I wanted to love this tea. The warm spice is evident as soon as you open the packet to find the tea temple. It smells lovely; a festive holiday treat.
Drinking it was mostly ginger and chili, and the chili lingered as an aftertaste. I like a strong spice, so I appreciated that it was bold, it was just missing something. I got no hints of fruit until, near the end of the cup, it cooled significantly. Perhaps it would have been better iced, but as it was, I wasn’t a fan.
