sipdown! a pleasant enough cup to go with my very late breakfast!
I was a little hesitant about this one, until I smelled it. I enjoy pecan desserts (like pecan pie and sugar/cinnamon-coated pecans), but I don’t necessarily love pecans just by themselves. The name of this tea interested me at first, then I decided against it because I was afraid it would be too much like the true pecan nut flavor. Right before checking out I came back to this tea and opened the bag for a smell and I was hooked (on the aroma at least). I steeped a cup this morning for breakfast in case I didn’t like it and I could make something else instead. Luckily I was very pleased with it! It has more of a sweet-dessert like flavor (although faint, not too strong) as opposed to the strong purely nut flavor that I was hesitantly anticipating. There are little chips of maybe white chocolate? in the dry leaves that I think add to the sweet flavor of the tea. Maybe not one that I would reach for every day, but one that would be a pleasant treat every once in a while.
-Dry blend has large tea leaves with yellow petals, pieces of pecan and small white chocolate chips.
-Dry leaves smell like caramel and pecans. Tea liquor aroma is like pecan pie.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark brown color.
-Pecan nut flavor with a lightly sweet and nutty finish.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. Nice authentic pecan flavor.
Thank you Josie Jade for this sample.
Good morning everyone! The sun is shining in the UK today :) I hope the weather stays like this, I shall be going to Brighton on Friday and wont be back on Steepster until Monday. Also HAPPY ST GEORGES DAY!!!
In raw form this tea has visible long, thin pieces of black tea leaves including stem mixed with yellow sunflower petals and small pieces of pecan and white chocolate drops. It has a sweet yet dry nutty scent.
Once steeped this tea is red/brown in colour with a sweet and nutty cocoa aroma.
Flavour is light with gentle earthy elements, a touch of cocoa sweetness and a dry nutty finish. There is also something slightly sour about it too. It reminds me of hazelnut more than pecan. It’s nice and very nutty but for me it lacks depth, perhaps it’s something you would love if you were a nut fanatic. I remember trying something similar from Della Terra but can’t remember which one.. I think it was their white chocolate one that was similar.
