102 Tasting Notes
This is probably the seventh tea I’ve had from the DavidsTea advent calendar. And probably the third tea I’ve actually had on its actual assigned day. I am SO BAD at this stuff! And don’t get me started on my 52teas’ 12 Days Of Christmas which I may or may not have ripped into every single packet four days into the thing…
Sigh. ANYWAY. I’m very picky about peppermint in my teas. I think it’s because peppermint tea reminds me of being in hospitals as a kid (I always got it with lunch). I can still drink it but I prefer if it’s mixed with something else. That being said, this tea is perfectly mixed (well, according to my tastes, that is). There’s the refreshing peppermint that is blends perfectly with the spicy black base. And the sprinkles are too cute!
Wow, I am gulping this down like there’s no tomorrow. I picked this up as a gift to myself for getting through hectic holiday shopping (which is my own fault since it’s Dec 22nd). The coconut and chocolate are definitely there (I’m glad I picked them up since they’re two flavours I have trouble tasting in teas). I added soy egg nog to it since it was the only milk substitute in the house and the spices are giving the tea a nice kick.

After a disastrous attempt at steeping a tea that was supposed to taste like chocolate, I brewed up a cup of this and hoped for better results.
This was lovely. Without milk, this had a nice, creamy texture. I had a bit of trouble finding the chocolate and I know this might sound odd, but I think I was looking for it a bit too hard? Because when I zoned out and took a sip, there it was in the aftertaste.
A very pleasant and light in all the right ways tea!
I’ve never had lime Jello before, but I’ve had many a lime Lifesaver and this tea tastes exactly like one (after I added a squirt of agave). I’m getting from this the same thing I’ve been getting from Frank’s other blends – a nice, full flavour. Because of it being the holidays and money being tight, I can only order a couple of the 12 Days teas and this tea will probably be one of them.
I’ve had this many times but this is my first time logging this. I’ve been resteeping a cup of this all day at work and as soon as I got home I brewed up a fresh pot of it. It seems I can’t get enough of this blend!
Nice and creamy with real tasting strawberries, I’m so glad I bought a tin of this.
