I wasn’t sure about this one when I smelled the leaves…..it smelled a bit sharp so I was hesitant to try it. I brewed a pot because okay……the smell tempered a bit and became more gourmand fruity as it steeped.
I had it with sugar and milk. This tea is wonderful. Truly. I though with the notes it had it would be overly candied and cloying but instead it reminds me of the scent of a fruitcake. The cherry and pineapple with the toffee create a rich sweet aura that is heightened when the sugar is added and it truly feels dessert-like. The orange is a fantastic touch, adding the element of ‘holiday’. It’s the scent of a memory, delicious and the kind of scent that in the moment you can’t quite put your finger on.
I brew teas with scents at a slightly lower temperature for black teas……typically around 195 to 200. I find that this helps boost the scenting of the tea rather than having it dissipate. The ‘flavor’ of this tea was apparent from its hottest state to its coldest. Definitely will be a regular cupboard favorite!
Chocolate, caramel, toffee, cereal..what’s not to love? Pretty sure this is more oolong than black tea, or a blend since it always does much better at lower temps, but i seem to have that figured out. I like the spice/cereal notes in this one that blend with the chocolate and caramel. it’s more bready like than caramel chocolate but it’s still delicious
gosh damn i love this tea. It hit all the right notes today since i managed to not only remember to brew it for longer, but also cooled the temp down a bunch. AMAZING how good tea can be when you don’t mess up the parameters lol. Glad to have tried this one, though not necessarily a repurchase for me since it’s a little fussier than others that i love just as much. today this was more like an 85 haha
I promise a better review once i get back in to the swing of things…maybe after the engagement picture stuff is taken care of. blech. wedding planning is the worst.
simplified review of this one? Oolong that tastes more like a black tea. B&B classify it as a black tea. Cookie, caramel, yum. Glad i picked this one up to try.
