drank Pecan Pie by Steeped About Tea
775 tasting notes

I am not a big fan of dessert teas. To be honest and fair, I have not tried a lot of them. For some reason they just do not seem appetizing to me. I thought I would give this one a try. While hot, just steeped, it tasted mostly like a sweet rooibos. After it started to cool, I could really taste the buttery, nutty, pecan flavour. It does have a distinct sweet pecan pie taste and smell, . I am surprised that I actually sort of like this tea. I think it would taste very good iced. I am still sitting on the fence regarding dessert teas. I think I will have to try more and see what happens.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
