Tea Tuesday: New Delhi Delight

Even though there’s an abundance of teas from the new winter and holiday collections from DAVIDsTEA I was planning to review over the next several Tea Tuesday posts, I’ve decided to sway away from that plan for today and review a totally different tea!

It’s still from DAVIDsTEA, but it is no where near being a holiday or winter type of tea. Instead, it’s more of a strange but good tea 😉


For this week’s Tea Tuesday, I will be reviewing New Delhi Delight.

New Delhi Delight is an herbal tea and has been one of the teas I’ve been enjoying a lot lately before I go to bed.

It’s not a popular tea from DAVIDsTEA and is actually no longer even offered, which is too bad because it is actually delicious despite my first thoughts about it…

The ingredients of New Delhi Delight include:

– coriander seeds

– fennel seeds

– cumin seeds

So, essentially, you could make this tea at home yourself, which is why I thought I’d share it with you today! 😀

Although it contains quite the odd ingredients and no actually tea at all, it is one of my favourites! Due to the cumin and coriander, this tea made me think of curry when I first smelled it. However, the fennel seeds add a licorice sort of twist to it. It is very interesting.

When brewed, it is more sweet than savoury due to the fennel. It does not taste like curry. Instead, it’s sweet like licorice with a bit of spiciness, too.

I let this tea steep for a long time; at least 10 minutes, but usually let it steep the whole time it takes me to drink this tea. As many other herbal teas, it just gets better with time.

My favourite way to drink this tea is warm with coconut milk, but it tastes great with almond milk, too.

I also created a recipe using this tea, which I shared a picture of on Instagram yesterday morning. Due to my obsession with chia puddings thanks to Stephanie, all I think about these days is different recipes for chia puddings! Today’s recipe was inspired a little by Stephanie’s Creamy Banana Spice Chia Pudding and a little by Christine’s Sweet Curry Ice Cream, which I’ve had my eye on ever since she posted it.


New Delhi Delight Banana Chia Pudding
Serves 1

1 cup brewed New Delhi Delight tea*
3 T chia seeds
1 small banana, mashed
1 scoop vanilla or unflavoured protein powder, optional

Blend brewed tea, banana, and protein powder until smooth. Add chia seeds. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes, but the longer the better! Serve cold or warm.

*If you do not have New Delhi Delight tea you have two options:

1. Make your own tea by combining 1/2 tsp of each fennel, cumin, and coriander seeds. Place seeds in a tea bag and steep as you would regular tea for at least ten minutes or more, so a strong flavour is made.

2. Use a fennel/licorice tea of your own in replace of New Delhi Delight

Today’s recipe will appear in Laura’s Strange But Good link up on Friday!


What are your thoughts about the New Delhi Delight tea? Would you give it a try? Does today’s recipe appeal to you? Let me know if you try it! 😀

Love always and see you tomorrow with another recipe! 😀

    I’d definitely try it!
    And I’m intrigued by the coconut milk idea…I use coconut milk in my iced coffee all the time (omgsogoodsogood), but have never tried it in hot tea!

    I don’t know if I’d like the tea on it’s own but that recipe looks good!!

    Oh wow that is quite an interesting flavored tea. I wonder what I’d think about it. I tend to go toward sweeter teas but you never know.

    So cool! I bet that did make a wonderful chia pudding. I’m thinking it would be tasty with orange or grapefruit too. 🙂

    You inspired me to make Stephanie’s banana pudding this morning for my breakfast with your breakfast recap which included it.

    I don’t think I’d like this tea just as I really don’t love liquorice. I think it is one of those things that you either love it or hate it.

    OOO that does sound strange… BUT GOOD 🙂 I love Fennel Seeds but I am sad to report that I cannot eat them. They MURDER my stomach! Isn’t that weird consider fennel is suppose to SOOTH the stomach? I am just an ODD case. LOL

    I don’t like fennel at all, so this tea would, well, not be my cup of tea lol! It is available online again, in their website’s Web Special section: http://www.davidstea.com/new-delhi-delight-250g?&TF=27F5948F6518&DEID=
