Halloween is the one time of year you can act like a kid again and no one can say anything about it. Seriously. No tricks. Just treats in the form of this light, buttery and delicious kettle corn blend. Inspired by caramel candy-coated popcorn, Trick or Treat is like a carnival in your mouth. Round up your taste buds. They’re about to go on a sweet ride that tastes just as good as the real thing. Oh, and take the lil’ ones with you, this tea’s caffeine-free!

Introducing Trick or Treat!

This is our second new Halloween tea this year, along with Witchy Watermelon. If Witchy Watermelon was meant to be a divergent flavour from the usual Halloween go-tos then Trick or Treat is sort of the opposite: classic and nostalgically Halloween in its flavour direction! Additionally, I really like to think of this tea as the spiritual successor to Caramel Corn – a fan favourite that gets requested quite a bit. They’re not identical, but absolutely have some similarities and my hope is that fans of Caramel Corn will love this tea as much as they did that one. Why caramel popcorn for Halloween? Well, it’s perfect for all those Halloween movie marathons that happen every year!

In terms of taste, I find this pretty straight forward. It’s definitely that caramel popcorn kind of vibe with the distinct gooey caramel notes and buttery flavours you would expect. In particular I really love the balance of the just-so-slightly salty buttery popcorn with the rich creamy caramel. Not nearly as salty as Salted Caramel Oolong, but still justtttttt a little bit in that vein to help balance the richness.

…and, it is a rich tea! Inclusions like licorice root add to that natural sweetness while also adding this mouth coating sensation that makes the blend feel richer in mouthfeel as well. I personally have a STRONG aversion to the taste of licorice root, so that’s the one element of this blend that prevents me from getting super into it – however I really appreciate what it adds to the composition, and I love getting to play around with all different types of functional sweeteners as ingredients – especially when it means leaving out stevia. So you win some and you lose some. The anti-stevia crowd will hopefully appreciate its absence here and while it’s maybe a loss for those, like me, who dislike licorice root… well, we have plenty of other alternatives out there.

My recommendation would be to try this as an iced latte or hot latte. It reaallllyyyy comes together when you add milk to it, and the inclusion of dragonfruit makes it steep up a beautiful pink shade similar to how Forever Nuts looks when you latte it. Just make sure you actually get a dragonfruit piece in your measured out leaf though; it won’t taste different if you’re missing one (since the dragonfruit doesn’t add taste) but the colour will be more of a light yellow instead of the fun pink. I suppose you could call that the “trick” part of Trick or Treat.

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.
