52Teas 12 Teas of Christmas: Day 4!
I don’t know what kind of olfactory alchemy is at play here, but goodness—every tea in the holiday box has smelled incredible! They also manage to avoid perfume-y artificiality, which is quite a feat.
This one reminds me of a creamsicle… a very welcome reminder indeed. Brewed up, it’s got a lovely creamy mouthfeel that I can just about convince myself is reminiscent of marshmallows. I’m not quite sure whether I’m getting tangerine rather than a more generic orange, but regardless, it’s lovely.
This one definitely benefits from a few minutes of cooling before taking a sip. I thought I had over-steeped it because I wasn’t getting much flavor at first, but now that it’s cooled just a bit, it’s quite lovely and rich. I just love flavorful black tea blends, and this is a new favorite. So delightfully cozy!
