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.

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.
