1.5 tsp for 300mL water @ 100C, steeped five minutes.
Tastes like pistachios and cream. The chamomile seems to give the body some nice heft. Not too sweet, and not too creamy. Soothing. A nice change from chamomile as a night tisane. Delighted.

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.

I made my very first trip to a DAVIDsTEA store today, hooray! Anyway, I’m on a perpetual hunt for good herbal/low caffeine teas because I’m very sensitive to caffeine. When I smelled this one in the store, I immediately fell in love. I love pistachios and got a nice big whiff of it. There’s also another smell that’s hard to identify, so maybe it’s mulberry? I’ve never actually had mulberry before.
The tea does not taste quite as strong as the smell, but the pistachio definitely comes through. There’s also that mystery taste/smell again, which I’m guessing is the mulberry. It’s creamy, but not as creamy as I expected it to be. There’s an overall nice, natural sweetness to it, which is perfect because I don’t like to add sweeteners to my tea (but I also don’t like bitter teas). So far, it’s one of my favorite herbals that I’ve tasted! I’m going to have to go back to buy more before fall is over!
During my first ever (!!) visit to a Davidstea, I smelled this and knew I had to purchase some. It’s super light so 44 grams of it absolutely stuffed the usual 50 gram bag that Davidstea uses. I love that it’s an herbal. It’s tastes exactly how it’s named, pistachios and cream. I’m a huge fan of pistachios and this delivers. It doesn’t taste exactly like pistachio ice cream, but it sure is close for zero calories!
2.5 teaspoons for my 16oz steeping mug + sweetener
I am currently stealing sips from my hubby’s brew of the evening.. I made a pumpkin chai and he made this…but then he went to the bathroom…and you know men and the bathroom….
Well that tea is going to be just plain cold by the time he gets out….it would be a shame… so I am taking it upon myself to drink it for him…it only seems right…
So this is really pretty good. I get the creaminess but it’s actually more of a caramel creamy to me…I think it’s the mulberry leaves….I def recognize the flavor..and the tea has that signature kinda grey green color about it. It isn’t what I would call very nutty tho. But it is really good. I think this is what I was expecting mulberry magic to taste like. Mulberry magic tho you could def taste the macadamia nut. It was nutty…here not so much. It’s also a little close to Gold Rush…but less tropical. I mostly honestly taste mulberry leaves and that caramel creaminess that comes from them….
Pistacios?? I dunno…but it is a nice herbal sip…Will be a good (cheaper ) substitute for Gold Rush when I want something caffeine free perhaps??
So I oversteeped but I hope that is a plus.
In the pouch this smells decadent,sexy as hell,creamy and like pistachios getting it on under silk sheets.
I’ve always loved pistachios so I’m looking forward to trying this. Hopefully it won’t be disappointing like Sugar and Spice ….sad story but true.( I’m sticking to Glitter and Gold)
This is very nice, silky smooth and sweet with gentle kisses of chamomile …I think steeping it so long let the taste really develop.
Perfect for: people who want decadent adult cures for an upset tummy,late night sweet tooth,warming and soothing needed during the rainy nights and a warm hug.
Final verdict: me likey! Gorgeous presentation and wonderful boot in the ass of traditional chamomile teas. Plus pistachio! Not sure if a staple yet but if you are stressed or anxious this is the answer to a fashionable sexy tummy tamer.
I was really looking forward to it, as I’ve developed a taste for Mulberry Magic (I started off disliking it), and love pistachios.
The smell from the bag is unbelievable. It reminds me of a liqueur – I’m just trying to nail down which one. Taste-wise, I’m not quite blown away. Its flavour is mild, and although it has a touch of creaminess to it, I don’t get pistachios.
I’ll keep trying, and maybe I’ll come to appreciate its subtle qualities. That’s what happened with Mulberry Magic. I think I have enough leaves for 2 or 3 more cups. That should be a fair trial.
Even if you never buy it, go into a DT and smell it. Wow.
steepster ate my note! Or I fell asleep and someone turned off my computer for me and I lost it…. yeah, that sounds like what must’ve happened.
I’ve been stuck in bed with a trashed ankle for 6 weeks now. Fell off of JAva and got my toe caught on part of the stirrup, so as I fell, my whole body weight came down on my ankle, snapping it back. Not a single bone is broken, but I shredded the ligaments and totally dislocated the foot. Let’s just say that if I didn’t have skin, I wouldn’t have a foot right now…6 screws, 2 plates, and a couple different casts later, and I’m put back together (for now). second surgery in January to remove the hardware, more time off the foot, and then a TON of physio. Ugh. Breaking my ankle would have been WAY better. Ah well, worst injury in 16+ years of horses so I shouldn’t complain too much.
The worst part of this bedrest has been my inability to make tea! I’m stuck in bed, less than 10 feet from my tea wall and my kettle, but crutches + trying to fill a kettle/make tea = bad times. Dad got a wheelchair for me, and I can finally make tea myself! still need someone to fill my kettle for me though…
But because it’s still tough to make a proper cuppa, i’ve been living off of teas and tisanes that I can toss in a filter bag, toss in a leakproof mug, then toss across to my bed. This has been one of my go to choices.
I LOVE mulberry leaf. It’s sweet and buttery and feels a bit rich. it’s a comforting thing. I enjoy Mulberry Magic, but find it to get a tad bitter after a while, possibly something about the macademia nuts in it. I really really like the pistachio substitution, it’s a lot creamier, doesn’t get bitter no matter how long it steeps, and the chamomile has been an added comfort that takes the edge off of any soreness I’m feeling.
All in all, the perfect balance of feeling like i’m drinking proper tea, easy grab and go, satisfying my sweet tooth, and bringing comfort and warmth to an otherwise depressing existence.
I actually gasped when I tried this…. it was a audible, “aaaaaaaaaaaagh”. In the best way possible. It is creamy and nutty and yummy. I love that its a herbal and I can enjoy it late at night. I only bought 20grams of this but I know that I will be getting more. Bravo David’s Tea, Bravo!!
oh and I totally over steeped it. I forgot and probably left it for 10 minutes or so.
Edited to add: second steep just as good!
