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.

Thank you for a sample of this one, CHAroma! I’ve never had a tea like this, but somehow it tastes pretty much like I imagined, though a little lighter on flavor. This should be a caffeine free option. I don’t really know anything about mulberry. The mulberry leaves are very big, then I only see the occasional chamomile bud or pistachio. The flavor is very light, kind of like a mild flavored oolong with only a hint of cream and pistachio. This blend is what I wanted but I just wish there had been more flavor!

This is a super sad sipdown for me. I love this tea so much, and I kept saying over and over again that I was going to pick some up, but then I couldn’t get to DAVIDs for a while, and then when I finally did, it was completely gone.
Pistachio Cream is just so unique, and such a wonderful, calming blend of flavours. A bit earthy, a bit green, a bit floral, creamy, nutty, pistachio, chamomile, sweet. Amazing. I wish so much that DAVIDs would bring this back.
I’ve been hoarding my last cup worth for months, but it’s the new year and I’m not feeling great, so I figured I would enjoy the last bit and say goodbye.
If anyone has any of this that they don’t love or would at all be willing to part with, I would love to swap or buy it from you. Please please please?

I love pistachio. so of course I had to try this. Nutty creamy and a little something unigue about it (probably from the Mulberry Leaf). The first half of the cup, while still hot, I kept sipping and going mmmm, and thinking how I was definitely going to keep this. But as I kept sipping and as it cooled, I started to reconsider. As it cools it loses some of the yummy nutty goodness, and its more of that unique flavor. I might or might not be keeping this. The first half was so good, but the second half was less so.
Thank you SO much to VariaTea for letting me sample some of this! So glad I did, because I don’t like it as much as I thought I would, so I’m less crushed that it’s gone. Sure, it was sweet and creamy, with vegetal mulberry leaf flavour (and it didn’t leave my throat scratchy like Mulberry Magic), and it was quite enjoyable, but I didn’t really taste pistachio… and to be honest, Butiki’s cream flavouring blows this away, too, so I’m just as happy if not moreso with Creamy Eggnog or Pistachio Ice Cream. Of course, there’s the sad fact that Butiki is closing… but at least I stocked up on those teas, while this one is completely unavailable. Certainly tasty enough though, and had I the chance, I’d stock up on 50-100g of it mostly because it’s delicious AND caffeine-free (rare combo, sometimes).
Busted out my first tea from my swap with VariaTEA tonight, hooray! She’s been hard at work; I’m seeing a lot of mentions of her on my feed lately :D
I needed something cosy, cheery and caffeine-free tonight, after a terrible night’s sleep last night. I’m a little anxious about tonight! I ended up calling in sick this morning, my sleep was so shot. Anyways, I threw my whole sample of this into a mug and I’ve also eaten a whole block of chocolate. Now I’m gonna take some sleeping tablets and make it to work tomorrow just fine!
I didn’t realize this one was a herbal blend until I made it. For some reason I was thinking it would be a white or a green blend.
This one is ok. The dry tea is quite artificial and it does have the alcohol type smell to it. The brewed tea does have some pistachio flavour. There is a creamy flavour and feel to the liquor. I am getting some nuttiness, but it is almost like the nut flavour it bitter or astringent (almost like a nut that has gone bad).
This one is ok. I am definitely tasting the chamomile in the blend and I would prefer not to.
This was a random add on to a DavidsTea purchase from a while ago. I’m going through my cupboard and trying more teas I haven’t had in a while. When I opened the package I was surprised by how little of a pistachio/nutty sent there is. When it steeps the mulberry leaves really open up. This is a very mellow tea but I like it when I’m in the mood. I don’t get a lot of the pistachio flavor and you definitely need to like mulberry in order to enjoy this tea.
Today I opened my mailbox to find many new teas to sample courtesy of VariaTEA! Thanks, VaraiTEA!
This is the first that I am trying. This is definitely creamy! I get pistachio more on the aftertaste. It almost tastes like a mint herbal tea if you took out the mint. It has a similar base taste. Adding sugar brings out the pistachio in the aftertaste. This is interesting and I like it, but not enough to buy a huge 1lb closeout bag which is the only size they had on the David’s website. Really glad I got to try it tho since I was so curious.
