Sipdown!! (177)

When I was at Nina’s Paris, I was given teas to smell and asked what I thought they were before I was told the ingredients. By scent, this was instantly recognizable as a Christmas tea. However, unlike many other Christmas teas, this has apple as opposed to orange and flowers instead of spices.

Steeped, the smell is all cinnamon but tastewise the cinnamon mellows. There is a subtle apple cinnamon flavor. I am not picking up any florals but since I am not a huge floral fan, I am happy about that. This is not bad but I definitely prefer the other Nina’s Paris teas I have tried.

Thank you Sophie and Laurent at Nina’s Paris for the sample :)

The leaves are dark brown and uniformly cut, and contain pieces of apple and rose. While I waited for the tea to cool down, I took delight in the aroma – apple and cinnamon, with hint of vanilla – which smelled like apple pie with a generous amount of cinnamon. Since the liquor is dark, yet clear, I expected the base tea (black) to quite strong. Instead, I tasted a wonderful balance between the base and the other ingredients. Again, apple pie, but with a slight presence of brisk black tea. The flavor is medium-bodied and smooth.

This tea is delicious! I’m very glad I chose it as one of my samples. Recommended to be drunk with dessert (for the apple cinnamon) or with breakfast (for the base).

My last sample from Nina’s :) It smells sweet and cinnamony. The apple flavor isn’t as strong as the Marie Antoinette tea – I like the addition of cinnamon but wish the apple was more prominent. It seems like a mellow tea, nice to sip while watching TV :D

Thanks for the sample Marzipan!

This is good…the cinnamon isn’t too overpowering and the apple is nice and natural. I don’t get much vanilla, but overall the package is quite nice, with the mild black base and all.

Having this one this morning (afternoon?) to convince myself that no, I really don’t need that $12 tin of Christmas Tea from Kusmi that’s on Vente-Privee right now… Especially since I’ve never tried it before, so who knows if I’ll even like it… Ahem. Anyway! This lovely sample came from Marzipan, thanks again! Now, I know sprinkles in tea blends are often frowned upon, but I can’t help but find these tiny white snowflakes anything less than completely charming. Some things are just cute, okay?! Anyway, this tea has that familiar holiday fruit and spice combination.

The steeped tea smells lovely, like the canned cinnamon apple slices my grandma makes. Yum, I quite like this one! The flavor is sweet and somewhat light, and the cinnamon is in perfect harmony with the apple instead of overpowering it. I find I’m not tasting a lot of vanilla, but I’m not terribly upset by it (which is saying a lot, I love vanilla). I will definitely have to pick up some of this gem if I ever get around to a Nina’s order. Thanks Marz! :D

I kinda love sprinkles in tea because they are just too cute. There have been a couple teas that have them that I did not like but still felt happy seeing because SPRINKLES!

Sad to say, but this one is not a favourite. I was concerned about the rose petals in the blend, though thankfully they were not too strong….though they did border on making this blend too floral for me, as I have very little tolerance for floral teas, especially rose. Because of this, I was not able to pick up on the other flavours much…I’m just so super sensitive to florals. I was hoping this one was mild enough, and while mild, not mild enough for me.

It is a highly lovely tea to look at though, and I’m grateful for the chance to try it, so thanks VariaTEA for sending it. I’m not sure if I will make the last serving or set it aside for a swap.

VariaTEA

Oh no. I hoped it wouldn’t be too bad but when you don’t like something, that tends to be what stands out. At least you tried and know for sure now.

Amariel

It’s ok. I was hoping it wouldn’t be too floral, and it was just on the fence of being too floral and not floral.

thanks VariaTEA for sharing this one with me. Turns out, i prefer christmas teas from MF. There’s something about the spices in this one that has me wanting other christmas teas instead. Maybe it’s the way the vanilla is blending with them, or the sprinkles… lol that being said, I will be picking up more of this next winter to try and see if it’s just due to the fact that we’re coming out of the cold weather and my taste buds are looking for more spring/summer like teas. I have the same issue with chais as well heh they’re my fall/winter beverage!

VariaTEA

There is also the fact that this has apples where as most others use orange. That could also be altering the flavor profile.

I get the whole fall/winter beverage thing though.
