i have had this for a while, but have only just got round to trying it. The scent of the dry tea is very good – mostly black tea, but with hints of buttery vanilla and a slightly nutty note as well. I also like to see the large chunks of pecan in the blend. While steeping, the butter scent really comes out to play. The taste is mostly black tea with hnts of butter. The pecans are most apparent at the end of the sip.
Now the tea is slightly cooled, the pecan butter flavour is much more pronounced. It is a little bitter, though, in spite of my shorter-than-normal steeping time (I sometimes find 52teas black tea blends a little too strong).
I am having my second cup with cream and sugar. It seems fitting, seeing as this is an ice cream flavour. It works very well! The cream really brings out the buttery aspect of this, but it doesn’t overshadow the pecan flavour.
