If you’re a foodie, like me, then you know salted caramel is all the rage right now. Pfft. I caught on to the salty/sweet magic when I was younger and loved to have a chocolate bar with a bag of salt and vinegar chips. Flavour magic!
David’sTea has brought the marriage of salty and sweet to a whole new level with Salted Caramel. This black tea is caramely, without being overly sweet. Then, the salt is there just after you swallow. And I can’t forget to mention how delicious this tea smells. Yum! Good job David!
I give Salted Caramel a 4 out of 5.
Today’s tea is Coco Chai Rooibos. I usually don’t make chai at home, because I prefer it as a latte, and frankly I’m too lazy to mess with warming milk, etc. I like to just pop some tea into a tea ball, fire up the Keurig, and away I go. Today I brewed the Coco Chai Rooibos as is, sipped it, and yup, made it into a latte. It’s delicious! A little watery, but if I had known I was going to make it into a latte, I would have brewed it stronger. This would be a great tea for a cold winter night, if you’re out and about.
I give Coco Chai Rooibos a 3 out of 5.
Today’s tea is a David’s classic that I had actually never tried, Chocolate Rocket. It’s fitting that I had a mate as I was up at 5 am this morning, on my day off! Chocolate Rocket smells wonderful, very chocolatey. I found it a bit weaker than I normally like my teas, but it was still pretty good. Being a mate, it’s supposed to give you energy, but I didn’t find it as effective as David’s Fruite Mate.
I give Chocolate Rocket a 3.5 out of 5.
Rob and I were both stoked when we got the latest David’sTea newsletter, showcasing the advent calendar they released for this holiday season. My dear husband ran right out and bought it for me, much to my delight! It wasn’t until I got looking it over later that I realized I’ve already tried a lot of the teas included, most of them are David’s classics and best loved teas. That’s ok, it’s still. Ice to get a different one every day, try a few new ones, and plus ill have 24 cutesy little cans to use in the craft room afterwards! 😀
The first tea is “Buttered Rum“. If Im not mistaken, i think this black tea was introduced with the winter collection a few years ago and they kept it on as part of the permanent collection because of its popularity (I’m glad they do this with the best teas!). I’ve purchased this tea in the past, I like its warm wintery heartiness. It works great as a hot cocoa alternative on cold winter nights. I don’t consider myself a huge coconut fan, but the coconut in this tea adds a mellowness that rounds it out nicely.
I give Buttered Rum a 4 out of 5. 🙂
