Yes, another fixing of this Miesna Christmas Tea. I find this day calls for warm cider and since I don’t have warm cider, I am having a cup of this tea instead. I open the little crate box by sliding the wooden lid off and remove one tea bag from the foiled package. I must say it is heady in that it smells of cider…there is tartness in the air and it is lovely.

I put the bag in my cup and pour in the boiled water and leave it to steep for five minutes. After which I take the tea to view tea’s color and it is does resemble that of apple cider with that caramel color or cinnamon.

I sip and sip the tea slowly since it is very hot and spicy seeming to be laced with cinnamon, cloves and apple. The tea is both sweetly and tart with slight drying effect which is quenched with more sips of this tea.

I like the tea’s color and aroma and taste is most pleasing in that it’s both sweet and tart and the tea warm you all over. This is a lovely tea and not just for Christmas.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
