2224 Tasting Notes
This is yet another apple cinnamon tea and though the apple in this is fresh, bright, and true-to-the-fruit, I just find that this is a flavor combination I have had a hundred times before. It’s good but nothing is all that unique about this cup. Nonetheless, thank you MissB for the opportunity to try yet another new tea.
The taste of this one is familiar but I can’t put my finger on what it reminds me of. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s chocolate. Instead I am picking up a more yeasty or barleyish flavor. Oh, it sorta reminds me of a burnt chocolate babka. It’s not something I’ll be seeking out again but it was fun to try so thank you for the share MissB!!
So I’m just going to start off by saying that this tea smells Ah-mazing. The praline scent is so rich and decadent that it makes for a pretty mouth-watering experience. Luckily, the creamy nuttiness does transfer over to the taste making for an almost caramel-like flavor. Underneath it all, is a sweetness that is more apple than pear for me and though that is disappointing, the tea as a whole is still pretty great.
So I have had this cold brewed, iced, in a chocolate bar, and now hot. So far the taste has been consistent to the fruit with the exception of this hot cup which is a little bit weaker in lime and a little bit stronger in hibiscus (not too strong as it only shows up at the end of the sip but it’s still a tad noticeable whereas in others it was not). It’s nice but I don’t love lime enough to stock this anytime soon.
I took a small sample of this from Kittenna’s bag to try and though the praline is amazing, the base is a touch too brisk for my tastes. Still, I can see this being loved by many and I am enjoying the nutty caramel notes in this cup quite a bit. Thank you Kittenna for the chance to try this tea.
