Day 6 of our Advent Tea Swap. From amandastory516.

I did a quick search online to see if I could find more information about this tea, but it looks like it’s no longer available. I wonder why since this is a really nice tea, and creative too with the fire and ice concept. It looks like this was released in September so maybe Game of Thrones just lost some of its hype since the finale is done.

I do think the flavor on this is really nice. I definitely get the cooling mint at first sip and feel the tingling spice of the peppercorns at the end. Its a fun idea and comes across well in the tea. I don’t really taste the puerh, but I also don’t really drink it enough to know its flavors intimately.

Not one I’d purchase most likely, even if available, but it’s one I’ll enjoy while I have it.

Now I’m off to enjoy a double date lunch with my brother and his girlfriend, then a surprise Advent activity they’ve set up for us. Have a wonderful day, fellow Steepsterites!

Flavors: Mint, Spicy

Well, B&B likes their seasonals so with the name being “winter is coming” it probably means the blend was gone by winter. haha

Oh gotcha, I’m not too familiar with the company but that makes sense.

Bio

Lifetime student. Lover of books and paper and ink. Kitchen dweller. Aspiring herbalist and tea fanatic.

I love flavored black teas most of all, always with cream and honey. I prefer to sweeten my tea as it seems to bring out the flavor. I enjoy floral and fruity teas, as well as flavored or scented ones. I’m not overly fond of green or white teas, but I’ve found a few that I enjoy.

Favorites
Any and all black teas, smoky teas, raspberry, strawberry, chocolate, bergamot, chai spices, cinnamon, cream, floral teas, caramel/toffee, jasmine, rose, vanilla, stone fruits, coconut, valerian root

Not a fan
Lime, white teas (someone tell me what I’m doing wrong with these!), most green teas, artificial sweeteners, sarsaparilla, licorice

I’m open to tea swaps! Just reach out if you see something I have that you want to try.

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-40: This tea is not good but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

41-60: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

61-75: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

76-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
