Strong cinnamon tastes. Burns in a bad way at the end. Didn’t finish. Advisory: best without milk. No milk recommended, but it may have helped r/t thickening the consistency and tone down the spice. The tea felt very thin. Tasted 12.2018

Tea Revv Advent Calendar – Day 3

(originally written November 3rd)

I love the cute, modern artwork on these Tea Revv advent packets. This one has a polar bear on it! ❤

I accidentally used more water than I meant to for this tea. Since I’m doing this advent and the Simpson & Vail version at the same time (and they have different amounts of tea in them), I forgot that I was only steeping 12 ounces of tea with these packets. Oh well!

It didn’t come out terribly weak, which is good. I would say this is a fairly good spiced apple tea. There’s a bit more spice than apple, and it’s quite sweet overall. Definitely a good dusting of cinnamon along with a bit of apple. It also does taste a bit pastry-ish, maybe with some almond? The base tea mostly tastes of dried leaves and is a tad astringent. Definitely not a quality green tea.

It’s almost good, but not quite there with the light apple flavoring and less-than-flavorful base.

This was nice. Very apple-y, sweet cinnamon (not the bitter astringent kind you sometimes have, nor cinnamon candy), and a light green tea background to keep it from being too sweet. Simple but nice, and I enjoyed this one. It would probably be good iced but would need to be made much, much stronger.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Sweet

I was surprised to find this already listed in Steepster but I am glad it was. Thanks Cameron B!

Tea Revv was super awesome and sent me their tea advent calendar to review for Sororitea Sisters. It’s very cute and relatively inexpensive. You can check out that review here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2018/11/14/tea-24-advent-calendar-2018-from-tea-revv/

This tea is actually really nice. The green tea base has more depth than usual green teas and tends to me more umami than grass. Here it is actually very subtle which is making the apple flavor really stand out. The spice is really on point too. It tastes the way an appley holiday candle would smell. Super wintery but still light.

Cameron B.

You’re welcome, ha ha! I’ve been doing this calendar in November, and entering/updating the teas as I go even though I’m not posting the notes yet. ;)

VariaTEA

Haha I was actually thinking after I posted this maybe I shouldn’t be commenting on the teas and ruining the surprise. However, the teas are listed on the website so maybe it’s ok. I don’t know. I also am including the teas in my 365daysoftea on Instagram and if I start today it takes me to my last day of class. However maybe I should because perhaps people want the surprise…

Cameron B.

I don’t think you’re ruining it here, it’s only one tea and you’re not even saying which number it was!

Maybe for instagram, you could post the photo but not reveal the name of the tea? Unless you’re wanting to include the packet in the photo as well.

Cameron B.

Nevermind, I see you are posting the packet. You could potentially cover up the name? I dunno, I don’t think people will be too upset by the spoiler. :P

P.S. – The #365daysoftea thing is intriguing, is that this year only or do people do it every year…?

VariaTEA

It’s because the company sent the calendar and wanted me to post about it and write a review prior to the holidays so people could buy it before December. Perhaps they have a preference.

And the 365daysoftea can be started whenever. I’ve done it twice now and the first time I was nuts about making sure I posted everyday. This time around I’ve been more chill and if I miss a day or a week here and there I just pick up where I left off.

Cameron B.

Sounds fun, I’ll have to start doing that next year!

Roswell Strange

I finished my first year doing the 365Days challenge in October; I largely loved doing it but I was SUPER intense about not missing days which did get to be stressful on days where I was sick or REALLY busy (a few days I literally got my picture up MINUTES before midnight). I’d do it again though; really a positive experience from a creative point of view. Though I definitely am going to need a bigger gap in between when I start…
