BrutaliTeas Advent Calendar 2022 – Day 1
Happy December, tea people! \o/
I’ve been so excited to be able to start opening all of my advents, and the day is finally here! Sadly I have an all-day work meeting today that started at 8:30, and there wasn’t really any decent natural light in my house before that so I haven’t had a chance to take photos yet. But I did manage to hastily take one of this tea, so I could enjoy it as my first tea of the day during my work call!
So I steeped this as a black tea, not realizing it has gunpowder green tea in it as well. Luckily, that’s a very hearty green tea so it doesn’t seem to have had any adverse affect on the taste. This is a yummy caramel apple black tea (I don’t taste the gunpowder). It has a desserty sort of apple flavor, like a sweet apple tart or cake with caramel sauce. I don’t get much of a spice profile from it, though it does contain cinnamon, but I’m not missing it either.
Enjoying it this December morning! It’s sweet and desserty without being cloying, and it’s giving me maple vibes which is perfect for breakfast.
