I’ve been drinking this tea a lot lately, and just finished off a 2oz bag. Simmered it in oat milk on the stove for 10 minutes, and added a shot of banana matcha from 3 Leaf. Sooooooo freaking good. Tastes like a piece of freshly baked banana bread.

Advent day 7! Wow, this tea smells incredible. Really strong passion fruit notes in the dry leaf. Brewed, the jasmine is much more prevalent. The passion fruit is much more mild flavor-wise, with mild citrus and jasmine at the forefront. I really loved this cup, it’s actually one of my favorites so far in the DF advent.

Flavors: Citrus, Jasmine, Passion Fruits

Just got this in a grab bag from 52Teas and had to brew it up as soon as I smelled it. The mango is sweet and juicy, and is nicely balances by the spice. It’s really, really excellent. I actually slurped down my cup pretty quickly, which I haven’t done with a tea in awhile.

Advent day 6! A very nice, strong caramel aroma coming through the bag. The caramel is the dominant flavor, but the candy-like apple is definitely present in the aftertaste.

Advent day 6! This is a really odd tea. I’m not getting any chocolate, and the coconut flavor is minimal. I’m getting a really strong vegetal, almost artichoke quality to it.

Advent day 6! I’m generally not a huge fan of rooibos. I find it tastes like stick water+whatever over ingredients are in the tea. However, this one isn’t terrible! It does have a nice baked good quality, and a wee bit of spice. It’s a really smooth mouthfeel, which I’m enjoying. Stick flavor is minimal, which is always a plus for me!

Haha, “stick flavor” is a great description of how rooibos tastes. :)

I received this in one of my multiple orders from Necessiteas over the last few months. I’m really loving the blends I’ve tried! I probably would’t have chosen this for myself, so it was a nice surprise. I’ve also been having A LOT of really heavy teas lately, this morning in particular, and wanted something a bit more vibrant and bright. This definitely hit the spot! Zesty and packed full of bright citrus flavor. Really lemony, a bit of vanilla.

Flavors: Lemon, Lemon Zest, Lemongrass, Vanilla

Advent day 4! A robust chocolate flavor, that doesn’t have that synthetic profile so many chocolate teas suffer from. The apple definitely gives it a tanginess that is interesting with the chocolate. I love that it’s an herbal as well.

I don’t usually like chocolate-flavored tea, but I enjoy this one. :)
