On the twelfth day of Christmas, 52Teas gave to me…White Christmas!
Another one that smells gorgeous straight out of the packet. It’s actually reminding me of a mint creme. Peppermint is the dominant note, but there’s also an underlying sweetness from the marshmallow root. Oh, this is going to be good!
I brewed this for three minutes, while I finished sorting out my presents and clearing up wrapping paper. It smells sweet and slightly minty, and I’m getting a hint of chocolate that I assume is coming from the black tea base. Mouthwatering!
To taste, this is just as I imagined it would be. A perfect balance of sweetness from the marshmallow, coolness from the mint, and chocolatey depth from the tea base. It really is like drinking an After Eight, and it’s got to be the perfect after-dinner tea in existence. Particularly when the dinner concerned is larger than usual and distinctly overindulgent. I added a splash of milk, which I think has added an extra dimension of creaminess, but I would just as happily drink this without any additions at all. Honestly, I don’t think there could be a more fitting Christmas Day tea. Another perfect end to a perfect day!
