Sipdown, 233. I am using this opportunity (sickness) to drink down some old samples that I wasn’t super into. My abilities to smell are in and out, so I don’t want to sample any of my good teas (which unfortunately no Verdant reserve club sampling this weekend), but it’s a perfect time to sample others.

This is kind of an odd combination, being spicy and tart at the same time. This might go over better with some added sugar because the hibiscus is quite tart and a bit drying. Otherwise it’s got a berry flavor and then more traditional Christmas spices. Pretty decent but not something I would seek out.

Thanks to American Tea Room for this sample! I am getting to it a little late, but I am happy I got to it now! This is my first tea from American Tea Room.

I loved the little sample packet! Only flaw was that it wasn’t resealable. This is one of the reasons that it has taken me so long to get around to opening it, I didn’t have anywhere to store the leftovers! I was weary of how Christmasy this tea could be, since I relate Christmas directly to sugar and spice!

Once I opened the pack, the scent that greeted me was entirely Christmasy! In fact, it reminded me of the red scented candles that are generic Christmas scent. I asked everyone around me at that moment and everyone agreed that it smelled like Christmas. Wow! I would have never guessed Christmas tea could be managed without thick spiciness! It looked very pretty with large pieces of cranberry and pomegranate. The red and green in the dry tea made me wish it was Christmas time again.

I brewed it according to the suggested parameters. The resulting brew was baby pink, as far as I can remember, the pinkest tea I have seen so far! The smell continued to be very christmasy, with a hint of cranberry.

The taste unsweetened, was nothing spectacular. Sweetened, the cranberry stood out followed by a faint cinnamon aftertaste. I really enjoyed this cup of tea! I stand corrected! Christmas tea does not depend only on the mix of spices!

After this, I am going to have to get around to placing an order from American Tea Room!

Like the idea of a pink X-Mas tea :o) Sounds lovely, I agree that x-mas should not always be associated with spice, one of the reason I love Santas Secret from Davids Tea so much!

Try as hard as I may to not touch this tea since it was nearly finished. I decided to have my last cup of this most amazing tea.

I brew almost all teas for no less than three minutes and closest to five minutes and it is excellent. The aroma is of a floral bouquet and this scent fills the air. Since it is so very hot, I find I must sip tea very slowly…burning the tongue and what comes through in the flavors right away is the orange peel, cranberries and pomegranate. The cinnamon does not appear until tea is nearly cooling. And so begins my second infusion and third infusion as with the first infused one is met with orange peel with the cranberries merging as one almost.

As I have been sipping this for most of the day; I did not add the usual green tea bag to re-liven the flavors but opted to put one of my London Cuppa round teabags and I can attest that they blended quite nicely to a malty like floral drink. A sharper wine cooler, only served hot and brimming.

Thank you American Tea Room for sending this sampler my way. Pink Christmas is truly a delight. Now I am sad since I am thinking pink slip. Oh well. Kudos to good tea.

I must say I miss the fragrant notes of this tea. I have not had any as nice a smell at that. Well the Blueberries/blackberries were a tad close. thank you again American Tea Room; I am not quite international, not at all.

My sample came today. So naturally I had to try it out. I wasn’t impressed with the packaging only because I had to find something to keep it in. I wish they had a zip locked sample bag. But that was a small problem. On to the tea. When I opened the package it smelled very sweet which I loved. I loved seeing huge fruit pieces and even a whole star anise in my sample! Seeing what you are about to steep is always awesome in my book – sometimes you just can’t tell.

The taste is an interesting mix of tart and sweet that works for this tea. I also get some vanilla undertones on the finish. This adds an interesting mix to the flavor, but not a bad one at all. My husband thought it smelled like a really sweet bubble gum flavor and I can taste a hint of that. But like I said, not bad. I think this would be neat to try iced with a splash of ginger ale. I could be horribly wrong, but I’m going to try it anyway!

I’m going to try it iced tonight. :)

juliebeth

As the name might imply, it’s not your typical spicy, winter herbal infusion. It’s got a red berry sweet/tart kick, a bit of citrus, and a smooth vanilla overtone that I really enjoyed. Being an herbal, you can adjust it to be as strong or as subtle as you like. I got two cups out of my serving and it was enough to inspire me to try it in other ways – in recipes, adding it to seltzer or ginger ale. It doesn’t leave your mouth puckering from elements that are overdone – not too much citrus or berry that it overpowers, just enough spice from the star anise that it tastes festive, but not like you’re drinking another version of a chai.

So glad you enjoyed. We just made a mulled wine with this and IMHO it came out pretty great.

Can’t wait to get my sample.

Wow. I don’t know why, but for some reason the taste of this is reminiscent of—pardon me—vomit. Not sure what else I can say.

Mom likes it, so it’s all hers. I won’t be touching it again.

Yum!

I’m not usually one for fruity teas but this one is delish. It reminds me of the cranberry bliss bars starbucks make. There is a kind of white chocolate undertone that adds a sort of creamyness to the winter fruits.

Of course the fact it’s pink certainly raises my rating of it a few notches.

Since I didn’t like the star anise, I tried brewing up this tea without it. Not really an improvement, unfortunately; the liquorice-esque taste I disliked is gone, but now the liquor tastes much simpler. It’s mostly cranberry in taste, with a bit of cinnamon and orange. Maybe cranberry fans would like this more?

Got this as a sample with my previous order – my entire house seems wonderful and then tea is simply amazing. The flavor is very complex and seasonal. I just love this tea and will have to stock up before the end of the holiday season so that I have enough for the entire year.
