Butter Pecan + Ice Cream = Very Bad
Butter Pecan + Tea = Very, Very Good
I’m not a fan of butter pecan, but apparently that’s because I haven’t had it in tea before. This is a great dessert tea and not nearly as heavy and syrupy tasting as I would have expected. The tea has a fair amount of astringency, but I think that helps keep it from being overly sweet tasting. The butter pecan flavor is fairly strong, but it doesn’t taste artificial. This would probably make a really great breakfast tea as well. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
I’m not much of a green tea drinker and I’ve never had houjicha before, so this tea was a bit of an experience for me. It definitely had a toasty flavor, which I am not normally a big fan of. The caramel flavor is a bit subtle for me, I prefer the flavors in my tea to be strong. I did enjoy this tea, but it isn’t something I would normally drink. Thank you Rachel for sending me this one to sample! Prepared with stevia.
I finally figured out what this tea needed – salt. I like my teas sweetened, but every time I added sweetener to this, it just got sickeningly sweet. Adding half a pinch of salt to this really helped bring out the flavor. I’m really enjoying drinking it this way. Prepared with almond milk, stevia, and salt.
This is a great coconut tea! I’m not sure whether I’m tasting pie, but that’s okay. The coconut flavor tastes more like toasted coconut versus the fresh coconut flavor found in tropical drinks. This holds up very well to milk and sweetener. Even steeping extra strong, I didn’t detect any bitterness. Prepared with lots of almond milk and stevia.
Pretty much perfect in every way! The almond flavor comes across as strong, sweet amaretto. The coconut and vanilla flavors are not as strong as the almond, but are still very noticeable. Even brewed strong, I don’t get any bitterness with this tea. This one definitely helped perk me up this morning. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.
