I’ve been looking forward to this one. This makes my second oolong ever, and I’m very excited to explore this ‘new’ type of tea. :)
Opening the bag, my eyes nearly rolled back into my head, haha. If this isn’t what heaven smells like, then … Yeah, I just can’t. Wow. Words … can’t describe.
Very excitedly scooped some leaf (and nice chunks of actual pecans!!) into my infuser, set the timer, and very impatiently waited.
It was worth the wait. To say it nice and quick: MMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!! OM NOM NOM NOM.
It tastes far far better than I expected. The pecans steeped well with the tea, and the maple is to die for. It almost has a hint of salt in the taste too, sort of like those salted caramel drinks/treats you can purchase in Autumn.
I have to refrain from just guzzling this delicious tea right down so I can start on a second infusion, hehe.
Next order, I’m going to order the base of this, Nilgiri Frost. It tastes delicious with the flavors, and I’m very excited to taste this tea in its natural state as well.
Thanks very much for the delicious, Stacy! :) This tea has made me even more excited to get into oolongs than before!
EDIT: This tea makes an excellent dessert buster! At the first few sips, I was thinking ‘One of those Rocky Road Bars left over from that family reunion thing would go so well with this!’ but as I continued sipping, I felt more than satisfied. While I enjoyed the cup to the last drop, I certainly didn’t feel the need for the rocky road bar any longer. xD
