These are some of the oldest teas in my cupboard, other than a few SBTs that I’m saving for the summer. I figured it was time to give another one a chance, given that I’ve been pretty happy with them so far.
This one lives up to its name pretty well. Caramel is the main flavour, followed by vanilla. There are lots of caramel pieces amongst the leaf, so I imagine that accounts for it in part, although it also means there’s a pretty oily texture to the whole thing. I like that the flavours are pretty natural, though, and not overdone in the slightest. It’s a sweet, gentle, and a pleasant cup for a very cold morning.
I wouldn’t say I get cookie from this, as such; there’s nothing at all that makes me think “biscuit”. I’m happy with it, though, so that’s a minor complaint on the whole. It still has a delicious dessert quality, and that’s really all I wanted!
