I was a bit worried when I smelled the leaf. It smelled of caramel and … something funky. Wouldn’t know how to explain it. My worries melted away after I steeped it though. Apparently this tea just has a bit of a funny dry smell! :)

I couldn’t find any steeping instructions on the website, but maybe I was just impatient and didn’t read thoroughly enough. This is already later than I should be having a black tea as it is, so I was in a bit of a hurry to get this going. So I went with the assumption of one teaspoon per 8oz, used boiling water, and steeped for three minutes, which is always safe for a black tea.

Anyway, yum yum~ :D This tastes like caramel popcorn! Makes a great dessert, but I wouldn’t drink this every day. For a sweet tooth day, I’ll definitely be scooping some of this up, putting in a little milk and sipping happily with no guilt.

I am going to adjust parameters for the next cup though. This tastes really good, but I do feel like it’s not at its full potential for delicious. Perhaps I should try a four minute steep. That works well with the Coconut Cream Pie. :)

I’ll enjoy this pouch to the end, but this isn’t a re-order for me. Meanwhile Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish and Coconut Cream Pie I’d have on hand all the time if I could for my dessert cravings. :)

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
