I saw this on my floor when I got home from work and it reminded me that it’s Friday :D No more work for a few days YAY! I can finally breathe. Christmas is very busy (as everyone knows) and I have so much to do, I just chose my Christmas dinner recipe’s (this year I’m doing a red wine and chestnut pate en croute with roast parsnips and potatos, carrot pure and brussel sporuts) and that leads to much preparation. My husband loves Christmas and I keep thinking that this time last year he might have been taken away from me (he had testicular cancer last year that had spread to his lymphnodes and if it didn’t get caught when it did it could and probably would have been fatal) so I’m trying my best to make it extra special this year.
Anyway ramble on as I do, this tea arrived and after my Christmas planning and frantic shopping I decided to try this tea as soon as my daily schedule would let me. It looks like a nice mixture with large chunks dominating it of what look like cinnamon bark, cloves, and red fruit with a few other twiggy bits. It smells deliciously of spicy orange.
Once brewed the tea creates a mellow citrus fragrance. A few sips in and I can detect waxy orange, cooling clove, fruity berries and spicy cinnamon all in one mouthful. It’s not too heavy in flavour and the Assam gives this blend a lovely dark and rich fullness to balance the different flavours out.
A nice touch for the festive season this year, thank you Canton Tea.
