My lovely friend JustJames sent me a generous sample of this. I had it yesterday and I liked it, however, my allergies were acting up so I decided to give it another chance.
Today the scent is much richer it has the chocolate, butter and apricot tones I smelled yesterday as well as a lovely bready tone that wasn’t there yesterday.
I remember that the name seemed fitting because this smells soothing and warm, just what you need on a brisk, cool day.
Flavour wise it is smooth with apricot, and bready notes up front and cocoa mixing with butter in the background. There is a slight artichoke note as well hidden among the fruit up front. As it cools the apricot becomes more plum like, a honey note and malt become apparent.
This resteeps very well with fruity notes and malt becoming stronger as the cocoa fades. It is good for at least three steeps.
This tea has a nice simple flavour profile which is comforting delicious and suits its name! Thanks James!
