Hmm..not quite sure what to think of this one. Definitely not what I was expecting. It’s strange for sure. I’ve been holding off on trying this one since reading Amanda’s note about it. Thai curry flavoured caramel apple tea? No thanks.
After trying it, I can def. get a hint of the curry association. Although I can’t say I’ve had Thai curry very many times anyway. But mostly I just find it perfumey, in a weird way.
I made the mistake of eating one of the caramel chunks from the bag. I couldn’t help it – they looked so yum! But no, they taste like crumbly perfumed caramel ick. Blech. That’ll teach me to pick through my tea for bits :P
Once steeped, it is absolutely gorgeous! It has the same sparkly quality as Glitter & Gold from David’s. I love watching the shimmers swirl around my cup. Ooh and they’re also in some Lush bubble bars! I’m thinking Sunny Side off the top of my head and maybe a Christmas one from last year. Anyway, love the shimmers. They’re mesmerizing!
Unfortunately, this tastes a whole lot like it smells. I’m not really getting a lot of apple, but if I really try I can taste it in the background. I mostly just taste perfumey sweetness, with a hint of that curry-reminiscent something. I don’t hate it, but as a caramel apple tea it’s a bit disappointing. As it cools though, I find myself enjoying it more and more. There’s some odd addictive quality that just won’t let me stop sipping. I can see it maybe growing on me.
