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.
So as far as I can tell, this tea is pretty much identical to The Tea Spot’s “White Wedding Tea”. Which is pretty much what I was hoping for when I ordered it, so yay? Anyway, it’s quite lovely: light and sweet and caramel-y (from the chestnut flavouring). The jasmine flowers are there, but I don’t really perceive any jasmine flavour. It’s yummy.
Since I was on a roll with Chaud Les Marrons, I thought I’d give this other chestnut-flavoured tea a go. It was savoury like before, but the base was a tad more vegetal this time.
I’m still kind of bemused by the fact that the last time I tried this, it tasted like pretzels. Tongues. They’re weird and interesting. shrug
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.
