I’m mixed on this tea. I like the taste and the spiciness to it (the cloves) but it makes me think of potpourri. And I’m pretty sure I’ve been in a bathroom that had this exact potpourri in a basket on top of the toilet tank.

So on one hand – spicy Christmas in a cup. On the other – toilet tank.

See, when you say things like “toilet tank” and Christmas, and my brain is still prone to wandering like it does before noon [or all day, actually], it goes to places like Santa Claus urinating. And if he were to exist, would he use other people’s bathrooms along the way? Or…pee off the side of the sled?

But the Holidays are my second favorite part of the year [after fall], so I would probably like this one. Santa peeing associations aside.

I did the same thing (potpourri) with a Stash Christmas blend I didn’t like … but in a simmer pot and tea candle in the living room.

Toilet tank = Not something you necessarily want to associate with tea! XD

It’s the smell that I really associate with a toilet tank. And that doesn’t make it sound any better….

Thankfully, the actual taste has no toilet connotations to it. Though it does make me want to make a clove orange.

And now I’m seriously contemplating Santa’s bathroom habits on Christmas. After all, he eats a lot of milk and cookies. The guy’s gotta make a pit stop somewhere.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
