drank Christmas Tea by Twinings
1112 tasting notes

This morning I was straightening my tea cabinet, and came upon these two bags that Jaime sent to me – thankfully!!! – because if I hadn’t found them by the day before New Year’s Eve I would have had to wait until next Christmas to drink them! (I’m serious!) I put them right in front of my tea kettle so I would remember to have them for afternoon tea – and here we are!

I think it’s really tasty! I’m having it with milk and sugar, and I’m experiencing a definite spiced tea creamcicle thing :) The orange must be blending with the milk – and it’s nice!! I’m completely enjoying it. No bitterness, and the spices and flavorings are natural tasting and not cloying.. Another bagged tea which I think is fantastic! I would totally buy this next holiday.

Thank you thank you thank you Jaime for yet another super yummy tea!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
