Sampled this today, thanks to the traveling tea box! I realized as I was brewing it that I had no idea how long to steep it so I quickly got online and saw all of the 2 & 3 minute brewing times in the reviews. I was already at 4 minutes at that point, so I was worried I had oversteeped by a landslide, but honestly I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. The tea is a beautiful golden yellow colour, with a sugary, slightly caramel scent (that reminds me of the Creme Caramel blend by The Tea Spot). The taste is sweet with a vegetal aftertaste, but honestly I don’t get a blatant caramel flavour from it… it’s much more subtle. Overall, very pleasant and light. This would make a great afternoon or dessert tea in my opinion. I might just put this on my shopping list for future purchase (once I pare down my collection a little bit… I have way too much tea at this point)!

Bio

I’m a 41-year-old vegetarian zen witch who is obsessed with tea, music, beer, psychology (and many other things)! I really dislike herbal teas and will mostly only drink black with the occasional green and white mixed in from time to time. I have two huge cabinets full of tea that I will probably never be able to use up—it’s a constant battle to keep myself from buying more! Every time I travel, I come home with a bunch of new teas to try. I don’t post on here as often since I’m really trying to keep my collection in check and haven’t been trying as many new blends as I once did.
