OK Kay, one exam to go, you can do it!
Today’s companion tea – the wonderfully playful Elf Help. With a little dash of honey, just because. For some reason, I find it to be a tad tart today, not sure what may have gone wrong. Perhaps I should buy some of the new batch. (I’m still finishing off the huge amount I bought last year, just in case…). Yep, I’ll definately do that, so I can ‘vote’ for a tea I love, and because it seems to be the underdog this year compared to Santa’s Secret and Oh Christmas Treat.
I have a feeling my post-exam DT celebrations will be a bit pricey this year…
I am in a desperate fit of procrastination (hence me being on Steepster instead of working on my term paper). At least logging makes my procastination a bit less… useless. Right?
On to the tea (second steep).
First impressions – The loose leaf smells like cranberries, oranges and all things Christmas. Well, minus the turkey. It is a beautiful tea full of color and texture. I would decorate my room in this tea.
Flavor – MMMMMmmmmmm. Love it. While there are plenty of fruits in this tea mix, the fruity aromas are balanced by a strong and slightly bitter green tea. If I really try, I can pick out the orange, cranberry and raisins, but I’d much rather enjoy the wonderful blend that it presents.
Loveability – All of my newly converted to tea friends didn’t understand how Elf Help is part of the winter collection. “But, Kay’s been drinking it all year!”
Please, everyone, buy some so that DT has reason to bring it back every year. Pretty please?
