drank Holiday Tea by Harney & Sons
1610 tasting notes

One of the teas my boyfriend gave me for X-mas (I suppose I’ll keep him afterall ~_^).

The tea, both dry and when it’s brewing, smells likes one of those oranges with cloves stuck in it (is there a name for those?). The liquor is surpringly light, starting with a slightly sweet, orangy flavour and ending with a bit of light, gentle spice (I’m thinking cloves with a bit of cardamon and cinnamon).

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

The oranges-with-cloves are called pomanders :)

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
