I burned my finger for this one. It better be good :D

Most interesting looking one so far. The mixture is in general rather light. Has like some white little seeds with roots, then some big green seeds, then some round balls which i hope are some seeds to (even tho it really reminds me of sheep poo), cloves and some chunks of something that looks like soil, and a little bit of chopped green and black leaves.

Tea smells nice. Very nice even. It has nice yellow color. Doesn’t smell so much like cloves even tho it has more than that Christmas tea. Think it smells of cinnamon. Very very pleasant smell.

Tastes first very aromatic and yummy (cinnamon kick) then the spicy and peppery kick in. Kinda love it after this first sip :D Quite strong tho. There must be ginger in it. Lots of it…

Would be interesting to know what all the other stuff is. Gonna have to try to google it later.

Package says its usually mixed with milk and sweetener. So gonna try it with some cream and honey. To drink like this is good but i’ll steep it shorter next time. Or put less tea in it.
Mmmm yumm, milk makes it less strong and creamier and honey makes it sweet which is kinda opposite of what it was. Very good.

Nice surprise I honestly expected i won’t like it. And i was wrong. This one is a tea with a kick. Gonna leave it for some special moods ;)

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
