drank Noël by Mariage Frères
80 tasting notes

This is a tea for the holidays! It is heavy in flavor and screams for a dash of milk. I taste orange, cinnamon and perhaps clove… who knows! It possesses many if not all the spices I use as a base in my oatmeal cookies. But it has the familiarity of a cinnamon and spice air spray by Glade and this to some might be quite the turn on. Who knows?

At any rate, after a return from sea and seeking comfort in a cup of tea at home… I should have stuck to the tried and true. However being me, I tried a new path… or tea. I shall try this again when the grumbles of recent travels have calmed and I am sure to provide some insightful remarks.

I can safely say that despite its wild taste of holiday festivus, it is a pleasant tea not bitter or grumpy. Very unlike its taster… I am sure it will forgive me. :)
Until my second cup then…

Well, it started off sounding like you enjoyed it. I mean same ingredients you use in your cookies! Welcome back!

Thanks! I am glad to be back… but a bit exhausted. It is great when you can just go home every night. And I found out my brother has a new daughter. Happy. But she isn’t doing too well. Sad. But he’s being brave and kind… just great really. I hope she pulls through.

So, sip your tea and send a silent prayer that she pulls through the whatevers the hospitals are trying to identify… that is, if you are into the prayer thing.

Your brother having a new daughter calls for congrats, but then I read the next line and that’s so sad =(. I’m sure everything will be alright. Hopes for the best.

Alicia

It’s heart breaking because I want to fix it, whatever it is, but can’t. I want to say the right things and don’t. So I am sending him and his family some tea and sympathy.
