I was a little hesitant about this one, until I smelled it. I enjoy pecan desserts (like pecan pie and sugar/cinnamon-coated pecans), but I don’t necessarily love pecans just by themselves. The name of this tea interested me at first, then I decided against it because I was afraid it would be too much like the true pecan nut flavor. Right before checking out I came back to this tea and opened the bag for a smell and I was hooked (on the aroma at least). I steeped a cup this morning for breakfast in case I didn’t like it and I could make something else instead. Luckily I was very pleased with it! It has more of a sweet-dessert like flavor (although faint, not too strong) as opposed to the strong purely nut flavor that I was hesitantly anticipating. There are little chips of maybe white chocolate? in the dry leaves that I think add to the sweet flavor of the tea. Maybe not one that I would reach for every day, but one that would be a pleasant treat every once in a while.

-Dry blend has large tea leaves with yellow petals, pieces of pecan and small white chocolate chips.
-Dry leaves smell like caramel and pecans. Tea liquor aroma is like pecan pie.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark brown color.
-Pecan nut flavor with a lightly sweet and nutty finish.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. Nice authentic pecan flavor.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
