I purchased this just after the sale that was announced in the forum. How could I resist free shipping and 20% off? I couldn’t. The package arrived today – oh happiness!
When I opened the tin, it looked very much like the Holiday Blend of the previous year. When I read through some of the tasting notes here, I noticed that others have compared it to the holiday blend… so as I sit here waiting for my Breville to brew the Elixir, I wonder how similar it will taste to the Holiday Blend. As I have no more Holiday Blend with which to compare it, I will have to go from memory… but since I had some just before the holiday, I think my memory will be pretty good.
Yes, I can see some similarities to the Holiday Blend, but, this one seems a bit smokier, and perhaps a bit less “creamy” than what I noticed from the Holiday Blend. I actually think I may like this a bit better than the holiday blend, or at the very least, just as much.
I am happy that I have this blend … but even happier that I was able to take advantage of the special sale to acquire it.
