I won’t babble too much about this tea, but I will definitely strongly recommend it! :D
To me, this is a very seasonal tea and is one that I just adore around Christmas time. When you open the bag and breathe deeply, you just get a wonderful Mulled Wine and Christmas smell that really lingers for ages. The tea itself is really good too – I brew it for a quite a long time (6’), which does make it a little bitter (but honestly just a little), but for me this isn’t a problem. With its delightful huge pieces of orange, whole cardamom pods, peppercorns and bits of apple (amongst other ingredients), the tea becoming slightly bitter just brings out the orange/citrus and really makes the tea almost like Mulled Marmalade. It’s so delicious :D
If you’re brewing this tea for the first time, I’d deffo really mixing the bag up before you take your 2 tsp per “mug” (10-11 oz/300-300 ml) (and I’d deffo use that much). Or, what I usually do, is take 1 tsp from near the top of the bag (full of spice pods and orange) and then one tsp from near the bottom of the bag (full of the lovely black tea and peppercorns).
This is the only chai-style, heavily spiced tea that I’ve ever really taken to. Usually, they just don’t get strong enough for me. But this one is a delight. And it is so festive. If you have access to Suki Teas (I’m pretty sure their website delivers fairly far-and-wide), I would strongly recommend treating yourself to a bag of this for the Christmas period.
