the tea more than i taste it. though as it cools it tends to get an interesting buttery kind of flare or texture?
i don’t know about you but this tea has very little actual tea leaves in it. it’s mostly a fruit tea with a sprinkling of green tea added. which is nice when you wanna mellow out a bit. so i will try to keep that in mind. this tea is not just for the movies!
salty maple and buttery apple. nom nom nom. i should think of it more like a baked desert tea. i guess i’ve started to realize how much i like apple teas. cuz i seem to have a lot of them. and also i eat the real thing everyday.

CHAroma

Which three?

Shmiracles

oh umm, LesMis – Wreckit Ralph – Lincolin
still hope to see Django Unchained soon soon

CHAroma

I just saw Django! If you like Tarantino, you’ll love this one. How was Les Mis and Lincoln? I haven’t heard anything about either, which was rather unexpected.

This tea is the tastiest most awesome thing ever.
The smell is awesome like caramel popcorn or caramel apples. The apple taste isn’t too strong, and the maple taste is just right!

It steeped for a while, maybe too long? I don’t know but it was delicious either way. EDIT: Whatever you do, do NOT understeep this tea. You will be cheating yourself of the real flavour.

I LOVE a tea you don’t have to put sweetener in but still tastes a bit sweet, and this tea is perfect for that. It tastes just like it smells!

I really love this tea too!

Cattibrie

I hesitated to drink this one for weeks. So glad I did and now I need to get some more.

Maxime-Daniel Friðrikson

Hum… I do need this one! I’ve tasted it as a sample and I must say you’re right abut the review! This tea is simply delicious straight.

DaisyChubb

isn’t it? DT really hit the jackpot with this one. Took a big risk and it turned out perfect! :D Awesome “watching-movies-on-a-rainy-day” tea n_-
