In continuing my habit of reviewing teas long after they are available, I bring you a DAVIDsTEA White Chocolate Frost from the Winter Collection (check out my haul of it here). I wasn’t planning to drink this one after I finished up Santa’s Secret, but a comment from Jenn about DAVIDsTEA White Chocolate Frost being a better (but non-caffeinated) version of Santa’s Secret meant I had to bump it up and try it next. Because I have what one might almost consider too much tea (one would be incorrect) I am trying to focus on finishing up a fewer of my older ones, so it was time to delve into my stash of DAVIDsTEA White Chocolate Frost what see what it was like. However, I will say my lateness at putting together these posts greatly impacts my ability to borrow the appropriate stock photography from the DAVIDsTEA website. I should probably take my own tea photos but at the moment I’m still limiting that to tea I get for review. But back to DAVIDsTEA White Chocolate Frost, which is a minty but slightly sweet tea with ingredients including peppermint, white chocolate, pink peppercorns, stevia and flavourings (natural and artificial).
Like most herbal teas, one of the things I appreciate about DAVIDsTEA White Chocolate Frost is the fact that it is difficult to overbrew and still tastes good no matter what. However, I actually find it quite different from Santa’s Secret, as the mint is a lot more obvious and it is less sweet. Perhaps because there is no black tea to round it out, but I mainly get the taste of peppermint with a hint of spice from the peppercorns and sweet creaminess from the chocolate. I don’t actually like mint tea, so I find DAVIDsTEA White Chocolate Frost too heavy on the peppermint to be something I really love but if you are looking for a minty, creamy, wintery tea this is definitely worth trying out if it returns this year.
