So, it’s after Christmas, and second bank holiday is today; so… Christmas time is already over for me. Happy New Year! everyone.

I was asked for brewing a pot for family again. I decided for this one and it seems I have last amount for one cup in. So, unfortunately, no sipdown. But soon!

I think that Izzy described this tea very well! Very interesting flavour and aroma. I get prunes (not dried plums Martin!) and mostly almonds. And then spices. I think mostly cinnamon and cloves. Maybe hints of cardamom.

I get raisins too, though not a major flavour. I agree with her saying its being a bit thin, but still quite creamy and enjoyable. I was expecting more from hibiscus, but I am glad it wasn’t that case.

I am impressed, I knew this company is doing a lot of blends. If it comes to actual orthodox teas, this brand isn’t that great. I had their teas ages ago. They weren’t that great, but honestly I am not sure now. Maybe those were a good batch, maybe that teas were stale, maybe… I prepared them wrong.

Happy New Year! :)

Happy New Year! The company name is Oxalis, and that is the name of a flower that grows here. I have some pink oxalis that I dug up at my husband’s grandmother’s house after she died, and some of the relatives laughed and said I was just digging up clover! Ha ha! The pink oxalis is very pretty and a nice herald of spring.

ashmanra Funny about oxalis. I lived in California for decades. Oxalis is an invasive garden pest there. It sends out runners and rhizomes so it can’t just be pulled up. It is nigh on impossible to eradicate. It does innocently look like clover and the flowers are very pretty. No doubt it is not a killer plant in other parts of the country, but in California, it is considered a weed and it can choke out native plants very rapidly. https://www.mercurynews.com/2010/12/06/master-gardener-get-a-jump-on-oxalis/

I have never cared about the company name, to be honest. I tried to search it and I think I have seen it over here too. It looks indeed pretty, though apparently it is invasive too.

Happy New Year Martin!

White Antlers: Same family, different oxalis! This one has pretty little pink flowers and hardly spreads at all. I think the plants I brought home from Granny’s are about the same size and have sat still in the same spot and they have been here about fifteen years.

Virginia Spiderwort, on the other hand, is EVERYWHERE! Fortunately it is pretty and is easy to remove, so I leave it where I want oretty blue flowers, cut it down when summer heat makes it get ugly, and it springs back up for more pretty flowers in fall!

White Antlers

ashmanra I think temperate California makes oxalis a ‘pest’ plant. I’d like to get some for my yard since we do have hard freezes here and it’s such a pretty little thing in the garden!

Martin Advent Day 25
I’d like to thank Martin for all the fun teas! There were some great choices in there, and even when I referred to a tea being not really my thing, I was still able to enjoy every single one. I’ll miss the surprise each morning!

As for this tea, it was a nice one to finish on due to the holiday spices in there. It was a little thin, and I didn’t totally love the fruit flavor, but I enjoyed what it was going for. I think I’m going to mix the leftovers from this pouch with some fruity leftovers from earlier in the advent, and create the perfect cidery tea – or maybe something weird…but we’ll see!

Martin Bednář

You are welcome! I am glad that I chose teas well and you were able to drink and enjoy them all. I guess the winner was Magic Aloe, which is sadly a tea I haven’t even tried.

I have to try this one too. I know there were tea which were wrose, some were better… I tried to make it average and I hope you liked to try some new flavours and found a few new favorites :).

AJRimmer

Magic aloe was definitely the winner! I hope you’re able to try it sometime! And there were definitely some B&B ones I plan to order in the future as well!

My Christmas eve eve tea! I brewed a scant teaspoon for a full 10 minutes, even though Martin suggests a 6 minute brew on the label (thanks for this tea!). I’m in the mood for some strong festive spice, and I didn’t want to use all this tea up in one go.

It has the red glow and tart aroma of a hibiscus dominated blend – which is definitely my cup of tea. Love it. But there’s also some spices (cloves, cinnamon) and other fruit notes (juicy sultanas and apple) swirling around in the steam.

Wow! Interesting flavour. It’s very light and not very hibiscus flavoured at all. Smooth and sweet. Notes of apple, apricot and sultanas develop a few seconds into the sip, with a hint of tartness coming in at the end with those berry hibiscus notes. But that’s super subtle – even if you dislike hibiscus, I reckon you wouldn’t be too upset with this tea.

Can’t say whether that’s because I only brewed a small teaspoon (perhaps I missed the large hibiscus pieces in the bag) or if that’s how the tea is designed to taste.

The spices are present, but mingled and more of a sensation than a flavour. Besides cinnamon, cloves and maybe nutmeg, I can’t decipher which specific spices are included.

Overall, this is a good festive tea. I might brew up the rest tomorrow, adding a shot of amaretto. I think the sweet almond flavour would work well with the fruits in this tea.

I think you are the first other person I’ve seen on here that likes hibi blends, now I don’t have to feel so alien all the time! I love these hibi-citrus-spice Christmas teas, too.

Martin Bednář

I am happy that you like this tea, called, “Christmas Treats” in translation and ingredients list is very, very long: apple, hibiscus, rose hips, orange zest, sultanas (raisins?), dates, apricots, prunes, figs, coconut, licorice, cardamom, rose buds and rose petals and vanilla.

I haven’t tried it yet! So, I am indeed glad you like it :) I think there isn’t anything wrong steeping it for 10 minutes instead of 6; 6 were recommended by the producer. It was such aromatic when I opened the sachet though. I wasn’t really sure if it will all work together well! Haha.

You are welcome ;)

Mastress Alita

I find with big chunky herbals like this, I use a ton of leaf and just leave the bag in the cup… infinite steep! :-)

Izzy

Yes, Mastress Alita! Hibiscus is yum. Sometimes I like to fish the hibiscus pieces out of my tea strainer (after brewing them as tea) and put them on top of my oatmeal with a generous teaspoon of honey :P Delish.
