Plum Deluxe Advent Te Calendar Day 11

I have decided to just move forward with the advent calendars. I’m not going to beat myself up or try to rush to catch up, and if I miss a day, I can always go back in January and try them then. I want to enjoy my tea, not make it a chore.

So. I enjoyed this one. I got a nice creamy, almond-y scent from the dry leaf, a bit or orange flavor in the sip. It was a little more artificial than I like. As I said, I enjoyed it. If a friend served this I would happily drink it. But I do not plan to order any.

Plum Deluxe Advent Calendar – Day 11

Hmm, a fruit and food tisane à la Teavana. I never seem to enjoy these, so let’s get this over with… :P It smells like some kind of desserty candle in the packet.

Well, I’m glad that it’s not super tart given the beautiful-yet-worrisome coral color. It mostly tastes vaguely of creamy apple and sweet almond. Maybe a hint of sweet spice (anise?) as well, and some orange. The beginning of the sip is quite artificial and sweet, and then the hibiscus and apple tartness pops out in the aftertaste and leaves a somewhat acrid taste in my throat.

It reminds me of Forever Nut or something similar, and I never like those. Bah humbug!

And there actually wasn’t any hibi in this blend (at least, not on my ingredients packet). Only rosehips.

Cameron B.

Wow, you’re right! I guess it was just the apple and rose hips, and the color was from the beetroot.

Advent Day 11

This tea smells so good dry! I’ve been letting it steep all day and that might have been a bit much. There is a tartness that I’m not super into, but the rest of it seems pretty delightful. I get almond extract and fruit. There was a huge star anise in there that is nice too. I wish I could figure out how I feel about this tea, but my tiny roommates keep interrupting my thoughts to tell me about bird videos on Instagram or some random joke they just read in a book. I love my tiny roomies, but I also really love complaining about them. I complain with love. Orange. There is orange in the finish that I’m not crazy about with the rest of what this blend has going on. Almond, anise then orange.

Update: Sitting next to my empty cup after a few hours of finishing it and the cup smelled exactly like honey candy! That floral sweet scent. I didn’t get any of that in the tea.

Mastress Alita

There wasn’t even any anise in the serving I got.

Dustin

Wow. Weird. It was like 30% of what my sample was.

I like the aroma of this dry leaf… it smells like creamsicle to me, orange and vanilla. Brewed up (full packet to 350ml, and honestly, chunky herbals like this I usually brew even stronger than what was available in this packet, but I didn’t want a tiny cup), the liquor is pinkish-orange and smells more strongly orange, and a little fruit punchy. The flavor… is indeed a bit weaker than I prefer these sorts of herbals (but then, I could tell that from looking at the dry leaf…) but is a pleasant enough taste. It does have a mostly creamsicle sort of taste to me, in that I’m getting a very orange forward flavor, but it’s a sweet orange… I remember there was a “candied orange” tea earlier in the advent that didn’t taste “candied” to me at all, because it was a strong, biting citrusy orange, but this is actually what I imagine a “candied orange” flavor would taste like… it’s a creamy, sweet orange. The base has a bit of a fruitiness to it, but the rosehips aren’t giving the sort of tart punchiness that hibi might… far more mellow. I’m not tasting any of the spices that are supposedly in the blend (huh…) Other than the citrus of the orange having a bit of a natural tanginess to it, this is actually a very sweet cup. I like it… but nothing about it tastes like “honey” or almonds to me! (And honestly, I’m so tired of nutty profiles from Plum Deluxe that I’m thankful I’m just getting candied orange/creamsicle instead…)

I made this in my smallest cup and it still tastes like slightly flavored water, ha ha…

Mastress Alita

Seems the ingredient distribution ended up a bit different in our ant-sized portions, too. Dustin got a star anise but I didn’t. If you are going to serve a chonky herbal, you gotta chonk it up properly!

Dustin

What was it in Willy Wonka where everyone tasted something different when eating the same candy? I think this tea is like that! It was a nearly complete star too. It may have been missing two wings or whatever they are. It was huge for how small the sample is.

Mastress Alita

Hahaha, yes! Heh, for me I had a very large orange wedge in the sample!

Cameron B.

I didn’t see anything unusual in mine, it just looked like apple, hibiscus, and rosehips. I did notice one cardamom pod.

Plum Deluxe Advent Day 11

Very much like DavidsTea’s Forever Nuts and Forever Frosty. Very almondy, with a bit of orange. I’m getting a similar bubblegum flavor that I dislike in Forever Frosty.
But it just seems like there just isn’t enough dry leaf to make a proper cup. I used the entire packet and only a few ounces of water and it was still extremely weak and watery.

Mastress Alita

I found the same issue with the amount of leaf offered.

AJRimmer

Yeahhh this one was so small for me too. I’ll definitely use my tiniest mug.

Luckily I didn’t care for this blend, so I wasn’t too sad to have such a small quantity.
