A New Tea created for the 12 Teas of Christmas box for 2019!

As our 6th TEA of Christmas & the second original blend for our box – allow me to introduce our Christmas Tea Cake! This tea not only tastes like Christmas, it also looks like Christmas with it’s bright green Chinese Sencha leaves & bits of beautiful freeze-dried red raspberries.

For my Christmas Tea Cake “recipe” I imagined mini cinnamon vanilla cupcakes topped with a green-tinted vanilla buttercream that was then topped with a bright red raspberry. And that’s just exactly what I taste as I sip on this cuppa. Sweet, silky Chinese Sencha blended with vanilla beans, cinnamon bits & freeze-dried raspberries. It’s sweet, it’s creamy and vanilla-y, it’s warm from the cinnamon notes, and it has a nice presence of raspberry. Really yummy!

It’s organic, it’s VEGAN, it’s gluten-free & allergen-free! You’re gonna love this one!

organic ingredients: green tea, raspberries, cinnamon, vanilla beans & natural flavors

Grabbed this as my next packet of old holiday tea to sip down. The dry leaf has a raspberry cream aroma.

Steeped 2.5g in 350ml 175F water for 2 minutes. I’m still getting a raspberry cream aroma from the cup, though it is quite delicate, and I can small the sharpness of the grassy green beneath it. The green tea base has a nice fresh, grassy taste, with just a hint of a vegetal pea note, rather than the musty-funk I get from older green tea. The fruitiness I’m getting is more of a soft/sweet berry flavor and is lacking the sort of tang that would define that closer to raspberry for me. There is also a soft vanilla/cream note. Overall, the flavoring is quite gentle here, but this is also an older tea for me. I can sort of get a “raspberry cupcake with vanilla frosting” vibe, I just wish it was sharper/more pronounced.

Still a satisfying afternoon cuppa.

This was a tea I’ve enjoyed so far but being a green tea, not one I reached for often so I’m content saying goodbye. This last cup isn’t as good as the others though and I’m blaming the broken green tea bits at the bottom of the bag making this a little grassier than usual. That’s unavoidable though and not particularly the tea’s fault. Aside from that, I like the cinnamon and this is a bit cake-y. It’s also generically fruity today which is fine but nothing special.

The flavor here is really pleasant – just a bit fruity with some other spices in there. I’m having it a little warm, and it’s really nice. It’s just the perfect combination with this green tea. The flavor lingers in my mouth. I’m glad these green teas keep turning out well because the way I steep them is somewhat chaotic.

Creamy, a hint of cinnamon, and maybe raspberry. It’s tasty even though I can’t quite pinpoint all the flavours.

On the sixth day of Chrisrmas . . . this is another new blend for our 12 Teas of Christmas. As I mention on my blog, what I envisioned with this tea is a cinnamon cupcake topped with a green tinted vanilla buttercream frosting topped with a raspberry. The raspberry isn’t supposed to be a strong flavor, just an accent on top of a sweet, cinnamon-y, vanilla-y, cake-y kind of taste. I really love the way this one turned out.

#adventageddon Day Eighteen – 3/6

I was surprised by how much I liked this one – and I think it’s a new tea!? It’s decently simple in terms of composition – green tea, raspberry, and presumably flavouring. However it was really smooth and mellow, with a nice buttery pastry type of note! I liked that it was sweet and a touch fruity but not dramatically so. The green tea was also really palatable for me, which was surprising. I think the flavour could potentially come off as flat, but the impression I got was more that it was a really good “canvas” type of flavour, meaning that it was perfect to do your own additions (milk, sugar, honey, etc.) to customize to taste preferences…
