A loving homage to Turkish coffee, this cardamom-spiked white tea could become your new obsession. Blended with energizing black tea, coffee beans and a dollop of cream, it manages to be both smooth and refreshing, rich yet surprisingly light. A sweet and satisfying dessert-like tea that’ll seduce you from the first sip.
How it tastes:
Rich, creamy coffee flavours mingle perfectly with fresh notes of aromatic cardamom
What makes it great:

Not much to say, it is a tea that taste like coffee with a sweet bitterness with a touch of sweet malt and that is slightly sour. Taste too much like coffee, I can’t distinguish the black and white tea in it - The price is too high for that one. However, I will revisit this one with different parameters it may taste better, will see. WATER USED: Nestle Pure Life

I really enjoyed this one, although I wish the coffee flavor would pop a little bit more. I didn’t think I’d like cardamom, but I’m learning I actually do. I got this on sale from David’s tea, anything with coffee beans is a go to for me. I think I would purchase this again.

This is an odd duck but any coffee-tea hybrid is.
The white tea is an interesting choice, but I- can- detect that barky taste I associate with white teas so it’s not lost under all that cardamom and coffee. It’s light and tastes just as good warm as it does when you’ve left it on the counter for an hour and go back to it, but I’d like to try it again with some cream too.
Yeah. In my absence from Steepster I went hard onto coffee for a while, and hard into cream into coffee & tea. O.O (But not always! I wouldn’t do it to a premium black tea or anything like that!)
Tricky review, this one.
First off, it’s a white chai. I’m a new convert to white chai’s, where my partner decided all he drinks is white tea. So, I had to figure out a way to combine my love of chai with something he’d drink.
This fits the bill…. sort of.
I mean, there’s ALSO black tea in here, and then…. big crescendo… there’s also COFFEE.
C’mon tea lovers. It’s a macchiato.
Still, I’m all… what?! Tea AND coffee. Sacriledge!
Next up in the melange of weirdness? It has an odd assortment of ingredients. Apple was the strangest for me (I’m not sure how it fits, other than perhaps as a natural sweetener), although the rosehips also made me go… hmmm.
Now I really want to try it.
Yep, yep, yep.
First cup was straight tea, nothing added, no sweetener.
All I can say is… this tea surprised me.
It DOES taste like a macchiato. It’s definitely cardamom-heavy (bring it, I love cardamom), and I can also taste the coffee. The black tea gives it a bit of depth, and then the apple sweetens things up so I really don’t need sweetener. Although, I’m definitely adding some the next steep. Just to be sure. ;)
First cup, second steep was surprisingly similar, with some added Krisda (stevia + erythritol mix). I still craved the creaminess of a macchiato.
Darn that’s hard to spell correctly. Macchiato.
Second cup, I added heavy cream + Krisda.
OMG. This is goooooood. Like I could drink this all day and still gulp it down in one sip, gooooood.
I think, perhaps, for me…. this reminds me of a coffee my former inlaws used to make every morning. They’d grab their locally-roasted beans, grind them up with some cardamom, and then brew their coffee.
This tea, drink, whatever you want to call it at this point (it’s a bit of everything, isn’t it?) reminds me of that feeling, that moment, that….. ah….
It’s a hit for me, and a surprising one. I didn’t think I’d like this so much that I’d want to buy more.
I mean, I drink TEA people, not coffee…

f I could, I would do this at a much lower temperature, but all I have access to at this coworking space is instant boiling water. Ah, first world problems.

It’s been a rough couple of weeks so I decided to treat myself to a little shopping trip to Davidstea while I was in the neighborhood. I ended up getting the matcha miso soup tea for the coming cold nights, but this cardamom macchiato blend was one of the samples. Honestly it’s delicious and I would have bought some on the spot except that it has coffee and black tea in it, neither of which my stomach tolerates particularly well. But the creamy coffee flavor is dead on and the cardamom adds a gentle spiciness. I am a little skeptical of DT’s claim that this is a low-caffeine tea given the ingredients, but other than that I would totally recommend it.

Got a sample of this in my recent DT order. I could not resist their new fox collection! Anyway this is a decent blend, I feel the white tea was an odd choice as a base though since the flavors in this one are strong so I don’t really taste the leaves at all. It reminds me a lot of the cardamom french toast blend with a little coffee aftertaste. It was an okay cup but I don’t know what it is there is always a weird sweet aftertaste for me when it comes to some of DT blends. It probably would do better as a latte but alas I only had the one sample oh well…
I had to stop by a retail store last week to pick up some tins (including the cute seal tin), and I grabbed something o drink while I was there too because that’s kind of just what you do. I had been craving this tea literally all day but I don’t own any of it so it was a great chance for me to get it and satisfy that craving. I had it as a latte, and it was really satisfying. Not for the coffee notes, mind you. Though, coffee and steamed milk obvious does go together very nicely and anything coffee usually works well as a latte. No, it was the cardamom that I was DEEPLY craving – that spice is so comforting and cozy, with a nice natural sweetness to it.
Still don’t love this enough to buy it – but I love being able to so easily scratch that cravings itch.
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 regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
