I had enough of this sample to make one more cup, so I’m having my one cup and celebrating having made just a tiny bit of room in my tea pantry. It’s a dusty cup but I’m not going to have any sympathy for that in my ultimate rating (which I’m thinking needs to drop a bit but we’ll see). Thankfully, the smell gives me more spice than toilet tank potpourri, which is what I’ve gotten previously.

No sugar or milk this time. I got a whiff of the citrus and all I could think of was the yellow TheraFlu. Uh oh. But that has passed so maybe it was a one time taste? Smells spicy but tastes a bit bland in comparison. There might be a hint of a mulled cider taste in it.

Not a bad tea but kind of dull. I think I would rather have mulled cider or chai instead of a somewhat in-between tea. For those that find chai too spicy, though, this might be a good alternative. And it certainly fits the season more now than when I had it in summer. Regardless, I’ve dropped the rating some just because it’s a bit boring.

Yellow TheraFlu and toilet tanks? BLAH, Auggers, you make this sound fairly disgusting.

But yay, more space, because you’re going to need it when I get through with you! :D

Well, it really isn’t horrible. I drank it all and didn’t make any faces or anything. But yeah, ultimately, it is not a happy-making tea for me.

I think we can all agree that life is too short for non happy-making teas.

Still logging holiday teas—although several seem very similar. Usual blend of black tea, citrus peel, almonds, rose petals, vanilla, spices. Pleasant spicy flavor with developing orange note. Good with milk, probably sugar, as one wishes.
