drank Holiday Blend by English Tea Shop
4847 tasting notes


For Christmas, I got a lovely box of tea from a friend. This was one of the teas in that box. Even though the ingredients are sort of ‘chai-ish’ sounding, it tastes less chai than it sounds. This is more of a gently warm, spiced tea that tastes more holiday than chai.

And that’s alright because this is a holiday blend … not a chai blend. :)

A mild black tea flavor … smooth. The spices are not overly aggressive. The fruit notes of apple and orange add a nice, pleasant flavor. Overall, it’s a nice holiday cuppa.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
