Ok, back to this tea! Finally going to do an official tasting note of this one.

Dry – Smells just like a pecan! There are subtle maple notes, but the pecan seems most prominent.
Brewed – The maple comes out a more in the brew, but the pecan is still slightly more prominent. I’d say it’s about 40-60. Smells very good, like a maple pecan baked-good.

Taste: I did add a bit of rock sugar to this one, as I felt it needed some to bring more of the maple out. The initial sip pre-sugar was more pecan-y then I had wanted it to be. After sugar the maple came out to a nice level and the pecan was toned down just a tad. The oolong is also present here, lending a nice oaky, earthy flavor to the whole thing. Thought his is just water and tea (and a tad of sugar), the brew is quite thick feeling. It’s smooth and flavorful. Very interesting tea.

Overall, I think this tea is quite nice. I don’t think I’m too big on pecans, but that’s my fault and not the teas. If you do, however, love pecans, this would be an extremely good one to try. I’ll gladly finish up the rest of my bag. I think this tea succeeds in its mission and stays true to the name.

Bio

Started brewing loose leaf tea about two years ago, so I’m still relatively new to the scene. Excited to share my experiences and learn more from everyone on here!

I’ve found I Prefer:

Oolong Teas
White Teas
Smooth Black Teas
Flavored White Teas
Flavored Black Teas (depending on the base tea)
Flavored Oolong Teas
Pu-erh’s
Certain Herbals/Tisanes

I’ve found I Dislike:

Bitterness/Astringent Teas
Strong Floral Teas
Fruit Tisanes (at least hot)

Green Teas, Matcha, and Rooibos teas tend to be hit or miss with me. I guess it depends on the tea and my mood that day.

That being said, I’ll give anything a shot!

When I’m not brewing/sipping tea, I’m usually reading, listening to music, studying for classes, or in the summer, kayaking/camping/hiking! I also enjoy a good movie now and then. I’ve got quite the collection going. It almost rivals my tea collection! ;)

I’m currently searching for a nice, “non-grassy” tasting green tea that works well cold brewed. If you think you’ve found it, just send me the name/company and I’ll check it out.

Happy steeping!
