2022 Bird & Blend Advent calendar Day #2

It’s school vacation week and since both grown ups have the day off work, we heading to Salem (MA) to be tourists. I anticipate it will be cold and raw near the ocean even though it’s another unseasonably warm day. I’ve been trying to finish up the 2nd samples in the B&B advent calendar. Since I sleepily boiled the kettle without thought, I had to choose this one.
Digestives aren’t typically found in New England markets but I have had them in the past from a British specialty shop. The tea reminds me chocolate graham crackers, which makes sense. I rather enjoy the scent- cookie, butter, chocolate. And those aromas carry through to the taste. There is a mild hint of spice to it that leaves a warm feeling in the back of my mouth. I don’t remember if I enjoyed this the first time around the advent calendar but after today’s mug, I’d definitely drink this again and purchase it too.

Flavors: Biscuit, Chocolate, Graham, Sweet

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

In the early 2000’s, my brother worked for a grocery company that removed items from the shelves and I ended up with a cabinet filled with random tea.

After I finished that cabinet, I started trying new things and exploring the world of tea. Still exploring, still learning, and loving this community.

I tend to take my tea with no additions and quite hot. Though often I find myself having to reheat my mug due to distractions. I’m partial to herbals, white tea, green, and blacks. But I really will try anything once.

100-80 Love in varying degrees
79- 60 Good, but in the friendzone
60-50 Ok, would drink if offered
49-20 Don’t make me try it again!
19-0 Didn’t finish!
