5 Tasting Notes
I got a small pack of this, and now I wish I had ordered a bigger batch because it’s almost gone. I drink my tea with a splash of light soy milk and splenda. The taste of this tea brings me right back to childhood when I used to drink Nestle strawberry-flavored milk. So yummy! This tea tastes like a special treat!
I don’t care for this tea. I couldn’t really taste the vanilla and citrus mentioned in the description here. If you love the flavor of cloves, you will love this tea.
I’m sure this is considered a great quality tea, especially considering the hefty price I paid for it, but It’s a little too heavy on the spice for me. And, like the others, there was a vague cola flavor somewhere in there, and I’m not a fan of cola.

I had my first trip to Teavana today and couldn’t resist this one based on the amazing smell—sweet and nutty and cinnamony. Add the name—nuts and brulee (as in creme brulee), and I was sold.
As it was steeping, the smell reminded me of a my favorite Yankee Candle they no longer make, called Carrot Cake—the most delicious smell! The taste is just what I imagine a nut-flavored creme brulee would taste. Just delicious!
I steeped it a second time, and it was still good, but the cardamom and cinnamon flavors overpowered the former creamy flavor of the first steep.

I don’t generally like green tea all that much, but I visited Teavana for the first time today and it smelled so intoxicatingly yummy that I had to try it. It’s beautiful to look at, chunky with bits of fruits and bright orange carrot!
It definitely smells like caramel, both dry and steeped. I taste the apple more than the apricots and raisins, but the caramel flavor comes through. It’s smooth and sweet and creamy, just like I like my teas. I think the company’s description of “dessert in a cup” is a good description. There’s an unusual sweet tartness to this tea—I know that probably doesn’t make sense, but that’s the only way I can explain it.
I’m on the second steep, and it’s still quite good, though the flavors are more delicate this time around. I can smell and taste the apricot more with the second steeping.
