Sipdown (694)!

Picked up a small Tea Forte sampler from McNally Robinson while I was in Winnipeg – looks like it was a holiday sampler with different limited edition holiday flavours. Mostly I was just deeply curious about the Rum Raisin Biscotti flavour in the kit…

This was the first one I tried after getting home to Montreal; I had low expectations – “spiced plum” is a rather played out holiday tea flavour/offering and one that’s usually done pretty poorly; plum is a deeply hard flavour to do well. As expected, the infusion did not remind me of plum – but it was still a decently nice cup. Very much a marriage of sweet cinnamon and ginger, with a tart hibiscus-y “cooked fruit”/raisiny note. By far not the worst tea I’ve tried in this vein conceptually, but still has a generic quality to it.

I’m not a spiced fruit tea fan, so this one was kind of unlikely to be a favorite. I’d say it does taste like a mulled cider type of thing. The flavor is difficult to describe, but I found it sour and a bit unpleasant overall with a touch of spice. It’s difficult to get a plum flavor without the sourness. It tasted slightly better cold, but to my taste buds at least, this tea was a bit gross to drink. It took two days to drink because I was kind of grossed out by it. I hate having to say negative things about a tea! I’m never sure whether to leave a low score or no score at all in case personal tastes are interfering too much. The flavor for this one was pretty weird though.

I thought this would be overly tart, but I actually found it had a good balance of cinnamon, dried fig and plum flavour, and fruity tartness. The spicy combination is nice, very warm and comforting. I wish the ginger was spicier, but overall it is a nice flavourful winter blend.

I’ve been testing out some Tea Forte today. :P My friends mom gave me a box with 5 different flavours. Cause she hasn’t been using them and she knows I’m crazy about tea.
Anyway, this one is actually pretty good. When I opened it, I smelled grape right away, but I guess that’s the plum too.. It’s sweet and fruity with a little tinge of spice and ginger. It’s overall a nice tea.

Flavors: Fruity, Ginger, Grapes, Plums, Spices
