I really liked this tea! I added milk as well as honey to sweeten it and they were a perfect addition to this spicy tea. This tastes like christmas in a cup :)

Very nice tea. Begins boring, floral weak tea… Second infusion yields a slightly stronger floral flavour that has a slight lingering sweetness and a hint of cream. As the infusions go on, the sweetness and creaminess combination blossoms into a very satisfying tea that is almost as satisfying as eating candy or dessert!

15 sec rinse, 10 sec infusion + 3-5 sec per infusion

I got this from a little tea store up Yonge quite a ways north of Bloor that I found by accident a while ago. It was a bit pricey tea wise but I think good quality and they had a wide selection of teaware! I think 100g is the smallest amount they usually sell at once but I talked to her awhile and got her to sell me 50g of this and she even gave me a sample of some sencha too!
This tea smells milky and toasty and brews up a beautiful orangey gold colour. There is a cozy sort of sense to it. I find the taste initially just mildly grassy, then I get the same toastiness that’s in the smell. It feels very smooth and just a little creamy. Overall very enjoyable! I would like to try this gong-fu style as soon as I get a decent gaiwan.

Thanks SIL
This sort of tastes like Cinnamon Water. The black tea is gentle, not strong. The Cinnamon is that of a cinnamon powder type cinnamon. And maybe Clove. The aftertaste lingers a little funky but it’s ‘ok’.

Might be good to add to something – a food – maybe another tea? It’s a good starting point but was left a ‘tad’ wanting…

Glad I got to try it tho!

another tea to cross off the list of all teas!

this tastes much less delicious than it first did. It appears that my tastebuds have moved on since i first had it. Dropping the rating as this is much as TEB described it – cinnamon water, with a dash of orange. booo

mmmmm another christmas blend – this one from a local tea shop that doesn’t really sell online. this one has a bit more of the cinnamon and clove that i enjoy. Less of the orange/citrus flavour than the other which is a little disappointing. funnily enough…i might actually really enjoy missing the two that i have for the ultimate blend. :)

Pleasant, but uninteresting.
