From DAVIDsTEA

Warm up to winter

Say what you will about winter, but it might just be our favourite season. We love getting good and chilly out in the snow. And warming back up with a comforting drink is even more fun. So we created a cool, creamy drink that brings together everything we love about the season. It has peppermint for a burst of freshness. White chocolate for comfort and warmth. And pretty peppercorns just to make you smile. Sweet, comforting and refreshing, it’s a warm hug and a cool winter’s day – all at once.

Ingredients: Peppermint, white chocolate, pink peppercorn, stevia leaf, natural and artificial flavouring

Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet mint with creamy white chocolate notes.

Liquor: Rich brown and somewhat opaque liquor. If short steeped, the colour can be a greenish brown – also lovely.

Flavour: A rich mint flavour tempered and sweetened by the creaminess of white chocolate. Exceptionally rich for an herbal blend and very full flavoured.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 30 sec

Now this one I expected to love, considering my adoration of mint and fondness for white chocolate. Unfortunately it turned my tummy, and does not make me a happy camper. It tastes exactly as you’d expect, the white chocolate comes through VERY strongly with the mint merging fairly smoothly, but for possibly the first time ever it tasted more like toothpaste than mint to me. The chocolate is actually too strong and the cloudy tea with a film on top coupled with the brain confusion of the taste makes my tummy unhappy. I will try again to use up the rest of the sample, but this is not a re-buy.

To be fair, for years chocolate teas made my stomache upset and some of them still do. I thought I was over it but it has started getting worse – Chocolate Chili Chai is RIGHT OUT and this one is almost as bad. Maybe it is the peppercorn and chocolate mix? I dunno, but I wish it were different. I really wanted to like this one!

Maybe I should start listening to my taste buds and stick to unflavoured black tea – but that gives me heartburn when I drink a couple cups a day. Darn you, body!

EDIT: There’s stevia. Of course there is. Stevia makes my tummy angry as well, probably because I don’t tend to sweeten my teas so having them sweetened for me tastes awful. Even blueberry jam which I enjoy can turn me off sometimes from the stevia. Darn you, Davids! You finally relaxed on the coconut, but now you’re mad for stevia!

You know, despite my being ok with chocolate in tea, the smell of this one turned my stomach as well. I got a sample to try at home anyway, but I have my doubts already.

This was the newest seasonal tea I was most excited about, and it is pretty tasty.

The main flavour is overwhelmingly mint, which is fine and dandy. There is a hint of spiciness, which I’m guessing is the peppercorns, and underlying the mint is a creaminess for the white chocolate. The chocolate taste doesn’t come through very strong, it more just contributes to the creaminess. There is definitely an inherent sweetness to this tea all on it’s own.

It’s refreshing with all the mint, and I can see why this is a winter/Christmas tea for sure.

The mint and creaminess came out even more as it cooled, and the resteep is still tasty! More mint than creaminess for the resteep but I’m enjoying it nonetheless.

A soothing evening cup. It’s been a busy week – the start of my second semester of nursing school and our neighbor’s pipes busted during the crazy cold weather and flooded our basement. Our basement now looks like a war zone, and we have super loud dehumidifier fans on and no bathroom vanity or sink or floors. I keep hoping it will be resolved soon, but the neighbor’s insurance adjuster hasn’t even been to look at the damage yet and they’re hinting that it’s our insurance company’s responsibility, so we’re on freeze and can’t really do anything. Not quite the start I anticipated for 2014, but it did lead us to a lot of unexpected remodeling for the whole house.

When I opened the sample packet to take a peek at the dry blend, I saw large green shapes that I couldn’t figure out what it was. Then I realized that the white chocolate had turned green from the peppermint leaves. The tea had a lot of oil on top, which I kind of expected from the chocolate, but it seems like David’s Teas have the worst greasiness to them out of all the teas that I’ve ever had. The taste is pretty good – mostly refreshing peppermint. I couldn’t really notice the chocolate until I added some sweetener and milk, and then it really became a white chocolate creamy drink with a strong cooling peppermint aftertaste. I like this one, and I love that it’s decaf. Definitely a nice caffeine-free option to have in the evening as dessert!

-Dry blend has small chopped green peppermint leaves with pieces of green chocolate and small brown peppercorns.
-Dry leaves smell overwhelmingly of fresh mint. Tea liquor aroma is of peppermint with a touch of sweetness.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy medium yellow color with an oily sheen on top.
-Refreshing mint flavor with a sweet finish. Cooling peppermint and stevia aftertaste that lingers.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A creamy cup with sweet white chocolate and cooling peppermint. Wonderful caffeine-free dessert tea.

I did enjoy this tea. However, it did not enjoy the oil it left in the surface. It was super minty but I think I let it steep too long. Next time, I will have to use a tea bag I guess
I find it is a bit similar to coco mint cream

Day 1 of 24 days of tea So I not so gracefully bolted out of my bedroom this morning and did the hardwood floor skid to my Advent Calendar and proceeded to open Day 1. I’m pretty sure my boyfriend thinks I’m a neanderthal.

Well, this was the tea I wanted to try the most from the Winter Collection and it was the last one I tried.

At first sniff: I smell a peppermint that takes over your nostrils and then a soft sweetness as an after note. I like the smell of it. I keep sniffing it and I do like the smell. Soothing, calming and very wintery.

At first steep: I brewed this at 95C for 4.5 mins. I probably under-leafed it but did that on purpose. Trying to stretch the little tin you get in the Advent Calendar. I pretty much just taste peppermint… not picking up on the chocolate that much. I don’t add milk or sugar to herbal teas as a general rule, so I’m going to drink it straight. It teases you because you smell the sweet of white chocolate but the taste is muted.

I don’t think it’s worthy of purchasing… I may consider it if it goes on sale because it’s nice to have a nice peppermint tea to go to after dinner or before bed.

Edit: As the cup is cooling, I am getting more sweetness and more chocolate taste.

I think I’m going to be living the David’s Advent calender dream through your notes! :)
I recently tried Simpson and Vail’s Cocomint tea and it was a really nice combo of coconut and mint (as the name would suggest). I’d recommend it if you are keeping an eye out for a good herbal mint!

Tuscanteal

Yay!!! Sounds good to me!

I think you should pick up a small bag of this tea. I bought a bag of it, along with an advent calender. It’s a lot more chocolaty flavored from a big bag. It’s one of my new favorite teas.

TTG from Hillside today…I had it in mind to get some Santa’s Secret, but my friend’s daughter opted for this, and in a split decision, I got this instead.

Do I regret it? No.

Do I like it as much as Santa’s Secret? No.

Is it tasty? Yes.

Would I buy more? Maybe.

I’m very picky with my mint teas in winter. To me, mint is cooling and refreshing, and totally makes me think of summer, not winter when it is cold. The reason I like Santa’s Secret is that the mint is more candy cane mint, and somehow it is different to me than regular mint…don’t ask me why or how, as I don’t fully understand it myself.

Now, when I took the bag out of my mug, I did notice the oily sheen on the top that people talk about, and generally dislike. For me, I’m indifferent to it. My guess is that it comes from the chocolate, and it’s worth it for chocolate for me.

That being said, I find the dominant flavour to be the mint, and not much else. I find mint does this a lot.

So far, I don’t think I’ve reacted to the stevia, but my skin is so bonkers right now, I have no idea what is causing it to go haywire and act up. One hopes that the bloodwork today will give answers when the results come in.

So I think this is alright, better than I expected, but not stellar. I may or may not get more of this…if I do, it is mainly because it is caffeine free and another evening option for me. But this or Champagene Cider, and Champagne Cider wins HANDS DOWN.

I received this in a Mystery Swap with Eva. Thank you for sharing.

This was nice and relaxing. I had this straight but this would also be tasty doctored up a bit. I get fresh peppermint, but the chocolate is very much in the background for me. A nice mint tea. Thank you!

For the past couple of days the steepster website has been lagging! I keep getting the “Opps, Someone forgot to turn off the kettle” page. I have so much logging to do!!

I had this last night, I really Adore this tea, but Im finding that if I’m drinking it too much it doesn’t have that peppercorn mint hit that I love. I did have to bump the rating down because it’s not the same since the Holidays is over…lol

Yvonne

Me too on the Steepster lagging bit – feeling a little deprived to be honest!

Abby Noelle

Yes! :( it sucks!

keychange

Funny, I also notice the decrease in peppercorn punch the more I drink this.

Abby Noelle

Yea, the honeymoon taste is over:( haha

I am not a mint tea person, but this is actually good.
Unfortunately, you can taste the mint more than the white chocolate,
but it is good. Quite the refreshing Christmas season tea.
I had it for breakfast this morning. I might order this for a seasonal thing, but I would likely not keep it all year round.
