200 Tasting Notes
I enjoy chocolate + orange, but I prefer keeping things simple. Tea, chocolate, orange. I didn’t find the basic formula improved by the addition of more ingredients. It could be that my palate isn’t sophisticated enough to appreciate it. =)
Flavors: Chocolate, Orange
With apple and orange present, poor pumpkin didn’t stand a chance. And then cinnamon? Fuhgeddaboudit. I like the black tea base more than just a straight fruit blend, cos that usually just tastes too much like hot apple juice, but this still isn’t for me.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Hibiscus
Of note is that this is the first “candy cane” blend I’ve tried that isn’t minty; in my book, that’s a wonderful thing. Interesting blend—what with the popped rice with the black tea ‘n’ all—and interesting flavour. Kinda toasty, a little sweet. Always happy to try any tea at least once, but not sure there’s anything here that would compel me to try it again.
There are a whole lot of ingredients in this blend that tastes only like apple and clove and cinnamon. Hard for anything else to shine through when clove and cinnamon are around. Bit tart for my tastes.
This was the second tea in Yawn’s 2021 advent thingy. I can’t find it on their site, though, so not sure it was worth the effort of adding and logging it.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Clove
