drank Holiday Blend by English Tea Shop
4825 tasting notes


For Christmas, I got a lovely box of tea from a friend. This was one of the teas in that box. Even though the ingredients are sort of ‘chai-ish’ sounding, it tastes less chai than it sounds. This is more of a gently warm, spiced tea that tastes more holiday than chai.

And that’s alright because this is a holiday blend … not a chai blend. :)

A mild black tea flavor … smooth. The spices are not overly aggressive. The fruit notes of apple and orange add a nice, pleasant flavor. Overall, it’s a nice holiday cuppa.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
