Before I get started on this tea, I have to make a quick note: Fava Tea has REALLY GREAT customer service. I ordered a bunch of samples, and later received a SEPARATE HANDWRITTEN NOTE thanking me for my order and asking me if I had any questions.
I cannot recall that EVER happening to me in my LIFE.
So already: soft spot in the heart.
This blend, called Dasher’s Delight, doesn’t really have any Christmas-related inclusions, so I’m not sure why it’s branded in such a way. They could easily market this one as “nutty sugar cookie” year-round. In addition to green tea, this blend includes caramel, hazelnut brittle, almonds, and walnuts.
I like this one as an afternoon mellow-out tea. I don’t think it has the punch for a morning brew, but it’s perfect for that 3pm slump when you’re cranky and you want five candy bars and a soda the side of your head. This gives you some sweet and some caffeine without all the catastrophic health drawbacks of my lesser vices. I wish there was a little MORE to it, even in the afternoon, but it’s still a sweet brew that’s worth a try!
Here’s the scoop!
