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!
