Another tea that came in my March Bird and Blend subscription. They’ve been sending quite a lot of rooibos based teas over the last few months, which I wish I could opt out of, because I generally don’t care for them. Though, I’m glad I got to try this one, because I can’t take any rooibos woodiness. I had actually never heard of a simnel cake before this tea, but based on what I’m reading about them, this tea seems to be an accurate representation. I can taste the marzipan (I really like the marzipan flavoring Bird and Blend uses, some of my favorite teas from them are very marzipany), dried fruits, and bit of candied orange. Overall really tasty, but so close to Mince Pie, that I don’t feel the urge to stock up on this one.
