100 tasting notes

Advent calendar tea (oh man, I am SO. BEHIND). It’s funny because I just reviewed another tea and said that I couldn’t get past the taste of cloves in it, but the cloves in this tea didn’t bother me one bit. In fact, I really enjoyed this tea.

I had this in a black mug so I couldn’t enjoy the sparkly swirl (boo). I love the combination of the cinnamon and orange peel (those are the strongest tastes I’m getting). The vanilla makes it so smooth but the clove gives it a nice sharp contrast. I didn’t have to add milk or sweetener because it already felt so full without it.

I can’t say this about many of the other teas I’ve tried from the calendar so far, but I think I may purchase this once my sample runs out!

Bio

I’m a queer lady in my late twenties who loves cats, comic books, travel, and photography. I fell in love with tea in late 2011. My “tea corner” is now threatening to overthrow the kitchen! I’m the worst at writing so I’m sorry about the babbling messes my reviews will most likely be.

DAVIDsTEA was my first introduction to loose leaf tea and I’ve remained pretty loyal to them (especially since they’re a Canadian company so their shipping price isn’t ridiculous and delivery is speedy!) I’ve recently ventured into teas by 52teas, Della Terra Teas and the Metropolitan Tea Company.

The first teas I really enjoyed were dessert ones (and I still overloaded them with sugar, blech!). I still like them but now I’m trying to get into less-sugary teas. I loooooove me a good genmaicha and have a weakness for most oolongs.
