I have wanted to try this one for a while and finally got a chance to thanks to a swap with KittyLovesTea. Honestly I’ve been sitting on this one for a while, and am just now getting around to trying it!
The scent of the dry leaf is certainly delectible… it smells like sweet sweet pecan pie. Brewed, the aroma is a little more subdued, lightly nutty and sweet. The flavor is also light, but quite well done. It’s one of those teas that doesn’t hit you over the head with its flavors, but instead suggests them to you, only to have them grow and develop in the aftertaste and over the course of the cup. The first major flavor is authentic maple, which then fades to a lightly fruity, oaky oolong. Then the nutty pecan flavor really blooms in the aftertaste, combined with maple to make the flavor of pecan pie filling.
Quite a tasty tea, and I’m very glad I got the chance to try it.
