Yet another tea I had forgotten I had. Actually, thought I was out of it. Nope, I’m not! I have almost half a tin left. Yay!
Because it has been a while since I’ve had it and it is possible my tastes have changed some since the last time I had it (in July), I’m going to treat this like a new tea.
First off, the sprinkles are fun. I’m easily distracted by shiny and sprinkles are close enough to bring me great joy. As it is brewing, I get a big time vanilla icing smell. Mmm. Icing. Normally I’d add a sugar and a splash of milk to my flavored/dessert teas (seems to me to help the flavors show up and be, you know, dessert-y) but I am milk-less today. Boo.
Mmm, this is good though. Sweet (yay sprinkles!) and tastes pretty similar to how it smells. It’s not exactly a well developed tea or anything. No peppery notes or sweet hay tail or hints of raisins. It’s a vanilla cupcake tea. Correction: it’s a GOOD vanilla cupcake tea. But dessert teas have their place in my pantry and I think this is probably in my top 5.
