So, if you love candy corn, this is probably a tea you want to try. Me? This is my first experience with it, and I must admit it’s just too sweet for me. My son has picked out all of the (huge) chunks of candy corn in the brew and is currently sucking on one like a lollipop as I sip this and enjoy it as much as I can. It’s zero fault of Frank – this really is very accurate – it’s just too sweet for my tastes. It does have a thick, honey-like feel to the tea, which surprised me, with a touch of bitterness at the end as it cools. Higher rating because it’s definitely accurate and well-done, it’s just something I’ll pass on to others.
N, my six-year-old: “Mommy, what is your destiny?”
Me: “I’m not sure yet honey”.
N: “MY destiny is candy corn!”
Thanks to Frank at 52Teas for this freebie package with my last order!
I find this tea inherently soothing when I want junk out of my throat or just a nice, relaxing evening where my mouth is surprised with spice. Yes, it’s hot and spicy the longer you brew it (and I think the last batch I ordered was less spicy than this one), and that’s just the way I like it.
I think this is a sipdown, and I’ll pass along the little that’s left. While I do love white teas, and this one is quite sweet and unusual, it’s just not… shazaam POW kinda good, and with it being so rare, I think it’s best to share.
I love the randomizer; this is the tea it spit out on the first try today, and I gladly went to search for it. Definitely chocolate truffle -like, however again, I’m missing anything spicy or chili with this brew. In fact, it tastes remarkably like DAVIDs Chocolate Chili Chai (which happens to be sitting on the other side of my workspace), however I get more cream than anything out of this one, with faint chocolate and vanilla notes.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cream
Well, I can see the chili’s, I just wish I could taste them. Even so, it’s a decadent, thick and very rich tea, although I get more ‘chocolate tea’ than I do even chai. Hm. Still tasty, it’s just… completely different than what Iexpected based on the ingredient list and name.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cream
I grabbed more of this during the holidays, however I’m just cracking the bag now. Yep, it’s a lot like a gooey cinnamon bun, and much more enjoyable than the rooibos TeaGschwendner puts out by the same name. Much more! I did however oversteep this dramatically as I packed up teas to send off, so it’s a bit.. harsh at times. That’s my own darn fault though; I refuse to blame the tea for my oversight. ;)
