This was a most comforting cup first thing in the morning. The pecan pieces are definitely the most prevalent flavor, with the cinnamon chips being more in the aftertaste. I enjoyed the cup, but would’ve liked a more “pie” like flavor, or even an enhancement in the cinnamon department.

Wow. I was extremely pleasantly surprised by this tea. How would ginger and fennel seeds taste like a cookie? Well, it certainly does. It tastes like a snickerdoodle right out of the oven. So, so good. I rarely re-purchase teas anymore, but I will certainly be doing so when I place my next Plum Deluxe order. This is definitely a tea I want to have on hand. I will steep longer next time as well.

Very much a standard peach tea. Not so much the peaches and cream I was expecting. A syrupy stone fruit note, mixed with slight earthiness of the oolong base. Not bad by any means, but somewhat forgettable.

This was another unfortunate miss today for me. The combination of orange and hazelnut came across as somewhat stale tasting. It lacked the richness and complexity I was hoping it would have.

Added half a sugar cube, and a small splash of cream.
I didn’t get a hint of cardamom, which was unfortunate because it’s a flavor I absolutely love. I oddly got a somewhat savory butter aroma and the flavor was a very, very mild vanilla. Not quite the rich, cardamomy vanilla latte I was hoping for.

Wow. This tea is pretty extraordinary, and I’m surprised it doesn’t have a higher rating. The dry aroma is pretty nonexistent for me. However, the flavors are explosive. One cube of raw sugar really set this one over the edge. Rich cherry flavor, combined with luxurious cream. Incredible. I’m currently trying to sip down, but I will be buying 4oz of this one asap.
