Nabo 2022 Advent Day 10: Bombär och Granater
We brewed this one in a teapot and it was so light I feared the flavour was completely diluted. Thankfully that wasn’t the case (though perhaps I could’ve used a little less water). Nonetheless, the fruit notes in this tea really came forward and didn’t disappoint. I would say I got mostly apple, but very fresh, sweet apple – I don’t think I’ve had that enjoyable of an apple flavour in tea before. The hibiscus wasn’t really present, save for the pale pink colour of the tea. There’s perhaps a whisper of pomegranate flavour that I do wish was a bit more present, but perhaps chilled it would come out more? I could see this being very enjoyable cold! I would order this one for our cupboard.
A.C. Perch 2022 Advent Day 11: White Symphony
Well, this one wasn’t finished. The rose was all that came through, sadly. The rose was definitely stronger in scent than flavour, but with so many teas behind I wasn’t in the mood to drink the whole cup of this one.
Also, I think the ingredients of this one have changed since the original notes. The booklet that comes with the calendar states: “White tea (China), pear pieces, flavoring, pomegranate pieces, rose leaves, cardamom, vanilla pieces”.
A.C. Perch 2022 Advent Day 9: Organic Black Christmas
We’re three teas behind, but hopefully can catch up over the weekend.
Ah yes, I recall this one from last year. While the base is smooth, the clove is the most prominent flavour, and a clove black tea is not really my favourite. Nonetheless an easy enough cup to polish off.
