More clearance tea from T2! As someone who lives in NYC, I feel I am obligated to have this tea in my cupboard. And I really like the concept of breakfast flavorings in tea, however, this one is just ehhh. The black tea base is malty and fruity, but somehow doesn’t steep very strong. If have you ever had a third or fourth steep of a (better) tea and realize first thing into the sip that the tea is spent, yet drink the cup of weak tea anyway? That’s how I feel with this on steep number one. I feel like this tea could have some delicious potential if the flavor was punchier.
Not sure why a cinnamon pancake tea would be considered New York, NGL. Maybe for the brunch crowd? Now that’s got me thinking… Honestly, somebody has to make a mimosa green/white tea. That I would wait in an insane line for XD. No really though, pancakes are more of a sit down, Sunday-morning-contemplation-meal than something New Yorkers would have on a regular morning. A better tea to represent our breakfast would be bagel flavored for sure. Although, an everything bagel with cream cheese tea sounds so gross when I say that out loud hahaha…
Honestly, if you really like the sound of a pancake breakfast black tea, go pick some up from 52Teas. It lives up to it’s flavor name and more.
Flavors: Butter, Cinnamon, Pancake Syrup
