Happy Christmas, friends! I hope everyone is enjoying the day with lots of food and family and friends! We opened presents earlier today and haven’t even started cooking yet since my Mom is busy playing with the iPad that I surprised her with. She barely even has a cell phone, so this is a big deal. We had banana cream cheese stuffed french toast this morning, so we’re still full from that. It’s been a good day. :)
I’ve had a few other teas this morning, but this was the new tea that I wanted to try today. I don’t think I’ve ever had plum pudding, but would like to try it after having this tea. This tea is very lightly flavored, and very smooth. It’s a nice relaxing tea for Christmas afternoon. I can taste fruitiness, rum and spices and it’s becoming more flavorful as it cools.
-Dry blend has very large black and brown tea leaves with pieces of orange peel and small blue and orange petals.
-Dry leaves smell of sweet fruit, spices and rum. Tea liquor aroma is fruity with a hint of sweet spices.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium orange yellow color.
-Light malty and spicy flavor and finish. Fruity plum and rum aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A smooth cup. Light fruity flavor with a hint of rum and spices.
