drank Rum Raisin Biscotti by Tea Forte
2388 tasting notes

Greetings from the middle of a sunbeam on my living room floor. I got up to second-steep this tea and Tazo snitched my chair for a nap. (Cats clearly run this house.)

Among the jing-tinklers and tum-tinglers under the tree was a really glamorous presentation-box sampler of Tea Forte sachets, and this one caught my eye first. The first steep was nicely deep and dark and raisiny, with some truly authentic biscotti flavor. There’s chamomile in here, too, says the label—I always like it balanced against black tea.

I’ve dispensed with 2/3 of the second round and have to hunt around a little harder for the raisin flavor, although it’s still viably present.

Hope you’ve found a sunbeam to bask in today, physically or otherwise. This dark, dreary world needs a lot more light. Merry Christmas.
