It’s hard to believe we’re already at the point of the year where Halloween teas have been released but, welp, here we are. This is one of two new Halloween blends that DT has put out this year – personally, my favourite of the two.

As I think most people on Steepster know by now, Halloween is my personal favourite holiday – and typically I go prreeetttyyyy all out in my Halloween celebrations. As such, I’ve tasted A LOT of different Halloween inspired teas over the years – many just okay and many that were absolutely mind blowing. With all that in mind, I really wanted to challenge myself when thinking about the kind of Halloween inspired tea that I would want to make. I wanted a flavour that I had never seen before in a Halloween tea, but I also know that the “vibe” is just so incredibly important when it comes to holiday themed blends – Halloween in particular. So if I was going to take a stab at an ‘unusual’ Halloween flavour I knew I would need (pun intended) “infuse” it with some Halloween spirit.

So. Witchy Watermelon…

The taste is pretty straight forward for this one, and that’s definitely the point. Picture watermelon candies in a Jolly Rancher style and you’ll be pretty spot on with how this steeps. It’s juicy, sweet, very coating on the palate. I figured that it was actually kind of weird how few Halloween blends tend to have this level of fruity flavour given that fruity candies are typically handed out when trick or treating prettttyyyyy equally to things like chocolate bars and caramel sweets – which are way over represented in Halloween inspired tea blends. So why couldn’t watermelon be a Halloween flavour!? Plus, it’s good but it’s also sooooo good iced/cold brewed and I love a good versatile tea blend.

To keep it grounded in that Halloween vibe, I played around with the visual of the blend quite a lot. Purple sweet potato is an ingredient that DT has used a couple times now with blends like Maui Madness and Pink Papayadise because of it’s beautiful colour, and so this blend is just PACKED with purple sweet potato. This gives it a lovely pinky purple colour when steeped but, as importantly (if not more so), it means the dry leaf of the tea is SUPER purple looking. That alone wouldn’t necessarily make this Halloween themed, but with the addition of these gorgeous orange witch hat Sprinkles it creates this very contrasting orange and purple dry leaf visual that just screams old school/traditional Halloween colours. Plus, y’know, witches.

I’m excited to see what people think of this tea and if the balance of unconventional Halloween flavours with old school Halloween vibes has the same payoff for them that is does for me!

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.
