Thanks to Meghann M, I get to try this delicious-sounding tea!
It smells delicious, too: nutty and sweet. I can smell the cashews as well as the white chocolate. It actually smells like a white chocolate turtle (which is my favorite I’ve-had-a-bad-day-and-need-comfort treat). Like others have said, it brews up rather murky. I assume it’s the dissolved oils from the cashews and white chocolate bits.
It tastes like a white chocolate turtle. Really, it does. Added a smidge of salt (well, more like half a smidge, since adding anything to tea is scary for me) to see if that enhanced the cashew flavor. It did bring out the cashew taste more, and turned the cup into something I could crave.
I’m going to have to ration this sample since it’s not in stock right now (maybe it’ll be back soon?), because I can see this totally becoming one of my go-to teas. I’m also going to do something that I’ve never done before: steep the leaves a second time. Are there any tips for what to do to the leaves between steeps?
