307 tasting notes

Finishing off what I have of this tea. It’s been a decent tea, and certainly tastes right for the season (yes, it has orange and spices, though orange isn’t the first fruit listed, nor is it the only one, for once).

From the ingredient list, it sounds like it should be fruit with spices, but instead it tastes like spices with fruit. The strongest taste I get from this is… the taste of mulling spices at the bottom of a cup of spider (cloves mainly, but also perhaps nutmeg and cinnamon), but without the gritty texture. There’s a fruity sweetness underlying, but it’s very much overpowered by the spices.

I was going to try adding milk once the cup was about half-done, but unfortunately the milk didn’t seem to like that much. (Oops.)

So, overall, probably great for someone who is very into mulled drinks, but a little too strong otherwise.
