826 Tasting Notes
I’ve been drinking this a lot lately, but its starting to feel a little desperate. I am not overtly impressed with Salted Caramel, unfortunatly. I keep thinking that, with the right combo of time, water temprature, teapot, atmosphiric pressure, planet alignment, ancient chanting, and blind luck, and this will turn into the salted caramel candy in a cup I had been so hoping for.
Nope, not this time either.
Excuse me, I need to go find the sacred tea pot of K’a Ixspuchel, which is said to brew the perfect cup of tea every time (except on every second Wednesday), and try again….
I set out on this cup with some trepidation. I love candy corn. Love love love candy corn. Its great. I want it all the time. Nom!
So, a candy corn flavored tea was an unresistable temptation, and I gladly got myself a little packet of it.
Its good! The honey flavor is subtle and sweet, and the additons of actual candy corns is amazing. I’m certainly having a cup of this on Halloween!
I do love the Lupicia newsletter, sending me samples of things that I would never order. I suppose thats the point of the samples.
This is fresh and almost juicy. Readers of my reviews might notice a theme- green tea is not my thing. I try, but its just not what grabs me out there in tea-land.
That said, this is pretty good!
Nom nom nom. Tasty. This is really well balanced. I think theres lemon or orange peel in this, wich is genius! What a good idea! I’ve found that in a lot of savory things, be it tea or actual food, the addition of a little citrus just makes it. It adds a “bright” note into it, which creates a whole new dimention of yum.
The actual pumpkin note is secondary to the pie spice taste, but overall I’m a fan.
Pro tip. BBQ turkey jerky does not pair well with pumpkin tea. Just FYI.
New-ish tea goals.
If I have a tea in my cupboard that has no notes, or I havnt tried it, what exactly is stopping me, eh? Get a move on! You own this tea, drink it!
This….. is chamomile. Its not bad, standard issue. I expected the saffron to add something more to it, but it didnt quite brew up that well. In the box it smells a bit roasty, but I’m not noticing anything special about it in the cup.
Still, I like to have a chamomile in my cupboard at all times.
