Advent Day 6

There are two entries for gingernut for T2 in Steepster. Hoping I have the right one. I opened it and it smelled effervescent! I’m assuming it’s the association I have with a particular scent of ginger being ginger ale. This has the flavor of a ginger ale, if it was one of those lightweight ginger ales. My preference is the kind that is so strong it makes you nose tingly! This cup is very warming and the ginger is bright without the bite. I don’t get any nutty flavors, but I feel like I’m getting a touch of citrus near the end. Another fine cup that I would rush out to buy.

I received a sample in the 2020 Advent Calendar.
I usually HATE chai tea with a passion, but actually – this one wasn’t bad at all! Definitely drinkable.
Warming, spicy, slightly sweet, zingy even (thanks to ginger). You can definitely feel lots of cardamon, T2 weren’t stingy when it comes to spices.

I haven’t tried it with milk and sugar, but I suspect it could work well too.

Apparently it’s a limited edition. Well, I wasn’t planning on buying the whole box anyway ;-)

Flavors: Cardamon, Clove, Ginger, Orange

239/365

This is the last of the T2 samples I have in my cupboard, and since it needs milk and I’m not at work, it made sense to finally get around to it. It’s inspired by gingernut biscuits, which I quite like, so I have high hopes for this one!

In practice, it’s maybe not quite what I expected. Gingernut biscuits, to me, are a relatively sweet thing, and I know T2 can do sweet flavoured teas pretty well. This blend is much more on the savoury side of things; less gingernut, and more chai. There’s plenty of cardamon and clove (which I enjoy) plus a hefty kick of ginger (which I’m not so keen on). I can also taste orange, which I wasn’t expecting; there’s a little juciness, but it’s more pithy than fruity on the whole. As it cools, I can detect a little liquorice root – not enough to be obnoxious, but a little all the same. It feels fairly redundant, really, since for the most part it’s drowned out by the spices.

This isn’t one I’m particularly keen on, so I’m not too sad that it was limited edition. Most of the samples I tried lived up to their names pretty well, but this one fell a bit short. It’s not bad as a chai blend, but I was expecting something more.
