Great before bed tisane! It is really creamy as the description said. Very nice taste I loved it.

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.

Oh my land, this tea is delicious. The fact that it’s caffeine free makes it an awesome tea to drink before bed. Or at school. Or anywhere, to be honest. One of the quickest ways to my heart is to offer me a cup of this. Seriously. Anyone offering? No? Alright, I’ll just drink it all myself.
This is DELICIOUS! The pistachio flavor is strong (and perfect!) and there is definitely a creaminess to the flavor as well (how do they do it?). I steeped the leaves twice and it was delicious both times. I have a feeling that I’m going to end up buying more of this when I finish my sample… As a bonus, the tea is caffeine-free! Almost all of my caffeine-free teas are rooibos or fruit, and I’m not always in the mood for one of those in the evening. I can definitely see myself drinking this regularly in the evenings.
(Sample from silentrequiem. Thanks!)
I wanted to give all the fall teas a go before they disappear for the season, and I finally got around to trying this one. I liked it, but not as much as other nutty blends that I have tried in the past. I also was not aware of the mulberry component until after the fact, and that is not a favoured ingrdient of mine in teas. But I did enjoy the creaminess and, overall, it was a good sample.
I received this tea as a sample from my online order from DAVIDsTEA. I’ve been meaning to try it but never made the commitment.
The pistachio aroma is promising! Steeped, this smells just like pistachio muffins.
This is a very pleasant tea, comforting and simple. I’m not tasting pistachio as much as I am smelling it, however.
I was so Excited to try this tea because its base is mulberry leaves, just like my most favorite tea in the world : Mulberry Magic! The two teas have similar ingredients, so I decided to do a side-by-side taste test to see if I could taste the difference.
And indeed there is a difference. This tea is creamier and the chamomile is very subtle in the background, and that masks the mulberry leaf flavor (a little bit), which is what I like the most. I’m not saying this is a bad tea, it’s great, it really is I enjoyed it so much in fact, I will have to stock up before fall ends!
Very good tea!
Never had a pistachio in my life so I had no idea of what to expect from this tea. Loved it from the first sip!
The taste of the pistachio and even tasting the creaminess makes it a soothing drink to have anytime. Kind of forget about there being chamomile in it. Definitely a restockable tea and ordered a 100g of it. Yummy!
Well… This certainly has been interesting.
Tried a whole bunch of different teas today, reviews to follow. This one, however, simply demanded it be done first. I’m probably going to sound bonkers while I’m at it, but that’s alright. Last time I was at DT and I smelled this, I got nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nothing. Didn’t do it for me. It looked green and wrinkly, and like it would be bitter and green and earthy and disgusting and the sight of it just turned me off altogether.
Today, however… it smelled intriguing. So much so, that we ended up buying a little bag. Hm. Well I guess we’ll try it. Mama Owl stepped it straight, while I opted for a latte-style (don’t ask me why, I just went with my gut). We both steeped, sipped, and wondered. And wondered. And wondered.
Neither of us expected it to taste so GOOD. Ladies and gentleowls, the name of the tea is Pistachio Cream but don’t let it fool you. At first it tasted like warm, melted pistachio ice cream. Crazy? Nope. Gets crazier. We started picking up other notes too, like sugary bubblegum, lollipops, and all the while, pistachio frickin’ ice cream. Thats when it hit us. Of course it tastes like ice cream and candy – its a fall tea. This is the Halloween Candy tea. bells ring
I’ve been so bummed that my favourite (and regrettably seasonal) Copabanana is done for the year, but this owl thinks she found her fall/winter replacement herbal.
Oh and the chamomile? What chamomile! I tasted no chamomile in this tea!
I tried this iced in store and ended up buying 50g due almost entirely to how heavenly the dry leaf smelled. It is quite nice, and like others have mentioned, it was reminiscent of mulberry magic for me too. It’s much thicker though, which I liked. I think this would be divine brewed in some almond milk as well (my favourite way to prepare alpine punch too, by the way!) Going to try that next!
My mom thought this tasted like those instant pistachio pudding packages I used to inhale when I was younger, and she’s right in that it’s quite sweet, but not in a hurt your teeth, tastes like candy kind of way. It’s a more natural and pleasing sweetness.
Overall, I really like this tea. I’m not sure yet if it’s a keeper, but I’ll definitely enjoy the rest of this 50g bag.
