From DAVIDsTEA

Falling snow, popping chestnuts, cold hands and noses…yep, winter has arrived. But don’t worry, we have the perfect tea to warm you up all December long. Cinnamon, apples, raisins, almonds, and hibiscus combine for a tea that is sweet, tart, and earthy. And beet pieces make it as nice and rosy as a caroler’s cheeks. So hop in your sleigh, snuggle up, and pass a thermos around. It’s lovely weather for a Sleigh Ride together.

At first smell, I didn’t like it at all. I didn’t think it would be a tea I would like. But since it was the first day in my advent calendar, I decided to give it a try. I was surprised that I actually didn’t mind it. It tastes sweet, cinnamony, and it has a bright red colour to it. It’s not a favourite, but it was okay.

I was in the mood for a nice creamy dessert tea today so I grabbed this…. I’m not sure why because its not at all what I was looking for.
It’s apple base is fairly evident, a little bit nutty but more fruit flavors stick out to me. This is kind of similar to the Wegmans Almond Ode to Joy (at least I think that was the name?); definitely not going to pick up more of this.

Sleigh Ride has such a delicious smell to it. It literally reminds me of Christmas morning. The first time I came across this tea, I literally sat there for a good couple of minutes just soaking up the smell. It has a sweet smell that really reminds me of gingerbread cookies.

I should know better by now, but I always have this assumption that when teas smell sweet, they’ll taste sweet as well. Definitely not the case with Sleigh Ride. It was fairly tart which was a bit of a shock to my taste buds. It really shouldn’t have been all that surprising since Sleigh Ride does contain hibiscus after all.

I wouldn’t say this would be my go-to winter tea, but it definitely is a festive tea. With it’s dark red liquor and strong cinnamon and hibiscus flavours, it really is a type of tea I would only drink during the winter months.

Sipdown from last night!

I took the entire sample of this that I got for Christmas and made a pot to drink while watching some movies on Netflix. This wasn’t bad, but it was very heavy on the hibiscus, and smelled an awful lot like Forever Nuts. I like Forever Nuts, but since it’s not a seasonal blend, I have no reason to try and hold onto this tea.

Alpine Punch on the other hand? That shiz is delicious.

The words trail mix come to mind… I got this for someone else who is very “christmasy” and this morning I decided to sit down and make this for them. The tea looks like trail mix, and it doesn’t remind me of Xmas very much (or a sleigh ride). The brew is a pretty pink color, which is nice. The flavor is pretty bad. The brew begins with a sour fruit taste, and it stays that course throughout. I noted a strange sweet note in the background. I didn’t finish my cup and poured the rest out. This is not my thing.

This smells EXACTLY like DavidsTea’s Forever Nuts which is an all-time favourite. Hibiscus teas generally aren’t my favourite but this one is balanced really well with the cinnamon and rounded out with notes of almond and a hint of apple.

Tart, light, and fruity hibiscus and apple are at the core of this tea. Cinnamon adds a warm heart, and the popcorn gives the tea body and a silky mouthfeel. This tea is warm, delicious, and full of holiday spirit.

To those who find it too tart I say- bah, humbug!

Time to play 24 days of tea logging catchup. I’ve been taking pics of each one and posting it to Instagram. I got a new phone about 3 weeks ago and I can manually adjust the camera settings so it’s really fun to photograph tea.

I have had this one before, I probably have a prior note somewhere but I didn’t think to check. But I do no I did not at all care for it before. This time around, it’s a bit more tolerable, but not something I would seek out.

It’s a bit like a fruit punch, but with a different flavor to it. I mean, it’s just a weird tea…fruity, then with nuts, but not nearly as good as Forever Nuts and then there’s the popped rice.

I think I will use the rest for iced tea just out of curiosity.

I really wanted to like this one! It was better on the second cup than the first… very tart though so I think I’d have to be in the mood to drink this tea. I will probably give it another chance and try it with a bit of sugar next time.

1/24 for my tea advent calendar. Unfortunately we started December off with this really awful tea. It had a deep purple colour and the odd tastes of cinnamon and pineapple. Nothing says christmas like beet root, am I right? Anyways did not like this tea.
