Digging into my reserve of this as part of my mission to stop hoarding tea. It’s amazing how my tastes have changed because I really don’t love all the teas I used to, and at this point I just want to pare my collection down so that it consists of only my favorites.

I’d like to still try new teas, but first, must purge the older ones.

It’s sweet, it’s creamy, it is reminiscent of a frosting but as a suggestion rather than the actual flavor. It’s slightly fruity, and because of that it’s not quite what I’m looking for, I wouldn’t quite consider this desserty enough for me.

It’s decent, but I’m done with it now! To the swap/sell pile!

Initial impressions- Smells sweet, nondescript sweetness, quite dry, but pleasant. Looking at the leaves I can see chunks of fruit (mango), chamomile leaves, and white tea leaves.
How I prepared it- 94 degree water for six minutes, no sweetener, 1.5 tsp in one cup.
First sips- The initial flavour is light and hard to place, probably the chamomile after I look over the ingredients. The aftertaste is quite a bit more sweet and reminds me of the mangoes.
Conclusion- I did enjoy this tea. Perfect for after lunch at the office. Not my favourite dessert tea, but one I would absolutely buy again.

I can understand why it’s a favourite for some people, but it didn’t taste particularly creamy for me. It is very light and white tasting, but I’m not wild about the mixture of the chamomile and mango for some reason. It tasted a little sour on a second steeping.

It took me a few cups to get into this one. Overall, I like the taste, but wish it had a bit less chamomile and a bit more “buttercream” flavor. I’ve been enjoying this tea at work as an afternoon treat.

God I love the smell of this tea buttery rich creamy but light.
I am a big fan of white teas with their light taste and having the highest level of antioxidants in tea.
This is such a unusual mix of ingredients in a caffeinated tea and yet it works beautifully.
it’s very nice and light but rich and creamy as well.
A very pleasant tea,no need to sweeten.Wonderful experience to have mid-day when you want something sweet but not too sweet.

My friend sent me a taste of this to try. I love sharing teas. She suggested I go full force ahead and have it with a little cream and some kind of sweetener. I’ve got soymilk and a touch of agave in my mug and I have to say, it’s rather delicious! I’ve never gone out of my way to seek a tea with chamomile, but I would look for this one. Creamy and sweet, but it still tastes like tea. :) Just the way I like it.

I find this tea to be a bit of a hidden gem. It was really good! Not at ALL what I would have expected it to taste like with the subtle fruity edge, but it has a unique flavour all to it’s own. The chamomile is strongest, but with a lighter, smoother taste than normal. I didn’t add any milk to it, which I don’t usually do with most of the teas, but it didn’t need any.
I find it a nice evening tea, probably again because of the smooth camomile…. which I usually don’t drink on its own. The best word for Buttercream, according to that fact? Relaxing. It makes a nice movie-watching tea. Light, delicate, and ever so yummy. :) I’m not 100% sold on the icing theory, but that doesn’t even matter.
Attention DavidsTea fanatics: Oh, and one evening I added a tiny bit of Cranberry Pear to use up the last bit of what I had…. and it was perfect. “Cranberry Buttercream” MmmmmMMMmmmm, how I love you!

This is…strange. Maybe it’s because I have a cold, but the choice of flavors that are mixed in this seem odd to me. This is just my personal taste, but I feel like mango, chamomile, buttery-ness, and mint shouldn’t be mixed together. I drank it all, though, because any kind of tea helps when you’re sick. Not sure if I’ll have the rest of the sample pack.
