So I stopped by my favourite Paré store at lunch today (the staff there is always amazing!), and had them brew me a cup of this wonderful tea.
First whiff was very light (so was the brew in colour, light white golden). There is a smooth, soft, creamy scent, that gently grazes your olfactory senses, and not far off from its taste. A few sips of this gentle indulgent tea and the feeling of familiarity starts to swarm.
I added a pump of agave to heighten the flavours, and as I sipped on this golden water for the early part of the afternoon, that familiarity hit me – Werther’s Original Caramels. I haven’t had those sweet treats since in years (read: eons)!! And now the taste was coming back to me.
This tea is definitely no where as sweet as those sugar laden treats, in fact it’s not sweet at all (unless you add some agave) but it does carry the same smooth, soft, creamy essence. Those are the best three words that can be used to describe it.
This is a great tea for when that afternoon sweet tooth kicks in. Or after dinner when you are avoiding desserts. It stirs in you such a wonderful feeling of cozy comfort. yum.
