Now that we’re into the holiday swing of things, I…
As you know, the DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea Advent Calendar is long sold out, but lots of the seasonal tea flavours are still available for purchase! So I drank my way through November and some of December to give you my thoughts on these tasty blends. Make sure to check out the other three parts of this series.
Organic Sweet Almond Green
Low caffeine, green
This was one of my faves from last year’s calendars because it has this sticky, sweet almond scent to it that reminds me of marzipan. It has a subtle green floral taste because of the cornflower and is simply stunning paired with sugar cookies.
Ingredients: Green tea, almonds, marigold flowers, cornflower petals. With natural almond flavouring.
Cardamom French Toast
Low caffeine, black
This black tea reminds me a bit of chai because of the mix of spices. It’s perfect with a hint of milk.
Ingredients: Black tea, cinnamon, lemon peel, coriander seeds, cardamom, coconut sugar, cane sugar, natural and artificial flavouring.
No caffeine, fruit infusion
I love this one because it is just straight up dried fruit and spices. If you want something that is fruity yet subtle, grab Spiced Apple (currently sold out online but definitely in stores).
Ingredients: Apple (apple, citric acid), figs, cinnamon, star anise, chicory, cardamom, cloves, black pepper, natural apple and spice flavouring.
Medium caffeine, pu’erh
Ok, well this one isn’t my favourite. It has a bit of an artificial aftertaste, maybe from the caramel? It’s nice but definitely not a top pick for me.
Ingredients: Pu’erh tea, cocoa beans, cocoa husk, caramel (condensed milk, sugar, glucose syrup, butterfat, sorbitol, mono and diglycerides), natural flavouring.
Organic Kashmiri Chai
Low caffeine, green
It’s such a subtle chai that is spicy but has a beautiful green taste to it. Most chai teas I have had are bold and need a bit of milk, but this one is good just on its own.
Ingredients: Green tea, cinnamon, cardamom seeds, ginger, cardamom husk, clove buds, marigold flowers.
Medium caffeine, black
And on Christmas Eve, it’s time for Santa! This is a seasonal fave of mine because it’s minty and bold, plus it has adorable little sugar candy canes! Perfectly paired with presents and stocking hung with care.
Ingredients: Black tea, peppermint, sprinkles (sugar, rice flour, partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oil, corn starch, natural and artificial flavours, cellulose gum, red 40 Lake, mono and diglycerides, carrageenan, titanium dioxide (colour), polysorbate 60.
And once you’ve finished all our teas, you flip the little boxes around for this adorable Winter scene! What do you do with your empty DAVIDsTEA calendar? I am currently using some of the tins to store earrings.
