From Bird & Blend Tea Co.

Nothing says Christmas celebration better than a glass of bubbly so why not swap your glass for a mug this year & enjoy our Buck’s Fizz brew? It packs an orange punch, won’t get you tipsy, can be enjoyed before bed due to being naturally caffeine-free & we’ve blended in little nuggets of gold so your cuppa will sparkle when brewed… fancy or what?!

Bird & Blend Advent Day 24 (24-December 2020)

It’s Christmas Eve here, but happiest of everything to everyone! I can’t believe we’re at the end of the advent! I’ll definitely miss reading everyone’s advent notes, and looking forward to our surprise tea each day.

This one in the dry sachet looks just like orange pop! The sachet said there would be sprinkles, but I didn’t see any to pick out, so that a bonus.

It smells more intensely than it tastes, which is a shame. Drinking it is like drinking a hot orange that’s been watered down ahah. There’s nothing wrong or offensive, but I do wish it was more flavourful. I may chill the rest of my mug to see how it is cold.

Okay, chilled it is sadly less orange and more like an orange candy, but without the orange haha? Like a rocket candy, sort of.

P.S. Lexa and I will be doing the Dammann Frères advent in February haha — so we have that to look forward to!

Same here. It’s sad to see Advent being over. On the other tea, we can now pick almost any tea in our stashes and well, I have lots of tea to sip down. It was fun reading, commenting and just sharing our festive customs.

Happy everything! Also looking forward to your DF advent notes. :D

Adventaggedon Day 24 – Tea 1/6

It’s the final day of advents and Christmas Eve!!! Aaaahh! That is honestly so hard to believe; in a lot of ways I feel like just last week was March and the beginning of the lockdown. What does it say that a year has felt so painfully long yet drastically fast!?

When I first saw this is the advent today I was a bit surprised – I really expected something more overly festive/Christmas inspired for this last day. However, it eventually clicked that Bird and Blend sort of markets this tea as a “New Years” blend, so it makes some sense for it to be the last day. Plus, I guess Mimosas/cocktails is a thing that some people do for either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

I’ve had this one before – in fact, it was the free sample that came with my advent order. It’s nice enough; a very sweet orange flavour without much else going on. That could be both a positive or a negative depending on your outlook. I had it midday with a slice of panettone (my first ever time trying it – inspired by the B&B tea from earlier in the advent) and it felt festive-ish. Festive enough.

Martin Advent Day 18
Quite tart until I added lots of sugar. I feel similarly about it as the last time I had it. I prefer other orange blends that are more complex. This one is mostly just tart orange. Not bad, just pretty one dimensional.

I was expecting more too :(

July 2020 subscription

I am not impressed. Dry it smells like loads of oranges, so I used two teaspoons for my DIY tea bag and… not impressed with results after 5 minutes steep.

It is quite generic fruity, tends to oranges a bit, but certainly noticed hibi and rosehips. It wasn’t much fresh oranges as I have hoped, nor any other citrus fruits. Why there are in sprinkles?

Flavors: Fruity, Hibiscus, Rosehips

Sprinkles?! No way! Did you know that a Buck’s Fizz is a British cocktail suited for day drinking?

Not to be confused with the British pop group that won us Eurovision in the 80s, Bucks Fizz is a very simple cocktail that is synonymous with brunch culture, weddings and basically any party where you want to drink early.

But what actually is Bucks Fizz and how is it different to a mimosa?

Yes, a mimosa also contains Champagne and orange juice, but in equal measures. Bucks Fizz contains more fizz, and just a small amount of juice to dilute. Bucks Fizz was actually invented first, then the mimosa was invented a few years later in Paris.

Where is Bucks Fizz from?

Named after the place it was invented, the Bucks Fizz was created in 1921 by a barman at London’s Buck’s Club. So there!

I had no idea! Mostly because I never been much friend of coctails. It seems though very easy to make, though getting champagne would make it bit expensive.

Then I don’t understand the overall fruity profile and not oranges :(

White Antlers

I love cocktails very much and with COVID, miss meeting friends for happy hour. You have to wonder sometimes who comes up with these tea names, don’t you? In the U.S., champagne has a wide range of prices, high to low, and often restaurants will serve a cheaper champagne when mixing it with orange juice because most people will not notice OR care-especially after 3 or 4. lol

I really don’t know anything about cocktails, but I have definitely never heard of this one! I teresting story behind it.

I had a mimosa by accident once. I was at anthropologie at Myrtle Beach with Superanna one Mother’s Day and they were serving tiny cupcakes with glitter dust (yes, real plastic glitter dust) and mimosa’s, but I hadn’t heard of them and thought it was orange juice, and paired with a super sweet cupcake, it was awful! I told Superanna it was the worst orange juice ever but perhaps it was the pairing and she laughed and told it was probably a mimosa! A few minutes later, I heard a sale clerk telling a man that his children were welcome to take a Mother’s Day cupcake but not the drink! Ha ha!

White Antlers

Great story, ashmanra. Mimosas are usually bad because cheap champagne plus semi-bitter orange juice concentrate equals a subpar drink. Cheap to make which is why they are so often served as a ‘bottomless’ brunch drink. : P

Leafhopper

Interesting story! I didn’t know about the Bucks Fizz either.

Martin Bednář

Haha, great story ashmanra.
White Antlers: I bet we can get decent selection here as well. I just don’t look over there while shopping.

I made this hot, but I’m definitely looking forward to making it iced mixed with sparkling water. It’s zesty and tart- like eating a freshly peeled orange. I’m also a sucker for the shimmer.
