It’s Halloween! Time for all the things to go bump in the night come out and play. I’ve always been a huge Halloween fan and love all the scary movies and scary television themed shows. My kiddos and I are especially fond of Halloween Wars on Food Network. We love watching the pumpkin carvers and bakers create amazing spooky scenes.
So the other night while we were watching our Halloween shows, I brewed up a tea pot of this lovely brew. I’m quite a fan of Adagio Signature Blends. Ever once in a while you do end up with a heavy handed blend, but for the most part, they are pretty good and are fun.
This particular blend of different black teas- Candy Apple, Caramel, and Vanilla. Brewed up and allowed to steep for a few minutes, this tea delivers on that sweetness you would expect from a tea named Halloween Caramel Apple.
The caramel and vanilla flavors are what come across the most with that candy apple flavor following behind. The black tea base is a bit heavy but topped off with a bit of cream, that heaviness really mellows out. I almost wish the apple flavoring was a bit stronger but with the dessert like notes, it still works.
A great tea for the spooky night and one we will be brewing up again. I think this time we will top the tea with some whip cream and some pumpkin sprinkles to add a bit of flair to the tea. That would be a treat!
This tea is enough of a sweet that it should keep me out of the kids’ candy buckets this Halloween. At least let’s hope so!
