This was the fall tea I was really excited to try, but kind of worried based on less than stellar reviews so far. It smells amazing. Like advertised, it smells like spice cake and the smell is complex. It actually reminded me of those Christmas decoration stores…must be the clove and cinnamon. Honestly, someone should totally make a candle that smells like this tea!

Unfortunately, the taste of this tea does not deliver what the smell promises. It is much more muted. As it cooled, I got more of a custard-like feel/taste, which was probably accentuated by the splash of soy milk I added. So, more like a spiced custard, than a spice cake. Overall, I’m not blown away, but it’s pretty good. I think the flavors are more winter-like though, so I might enjoy it more closer to that season.

Darn, I was hoping this one would do better. That’s why I’m scared to order the mugs I want online, because the smallest amount you can buy online is 50g, whereas if I take the time to head out to the store I can purchase a much less risky amount.

Ya, I’d recommend a store trip.

Bio

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
