The last of my Christmas tea was drank today. I’d been saving this last bag of ETS Ginger Bread Man for a special occasion, but I caved and had it this afternoon. I love how light it is, both in colour and flavour. I brewed for 4 whole minutes, which is a long time by my standards, to get a fiery orange brown brew.

The aroma is seriously inviting. It’s spiced and apple-y, while the ginger makes my nose tingle. The flavour has very little ginger in it, but that’s ok. It tastes a lot like the spiced apple juice we drink at Christmas, but more complex. The Ceylon tea in this blend is light with a medium body. It compliments the apple flavour and stands up well behind the complex spices without competing to be the dominant flavour.

Is it just me or are ETS teas always perfectly balanced?

Although I really enjoy the flavour of this tea (I wish this wasn’t my last tea sachet), I’m torn. On one hand, it is delicious and perfectly balanced. On the other, there’s barely a hint of ginger and it tastes nothing like a real ginger bread man. A great tea, just completely mislabelled and slightly disappointing when you’re in the mood for a very gingery tea.

I had some fun taking pictures of this brew for my tea blog, featuring a cheeky ginger bread man https://www.immortalwordsmith.co.uk/english-tea-shop-ginger-bread-man-review/

Spicy, flavourful, and warming. I like this tea with milk and sometimes a touch of honey.
