Just had a good pot of this one. I like it because unlike many other Christmas-themed teas, it is not overwhelmed by cinnamon, or orange peel, or some unidentifiable “spice” flavor. It is balanced between the citrus and spice elements and based on good quality black tea. This is another one that does quite well with milk and sugar, and though I haven’t tried it that way, I imagine it would be fine iced as well.

Bio

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
