Day 22 of the 2016 advent calendar! When this tea came out I REALLY wanted to try it but I was on a self-imposed tea ban so getting this in the calendar was a nice alternative. I can see just on inspection the lovely caramel bits, and the aroma is lovely and toffee-like too.

When steeped, the Pu’erh base starts to come through a lot more, making me a bit skeptical of trying this. The tea tastes better than my initial offputting by the Pu’erh, and it does well at being an ‘English toffee’ tea. I think that this tea would be perfect as a tea latte, and is decent with milk and sugar.

Overall, I am pleased with this tea, but there is that lingering note of Pu’erh in the background which does knock this tea down a peg or two for me. If I get this in a collection I’d be happy to drink it, but I might reach for other hot dessert teas before this one.
