I bought some of this last winter based on the positive steepster reviews. I remember enjoying it, so picked up some more when I was last in the ’hood.
This is a great dessert tea. It really tastes like nougat, those chewy white bars that had stuff in them, that I can remember chewing on as a kid. It is sweet, definite nougat smell and creamy mouth feel. There is also a nice nutty taste here as well. Not much of a black base but nothing disagreeable either, no bitterness. I wish I had some of their creme brûlée to try a combo with – have to remember for next time. I added cream and a little rock sugar, but will skip the sugar in the next cup, I think this one might be naturally sweet enough.
Very clear and cold tonight. I can’t figure out how to turn the pilot light on for my fireplace. Darn it! – would have been a good night for a toasty fire. Ah well, have turned up the heat, snuggled into my fluffy “mr bear” slippers, lit some candles and watching “call the midwife” on Netflix. Will make another cup of this tea, and should be set for a comfy cozy evening.
