338 Tasting Notes
Day #14 of the advent calendar! Another new tasting experience for me, yay! Whatever blend is going on here totally works – because, separately, rooibos, cinnamon and chai are not really my favourite tea ingredients (flavour is almost too bold for my taste). But mix them together in this one, add a couple of other things (which mut be the ‘magic glue’) and a splash of milk and this is absolutely delightful. I actually think I may even need to steep it for a bit longer next time.
Day #12 of the advent calendar! A semi-new taste experience for me, as I’ve only ever had this flavour once before back when it first came out (and then it was iced, not hot like I’m drinking now). I do appreciate the fruity green teas, so I enjoy this one. It’s not my favourite, but I’ll definitely be sad when my tin is empty.
Day #11 of the advent calendar! Another totally new taste for me, I’m pleased to say. I do enjoy the lemon/mint combination this one has (my love for Yellow Dragon will tell you that), through there is all of those other elements that give it a different enough taste from Yellow Dragon. I’m not a huge hibiscus fan, but at least in my mug right now I am tasting very little of it, and it’s not enough to deter my opinion. And I also enjoy the scent of the dry leaves. So, overall, this one gets a thumbs up from me, as well.
Day #8 of the advent calendar (so it’s a couple of days late…). I really like this blend (as I do love my fruit)! My only hesitation from buying it again is the price (curse you, white teas, for being so bloody expensive). This is one I will re-steep, and I actually laced it with leftover Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait this time.
Day #10 of the advent calendar! This one tastes similar to Red Velvet Cake, in my opinion, though less sweet. I don’t drink a lot of black tea blends straight, so I added a splash of milk and to me, the flavour improved. I also enjoy the pineapple flavouring I’m getting out of this, which was unexpected. I’m not a huge fan of cake teas (the sweetness gets to me after a while), but I think I’d like this one occasionally. All in all, a decent choice for a snowy December day.
