Yep, this is very satisfyingly Butter Pecan-like! …and there’s also a hint of something vaguely like brandy? Like flambe’d sugared pecans. It’s a good, warming and comforting flavor.
Basically (and obviously), this is butter pecan ice cream re-invented as hot tea! The black tea base is strong too—has a good “kick”. Kind of malty, kind of toasty. Complements the sweet, nutty, vanilla flavors.
I love butter pecan ice cream and this is a good homage to it.
