A Jasmine Creme Brulee Delight! #DAVIDsTea

I have tried one other creme brûlée tea before, and while it was yummy, I think I prefer this one. This blend by DAVIDsTEA includes apples, rosehips, and jasmine green tea! I actually really like the addition of Jasmine because I think it gives a nice, refreshing twist to classic creme brûlée flavor.

The smell of the dry leaf on this one reminded me of DAVIDsTEA’s caramel corn, I think it was because of the sweet/buttery scent of creme brûlée flavor and the apple pieces. I couldn’t detect the scent of jasmine in the dry leaf, but could smell it once the tea was steeped but just ever so faintly. It was very lightly floral and the jasmine was very much in the background. I could really smell the apple pieces and the buttery/caramel sweetness of creme brulee.

On taste, I think this tea was really on point. It tasted buttery, sweet, and lightly floral. The apple was there, but really just added a hint of fruit flavor and was not tart or overpowering. The buttery custard flavor was there in the aftertaste and really resembled creme brulee, for me. I know that a lot of people may be a little scared of this blend because of jasmine if they don’t like floral, but trust me when I say that this tea is not overwhelmingly floral. It is so slight and really just a hint and it blends really well with the apple and buttery custard flavors. I actually enjoyed this green tea version of creme brûlée better than the black tea creme brûlée blend I tried from a different company. I like how this one was made lighter by the green tea and the addition of jasmine and apple pieces definitely gave it a nice twist.

Overall I would say that this blend was very “springtime”. It was light, sweet, and comforting. I’A Jasmine Creme Brulee Delight! #DAVIDsTeam wondering if it would be good iced, but I think that hot is the way to go with this one.

Hi, my name is Sophia. I am a first time mother to a beautiful little girl who will be 1 in July 2017. I spend my days at home with her and when I get a minute to myself, I usually spend that time making, drinking, or researching tea! My love for loose leaf tea is relatively new. When I was pregnant with my daughter, my mother (a tea addict herself) brought me to DAVIDsTEA. I enjoyed a cup of their Coconut Cream Pie Oolong and was instantly hooked! Since then, my addiction has grown to fill entire cabinets, and shows no sign of stopping.

I am the creator of the Facebook group CommuniTEA where we have one big tea discussion. It is a great group for those new to the tea-world. I feel strongly about spreading the joy of loose leaf tea. I like making instructional videos and helping those that are new to the art of tea-making so that they, too, can share in the happiness that tea brings. I am excited to see where this hobby takes me and I will continue to spread the joy!

    This is my favorite tea ever!!! I have always been a fan of Davids Tea, but once I tried this tea I was hooked! I have tried it in a latte, a cold tea, and hot. My favorite was when I tried it in a latte. Then recently the Davids Tea in my location retired it and I was quite disappointed. Oh well, because I have just discovered Crème Caramel Rooibos. And let me tell you that i am quite satisfied.

      Yemaya- I was not a fan of creme caramel rooibos! And I have never tried a green tea in a latte (besides matcha), I find it interesting that it tasted good! I wouldn’t have thought Jasmine flower and milk would taste good haha. But if you like creme brulee, check out Simpson and Vail (they have a black tea flavored like creme brulee) and Adagio has a fall seasonal tea called Autumn Mist Green- which has a delicious creme brulee flavor to it. Some other teas from DAVIDs that I have enjoyed are Forever Nuts, Banana Nut Bread, and their fall seasonal tea that is out right now- Smore’s Chai! And if you like rooibos, check out Fava Tea’s Roasted Almond Chai Rooibos- it is my all time favorite 🙂 Fava also has a bunch of seasonal teas out right now that I just ordered.
