When I was little, my grandparents used to always take my brother and I to IHOP. My grandpa would get pancakes with strawberries, and would always convince me to look somewhere else then put one on my plate. That’s what this tea reminds me of.
I can taste every flavor in here, which is so cool. I wasn’t expecting this to work as well as I imagined it could be. But it’s all there, pancake, butter, syrup, strawberry. It even kind of tastes like the strawberry syrup the strawberries typically come soaked in so that your pancakes get even more of the flavor.
I do get a bit of that chapstick taste that Mercuryhime mentioned, but as it’s cooled it’s gone away. That’s kind of what it smelled like at first too, but after I took a sip I forgot about it.
I think with just a bit of something sweet, maybe even some real maple syrup, this could be really awesome. I’ll give it a try at home!
