3187 Tasting Notes
I found some Pumpkin Chai tins on sale in January and had some eggnog lying around so I put them together and the end result was awesome! http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/07/pumpkin-chai-from-davids-tea/
I made the last of this and steeped for a shorter period in a smaller mug I am getting more than just ginger. Still no honey or pancakes but notes of molasses are helping create a gingerbread experience. Actually, I take it back. There is honey in here courtesy of the yunnan base. Pancakes are still a no go but maybe that was trying to do too much with one tea? I am just happy this last cup went better than the last and though I am not sad I am finishing this, I will miss the incredibly pretty leaf.
I like this!! It’s like peppermint marshmallow melting in hot chocolate but without the mint. Awesome velvety chocolate flavor…like a milk chocolate fondue but with a nice punch of vanilla bean to reflect the eclair custard. This is not really the best description and sorry for that but I will say this delivers on the chocolate eclair flavor it promises and that makes it awesome!
Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Cream, Custard, Vanilla
I usually make my tea in my 16 oz mugs but today I have been making smaller mugs today so I can drink more varieties. This is among one of the smaller batches and I am finding the flavors are coming out much better this way. Maybe that’s in my head or maybe it is because I am getting to the teas while they are still hot. Whatever it is, I should do this more often.
This tea is very smooth and creamy but has a nice smokey undertone. The coconut is flavorful but not lotiony so it is making for a creamy/sweet and smoke combination which I am really enjoying.
