I saw this tea when I was looking on the Harney & Sons website for my favorite Gingerbread Festival tea. In honor of the season, I decided to give the Williamsburg Holiday Heritage tea and this one a try as well. At the first sip there is a warm, spicy flavor but no one particular spice stands out. After the initial warm spice flavor, there’s a subtle molasses taste but it’s not as predominant as it is in the Gingerbread Festival tea. There’s also a subtle orange flavor but, again, it’s very blended and, for me, no one flavor dominates.
I have no idea how a Williamsburg Ginger Cake tastes but if it’s anything like this tea I may have to find a recipe. I think this will become one of those seasonal Harney teas that I will splurge on every winter. I only wish it was available loose as well as in the sachets.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Molasses, Orange, Spices
