My first sip of this tea reminded me of Cinnamon Roll Honeybush. I’m not really surprised, because they do have copious amounts of cinnamon in common, but it was a little unexpected. For some reason, I was expecting French Toast to be more savoury, but there you go.
The main flavours here are cinnamon, brown sugar, and butter. They all come out equally well, and create a smooth, sweet blend with absolutely no astringency. I drank this one straight after Pancake Breakfast, so while I can appreciate the similarities, what I’m mostly detecting are the contrasts. This blend seems a fair bit sweeter to me — possibly it’s the butter/brown sugar flavour combination, which is putting me in mind of cake mixture at the moment. The cinnamon helps to turn this back into French Toast, but the whole thing is far more dessert-like than I was expecting. That might just be my misconception, but I was anticipating a breakfast-type tea, and this doesn’t really fit my criteria for that. It’s nice, and it certainly smells really lovely brewing, but I think on balance I prefer Pancake Breakfast.
