Simpson & Vail Advent Calendar – Day 8
(originally written November 8th)
Ooh, another green rooibos blend. I’ve definitely been the most impressed with these blends so far from the Simpson & Vail advent. The candy cane one in particular was really good, and the dragonfruit version was tasty also.
Wow, this is really cookie-ish. The flavoring they’re using is quite buttery and really sells the snickerdoodle concept. There’s also a good dose of cinnamon, and it’s the powdered spice kind as opposed to the candy one.
However… This is quite sweet from the blackberry leaves. It’s sweeter than I would prefer. To be fair, it’s not overly cloying.
This really does taste like a snickerdoodle, though it is perhaps a tad heavy on the cinnamon.
Flavors: Butter, Cinnamon, Cookie, Sweet
