Oh my gosh!
Pecan is probably the top nut I will drink in tea, mainly because lots of Darjeelings have pecan notes. I am also obsessed with maple syrup. And I love oolong. So believe me, I needed this tea.
I’m so sad this is my first cup of tea all day, when I was home, I was passed out LOL I don’t even know why. I had the most extravagant lunch (both in taste and cost, I am pretty sure I spent $20 total on these 3 things) because it had a froyo course (which actually I’ll call breakfast) and a lamb burger, and then a cone of peanut butter banana ice cream. I could have used a cup of tea when I got home, I think!
I am drinking this and trying to decide if I want to pack now, or when I get done with work tomorrow night. The tea says, sit on your bed with me all night instead. It is perfect for me without any sweetener, though I think in the future just to see, a little bit of maple syrup added would be interesting!
This actually does remind me of a Darjeeling oolong because of the citrusy notes in the oolong, and then the pecan. The entire flavor of the tea overall reminds me of a crepe I had in Paris. I couldn’t decide on one, but inevitably chose the crepe Canadienne. It had walnuts instead of pecans, but it tasted just like this. This tea seriously tastes like the crepe down to the crepe!
As it cools off, it tastes more like pecan pie…if pecan pie was made with maple syrup instead of corn syrup. Now that is my kind of pie.
This isn’t a heavily flavored tea, so it’s a perfect sweet treat that didn’t cost me a ton of money and hasn’t turned me into more of a sugar fiend. It’s light but still flavorful, and it’s definitely one of the most interesting flavored oolongs I’ve ever had!
