drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA
6 tasting notes

This is one of my favorite teas. It is permanently inside my cupboard because it’s a cup full of memories and awesomeness. Toasted Walnut was, I think, my first flavored loose leaf tea. It was also the first tea I’ve ever purchased with my own money! I usually depend on my allowance (cough). Anyhow, now that I’m a ‘grown up’ and earning ‘grown up’ money I get to purchase little treasures. Along with Pumpkin Chai, they’ve been through with my low lows and my highest highs. They’re my pick-me-up teas so you can sense that I’m quite attached to them.

Toasted walnut is fabulous when it’s hot and just as divine when it’s ice cold. Adding a splash of sweetness enhances its down-to-earth tones. I do admit I have a sweet tooth but I don’t mind having it straight – it’s almost as great. You can definitely taste the walnut when it’s cold just an FYI. Generally, it is nutty, coconut-y, and smooth. It does get bitter when over-steeped. Nonetheless, it’s a great tea and I’m getting borderline biased. Or maybe I already am…

Bio

I may be a fairy, or a pink unicorn or whatever you want me to be.

I am open minded at most parts but not enough to explore the veggies (laughs). I am a carnivore that loves fruits and drinks tea. I was introduced very early to the world of tea but never fully got interested until the beginning of 2013. I frequent David’s Tea – it’s the most accessible. I drink my tea whilst browsing through the world of fashion, arts and illustration; playing video games (PS3 & PC); reading books and mangas; watching Disney and Miyazaki films, and anime; gushing over how awesome the Green brothers are — all of which I regularly do on the daily meaning every hour is tea time!

Born in the Philippines, grew up in America, and recently moved to Canada, I have yet to explore more of the world.
