This is the other tea from my Yunomi order. It was the next flavor I wanted to try after tasting and liking Creha’s grape-flavored black tea. I love these cute little tins! Each flavor has its own unique art on the front. The tea itself is extremely dark brown, almost black, and the stems have a lovely red hue. Mm, it smells so good! Creamy and rich, like that chestnut cream spread/filling that you can buy in jars or tubes. I also smell a touch of chocolate and vanilla.
The aroma of the steeped tea reminds me of good vanilla extract – creamy and sweet with a strong wood note. This tea has an amazingly creamy texture and flavor. The chestnut flavor reminds me of sweet pastries filled with cream and chestnut paste, possibly topped with sliced almonds. The base tea itself is quite mild, somewhat woody with a touch of musty hay. There’s a touch of mild bitterness near the end of the sip, but I think that’s actually a good thing, it helps cut through all the richness in the flavoring. This would be fantastic with milk and sugar or as a latte.
