drank Christmas Spice by Tea Revv
153 tasting notes

12 days of (Christmas) tea (Tea Revv) – Day 3
Today´s tea is a very traditional Christmas blend called Christmas Spice…and although I´m not a huge fan of chai and other very spiced tea blends, I could really appreciate this one : when opening the pouch, it smelled like “peperkoek”, a typical Belgian type of cake we have for Saint-Nicholas day on 6th December. I had some the other day with coffee, mmm.
So, this tea then : it smells really great, “peperkoek” entirely. A while back, I bought a tea called Biscottea from Bruu, which has a very similar smell; and it also tastes great, peppery spicy without overdoing the sweetness or the cinnamon-like touches to it. This tea performs a bit worse in mouth : it seems like a de-theine-ated ;-) version of Biscottea, lacking some of the peppery spiciness it truly shows in nose. But even then, it´s still a very balanced brew, which I wouldn´t mind repeating some day…

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
