Cotton Candy from DAVIDsTEA. . . .

So I just have to say, when you’re sweet tooth is crying out for a treat…THIS. TEA. IS. AWESOME!!

DAVIDsTEA offers plenty of dessert flavors from Red Velvet Cake to Birthday Cake to Lime Gelato to Banana Nut Bread and the list goes on and on. They all capture their namesakes to varying degrees though none quite mimic the flavor of their inspiration quite like Cotton Candy.

This tea tastes as if someone just melted down cotton candy in my mug, which in theory should basically taste like someone tossed a bunch of sugar in the cup but this is so much more than that. It’s sweet. It’s sugary. It’s fruity. It’s candy floss.

It is also a pretty versatile tea which makes for a nice hot tea, iced tea, and even a latte. I have even had a few great smoothies using this tea.So, if you want something sweet but don’t want (all) the calories or there is no carnival around, try grabbing a cup of this delectable offering, which I am happy to report is now part of the permanent collection.

Here’s the scoop!

Top of the (Blueberry Lemon) Muffin to You! A Curiositea Blend

Blueberry Lemon Rooibos from Curiositea makes me think of muffins– top of the muffin to you!

The nutty rooibos paired with these fruit flavors remind me of blueberry muffins with lemon peel, or a delectable lemon poppyseed cake.  The lemon of this blend is more creamy than tart, and comes through slightly stronger than the blueberry.

There is a darker sweetness in the undertones of this brew that keeps the lemon from getting too sharp, and I must credit this flavor to the blueberries.
When iced, the flavor combination in this blend could pass for blueberry lemonade rooibos.  There is a perfect balance between deep, sweet blueberries and bright, citrus lemon.

The flavors help keep this blend super smooth and drinkable, even for a rooibos base.  This is a versatile herbal tea and has quickly become a staple in my decaf selections.
