This is my go-to blend on any day. The green tea of this blend is definitely more pronounced than the black tea component, which gives it that floral note at the beginning of enjoying the pot. However, the further along in the pot that I drink, I notice the floral becomes more mingled with a smoky background.
Why Hello Christmas Tea.
I received this as a gift from my bestfriend and tea influence. I like Murchie’s Teas, they are affordable and who can’t help but support a long running company that is Canadian! (I think it is at least??)
At first sniff: It’s zippy, with smells of oranges, cloves and spice. Definitely nailed the “Christmas” time smell. It seems like it could be a very potent cup of tea if over-steeped.
At first sip: Warning – I am still sick and my tastebuds are still a bit off. I think I brewed this too strong. I did it for 6 months and I should have done it for 5 at the most. It’s very astringent, but the smells translate nicely into the cup. I had mine with milk and sugar and was not disappointed.
I will have to re-rate when my sniffer and taste returns fully.
I am drinking this because I was up until 4 to watch the new Sherlock ep (the only chance I had) and now my eyes are heavy all day and I need this to help wake me up. I added milk and maple agave as a treat.
I’m rewatching the Empty Hearse right now because I missed some of the dialogue and that’s a shame because the entire episode was brilliant.
Just brilliant. I am fan-girling SO HARD!!!
One of Sil’s offerings in the BBBBox.
This is very bright, very tart, very ceylon.
Initially, it set off an alarm in my mouth, but once you get past the initial shock, there’s some body to it, kind of sweet. A very citrus mouth, I think this might be better cold. Definitely not a morning tea, for sure. The astringency would make me wretch.
Sipdown on this one. I sent this to the ladies in the BBB Box mostly for a play on the names of the teas. They received a breakfast blend and then an afternoon blend. :) Next trip is going to be Fancy teas!
This helped solidify in my mind that Murchie’s teas are only for me if i want a a nice delicious tea with milk and sugar. It helped as well that i finally figured out i need to steep this at a bit cooler temperature since there’s some sneaky darjleeing in there.
Overall, not a fantastic tea but it’s well enough for the small quantity that let me play with it and share it. I don’t think it’ll be a super huge win with the ladies, but that’s part of the fun! we get to share experiences and some are wins and some are less wins hahaha
Uhh, JustJames, I think I have a problem.
Thanks for that. It required some negotiating to find this tea in the cupboard.
I actually really like this smokey tea. I didn’t think I would, until Sil suggested maple syrup, and then I ended up with Too Much whipping cream. Maple whipping cream + Russian Caravan tea = match made in heaven.
This tea probably isn’t the best quality out there, but I’m enjoying it and that’s what counts. Right? It will definitely be a void in my cupboard when it’s done, but what to fill it with…
Sadly I’m all out of this – a sample box I got at Murchie’s in Victoria over the summer. Tea was one of the highlights of my trip! I doubt I will order more since shipping is $10 to the States. Nice with a touch of soymilk but doesn’t need sugar, IMO. Highly enjoyable morning tea.
Afternoon tea latte after a crazy long day or trying to take mom shopping atthe outlets. Found a crazy good deal on a suit for her, which she needs and isn’t a fussy duddy suit. Exhausting, but a good day to do it as it was a bit cloudy. Overall just having a great time out here. This morning we got to watch the pelicans pass over the water as well as the herons. So good.
This is so perfect today with a dash if milk and sugar. So warm and comforting! I thought I had a lifetime supply of this, but it might not last the winter.
I’m having such an awesome weekend too. Today we are relaxing by reading and computer games. We’re totally dystopian with Prison Architect and Papers Please on the computer, while I read some angsty fic.
Tea of the morning here, I had a fabulous weekend with my Sweetie but now it’s back to real life…
This is a really great blend of black teas esp. for a teabag! I accidentally oversteeped it but it still seems good to me. It reminds me of my lovely vacation in Victoria B.C. Hopefully I will go back there someday. See previous notes for more details.
This shines with the promise of strawberries and lemon, but once steeped it kind of loses its appeal.
I definitely prefer it cold steeped or flash chilled over hot, but it’s a little chilly right now and I don’t want cold. I want hot lemon strawberry goodness.
Still, it’s decent. I think as a hot “iced tea” herbal I prefer Baywater’s Cranberry Orange Chili Pepper. It’s more versatile. And so good with cranberry honey.
