Advent Backlog/Sipdown

The aroma was quite lovely, as it reminded me of caramelized yams and cooked pecans. The flavor matches the smell, but there was an added marshmallow flavor. Yum. However, it was too sweet and I wasn’t feeling the Fall tea today. Definitely a good seasonal tea, but not for today.

Flavors: Marshmallow, Pecan, Yams

Backlog – Sipdown!

Tasty, but this dessert tea exists in a state between “satisfies sweet tooth” and “it’s so cloying and rich it’s nauseating!” I also don’t get pie as much as I get candy corn (this isn’t a terrible thing though). However, my mom adored it, and found nothing to criticize — so, maybe the sweetness overload is just me. I’d consider getting more for her, and snag the odd cup that way.

In the bag, this smells strongly like coconut to me, even though that isn’t an ingredient. Steeped, I don’t get that particular aroma, and the tea has more of a marshmallow/vanilla cream scent, with a mingling of spice.

In the flavor, I am not getting “Sweet Potato” but I am definitely getting “Sweet”! Perhaps the base tea is of the yammy variety, but if so, I certainly can’t tell against the total domination of the rock sugar. The base notes are getting washed out for me, becoming more of a muted maltiness beneath a very sweet sip. Marshmallow is one of those flavors I don’t really ever taste in tea, but I think I can kind of see it here… there is definitely a sort of vanilla creaminess that, mixed with the level of sweetness, is tripping my head into marshmallow flavor territory. Toward the end of the sip I get a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg which is quite pleasant.

I’ve prepared this hot and plain as well as a latte, and the latte works a bit better for me since the thickness and creaminess of the added vanilla almond milk combined with the sweetness of the tea feel like a more indulgent coffee house guilty drink. I feel like plain, this is the sort of tea I’d crave most in the evenings, but since it has a black base I have to drink it during the day.

It’s unique. I think I personally would like the black base to pop a bit more, but I do enjoy a good indulgent latte when the mood strikes.

underwhelming. This smells absolutely divine in the bag. I definitely get a bit of sweet potato or squash, but it isn’t over whelming, as well as caramel and cinnamon. The scent is less pronounced when it is steeped, but still there.
Flavor wise, this was underwhelming. Despite steeping for 4 minutes. I found the tea to be rather weak. That said, it didn’t need sugar, or cream, though I did try it with both and it was nice. While I didn’t mind it, I wouldn’t buy it again

I definitely don’t taste sweet potato, but I have to say that this is quite sweet and tasty. It’s mostly fruity, lightly spiced, and a little starchy. I like to add milk. I removed all the marshmallows (there were tons!). The black tea is mild, so this one ends up light, but enjoyable.

Hmm, so I have a pouch of this that I got with a frequent steeper reward. I don’t generally buy DT teas, but I do buy teaware so I always have rewards to use up.

I don’t understand why this has such a high rating. I used a very heaping perfect spoon of tea and it still came out somewhat weak. Happily, it’s not overly sweet from the rock sugar, which I was worried about. I do prefer actual sugar to stevia, but I’d rather have neither. Otherwise it just kind of tastes like a watery coffee cake sort of black tea? I don’t really taste the pecan or anything suggesting sweet potato. Mostly just cinnamon and sweet and a bit of butter/cake flavor.

Going into my rehoming box, as clearly I’m in the minority on this one. :P

IMO- this one really shines as a latte. I find it just okay straight, but making it as a latte takes it to a different level.

That makes sense, sadly I almost never make lattes so I guess it’s not for me, he he. :P

I just got a pouch recently too (around the time you rated this). I drank a little straight and some with oatly. It didn’t really do it for me either way. Or at least it isn’t enjoyable enough to hold on to or continue drinking in the future.

I got a box of this on clearance and I wasn’t sure what to expect – very pleasantly surprised! I added a bit of almond milk and one packet of stevia and it tastes super good. I had my room mate smell it and he pointed out the caramel note! I was primarily tasting marshmallow, but now it’s difficult to miss. This might be a “caramelized” sweet potato flavor. Either way, it’s great!

I love this tea, but this morning’s sachet was very disappointing. It felt way too weak. It was one of those boxes with the prepaid sachets. I guess I just like my tea stronger than what they put in them? I decided to empty all my tea sachets into my bag with the other bit I have so it’s all together and now I can use however much I want.
Anyways, I love this tea and I will keep it in my cupboard if I can.
