Thank you Cavocorax for the share. I believe I have had this before and I like it more than I thought I would but I don’t know if it effectively captures Dean and Castiel. It’s a little smokey so that covers the hunter vibe but there isn’t a ton more going on in the cup. Mostly is smooth and sweet but doesn’t really have a strong flavor of any of the three types of tea. I’m not really sure what to make of it.
I thought I grabbed the Pancake Breakfast tea so imagine my surprise when I got a mouthful of banana bread. After doing a check of the package, turns out I grabbed this one. Nothing new to say about it. Just another cup of hot buttered banana bread deliciousness. This tea is wonderfully true to its title. Gotta love it :)
This tea mixes the flavors perfectly as each element can be tasted on its own while simultaneously blending so harmoniously as to create a lovely tea. The base is mild leaving plenty of room for the other flavors to shine. There is a sweetness from the berries that contrasts quite well the the more savory notes of lavender and peppercorn. The lavender is definitely the standout in the mix, which for me isn’t a positive, but for those that like these flavors, I can see this being rather enjoyable. This reminds me of a spa tea which is guess is a good thing coming from a company called “My Beauty Tea”. So, what all this boils down to is that this is a lovely tea, just not flavors I personally look for so my sample is more than enough.
Lupicia knows how to do chestnut flavor well. This perfectly captures the nut while having an additional richness which could be chocolate, though could also just round out the chestnut flavor. It’s interesting but tbh I’m not a huge lover of chestnuts so this cup is enough to leave me satisfied.
I set up a cold brew this morning when I made the hot cup and I am enjoying it now as I watch Mad Max. I gotta say, the sweet floral of this cup is a stark contrast to the gritty and raw film. Both are rather enjoyable though.
I find this tea to be amazingly consistent – no matter it’s age or brew style, it tastes almost the same everytime. This may be the tiniest bit more floral than the hot tea but not significantly so (honestly it could just be because I expect a difference). All in all, just a great, consistent tea that I really will miss when it is gone.
