Recent Tasting Notes
This tea was given to me in a storage tin, and so while it had the name of the tea and the tea company on it, it did not have the ingredients, etc. So, I added the tea but had neither a picture or an ingredient list. Sorry the tea information is bare.
The first time I had this, I had no tea and no milk or cream of any kind. That being said, the tea was horrible. Just…let’s not go there.
But, with sugar, and a bit of milk, this tea is a very delicious, yummy cuppa. It has a light pumpkin taste, and then has a similar taste to the crust of a pumpkin pie…it’s not a hugely noticeable flavor, and I can’t quite give it a real name, but this tea definitely has a warm, spicy taste very close to pumpkin pie. It has a creamy, warm mouthfeel, and takes to cream or milk very well.
I’m very pleased with this tea, and when I find an ingredient list (the tea is seasonal, so is no longer listed on the company page) I will give a more thorough tea review. It’s a lovely cuppa, though.
P.S: I used a teapot, and I am not sure on how much water I put in…
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! :-)
