Thank you Meghann for a sample of this tea!
Is it Thanksgiving or Christmas yet? That was the first thing I thought when I saw and took a whiff the leaves. Its a blend full of color and texture. I kept staring at the blend before I put it into my teapot. The colors… red and pink… dark and light greens and white… the cardamom pod that I wanted to crush (I like crunchy sounds…) but didn’t. The texture… fuzzy, smooth, hard, soft…
Ok the smell is so appetizing. It is sweet and spicy, and it isn’t offensive or overwhelming.
The taste is light, sweet, and spicy. The steep is a very light yellow. I can definitely taste the cinnamon and other spices; the vanilla added warmth to the blend, and the apples, despite the light taste, added sweetness.
In my boyfriend’s cup, I added some sugar since he almost always drinks his teas with sugar. I tried it, and it isn’t that bad. This tea doesn’t need sugar or milk though :) YUM!
