Tried this tea a few months ago iced and didn’t like it very much. I’ll report back when I try it hot, though, since it seems to have gotten many great reviews.
2 Tasting Notes
I’ve been drinking tea my whole life, but have only recently started the loose leaf teas. I never knew there was so much variety! So I apologize for my noobie-ness.
I loved the smell of this tea when dry – so good. I’m actually not a big fan of popcorn-flavored foods, especially Jelly Belly jelly beans. But this tea has got me hooked!
I tried it for the first time in iced tea form without sugar, and it wasn’t super flavorful (but I’m used to having lots of sugar in my tea), but the aftertaste was strong and buttery, with a hint of apple. I just tried it hot with a little sugar and was very pleased that the flavor increased and had the yummy aftertaste.
However, I don’t taste caramel at all (nor does the package say it contains any caramel flavoring) I don’t mind this, but it makes me wonder if I don’t know what caramel corn tastes like (because everyone else seems to taste the caramel x3)
Overall, yummy and cozy tea! Obviously not for everyone, but you should give it a try!
