Labeled “White Winter” as day nine of Della Terra 2013’s 12 Days of Christmas box. At least, I THINK so. If not, I’ll move the review as appropriate.
The loose leaf smells quite sweet and coconuty, so if one or both of those invokes Santa — I mean Satan — himself for you, I’d avoid this one. It still smells pretty sweet once it’s brewed.

Initially, I just added a bit of almond milk but no sweetener., so I added a bit of sugar to see if it enhanced the flavors in the blend. It brought out the coconut a touch more but that was about it. I’ll have to make another cup with a bit of a longer steeping time to see if the blend develops a bit more
