Suggested brewing tips
Brewing time: 5-10 minutes
Water temperature: 100ºC
Quantity: 1 teaspoon
Dry Aroma: A warm buttery aroma with a fresh fruity hint and the distinct smell of milk powder.
Liquor color: A pale yellow-orange.
Liquor aroma: The aroma of the steeped liquor is very similar to the dry aroma. There is predominant caramel milk like fragrance with a light fruity hint.
As the hot water hits the dry blend, the cube of marshmallow melts and merges forming a top white layer for a brief few seconds. The resulting liquor is a representation of buttery biscuits in a teacup. The ‘Cheeky digestive’ has a creamy rich quality with the flavor of blueberry and vanilla standing out.
On the downside, I felt like the tasting wasn’t consistent. For instance, when I tried it for 10 minutes, the blend was too sweet. But even at 7 minutes on one of two tastings, the flavor had an overpowering sweetness. I would suggest steeping it for 5 minutes where I got a balanced flavor profile.
Note: The ingredients in the ‘Cheeky digestive’ have a lot of artificial flavors and sweetening which I am not in support of. The flavors do come together nicely but knowing that the blend is tweaked to get that sort of end result is a putting off factor.
