It’s ok – not my favorite holiday one.

Hit the lodge
What’s the best thing about a day of skiing? Hanging out in the ski chalet. Being outside in the snow is fun and all, but nothing beats thawing out in front of the fire with some good company. We recommend you reward yourself with this rich, fruity black tea. With big pieces of fig, orange peel and cinnamon, it’s just begging for a little splash of brandy. Hey, it’s cold out. You may as well indulge.

Very smooth. Buttery quality. Bitter aftertaste. The fig gives it a sweet aroma. I would liken the flavour to an artificial grape taste. Not all the flavours in this blend come out.
After finishing my mug and allowing the aftertaste to mingle with my salivary enzymes, I find the taste to be overpowering and not at all pleasant.
I don’t quite know how I feel about this tea. The first time, I tried it in the store, I absolutely loved it, so naturally I was thrilled when my sister received it in the winter collection. However, upon smelling it at home, i was immediately put off. The smell was incredibly strong of fruit, but with an odd undertone I couldn’t place- but it wasn’t appealing. I wasn’t a fan of the taste nearly as much at home either- I don’t know what happened but it wasn’t what I remembered at all.
Day 73 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge.
This was a little sample pack, and I made it in my 2-cupper.
Not my favourite tea by far. Was a little better with milk put in, but still tasted somewhat… off. I’m not sure precisely what it was, but the flavours just didn’t seem to come together pleasantly.
Well, you can’t win ’em all….
