Sad, sad day today. Losing my keys cancelled out the joy of receiving my order from American Tea Room, so I decided I needed some sweetness to help out here.
The dry tea smelled delicious, caramel, milk and nutty. Smells promising.
Steeped for 3 minutes as suggested.
The color I must say is a pretty reddish-gold.
The brew smelled a lot lighter than the dry tea, a light sweet smell, not overwhelming.
The tea itself had hints of caramel although very light, more smell than taste (probably because I only had one piece of caramel in the tea to begin with), but not really getting the nuttiness here.
Not at all astringent.
It’s much lighter and a lot less sweeter/dessertier than I expected, but overall an okay tea. Not wowed, but good enough.
