As it is now after midnight, I decided to have something without caffeine. I don’t know that the caffeine in tea really affects me all that much with sleeping when I’m tired … but, I don’t like to push it too much. And besides, I have enough caffeine-free tisanes in my stash to keep me busy.
I’ve been eager to try this. YUM! When it’s piping hot, I find that the flavors are a little disjointed, like a deconstructed custard-filled maple long john rather than a very obvious taste. It’s not like “Oh, this is a maple donut” – it’s more like “I taste maple and cream and pastry and honeybush.” But after it cools for about five minutes, the flavors really come together and it becomes the custard-filled maple long john I’ve been craving since Frank announced this blend. Once it’s cold (In other words, the stuff that had cooled in my breville teapot as I was sipping on the hot cup), it tastes quite good too … the flavors actually seem to taste better once its cold BUT I prefer it hot because there’s just something very comforting about a hot cup of Custard-filled Maple Long John.
As I have been typing this as well as my full-length review for the SororiTea Sisters blog, I find myself wondering if Frank called it Custard-Filled Maple Long John because it’s a lot of characters to type.
