This is, in my mind, a very “fall-friendly” tea, which is surprising for something without a bit of cinnamon in it. But for some reason, this has a very warm flavor (not just temperature!) that reminds me of fall leaves, making it absolutely perfect on this slightly chilly morning.
Like some of the other tasting notes I see here, I do detect some tasty sweet potato in this, both in the scent and the cup itself. It works really well. I’m also getting a very, very light maltiness, and just the slightest fruity touch (peach? apricot? I’m not really sure). It all combines beautifully, though, to make what is probably one of the best cups of tea I’ve had.
While I mostly prefer my tea unflavored anyway, this is one I wouldn’t even think of adding honey or sugar to; it’s absolutely perfect as it is, and any additions would just ruin it.
