After my delicious experience with the Coconut Pouchong, I had high hopes for this one.

The dry leaf smelled amazing. It reminded me of the crust of a creme brûlée, one of my favorite desserts. After brewing, the tea seemed less like toasty caramel and more like roasty oolong with a hint of caramel in the background. I wanted a stronger caramel flavor than I got and the oolong was a bit darker than I preferred, but it was still pretty good. There’s definitely a nectary sweetness and roast flavor. I wouldn’t necessarily want this again, but it was enjoyable.

When you hear “sugar” and “caramel” you expect something like Sugar Daddies—but this is awfully light.

After trick or treating, I would divide my candy into piles. The Awesome pile was savored slowly and the Eww pile was nibbled on with distaste or given away. The Sugar Daddies went into the Eww pile. :) So I guess I’m saying that I’m glad this didn’t taste like Sugar Daddies. haha

But I do agree the the flavor is light. It could have been so good!

I totally agree, I was expecting something much more like a dessert tea with the name…

As long as they keep making the Coconut Pouchong, they’ll still be awesome in my eyes. That tea makes up for all.

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
