Adventaggedon Day 23 – Tea 4/6
Today, in “welp, I’m an idiot”, I saw the name of this tea after taking off the scratch off name and my first thought was that it was going to be a gingerbread flavoured Old Fashioned as in the cocktail. I even opened the bag and gave the tea a sniff, to which I though “Huh, I don’t think I get it” before realizing that I was just a fucking moron.
I think I had a Gingerbread inspired or “Gingerbread like” tea in every single advent this year, except for Offblak. That’s kind of to be expected, it’s a pretty festive flavour. Some of them were pretty nice – but this was my favourite. It’s ginger at the forefront but backed by malt, molasses, allspice, dark and dense sweetness, clove and all those other goodies that make a gingerbread cookie so delicious. Gingerbread is sort of an enigma of sorts for me – I don’t like the taste of straight up, spicy or raw ginger very much but with those darker notes or a juicy fruit? Yeah, I can fuck with that. So, gingerbread is something I often do enjoy.
I don’t think I would have ever ordered this for myself, but I’m glad I got to try it because it was a nice surprise and a very fun and festive way to close out the 52Teas “12 Teas of Christmas” advent! Can’t wait for next years!
