Tasting Notes

Sight: The main thing that stands out to me in the loose leaf are the whole, roasted coffee beans. The majority of the mixture seems to be the apple, which adds a caramel colour to the darker browns of the coffee beans and black tea. The ingredients are all on the larger side, so they’re easily identifiable. The tea steeps a yellow colour.

Smell: The loose leaf has a very sweet and decadent smell; probably one of my favorites thus far. It really does smell like a vanilla cappuccino. I feel like I’ve just stepped inside a Starbucks. You’re left with a liquor that gives off a malty, buttery scent, with hints of coffee. I can’t help but think of popcorn. Popcorn and Starbucks. The aroma of this tea is a whole experience, really.

Taste: Vanilla and coffee, no doubt about it. I almost feel as if I don’t even need to add milk because it already has that cappuccino flavour profile by itself. It’s also sweet enough for me to not have to add any more sweetener. I don’t taste any bitterness either.

As someone who likes coffee, but isn’t quite able to drink it black, this tea is perfect for me.
