I don’t know how it does it, but this actually smells and tastes like custard. Sweet, creamy, eggy custard with stewed apple and raisins. It’s a lot stronger in the scent of the dry leaf than in the tea itself, but it’s still unmistakeably present in the scent of the brewed liquor and up front in the sip. It’s replaced as the dominant note mid-sip by apple, and then the creamy custard creeps back in and takes over again slowly, lingering for a while afterwards. I don’t taste any chamomile (by no means a complaint) but there wasn’t much in my teaspoon so that’s unsurprising. A pinch of sugar makes this really decadent. If I had one complaint, I would like the tea to have a stronger flavour overall, but that could be fixed by adding more leaf. This came from a DAVIDsTEA advent calendar though, so I unfortunately don’t have enough to experiment with that. It’s definitely one I would consider buying more of if I had the option.
