Adventaggedon Day 20 – Tea 6/6
This seems like a missed opportunity to have more fun with the blend name – why not something like “Weasley’s Christmas Jumper” that was a more direct reference!? Also, a Cardigan is not the same thing as a Jumper/Sweater – but I digress…
The tea itself was very nice – I made it up for the second half of my Home Alone watch tonight and it was sweet, cozy and festive – just the perfect pairing! It’s very similar to the Gryffindor blend from earlier in the advent, but caffeine free and a little bit more of a red apple than a green able flavour. Sweet, bright and juicy though – with the apple coming first and stronger and then the sweet cinnamon notes following up and finishing out the sip. Pleasant, and a great addition to today’s rotation.
I think I like the Gryiffindor blend (blanking on the actual name right now) better because it’s more complex and nuanced, but this is one of the nicer apple cinnamon rooibos/honeybush teas I’ve tried, and I prefer that it’s more apple and less cinnamon. Geek + Tea just really seems to know how to nail a good apple flavour in their blends!
