A new tea – from the iced latte collection!
Now, this is the epitome of nostalgia – and I think something I actually haven’t seen done in tea form before!? Which is interesting, but it’s actually really rare now that a tea comes out that I haven’t seen some variation of from another company. I will say that this is actually my least favourite of the collection, but I am fascinated with the concept of it and think it’s a brilliantly novel idea that really delivers on the concept.
This is really best enjoyed as an iced latte; I’ve had it just plain iced and hot and as a hot latte and you just have to go iced – it’s the best way to get the intended feeling. Steep it long – the longer the better, as this does sometimes come out a bit thin tasting. Then top up with iced and milk and, well, damn! It tastes spookily, eerily accurate to the sweet, rich milk left in the bottom of the bowl after eating Frosted Flakes!! It’s brilliant, it’s nostalgic – and hell, Cereal Milk tea!? It’s also bloody trendy. Like, I’ve had more than one cereal milk flavoured chocolate bar in the last year; and this is a deadpan for the concept!
Now why is it my least favourite of the collection!? Well, what is cereal milk? Basically just sugary milk – and while I think this takes it up just a notch by having a little bit of a creamier marshmallow/vanilla element, it does taste very much just like sugary milk. Is that bad? No! But it’s not something that I would necessarily want lots of for at all; but it’s a damn experience and SO bloody nostalgic. For me, this is the the tea I get when I’m at a mall with a DT and I want something to drink while shopping. Like, it’s instagramable, fun, kind of buzz worthy, and accurate – but not the thing I drink daily. Does that make sense? It’s one of those “Look – they fucking DID IT!” moments where a concept is just so perfectly captured…
Also, gluten free cereal and vegan marshmallows!! So, that’s cool and inclusive! Love that element of the tea!
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
