I bought this tea at the Toronto Tea Festival, since they had gotten third place in the North American Tea Championships, and I wanted an Earl Grey because its one of my favorites. Its one of the best Earl Grey’s I’ve ever had! It tastes really refreshing and I don’t even add milk to it like I normally do.
Drinking some of the amazing samples that yyz was generous enough to send me.
This is a nice caramel nutty tea. It’s a little strange – I actually went and looked it up – this tastes like a rooibos, but it’s not it’s a black. There is something in the flavoring that reminds me of rooibos. Interesting…. I like rooibos, so this isn’t a bad thing for me, but strange how that happened. All and all this is a fun little dessert tea and I am really happy to have had the opportunity to try it.
Having had this tea a couple of times this tea tastes and smells to me of hazelnut caramels with some coffee notes.
The caramel flavour is dominant and it tastes like the kraft caramel squares from halloween, with nutty hazelnut underneath. The hazelnut is pretty authentic those with allergies should stay away as it leaves me with an itchy throat. It brews to a dark red amber. The base tea is sweet and fruity with some spicy slightly leathery notes and subtle bitter coffee like notes underneath and and is smooth if brewed around 90-95. It becomes bitter if steeped at boiling.
The packaging is cute, a tall metal canister with a music box built in. The tune is unfamiliar to me but is pleasant and cheerful!
