Another crepe tea from AQ2T! I’m so on board the crepe train; I want to see all the crepe teas! In fact, I’d be so here for an entire crepes collection:
Peach and Custard Crepes topped with Icing Sugar White Tea
Cinnamon Poached Pear Crepes Rooibos/Honeybush Tea
Crepes Slathered in Maple Syrup Oolong Tea
Lets make it happen, Lauren!
I kind of clocked Lauren’s last crepe tea (the chocolate hazelnut one) for not really having an element that reminded me strongly of crepes and just sort of tasting like Nutella – but this one definitely really brings home that pastry component. It does remind me a little more of Stroopwaffles than it does crepes though, and I’m having a really hard time describing what it is that so distinctly differentiates those two profiles for me and why this is the former rather than the later. It simply just is. As for the rest of it, I thought the strawberry was a little mild; I wanted more of a sugary strawberry compote OR overripe sliced strawberry taste and I didn’t feel I distinctly got either. The cilantro was fine though! I was scarred by it initially because, while I’m not really in the camp of people who find cilantro tastes like soap, I don’t really enjoy the taste in large concentration. I thought that there was just enough for me to taste it in the blend though without it overwhelming the whole thing. Very good proportions! Pleasant tea overall; not without cons but also had some very nice pros too.
I just want more crepe teas!
