This isn’t the first time I’ve tried this tea, I’ve tasted and reviewed it previously. And my adoration of this tea hasn’t changed since I wrote that review, but I do think a tea this good deserves another round of praise.
This tea reminds me so much of pecan pie. The nutty flavor from the pecans and walnuts and the sweet white chocolate flavor combined with the naturally delicious flavor of the black tea somehow magically meld into a very pecan pie like flavor. All that’s really missing is the pastry … and that is something that can be remedied easily by eating some tasty shortbread cookies along with this tea.
But even without the shortbread cookies, this tea is truly delightful … perhaps even more delightful than a pecan pie, because as much as I do enjoy pecan pie, I find that even with my very demanding sweet tooth pecan pie can be a little too cloying sometimes. And the sunflower petals offer just the right hint of sharpness that cuts through that sweetness … it isn’t TOO sharp, but, it’s just right, you know?
This is a delightful autumnal tea, delicious any time of day. I prefer it hot, but, it is also quite nice iced too. Pleasantly sweet without any sweetener added!
