From Simple Loose Leaf

The delightful seasonal flavor of gingerbread meets our strong Assam Black Tea for a delicious, nutty holiday blend reminiscent of a cookie flavor in a cup. With its high caffeine content, Santa’s Gingerbread makes a perfect morning tea. It’s warm flavors are a perfect match for baked goods. This tea is excellent iced and takes well to milk, honey or sugar.

Assam Fine Tippy Golden Flower Orange Pekoe Black Tea, Irish Cre?me Flavor, Ibarra Chocolate, Cinnamon Chips, Ginger C/S, Cloves C/S

This is one of the teas the Sil & I got in a box from Awkward Soul, thank you! It’s been hours since I drank it, & all I can really say is that I enjoyed it. I underleafed a bit, but that’s ok, cuz there’s enough for me to try again, & then I’ll forward the rest of the sample on to my Steep Sister.

yum, this tea is good even when it’s not a holiday! Santa’s gingerbread holiday aka Gingerbread Cookie tea.
I added some g. rock sugar while steeping to encourage more of that cookie taste!
Ugg, I’ve have been to jiujitsu for like 3 weeks. Vacation + sick time. I’m gonna suck! I went in Honolulu, but I didn’t do much. Here’s to tea energy keeping me alive!

I would like to thank Andrew at Simple Loose Leaf who provided me with a $50 credit to use towards their subscription service. This was the third tea that I was sent in my six month plan.

This tea didn’t immediately wow me, in fact, I found it a little lacking at first. It had a subtle creamy texture, likely from the Irish Creme flavoring, but the Assam base seemed to mask the flavor of the cloves, ginger, and cinnamon. I was disappointed because I really expected those to be the dominant flavors of the tea, they certainly are in the gingerbread I make. Despite this, there was one thing that really blew my mind, especially since it’s something I find lacking in most gingerbread teas. I could taste a molasses-like flavor in this tea and it wasn’t even listed in the ingredients. Are you wondering why this is important? Molasses is one of the key ingredients in making gingerbread cookies, without it all you have is a nice spiced cookie. I really enjoyed the deep earthy flavors of this tea and its strong resemblance to mild flavored molasses. This fact certainly changed my opinion of this tea, but it wasn’t the only thing.

Had I reviewed this tea several weeks ago when I first received it I might have written something completely different about it, but there is something special that changed my opinion. I received a tin of cookies in the mail as part of a holiday swap, they were the most delightful tasting gingerbread cookies I’ve had in awhile. And guess what, they tasted just like this tea. They also tasted completely different than the gingerbread cookies I make myself. This is where personal bias really comes into my tea reviews. Sometimes I have an idea in my head of what I want a tea to taste like, but am disappointed when it doesn’t resemble the idea I have in my head. As a writer it can be very difficult to distinguish between what is bias, what is fact, and what is opinion. I try to be as honest as possible in my writings regarding all of these things and honestly, I really enjoyed this tea. I think it is a great addition to my already full holiday line-up.

I drank this because I heard it was the last day of winter today and that means it should be the end of winter teas!

It was ok, but didn’t grab me. Maybe it would if I had it 3 months ago.

There’s a small part of me that thinks I should post on every tea I shared with you….just for funnies lol

nom nom nom. this one is pretty tasty. I don’t think i’d order it again, or maybe just one a year sort of thing but it’s a pretty good gingerbreadish sort of tea. This is another one from terri from awkward soul :) I have a feeling that the base in this one would turn bitter if brewed for too long as it reminds me of that sort of tea. However, this was certainly a tasty cup!
