Advent Calendar 2017, Day 21: Was on the bitter end of dark chocolate, a bit of a coffee type edge, but a nice chocolate flavor. I’m tempted to brew this strong with some milk.

Advent Calendar 2017, Day 19: Wonderfully cinnamon. Used 1 perfect teaspoon (1.25 tsp) to 16 oz mug, will probably use more in the future. Reminds me of Let It Snow, without the fruitiness, which makes it a simpler, but more satisfying experience.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Advent Calendar 2017, Day 18: I love earl grey. I drink it almost every day. This is the worst earl grey I’ve ever had. I steeped it for the minimum suggested time and it tasted massively over steeped and bitter. I tasted no bergamot, only the weird flower taste they added. The tea itself had the quality of really bad black tea bags. I had to eat something to get the lingering, bitter, burnt taste out of my mouth.

1.25 tsp

Oh, no! I just saw this and think I accidentally gave you this in your Christmas package! Well, hope you have a guest over who might want to try it! Good to know, though, since I also like Earl Grey & now I know not to bother, especially since there are plenty of good ones out there!

Advent Calendar 2017, Day 14: I was skeptical of the idea of a lemon pound cake tea – but wow, this really smells and tastes like lemon pound cake. I want this with some lemon cookies. Delightful, refreshing, a dessert in a cup.

Advent Calendar 2017, Day 13: I love this kind of tea. This smells and tastes delicious. The only negative I have on it is that it’s oddly thick and syrupy. It has a mouth feel of heavily honeyed tea. I think I would grow used to that over time, but not expecting it, it was a bit off putting at first.

Advent Calendar 2017, Day 12: I HATE coffee. I never would have tried this except it was in the advent calendar. One sip had me gagging. But since this is a flavor I hate, it’s not fair for me to rate it. Enjoy, coffee lovers!

This is punch you in the taste buds peppermint, with a strong sweet undercurrent from the white chocolate and snowflake candies. I don’t generally reach for peppermint teas, but when I do so in the future, this would be my go-to.
