73 Tasting Notes
Had my first cup last night and it was very good!
When I opened the package up the smell made me happy – there was a hint of real pumpkin pie (it was EXACTLY like the ones I made the other day for Thanksgiving), and the cheesecake part is definitely there too.
I steeped this for a few minutes I think, and added milk/bit of sugar. The flavour itself is kind of the same as how it smelled! The pumpkin cheesecake is there, without covering up the black tea. It seemed like the flavours kept changing and some became more pronounced as my cup cooled off – especially that earthiness of the pumpkin, but in a good way.
This is definitely one of the best teas I’ve had in a while!! And it’s so perfect for fall too, which makes me love it even more. It smells like real, fresh, homemade apple pie, (or at least the apple filling part).
The actual taste is the same as how it smells, except the green tea shines through as well. I like how the flavour of the apple & cinnamon is obvious but doesn’t take over everything – these ingredients work really well together. Plus it’s sweet, but the apples are also a bit tart too, which is just like apple pie should taste. It’s like drinking a hot apple cider, but lightened and freshened up by the tea part. I could see alot of my family/friends liking this as well, and I hope it sticks around at Davids because it’s pretty amazing.
Really enjoying this fall collection of teas! I didn’t know what to expect before trying this, and the flavours are unique but definitely good. The ingredients all taste great together – I love how the cinnamon doesn’t really come through much except for the warmth it gives. The orange peel is there but subtle, and these mulberries really do give this a caramel aspect.
This is something I feel like I should always have on hand from now on. It`s so good! I definitely got the creamy vanilla flavours (I added a little bit of milk and sugar), and it worked so well with the Earl Grey base.
The dry smell of this tea is kind of different, (also reminds me of Buttered Rum in a small way) but I would drink this any day.
