Classic base, default flavor.
This is lovely, but I honestly wish the flavor was stronger. I probably made this wrong – I just whisked a teaspoon of the match into a mug of heated almond milk – so if anyone has any suggestions on how to prepare this that would be awesome.
This is sweet, creamy, but I’m not getting the burnt sugar caramel flavor that I associate with creme brulee.
Also, I need to get a sifter. I whisked it fairly well but there are still some small lumps and those are bitter.
ETA: Okay, 1 teaspoon was too much. I had to toss the mug when I got about halfway done because it was too bitter.
This is a creamy earl grey, just as advertised. It’s tasty but I wasn’t blown away, however, as I was expecting to be considering I know someone who loves this. I keep meaning to order some of New Mexico Tea Company’s Earl Grey Cream, which people seem to love too, because one can never have too much earl grey.
Maybe I’m expecting too much from these extra flavored earl greys.
Wow. I don’t know how they managed it but the caramel in this tea is nearly spot on. I’ve tried a number of caramel teas trying to find one that approximated caramel enough for my taste, and this is it. Yum. The caramel is there, but it is not overly sweet. It’s absolutely lovely.
I’ve been on the hunt for a pear tea. This smelled divine when I opened the pouch. The taste, however, leaves a bit to be desired. There is pear, but it doesn’t taste natural and definitely leans towards the perfume side of things. It’s still drinkable, and somewhat enjoyable. Just not what I was looking for. Maybe it would be better iced?
