Gently smoky gunpowder combined with bright tangy apples and rose hips, bring to mind a misty morning stroll. Hints of cinnamon and creme brulee flavor warm and comfort you like a favorite sweater. Steep at 180°F for 3 minutes

      This is possibly my favourite tea ever... a mix of sweetness and gunpowder, it tastes like a decadent blended drink from a coffee place or something, turned into a tea that isn't too overpowering. Though I do wish you could buy it all year round, despite the name.

      Maybe my palate isn't as finely tuned today as it usually is but I'm really not getting much more than creme brulee. It's almost like drinking a cup of maple syrup, minus the tooth and stomachache.

      What a fantastic treat! Crème brûlée flavors with a delicious green gunpowder base. This is a luscious sweet treat for those cold grey fall days.

      What a great combo of flavors! The creme brulee is strong - creamy, caramely goodness - a plus in my book. The gunpowder does provide its earthy, smokiness. It doesn't overpower the creme brulee, but gives depth to the tea. The other flavors - cinnamon, rose - aren't really as discernible. .. 3min 180F

      This is a fantastic spiced autumn tea if you’re looking for something tasty with a little less caffeine than the traditional chais and pumpkin spice blends. The “creme brûlée” flavor is intense and caramel-y, but it adds a nice sweetness so I didn’t feel the need to add anything else. Definitely adding this to my list of fall favorites.

      Reminds me so much of creme brulee! I can't wait for them to restock this. I will be buying a large bag of this whenever it comes back.

      This tea smells wonderful. Both taste and scent is like that of creme brulee. It's quite delicious and goes down smooth.

      Brewed 175F for 3 minutes

      Very different from other teas I;ve had. The smell is amazing and it tastes pretty good, just slightly underwhelming

      Delicious delicious delicious!! Love this Creme brûlée-dominated green tea - the perfect amount of sweetness with a hit of caffeine. Yum!

      This is a really different take on traditional green tea. It has a wonderful creme brûlée fragrance and flavoring, but the green tea still shines through.

      This tea is my favorite. I love the gunpowder green with all of the other flavors mixed together.

      This tea smells AMAZING, but flavors don't come through quite as well as I was hoping.

      Sweet and delicious! I was slightly disappointed that most of the flavors were overpowered by the creme brulee, but you can't be too disappointed when the final product is so delightful.

      Tastes like creme brulee syrup! The sugar flavor is almost overwhelming, and the other flavors aren't noticeable because of it, but if you like sugar flavors, this will be a hit!

      New fave for this fall. I add raw honey and drink warm.

      Awesome, comforting fall flavors. Love the smoky creme brule taste.

      Loved this tea! The smokiness and the apples bring to mind sitting by a bonfire, sipping cider.

      Lovely tea to half on brisk fall mornings, a hint of smokiness that blends into the taste and aroma of creme brûlée and apples.

      A delightful, warm, cozy tea. I love the evenness of flavours between the creme brulle and the cinnamon - like a unique apple cider. Perfect with a bit of sugar.

      The aroma and flavor of this tea almost call to mind the idea of caramel, with pleasant apple tones throughout.

      This is a lovely, unique tea. The flavor combination doesn't sound like it would necessarily work, but they harmonize very nicely together.

      Words escape me as I try to put this flavor into words. It's an entirely new taste I've never experienced in a tea before. The creme brulee flavor definitely carries to the forefront, but the diversity of gunpower, rose, apple, and cinnamon blend together so seamlessly that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, creating something entirely novel. I also noticed that even though I (accidentally) steeped my first serving at 212 degrees, the tea didn't 'burn,' though I imagine steeping at 108 degrees would coax more flavor out of it. Very much worth buying a sample, just to experience its uniqueness. The flavor isn't smokey or bitter in the slightest, but brings to mind the crisp scent of a stale autumn morning.

      I am not a green tea fan, but this was actually a pretty good tea! Not my favorite, but still nice. The flavor is very weak, which I am not a huge fan of.
