Received this in the secret pumpkin swap from RogersCK.

I am not a huge candy corn fan. I do not dislike, but I would say I do not like it. I am neither here nor there when I think of candy corn. Neutral I guess you would say.

This dry tea smells of 52 teas black tea blends. I find they all have a generic smell.

Brewed this one reminds me of black tea with wild honey. Ashmanra commented in her review this reminds her of Harney and Sons Elyse’s blend and I would agree. This one also has a soft, creamy vanilla and caramel taste to it. I made sure that there was a peice of candy corn in the scoop for this tea. It is sweet from the candy corn. As it starts to cool I would guess the flavour is morphing into a candy corn type flavour (for as much as I remember what candy corn tastes like).

This is a good blend. I would not have picked it up myself, so I am glad I had a chance to try it. I think for myself, I preferred it when it was hot and had more of a honey flavour vs. when it started to cool off.

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.
