I received this as a sample with my DF advent, and finally brewed it up. Really enjoying the crisp, tart raspberry. Very much a candy-like raspberry.

A big thanks to Shae for sending this to me in our swap! I love marshmallow flavored teas, and this one is packed full of authentic toasty flavor. The blend of shou mei and houjicha was pleasantly roasted, and slightly vegetal. So lovely combined with the marshmallow flavor. It was so cozy and comforting, that I actually fell asleep holding the half full cup last night. Luckily, my boyfriend saw it happening and took it out of my hands before tea spilled everywhere.

Advent day 8! This tastes just like a cherry jolly rancher. Nice, tart cherries combined with almond and ginger. I don’t get much of a gingerbread note, it’s definitely more of a straight tart cherry. I really enjoy hibiscus, so found this cup delightful. I’d consider repurchasing it!

Flavors: Almond, Cherry, Ginger

Advent day 8! This is another Brutaliteas blend I’ve been wanting to try. Very glad to see it in the advent! The chocolate and cinnamon are most prevalent, but the orange is becoming more distinct as it cools. The rooibos is pretty much unnoticeable, with the pu-erh being a bit more at the forefront. Really enjoyable and well-balanced.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Orange

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.
