Sipdown.

Hurray! The box arrived. The foil packet closure of this tea was broken, so I sampled this one. There was just enough left for a cup. I didn’t detect any fruit flavours, just the faintest caramel with the slightest bit of fig over a slightly astringent base. Not rating this one.

VariaTEA

Oh shoot. I didn’t even notice or I would have repackaged it. Perhaps it broke when I rolled it up to squeeze it in?

Evol Ving Ness

Not to worry, it’s gone now. The ducks more than make up for it.

Indigobloom

You don’t often see fig in a tea!

Evol Ving Ness

The various French teas seem to have fig. I haven’t come across it elsewhere.

I think David’s had a fig tea for Christmas one year. I remember thinking it was nice.

I can only hope that it resurfaces some day (without too much fiddling on their part).

This is an interesting one for sure. Normally “Noel” teas have ingredients like orange and nuts and spice and though this definitely has orange, it is also a touch creamy. Plus, it makes me think of a Christmas ham where you bake it covered in maraschino cherries and pineapple. Not that it tastes like ham at all but the fixings are all present here and that’t the connection I am making to Christmas. With that said, aside from the orange and the fruity sweetness that can be picked out as pineapple and cherry (only a touch cough-syruppy) when you focus, the flavors are quite light. The base is a little astringent as well. It is okay, but not something I will be seeking out again. Still, I want to thank Shezza for adding it to the box thus giving me the opportunity to try this out.

From the GCTTB Round 6
1 tsp in 600 mL very hot water, steeped 4 minutes

This tastes like fruitcake or plum pudding! Plum, date, light notes of apple, candied orange/orange rind, mulling spice, maybe cherry? I read that this is supposed to have maraschino cherry flavor, so I’m disappointed there isn’t more maraschino cherry in here, it’s more of a dried Bing cherry, like that chocolate companies use to make dark chocolate covered dried cherries. This is very much like a Christmas dessert or those bowls of potpourri people put out at Christmas to make their house smell like orange and cinnamon.

This sounds so good!

Arby

It wasn’t spectacular. It was nice to try, but I would suggest putting in an order just to try this.

You mean you were able to order from Canada?

Definitely fruit cake comes to mind with this tea!
That’s all I remember as I drank this last week!

First off, I’m an arse – I just got this in a swap, and yet I oversteeped it. Of course. Because that’s my way! So, uh, 12 minutes.

Shockingly, it’s really really yummy. It smells a bit like plum pudding or fruit cake. I don’t get much out of the flavor other than an interesting, plummy-type of dryness.. again… I messed this up. Thank goodness there’s another good mug-full of tea to play with.

Thank you shezza, for so surreptitiously sharing some of this with me in LOOK Tea yesterday.

EDIT: What? caramel, pineapple, sweet orange, and maraschino… um… okay I get the orange (fruitcake, that’s what I identified it as) and marasschino (same thing), and possibly pineapple… but caramel? No. Well, maybe. Well… darn it, I so wish I hadn’t oversteeped this.

I’m personally not a fan of teas like this, but this is an enjoyable, full flavoured, smooth, desert tea.
