When this first came out back in the fall of 2015, I wasn’t really crazy about this blend, but since it’s came back I gave it another try. I actually really like it now! (Sadly I hear its leaving again) I’m not a big fan of nuts in tea but I’m not hesitant to try them, and more than that, I’m really just enjoying the apricot flavours in this tea. That’s definitely what does it for me. I don’t mind the almond taste behind that, but I really love the apricot.
I also really enjoy this as a latte as well.

In my newly realized quest to have only 40 teas in my possession come Black Friday, I will need to drink seven teas down in that time.
This is an excellent candidate for a work tea, as it was utterly ignored at home, I didn’t really like it, and it needed to get gone. Well, now it has, thank goodness!
One sipdown! Six to go.

The only good thing I can say about this tea is that the caffeine benefits of the mate are nice. Otherwise, the sweetness of it is terribly off-putting. And I like dessert/chocolate/fruity teas. I’ve found the mate sweetness can sometimes just be the wrong kind of sweetness for me. The almond and mate blend into a sickly-sweet flavour. Not much more to say about this one. I tried it a second time a month later and after a few sips decided it made a better offering to my sink. I’ll try to pawn it off on someone that appreciates mates more than I do.

As much as I do love a good 90’s pun, I have to say that the French name for this tea is Abracadabnoix which is so much better.

Due to some horrible, horrible customer service I’ve been sleeping on a mattress on the floor for the last five nights instead of an actual bed. Needless to say, it’s having an impact on my quality of sleep. I’ve been falling back on coffee, sugar cereal, and mate to try and get me through the work day. This tea delivered on the energy boost, without the usual tartness of most mate blends. It’s dry from the nuts, not much apricot, but very tasty. Reminds me of the Toasted Walnut blend from DT that I used to keep in stock on and off.

I love this tea. After so many “meh – it’s fine” teas, it was so nice to drink something that I thoroughly enjoyed. Too bad it’s discontinued.

This was very thick and sweet and a lot of the nut flavor came through for me. I was going to describe it as a cake or muffin, but I see “cookie” in the flavors list, which is also accurate. I don’t know. It’s just … Happy. Like comfort food dessert but in tea form. I want more of this…

But, if it does have Macadamia nuts, I might be in luck with the unopened Mulberry Magic in my cupboard. It feels good to be excited about tea again.

I purchased the box of the autumn collection, as I always do with David’s tea. This one was a miss for me and I ended up giving half of the bad to a friend of mine (the other half was already used when I tried to like it lol)

I’m starting to understand more and more my taste in tea. I don’t like mate, and I don’t like chocolate tea, and I don’t like a lot of ’’dessert’’ tea. I’m a fan of everything sweet in life, I can go through a whole box of chocolate, but I can’t stand too sweet tea. They make me sick and remind me of something putrid. I don’t know why, but unfortunately, I felt like this tea was in a state of decay.

Anyway, the friend I gave it to liked it, so this tea is simply not my cup of tea.

Well fancy that, I’m easy to please today. Especially for tea types that I have qualms with. First an apple tea, and now a mate! I tip my hat to you David’s.
Makes me feel kinda speshal cuz in both my chosen teas today there was some hate on from other tea lovers around here, and yet I like’em!
I really enjoy the dry nuttiness here. It makes me happy. And you can’t really taste much mate which is great as a slow reintroduction for me haha.
Can’t say I noticed any apricot. No sugar added so maybe that would have made a difference?
Other than the smooth nutlike flavour with some mate influence I really don’t notice anything else. Oh well.

Plunkybug

I can’t get much nut, but I get more syrupy apricot.

Indigobloom

really?! odd. Maybe they didn’t mix it well in blending

Plunkybug

Maybe? I have seen others say the same, that the apricot is dominant.

Indigobloom

I suppose its possible I’m confusing the flavour notes. Or maybe they’re blended together

This tea suffers from multiple things. First is the fact that I am not a fan of nut teas, so automatic bias. Second is that this tea can not handle sugar being added; the slightest bit of added sugar makes it sickly gross. Third is a weird undertone of something mysterious and slightly nauseating (could it be the monk fruit?). Bearable enough to finish my 25 grams of it, but would never repurchase.
Part of (and worst of) the DAVID’s TEA Fall 2015 collection.

My order from David’s just arrived! It looks like the company has gone through a few little changes — the box shipped from New York, for one thing, so it got here much faster and that was nice. They’ve topped off all the packets to a full 2 oz. now (which is some consolation for the slight price hike). Also, now you can choose your own samples when you order online! Admittedly, the options are limited, but it still beats crossing my fingers and chanting, “please no rooibos, please no rooibos.”

So I picked out this sample for myself. It smells amazing. The name is a little misleading because I find the apricot to be the strongest flavor in this, but I do definitely taste the almond. The two of them are a great combination, and the only downside is the mate. Just not a mate fan, though at least here the taste of it is pretty light. I’d love to see this tea with a black base, that would be delicious.
