Taster’s Review:

This tea is a yummy treat, and while it does have a certain dessert-like taste to it, it is one that would be equally as nice to have as a quick pick-me-up in the afternoon or as something to get you through the doldrums that hit just before lunch!

The base of the tea is light-to-medium bodied, with a sweet, fresh green tea taste and a hint of roasted nut flavor that is very complementary to the sweet caramel-y flavor.  I can also taste subtle notes of buttery taste – I don’t know if this is from the caramel or from the green tea – but it certainly adds to the YUM factor.

The overall cup is sweet and crisp, and while it does have a certain comforting appeal to it, it is also rather invigorating!   I am loving this tea!

Because this tea has a very autumn-y kind of feel to it, I prefer it served hot.  It doesn’t need any additions because it’s delightful as is.  It might even be alright iced too, but to be honest, I finished it up so fast that by the time it would have cooled to judge it on its merits cold – it was all gone!  This would be a delightful accompaniment to a tray of fruit (fresh apple slices, perhaps?)

What a pleasant way to spend the afternoon!   YUM!
