Day 12 Davids Tea Advent Calendar 2023

I picked this one out of the calendar because I could use some caffeine and the only samples left in the calendar didn’t seem appropriate. What a pretty tea! I knew I needed to break out my glass tea cup to see all the sparkle and shine. Today is the first day of school break and while I’m not off of work, I’m hoping to cram in all the fun on my days off. The rest of the fam, is rather slow to catch on to this, so I’m sipping this one while plotting out their staycation.

It’s a sweet, cinnamon flavor that reminds me of the cinnamon candies my grandmother used on her gingerbread man cookies. It’s interesting to me that I confuse the clove vs cinnamon taste. Possibly because they are usually mixed together in baked goods. It has a good lemony taste to it as well. While it is pretty, I wanted a stronger clove/cinnamon taste.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Lemon

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 45 sec

Bio

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.

Rankings:
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!
