First Impressions

I snagged a pouch of Unicorn Dream for one reason or another, it comes in a sealed, unsealed silver pouch with a bright yellow label. While yes, this is a fruit infusion and much more better suited for a spring or summer day, I’m drinking it in January because…. why not? The aroma of Unicorn Dream is sweet, lightly fruity with coconut and lemongrass. It’s really quite pretty to look at – what with the beautiful florals in the blend.

Unicorn Dream consists of: apple, hibiscus blossoms, coconut, lemongrass, artificial cotton candy flavouring, marshmallows, bean peel, heart sprinkles, candied pineapple, unicorn sprinkles, sugar pearls, butterfly pea flowers, candied papaya, mallow blossoms, dwarf everlast blossoms, rose, raspberries, sunflower blossoms, and stevia extract. The sprinkles are really fun though – hearts and unicorns – and the unicorns in particular are cute.


DavidsTea recommends steeping Unicorn Dream in 95°C (200°F) for 5 plus minutes. I opted to do an initial steep for 7 minutes.

First Taste

Unicorn Dream steeps to a nice purple colour. The aroma reminds me of cotton candy, and flowers. The taste is an interesting mix of sweet, fruity, coconut, lemongrass, and cotton candy. It has a fun colour, and because of the ingredients, it’s really quite sweet – almost too sweet. I find it has a slight aftertaste from the stevia that is noticeable when the tisane is hot (pouring it over ice helps temper that aftertaste though).

A Second Cup?

I attempted to resteep Unicorn Dream, but it didn’t stand up to being resteeped with poor flavour the second steep. I would recommend steeping Unicorn Dream just the once.

My Overall Impression

I liked DavidsTea’s Unicorn Dream. The sweetness and flavour of Unicorn Dream is fun, fruity, and has some fun cotton candy goodness in it. I would highly recommend this one as iced instead of hot, because the flavours just go better as an iced drink instead (plus, it helps with that obvious stevia taste…). The colour though, is fun, and I think if you have kids who like seeing colour change (hello, butterfly pea flowers) when you add citrus, it’ll be neat for them to see.
