I am going to let this sit a bit longer to meld but so far I enjoyed two steeps of this tea.
It has a nice flavor of marshmallow and in the second steep I got a nice spiciness but I do feel it has room to develop yet.
I am not sure how far in advance Caleb blends his teas before they are shipped but I have a feeling this has yet to come to its full potential.
I will say this however. It is one of the best Sweet Potato Pie blends I have had to date.
TONS of marshmallows, TONS of sweet potato bits, and a good oolong base.
I am so happy I signed up for this subscription!
The only down side which is really not a downside is that the tin is SO air tight I could barely get the lid off. :)
Sweet Potato Pie
Sweet Potato Pie consists of a Taiwanese oolong base with a raisiny sweetness and leafy aroma and taste. The blend is backed up with sweet potato pieces. The starchiness of this tuberous root adds thickness to the mouthfeel of the liquor. Lastly the blend is topped off with dried marshmallow bits which rounds out the blend by tying into the base tea. On first glance this blend may seem a bit odd but the balance and harmony is nicely done and an absolute palate treat.
