I feel like the fall collection came and went so quickly :( But anyways, it is time to welcome the longest, and most painfully cold season of the year. We can work around the cold with these wonderful teas! Enjoy :) Here is the 2013-2014 Winter Collection from DavidsTea
Alpine Punch was my favorite tea of the collection last year, so I’m really happy that it’s back! I’m going to stock up ASAP! It has a beautiful coconut-almond/amaretto combination, with a hint of spice and a slight floral note. Yes it seems to be a bit all-over-the-place, but all these flavors really work together to make this perfectly amazing tea.
Spiced Fig is a new tea this year. I have never had figs in my tea before, and I can sincerely tell you that it’s marvellous! The only spice in here is cloves, and it is very prominent in this tea. The figs (and the other fruits in here) add a lovely sweetness to the cloves. I love this tea so much! It gives me a nice warm and comforting feeling inside, perfect for winter!
Coffee Cake doesn’t necessarily taste like coffee cake, but it does seem like a dessert tea. It is more of a toffee-like or caramel flavor. The black tea base balances everything out, but it makes the tea really bitter if you steep it too long, so be careful with it! This tea also tastes great with milk and/or sweetener; I would strongly suggest it :)
White Chocolate Frost is also a new tea this year. It has a menthol-type aroma. I taste mostly the mint in this tea with a slight hint of a sweet creamy goodness.The key here is not to let it steep for too long or else the flavors will become way too strong, and it will be unpleasant.
Choconut Oolong surprised me at first with its intense, deep chocolate flavour. But then in the aftertaste, there was something very odd that I had never tasted before. I had to ask a few opinions before coming to a consensus that it is a liquorice taste that creates a weird coating at the back of your throat. Personally, I prefer oolong teas where the oolong taste is fairly prominent, and this, unfortunately is not one. I think that if you like liquorice and/or chocolate in your tea, then you will love this :)
Have a lovely, warm and cozy winter everyone!
