Nabo 2023 Advent Day 1: Sweet Chai of Mine

We had kind of a rough year and I wasn’t feeling at all festive and didn’t order any advents. But, we were delayed at the Toronto airport for 12 hours on 30-Nov and I emailed Nabo on a whim to order these advents for when we got back. I’m feeling much better that I ordered them and now I can join in the advent fun with everyone here and Lex and I an enjoy them together at home. :)

Ooh this is an interesting chai. The lemongrass isn’t coming across as lemongrass, but is adding a lightness and smoothness to this cuppa. Quite lovely. The cinnamon is dominant , mixed with the pink peppercorns to make it almost candy cinnamon heart-esque.

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug. I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted/green and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens (mango or pineapple, yum!).

Likes:
Raspberry, strawberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, blackcurrant, redcurrant, fig, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, jasmine, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
