It smells like caramel. Yum. The brew alternates between being an earl grey to a dessert tea with caramel sugar flavours. Not exactly cheesecake; more an homage to cheesecake essence. My reviews tend to give way to poetic sentiments when I can’t clearly transcribe what my tongue tastes. Just have to add, I finished the cup over ten minutes ago and my nose is still buried in my mug to inhale the lasting aroma which reminds me of creme brûlée.
