Disclaimer: I am a tea newbie.
I had my first trip to Teavana today and couldn’t resist this one based on the amazing smell—sweet and nutty and cinnamony. Add the name—nuts and brulee (as in creme brulee), and I was sold.
As it was steeping, the smell reminded me of a my favorite Yankee Candle they no longer make, called Carrot Cake—the most delicious smell! The taste is just what I imagine a nut-flavored creme brulee would taste. Just delicious!
I steeped it a second time, and it was still good, but the cardamom and cinnamon flavors overpowered the former creamy flavor of the first steep.
