1766 Tasting Notes
It’s midnight so I’m allowed to open my Christmas present! I chose these 12 Days of Christmas teas as my Christmas present from J (as he’s not big on Xmas and this takes the pressure off him, while allowing me to get more tea!)
I thought it would be fun to see how many of these I can drink on Christmas! So here’s the first one! It’s really pretty – you can see all the detail in the pic I uploaded. It doesn’t seem like your regular Pumpkin Pie tea, and I’ve had a few of those…
It doesn’t taste like pumpkin pie – it tastes fruity and light and really refreshing. As it cools a little, the flavours shift – the light flavours remind me of the airiness of pumpkin pie, but it doesn’t have the nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger spices that I expected.
Call me crazy, but it’s almost more lemon meringue than it is pumpkin pie.
I like it though! It’s a nice start to Christmas!
Thanks Janelle for letting me try this one! (167)
It’s not a bad tea, but this blend isn’t as memorable as Santa’s Little Helper or Read My Lips. I do like the banana walnut combo, and I can actually taste the calendula too, but it is a little salty, like Tea Sipper mentioned in their review.
I’m still happy I tried it!
ETA Oh. Oh, YUCK. As it cools it really tastes like Play-Doh. No exaggeration. Swooooosh
I drank this one earlier without really knowing what it was. It smelled sweet, rich and a little spicy and tasted fruity and… heavy?
When I looked it up I realized it was orange citrus and once I had that in my head it was very obvious to my taste buds. Whoops. I need to get better at identifying it without knowing what I’m drinking. :P
Overall this is a nice tea, but I think I’d prefer an actual EG to this one. Thanks Sil for letting me steal a scoop!
