I’ve been waiting to try this one all week. Finally had some time to brew it up and really appreciate the taste. I was very impressed with Pancake Breakfast, so I jumped at the chance to get this one.
The smell of the dry tea, has that slight rubbing alcohol smell that some of 52 teas have. But I can smell cinnamon and sugar as well.
The brewed tea tastes like cinnamon and dark brown sugar. It definitely gets better as it cools. As it gets cooler there is more of a pastry/bread type flavour, with cinnamon and the dark brown sugar. On my second cup I added a few pieces of rock sugar. The rock sugar brought out more of a syrup type taste. It also made the second cup of tea taste a lot thicker and creamier. I thought this tea tasted best when it was at a luke-warm temperature. Overall, I tasted cinnamon, dark brown sugar, light bread flavour, all on top of a black tea base. There is a light butter syrup flavour in the aftertaste.
I think I prefer pancake breakfast, but this one was also delicious.
