Thank you for sharing, Sil!

The spices are perfect with the booze and honey I added. :D

All I can really smell/taste is cloves and a bit of cinnamon, though. Possibly due to the sick, but it’s hard to say. I think I prefer Esprit de Noel (black) from Mariage Freres.

Thanks for sharing this with me Sil – It’s called a Christmas Spice Tea and I guess it is – but it read more as a chai. This is a nice light spice tea – I didn’t get as much fruit flavors as Sil commented on – but there was a hint of vanilla.
All in all this was an enjoyable cup. Happy to have tried it.

This was a sample provided by the secret garden tea company. I’ve been searching for a christmas spice tea that wasn’t as intense as many of other ones from france are. This one smells very similar to other christmas spice teas. Brewed up though, this is softer…christmas spice without that intense in your face orange, clove that a lot of spice teas have. I think that it might be the addition of vanilla, or perhaps the cranberries? The ingredients don’t list the berry that i can see, but the two makes this a tasty blend.

Thanks Secret Garden tea, for letting me try this one!

Eek, I don’t think I’ve ever been the first to review! I guess because this is a local tea, not many have tried.

I bought this last year from Secret Garden tea shoppe, which is a small, cute shop in central Vancouver, popular for high-tea. They sell a lot of tea, many of which have tasty sounding names….but few reviews, so hard to know if their stuff is tasty. They also have 100 gram minimum, quite a lot of tea, if you end up not liking it.

Anyway, I bought “Christmas spice” black tea last year, and only had one, totally forgettable cup. Tonight I brewed 2 tsps in my Davids steeper ( quite full ) for about 5 minutes ( no instructions on the bag). I prepped hot frothed milk in my Breville milk frother. I keep the frother in the freezer, so it has to spin for quite a while to heat the milk, and really makes a ton of lovely foam, which I used to make a big frothy latte.

This tea is better than I remember. Not too strong ( I would have liked a bit more spicy kick) but it tastes like a nice Christmas spice. Kind of like eggnog spice, I get some nutmeg. Next time I will sprinkle some cinnamon on top, or maybe get some cinnamon stir sticks which might nicely kick up the flavour. I am burning a new candle, pumpkin gingerbread, and the scent is really complementary to this tea.
