Shae Advent Day 15

Whoops, I accidentally mixed up days 14 & 15 – hopefully I didn’t destroy your carefully curated vision of this advent, Shae! This is a nice chai! I wouldn’t call it spicy, but the combination of spices is cohesive and interesting. It has a bit of that sweet cinnamon flavor, which isn’t my #1 favorite, but it’s combined with some other tasty flavors. There’s a tiny bit of a lingering tingle from this tea.

I got rather cardamom notes from this, than sweet cinnamon, but it has been a year afterall!

Shae

Cinnamon was the dominant flavor for me too. You won’t mess up anything by mixing them up! I do have them in a particular order, but mostly because I love organizing things and I couldn’t not put them in some sort of order. :D

AJRimmer

Ha yeah I put mine in a super specific order too, trying to vary up the companies, tea types, flavor profiles, and putting all the most Christmas-ish flavors at the end. I find it really satisfying to lay all the packets out on the table and switch them around :P

Michelle

You guys crack me up. I gave Skysamurai the choice to randomly open or put the numbered stickers on the small cardboard houses herself. But they were mostly black tea anyway so did the order matter?

AJRimmer

Ha one of the best things about this exchange is how everyone does things differently!

Michelle

Yes indeed, it joins two of my favorite things: being creative and doing something nice for someone else.

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
