Tea Tuesday: Carnival Teas
This coming weekend is when Yorkton hosts its summer fair. Eddie and I already have plans to go together. I am so excited and I am sure it will bring back memories of when we went to Canada’s Wonderland together this past fall…
Speaking of summer fairs, DAVIDsTEA recently launched a “Carnival Collection” of teas and I’ve tried them all already, so I thought I’d review them for you today!
Caramel Corn is my favourite of the 4 new teas that were released. It’s sweet and salty just like caramel corn and it actually has popcorn in the tea. It sounds strange, but don’t knock it until you try it because, trust me, it is amazing. This tea turns a pink colour when brewed due to the beetroot in the ingredients, so it’s pretty and delicious!
Although this tea is much too sweet for me to enjoy a full cup of it at one time, the Cotton Candy tea tastes exactly like cotton candy. So, if you’re a cotton candy lover (and it seems like there are many of you out there!), this tea is for you! DAVIDsTEA definitely perfected this tea as it truly does taste like liquid cotton candy in a cup! I was very impressed!
Cherry Snowcone was definitely enjoyable, especially when brewed for a very long time to intensify the flavours! It has a tart cherry flavour, which I loved and makes a perfect iced tea on these hot summer days we’ve been having here in London!
A root beer float has a special place in my heart… I remember going to A&W every day after school and having a root beer float with a side of french fries with my Mom, so I was definitely excited to hear they brought root beer float back to stores! When you take a sniff of this tea it smells exactly like a root beer float. It even captures the creaminess. However, since it’s tea brewed in water and not pop mixed with ice cream, it doesn’t have that richness of a real root beer float, but it still is delicious as a tea.
These 4 new teas released by DAVIDsTEA really impressed me, especially Caramel Corn and Cotton Candy. You definitely have to enjoy sweet teas to love these teas, though, and I wouldn’t say that any of them require extra sweetener.
Have you tried any of these teas yet? Which do you or think you would like the best? Do you like real root beer floats?
PS tomorrow I am wanting to share a post about my London “favourites”. If you have any specific questions of my “favourites” of London please leave a comment below asking me! Tomorrow is my last day living in London so I thought this would be a fun post to do!
