Paper & Tea 2022 Advent Day 15: Vintage Lotus

Well, I am not generally a fan of pu’erh, unless the tea itself is perfectly hidden. Alas, it is not here and thus, this was dumped.

Nabo 2022 Advent Day 14: Grönbos

My mom is doing this advent with us (from across the country) and she’s not big on tea but was really excited for this very unique mix of ingredients. I got a text halfway through the day with the confirmation that she did in fact enjoy it! Cut to many hours later when I eventually got home from work – I was also pleasantly surprised with this one. The green rooibos base lends itself nicely and I found cinnamon to be at the forefront, but not in an obnoxious or raw cinnamon way, but a baked good way. The rosemary came through ever so slightly at the end of the sip, with an almost (without the cooling effect) eucalyptus sort of way. I really enjoyed this tea.

You and your mam doing the same calendar across the country is so sweet!

A.C. Perch 2022 Advent Day 14: Organic Green Kukicha

This was lovely. Equally reoast toasty and green tea – the kukichas I’ve had in the past have been all roasty toasty. This was a nicely balanced and smooth cup.

Paper & Tea 2022 Advent Day 14: Top of the Day

This one was so pretty I had to take a photo of the dry leaf! I was really surprised in the most positive way with this tea. Peppermint, hibiscus, and lemongrass? I wasn’t expecting much considering I generally avoid peppermint and lemongrass in teas. I was happily proven wrong here – somehow these ingredients come together to create a wonderful cup. This one I would order for the cupboard!

A.C. Perch 2022 Advent Day 13: Organic Green Christmas

This one is fairly tasty. The cinnamon smelled quite strong in the dry leaf but is significantly mellowed in the taste. I would say the spiciness of the cinnamon is almost on par with the green base itself. Another smooth cup from A.C. Perch!

Nabo 2022 Advent Day 13: Persika

Another one I have in my cupboard with a similar story – I wasn’t too sure about it, and now I love it! Thanks in no small part to decreasing the steeping time.

I find the chokecherry really comes to the forefront of this one, with the peach slightly hidden away. I love peach in teas, and this one is such a unique take I almost love it more!

Nabo 2022 Advent Day 12: Blårbärsskogen

I ordered 50g of this one as well and I wasn’t too sure about it at first, but I really love it now. I find the blueberry to really come out and the depth of the flavour really makes me think of a forest. Nabo does their berry teas spectacularly in my opinion.

Lovely, comforting cup. Mostly chamomile with whispers of orange.

A.C. Perch 2022 Advent Day 12: Ceylon OP

True to A.C. Perch form, another incredibly smooth tea. This was a very light-bodied Ceylon with absolutely no astringency, bitterness, or drying. We both really enjoyed this one — one of those cups where I drank a whole teapot without realising and was almost saddened to realise the tea was gone.

I am glad we have more of this one and would seriously consider adding this to our cupboard.

Ehhh rose. However, the vanilla and hints of fruitiness really helped to mellow the rose and dare I say this cup was decently enjoyable.

Bio

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug. I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted/green and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens (mango or pineapple, yum!).

Likes:
Raspberry, strawberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, blackcurrant, redcurrant, fig, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, jasmine, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
