First of all, I’d like to thank Stacy for this marvelous tea. My very first order just reached my doorstop this afternoon, and perfect timing I must say, as I got completely drenched walking home without an umbrella, so bringing in the box and whipping up a a cup of this tea was muchly needed.
Also, I made pumpkin pecan pie for the first time ever last night, and this tea reminds me of the fresh, decadent pecans I generously added on top.
The second I opened the pouch, the wonderful aroma of candied pecans wafted throughout the air. The oolong is a perfect match with these two flavours because it’s buttery and not astringent at all. Perfect pairing with nutty flavours.
Steeped, I’m truly getting the comforting scent of both maple and pecan from the mug. It’s toasty, sweet, and smooth.
The flavour is exactly what I wanted this to be: comforting, distinct, but not heavy, addition of maple topped off with a cloud of toasty pecans. I’m drinking this plain, it’s so good.
This is what I’ve been looking for in a flavoured tea. Something with obvious additional flavours yet not too overwhelmingly sweet.
