Day 49 of my 101 days of tea. A leftover from my advent calendar — dumped the entire container into my 2-cupper.

Yummm. Was NOT expecting to like the tea as much as I do. There’s a real buttery aftertaste to this tea, and a little nutty as well. There’s a bit of a bitter or sour note which I’m pretty sure is the cornflowers — not in an oversteeped kind of way, but more… enhansing the flavour.

Tried it with milk the second time while eating a bit of pecan pie — the sweetness definitely enhanses the flavour! That being said, it’s quite nice straight as well.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec
