drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA
733 tasting notes

This is another from my Steepster wishlist that appeared in my Sips by box! Are they spying on me?

Anyway, I’ve been meaning to try this for a long time. The dry leaf sparkles with sugar, which I didn’t recognize at the time. I really need to start reading ingredient lists before I sweeten. Ugh. Along with the unusual addition of sugar, this tea is overwhelmingly cardamom scented. Just POW. So strong! There are both whole pieces and crushed chunks, mixed with a lot of cinnamon chips, lemon peel, and… coriander? That’s new to me. I also think I smell vanilla. This is going to be interesting to say the least.

Upon first sip, the first thing I notice aside from heavy cardamom is a decadent butter note. Creamy French vanilla follows, with notes of syrup. Not maple syrup, more like the American brown sugar kind. Cinnamon is also very up front, making this taste so much like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I didn’t expect to love this, since David’s Teas often come across as artificial and kinda lame to me. But this is a glorious exception.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Butter, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Pancake Syrup, Vanilla

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. Living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, electronic music geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I have officially been here on Steepster for 10 years.

I prefer black teas, and my preferences change with the seasons. I drink my tea iced from April – October and hot during the few cold months.

You can assume that I’m preparing my tea using the Western method. I use stevia or honey as my sweetener. My tea cupboard always contains earl grey, chai, a sleepytime, a dessert, something fruity, an herbal, and a plain black.
