Martin Advent Day 2
I have my partner set out my advent tea for me the night before so I don’t catch any accidental peeks at future days. Last night he said that he really liked the sound of this one, and he’s picky with tea, so I was pondering that hint all night long! Somehow, this isn’t a B&B blend I’ve heard of, so I’m eager to try it! I usually drink fruity teas cold, but I decided to try this one warm first since apple cider is better warm. It’s pretty appley and tart with some mild spices. I iced the second half of my cup, and I think that improves it. The apple flavor tastes quite fresh and authentic, not fake or candylike. I feel like the spices came out a little bit muddled, and the blend could be improved if they picked just a spice or two and simplified it. Actually, maybe it’s the fermented lemon that I don’t love – a bit too sour for me. But I wouldn’t mind more of the fresh apple part of this tea!
