drank Christmas (Rois Mages) by Kusmi Tea
2345 tasting notes

This was part of a sampler set I got from Kusmi last year and evidently I never logged or rated this tea so here goes!

Tea of the morning. :) Smells like orange and spices in the tin. Leaves are dark, small and slender. I’m not generally a huge fan of orange spice teas, but this isn’t bad. I’m finding it to be a bit thin on flavor but the orange is nice and juicy. I detect a bit of vanilla but it is light on some of the other spices you might expect in a blend like this, such as clove. I tried it both with additions and without and it seemed fine either way, but i just can’t imagine drinking this on a regular basis.

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
