From DAVIDsTEA

A new classic
Our love affair with pistachios goes way back. In fact, archaeologists have unearthed ancient pistachio seeds and crackers almost 800,000 years old. Hey, why mess with a classic? With their sweet, creamy taste and pretty pale green colour, pistachios are definitely one of a kind. And when you blend them with super-healthy mulberry leaves, you get a blend that’s not only decadently delicious – it’s also incredibly good for you. What will they think of next?

Ingredients: Mulberry leaf, pistachios, chamomile, natural cream, macadamia and pistachio flavouring.

The first tea I’m trying from my first swap on the site, from my Secret Pumpkin Lariel! Thanks. (:

This smells insanely creamy steeping. Like you could cut through the air with a knife heavy cream-like. When I put my nose right up to the pot I get the pistachio. I don’t think I’ve had mulberry leaf in tea that I’ve noticed in my glass teapot before—at first I was like “What’s this? It looks a bit like oolong!” The color in the cup is surprising too, reminds me a little of guayusa, that sort of dark green soil-y hue.

Like with most David’s stuff I’ve tried the smell is quite powerful and then the taste is more subdued. This one’s better than many though in terms of living up to the aroma some. The nuttiness becomes more present as the tea cools a little. I like how there’s a slight saltiness both in smell and taste akin to, yep, a pistachio. Tasty! I don’t think I’ve actually had any tisanes from David’s come to think of it—which makes this extra cool as I often found myself unimpressed with the black bases they use for their flavored teas. That’s not a problem here, so goody.

I’ve been weirdly upset/emotional/stressed out lately for a handful of reasons (that IRS thing, my husband’s job stress, the holidays looming, my seasonal depression kicking in, still mourning my old coworker and friend, and a sick cat in our backyard I’m trying to save and worried is not going to make it and the ensuing feeling of being an inadequate decision-maker when something’s life is on the line, ugh), and tea and rediscovering musicians I loved and bonded with people over when I was younger are the two saving graces lately. I was getting a bit jumpy tonight after so much good black and green tea all day and this was just the thing to calm me down with its sweet, soothing herbal properties. Got the house to myself right now post-band practice, gonna keep watching comfort food stuff like X-Files now after writing in my diary and listening to Richard Buckner and Spiritualized for hours.

I know what you mean about going through an emotional, depressive phase. I hope it gets better. You’re stronger than you feel.

Thanks a lot keychange! Those are kind words and exactly the sort of thing I needed to hear. I’m still rooting for you and that durned exam, by the way. (:

Not gonna lie, I was obsessed with this tea for awhile during Fall 2013 it got me though all my studies for Biology! Tastes like Pistachio Ice Cream! Though for some reason, and maybe its just me, but even though its an herbal, I still have to be really delicate with this tea. Meaning, don’t use too hot water, don’t over steep, but steep enough or it will not have a flavor! I also suggest to use a bit of german rock sugar or sweetener.

Tea #6 from Traveling Tea Box C

Pistachio ice cream is one of my favorite ice creams. I was definitely curious about this one when I saw it in the box. Then I noticed that it’s an herbal with Mulberry Magic as it’s base! I really like Mulberry Magic, and was curious how it would work with the pistachio flavor.

I really like this one! The mulberry flavors are toned down, but still add a nice solid base, and add to the creaminess factor. And the pistachio flavor is very nice as well. Clearly present, clearly pistachio, without tasting weird or being over powering. And the whole thing is definitely creamy! I think I like this more than plain Mulberry Magic. This was in one of the small sample packs. I used about half for my sample, and I think I’m going to claim the last teaspoon unless anyone on the list dearly wants to try it.

I like this one more too. :D

I saw your note about it after I had made this one! I’m definitely tempted to look into getting more of this

I actually quite enjoyed this one. I like mulberry magic so I was hoping it would be similar. It is a bit similar but also very different due to the chamomile. I like the creaminess of it though.
I think I still prefer mulberry magic though.
It is also very delicious cold, maybe even better actually.
I think I might try a longer steep next time, I noticed some people were steeping for 7 minutes.

This came as a free sample along with my awesome new Nordic leaf mug (seriously, it has to be the coolest mug ever). I don’t think I would have ever picked this tea for myself, so I’m really glad to have gotten the chance to try it out. I’m seriously thinking about purchasing it if it ever goes on sale.

I was a little disappointed that there weren’t any actual pistachios in the sample, but the pistachio flavor turned out to be quite convincing. The dry leaf had a very nutty smell, but smelled a bit too strongly of alcohol. Once steeped, the smell was absolutely delicious— nutty and creamy. The pistachio flavor was at the forefront with a bit of a vanilla finish.

I don’t know what the chamomile brought to the table. As someone who does not enjoy chamomile in the slightest, I can’t say I’m disappointed that its taste was nowhere to be found.

Sleepy Hollow brunch, as I had to watch a new autumn show with my new seasonal tea. And I can’t help but wonder what the main character would think of my electric kettle.

Anyway, I did like this one in the store. It smells nicely like ice cream. I’ve not had mulberry leaves before, but they’re pretty good.
And the flavour is sweet, creamy, and nutty.

Dry Leaf Nose: A full, sweet, pistachio and cream aroma.

Liquor: A delightful dark green clear liquor with a heady pistachio-cream aroma.

Flavour: The balance of mulberry leaves and pistachios is both delicious and complex. Nutty, sweet, and simply scrumptious.

Out of the fall flavours that I tried – I didn’t bother with cocoberry mate, this one was my favourite. So sweet and creamy. I’m tempted to buy more of it – though I know if I do, I need to do it soon ‘cos of the winter tea’s coming out.

A mix of Mulberry Magic and Toasted Almond. Very creamy without too much actual cream. Sweet, savory and very comforting like its parents. Of all the three new blends this would be second place. I can imagine sitting by the fire enjoying this one for months until the Winter collection easily. I also imagine that due to its neutral flavor it could blend well with the power house chai blends on the Fall Menu.

Say for instance Pistachio Cream mixed with Pumpkin Chai? Can you say Pumpkin Pie A La Mode? The possibilities are endless. I just found out I had a lactose sensitivity recently so these teas may just be my way of enjoying those specialties without worries. So this could be really cool! Cheers.
