I can’t believe there are no tasting notes for this one yet!
The scent of this tea is just intoxicating, I had to make a cup as soon as I smelled it. It’s like a home-baked apple crumble with a twist. Taking small sips, the pecan note is most prominent, melding with the dark oolong really naturally. It leaves a roasty, nutty aftertaste for quite a while which reminds me quite a lot of my beloved maple pecan oolong, which I got quite excited about. I wonder what this would be like with maple syrup added – I might have to try a touch next time. I feel it would amp up the apple and boozy elements too. As it cooled, and when I had bigger mouthfuls, the taste was spot on Apple and brandy, with a pecan note peeking through. I managed to get two western steeps out of this, but didn’t attempt a third as the second cup was more just an apple oolong, with slight hints of brandy and pecans. Overall, I am very impressed! Another hit from Stacy.
