drank Candy Cane Crush by DAVIDsTEA

I had a bag of this at my sister’s but decided I should change what I have at her place and bring home all the teas that would be best iced or as a latte. That’s because she doesn’t have a milk frother at her place and no ice maker so teas that require those things are best to keep at home. At her place, I’ll have teas I drink plain.

Anyways, now that this is back in my cupboard, you can be sure I whipped up another chocolate milk latte and it is still amazing.

I made this as a chocolate milk latte last night after I had such success with Candy Cane Crush. When I brewed it up then, I ran short of chocolate milk and just decided to use more concentrated tea. So, it ended up tasting watered down and I assumed it was due to my portions. However, I made it this morning again and despite using my more typical milk to tea ratio, this still seems to be on the thin side. It’s lacking the real pop of mint that Candy Cane Crush had and I think the lack of white chocolate is detracting from the chocolate flavor. So, though it is not bad perse, it is truly disappointing. I think I prefer this as a latte made with regular milk.

So 50 grams made for 2 chocolate milk lattes and though it didn’t last long, it was totally worth it because this is ah.may.zing latte! So creamy and minty and chocolatey and great.

I enjoyed this and so did Gizmo however it’s close enough in taste to Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait that id probably just drink that. Plus this has a stevia quality at the end that I don’t like.

Chocolate milk latte and it tastes like a liquid Laura Secord French Mint.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
