I can’t imagine how they came up with the name for this. It has a very strong caramel (chestnut apparently) cake aroma. I don’t detect any jasmine. I really don’t know if I agree with the white tea base here, all I can taste is caramel cake. It’s good and all, I just prefer complexity in my tea. I’m gonna mix this with a chai next time, or something with orange and cinnamon. Mulling spices maybe? Anyway, caramel cake would be a much better name for this tea.
I almost didn’t buy this tea because it has jasmine in it. The roasted chestnut sounded good, though, so I ordered it.
I’m glad I did. I don’t taste the jasmine, and the chestnut/caramel flavour comes through well. This reminds me of a light version of Toffee Dream by Zen Teas. I think I prefer the weight of Toffee Dream, but this is still pretty good.
This tea smells so amazing when it’s dry – sweet and nutty and caramelly – that I couldn’t resist its charms anymore.
Brewed, the chestnut flavour comes out more, while the caramel flavour holds back and is mainly visible in the aftertaste. I definitely do not taste or smell any jasmine.
I’m astonished that the white tea acts as such a good canvas for these flavours, because I always find white tea so mild, and consider it to be a more natural pairing with fruit flavours.
That said, I think this tea would be even better with some sweetener added. I’m also curious to see how these flavours would work with a black base instead of a white one.
I’ve had this in my cupboard for awhile and have had lots of cups from it. I even ordered more in February so this is definitely one of my favourite teas. An unusual tea to have this early in the morning but I already got a punch from my genmatcha tea. I love the chestnut flavour mixed with the delicate white. There is Jasmine in this but I don’t taste it. Doesn’t matter. It’s still a great brew.
