This was in the 24 Days of Tea, so I thought I would review it! Also I am procrastinating studying…it’s finals season – YAY (extreme sarcasm).
Anyways, I bought a skinny tin of this tea when it came out in the winter collection so that I could try it at home. I figured by the smell that I would like it, so I just figured ‘What the heck!’ and bought it. I didn’t think that it smelled like bubblegum until someone in the store said it smells like bubblegum. Now, it is all I smell. I did think the fragrance was very strong and fruity when I smelled it, but I still thought I’d try it (I’m also not really a fan of hot fruity teas, so I really don’t know why I purchased this at all lol).
The fragrance is very strong, but it doesn’t taste super strong. Also, I have just left the tea bag in while drinking it and it hasn’t become overpoweringly strong at all, which surprised me. I do get notes of cloves, but it is definitely more orange-y than anythng. I’m not upset about that though, because I was expecting it to be a cinnamon-y cider which I’m not a fan of. It kind of reminds me of a fruit punch. I’ve never had mulled wine, so I’m not sure if it is true to it’s name or not.
I would drink this again, and I have to because I have about 40 grams of it left haha. I won’t be upset when it is gone, but it’ll have been a good run.
Flavors: Clove, Fruit Punch, Fruity, Orange
