I kind of lost track of my steep brewing up a little pot of this as my night tea tonight, so I hope I didn’t turn it astringent. If it is… totally my fault!
The dry leaf smells very nutty, and I can’t help but feel like Plum Deluxe has laid heavy on the nutty flavors for quite a few days in a row now… brewed up, I’m finally getting some cinnamon presenting in the aroma, reminding me of cinnamon covered almonds from the Farmer’s Market (man I love those!)
It tastes pretty smooth (phew), very nutty, with a subtle hint of sweet cinnamon and vanilla. I’m not picking out much from the base tea itself under the flavorings, aside from a general breadiness. It’s a pleasant cup, like a nutty bread with a light dusting of cinnamon; maybe just a tiny bit drying after the sip, and a slight bitterness like biting into dry nuts.
I like it, but I think I’m ready for a new flavor profile!
Flavors: Bread, Cinnamon, Nutty, Smooth, Vanilla
