Some people call it fairy floss. Others go for spun sugar. We like the classic “cotton candy.” But whatever you want to call it, we can all agree on one thing: it’s seriously delicious and ridiculously fun. And this tea was developed with our favourite carnival treat in mind. It combines nut brittle, candied mango and cotton candy sprinkles with a smooth, sweet base of red rooibos. The result? All the fun and flavour of the real thing, at next to no calories. It’s a carnival in a cup.

I love this SO much. A little cashew milk as an iced latte and you’ve got yourself an incredible treat. It tastes exactly like the name – like cotton candy!

What a yummy tea! Truly does taste like cotton candy. I make mine with almond milk as a hot latte. No sugar required!

I absolutely love this tea iced. It reminds me of real cotton candy and is just the right amount of sweet. I bought 100 g of this tea and have since used it all up. I am really hoping for this one to return in the summer. I have also found that I love this tea as an iced latte. I will definitely repurchase some of this if/when it returns.

I actually really love this tea iced. I was pleasantly surprised by how much it tasted like cotton candy! There was a mild aftertaste of mango but honestly “cotton candy rooibos” pretty much describes the flavor. If you like cotton candy as much as I do you will also probably enjoy this.
It is not good re-steeped more than once though.

Seems like I’m the minority here who’s not a huge fan of this tea. It’s… ok. If I’m going for a sweet rooibos, I’d rather just have David’s Tea Birthday Cake. I tried making it iced and it just tasted really watered down (although that might be my fault. I’m not the best at getting the ratios right for iced tea). Overall reaction: “meh.”

This tea is delicious iced. This is a very sweet blend of I guess mango and green rooibos. Not entirely sure where they get cotton candy from as I don’t think that was mango flavored. I guess they get the cotton candy from the added sugar to this tea. It is sweet and very good iced. I bought their iced tea pack of this when it was on sale for $2.50. So I brewed 64 oz of this overnight in the fridge with one pre measured package of tea. This is tasty enough iced that I would consider a purchase for iced tea purposes. I don’t know how good this would be hot.

I brewed one pre-measured ice tea pack in 64 oz water overnight in the fridge. Don’t know exactly how much tea I even used. It’s whatever they think is correct for a 64oz iced tea pitcher I guess.

I tasted this in store. It defintely tastes like cotton candy. Try the Watermelon one too.


I don’t get to David’s Tea often. The store is not convenient to me, maybe 20 miles away. I ordered this online. Their shipping in the US is good, it originates in Upstate New York, not Canada.

I’m not sure how I feel about this one. I did like it, but I wanted to love it. I just had one sample packet of it to make, and I really wish I had another. I want to try it again to figure out whether I want to buy it or not. Hmmm.

One thing about this tea that some people might be opposed to is that it was pretty murky. Like… it made the water more opaque than see through. That doesn’t bother me, but just a heads up, if this bothers you.


Make an iced tea latte with this one next time-it sure rocked my world and I did not like it too much just brewed with hot tea. I followed DavidsTea directions for an iced latte and added just a bit of agave nectar as a sweetener. It is my liquid dessert lol


That sounds heavenly!

So I went to the store yesterday and they happened to have this tea as one of the TOTD (tea of the day), so I decided to get it as my $1 iced tea. This tea straight tastes pretty good, despite my expectations. I never bothered trying it last year, but since it was so popular, I thought I might as well. It tastes just like the name, cotton candy. It’s sweet without being overly sweet. Actually, this is probably one of the first teas I don’t need any sweetener added to. I could drink it straight. And it would likely be good any way you want to prepare it (hot, latte, iced) Overall I decided to actually buy some, so its winning me over.
