I was pleasantly surprised by the A&D Holiday Blend. At first sip my thought was “Fah! I already bought this tea. Damn you Andrews! Damn you Dunham! Damn your pretty labels!” It seemed much too much like their Yunnan. But! Much to my delight there is a kind of fruity twinkly finish that more than distinguishes the Holiday Blend. A very nice black holiday tea (not a tea for depressing morbid holidays, but a black tea for the holidays) for gray snowy afternoons.

Additionally, I’m experimenting with cream and sugar for the first time (successfully). It rounds out the bitterness nicely. I’ve tried in the past and always been disappointed, but I’ve always tried with non-fat milk and it seems that you need something a little thicker if you want a more robust flavor.
