Don’t like this one. Whenever i steep, all i can taste and smell is beets. Dry, it smells quite nice. Glad i only got 30g of this on a whim..

Falling snow, popping chestnuts, cold hands and noses…yep, winter has arrived. But don’t worry, we have the perfect tea to warm you up all December long. Cinnamon, apples, raisins, almonds, and hibiscus combine for a tea that is sweet, tart, and earthy. And beet pieces make it as nice and rosy as a caroler’s cheeks. So hop in your sleigh, snuggle up, and pass a thermos around. It’s lovely weather for a Sleigh Ride together.

I didn’t know if I was going to like this or not, but the tea itself is rather pretty with large pieces of cinnamon and nuts. I’m not a big fan of fruit tea, but this smelled nice dry, and after letting it steep for a while, it brewed to a nice red color. I was worried that it would be sour like a strong hibiscus tea, but this is more like a spiced cider. A rather weak cider, but it is enjoyable. I sweetened it with splenda. Since I let it steep for so long, I didn’t think I could steep it a second time.
Anyway, this tea came in Tracey’s traveling tea box. There were a lot of great choices, but this was one I wanted to try first. This is my second sample David’s Tea, I think. I like it, though I doubt I would drink it without splenda.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon
I’ve really liked these tea before, the first few cups, but as I do a sip down (and in comparison with Forever Nuts), I like it less. Today I get an overwhelming flavor of popped rice, and I’m really tasting the tartness of the hibiscus. Overall, figuring out the many cups I’ve had, it’s still a good tea.
The smell of this tea reminds me of winter and is definitely a delicious one too! The tartness of the hibiscus is balanced by the coconut, apple and cinnamon. The papaya and pineapple add a slight fruitiness! Perfect served hot or over ice as a teapop :)
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Coconut, Hibiscus, Pineapple
When I first had this tea i was very surprised. I usually like my teas pretty strong in taste, but I was in the mood for something with less of a kick and more of a subtle tone. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but even though i put less than i usually use, it still had that beautiful red color-and a fruity kick! I was not expecting it, so i couldn’t tell if I liked it. I had it again recently at a good friends house and I was satisfied. Not a favorite, but I needed to blog about it.
