12 days of (Christmas) tea (Tea Revv) – Day 5
What it says on Tea Revv´s website : A rooibos and fruit blend with sweet cinnamon, pear and apple. Try this Cinnabon as a lattea with hot frothed milk and a drop of Honey.
My experience : firstly, this is a rooibos based tea, so not that easy to drink when using a ceramic filter for the loose tea (the rooibos goes straight through the holes of the filter); the dry loose tea doesn´t have a nice smell, more like an artificial wine flavour coming through. Fortunately, this changes – for the better – when steeped : it reminds me of pears prepared in wine, with some cinnamon…a dessert I really like. In mouth I cannot find the pear anymore, it´s a kind of mulled wine taste according to me. Not bad, and certainly in line with the season, but lacking elegance. Although Tea Revv recommends drinking this tea with milk, I cannot really see its interest.
