Sipdown! (19 | 149)
This was in my subscription box for January/February! I didn’t order any of the teas from Deb’s brunch collection, as I didn’t know which ones would be in the box and I’m trying not to buy tea anyway. It turned out to be this tea and Cereal Milk (yay!). I may have to order the Banana French Toast once it’s restocked, just because BANANA!
Anyway! It’s pretty good. I do think it does a good job of capturing both pancakes and caramel. There’s a strong maple note plus the graininess of the toasted rice, which together do remind me of pancakes with butter and syrup. But I do also get some darker, caramelly notes (plus the butter helps there as well).
Overall, it’s good, but I feel like the added ingredients to tea ratio is too high, as I don’t get much from the black tea. And because of that, it just ends up tasting very thin. So because of that, I don’t think I’d order this one. It was fun to try though!
