Day five

First impression of tea: “Oh my God.” Embarrassingly enough, I actually said that aloud upon opening the packet.

Second impression of tea: “Marry me.” This relationship escalated quickly.

The nutmeg and cloves form a softly spiced black crust before sliding into a creamy sweet caramel center finish. The caramel outshines the subtle pumpkin notes. The astringency is mild. I liked it best lukewarm with milk. Aftertaste was buttery cream, which gives me an impression of cheesecake without really tasting anything like it.

I think I should place another order at the 52teas website.

That is all.

This is so good, I’ve already placed an order to guarantee that it’s around for a while.. This advent is the first time I’ve ever tried any of Frank’s blends. I was honestly skeptical until this point, but this tea has unquestionably won my heart. And my nose. And my tongue. :)

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.
