drank Christmas Punch by Die Tee Familie
1495 tasting notes

Cutest package! Santa’s lying on his back with an angel worriedly looking over him. The package tells a story along the lines of, “Santa drank this tea and it punched him in the face it was so good. He fell over, and drank it until he sunk into the snow, until next Christmas.”

This isn’t a bad tea, however it leaves a bit to be desired in the tangerine flavoring aspect – unless it’s sweetened. After Truvia, it perked right up and becomes juicy and delicious. I can see why it’s called Christmas Punch (it tastes a bit like punch), with some added flavoring that definitely reminds me of the holidays (almond, mostly). The rose is lost in here, and that’s just fine with me.

I did steep this at the lower level of the steeping range; I’ll do it longer next time, just in case I’m missing something.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
