So a friend let me borrow a bag of this (actually, it is loose leaf, but her sisters put her together a cute giftbox and they made homemade bags with coffee filters) and I highly enjoyed it!
Smell: Earl Grey, but I could definitely smell the vanilla!
Taste: Very, very creamy, the vanilla came out so well, and the usual Earl Grey flavoring was very smooth and delicious. A touch of milk kicked up the creamy factor. All in all, I really liked this tea, and it was a sweet treat. :-)
Note: I’m not sure on the proper instructions for prepping this tea, because it was fashioned into the bags, and since they were thick, the best water temp was WAAAY hot and I had to keep pressing against the bag for a while to get the tea to steep fully. So these are my instructions based on the way mine was made. :-)
I’ve had this tea twice now, and finally am able to sit down and review it. I am also pleased to announce this is my first loose tea, and I am very happy with it. It is true, I must say—loose tea tastes so much better.
This tea I think is meant to be a holiday tea, and the title “nutcracker sweet” definitely fits. It’s a very spicy blend with cinnamon notes and other spices, mixed in a smooth black tea.
Sweeten to taste, though it won’t need much, and maybe some cream will make it even better! :-)
