Until two years ago, I didn’t understand or embrace the concept of “dessert teas,” like Pecan Praline tea. I thought chai lovely and Rooibos lattes divine. Still, otherwise, the idea was foreign and felt too indulgent to regularly enjoy.
And then, I found some delectable offerings from David’s Tea, Harney & Sons, and other quality brands.
Now, one of my main ways to celebrate anything is with a cup of dessert tea of some kind.
One of my absolute favorites now is Pecan Praline tea from the Simple Loose Leaf Tea Company.
When you open the bag of loose-leaf Pecan Praline tea, you’re instantly transported to the deep South, where pecan praline candies are basically a rite of passage. The sweet, indulgent aroma of the nuts, deep, dark leaves, and spices make for the heady scent that recalls childhood and comfort wrapped in a grandmother’s hug.
When you pour your hot water over the tea, the fragrance lifts and fills the nose with sweetness and, dare I say, joy.
Pecan Praline tea isn’t something you’ll likely want to drink every day. It’s an indulgent beverage and requires some time to sip and delight in. But, from the first quaff to the last drop, the tea may transport you through time and space to places of peace and harmony.
It may technically be guzzled when cool enough and can leave a lingering essence of sweet hominess in the senses. But you must relax and slowly imbibe, or the tea will lose its power over you and become just another Indian black tea with hints of something.
Pecan Praline tea is one that I love to sip on during my morning patio tea times. It’s an indulgence worth soaking in for minutes or even hours if you have the freedom. I like to keep a tea warmer nearby to keep this sweet tea simmering or add a hint of hot water throughout the day to keep it warm and drink-worthy.
And if you love a latte, Pecan Praline tea blends perfectly with light vanilla almond milk and a drizzle of honey. This brings the “pie” or “candy” scent to life even more, when you really want to indulge, delightfully iced or hot.
