drank Christmas Tea by Gurman's
1799 tasting notes

My girls bought this for me when they were in Dublin because they knew how much I liked the teas from Gurman’s on the last trip. In addition, when some of us in the US wanted tea that wasn’t available on their website, they made it available to us. I thought that was great customer service.

The ingredient list was pretty exciting to me because it had all of the things I love in a Christmas spice sort of tea. Other Christmas teas have disappointed me sometimes by having an astringent or finicky base or artificial tasting orange flavor with a bite. This is very nice, however, and tastes well balanced to me. The orange is clean and fruity, the almond is soft and smooth, the ginger is not bitey, the cinnamon is light, the clove is peeking at me just the right amount, And the cardamom is sweet and exotic.

I am drinking this with no milk or sugar, but for those who take sugar in their tea I suspect this one would be super sweet and Christmas-y. Well done!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
