Tea Revv Advent Calendar – Day 6
(originally written November 6th)
Ooh, double black advent tea day! This one isn’t on Tea Revv’s website at the moment, so I’m not entirely sure what it’s meant to be flavored like. I get that it’s a Christmas pudding with rum, but not being British I’m not sure what that entails exactly. I assume it’s something like a fruitcake, with dried fruit and spices and the like. One of you Steepsters from across the pond, set me straight! ;)
Well, this doesn’t taste like any of those things to me. I’m not sure I really even get rum, perhaps just a touch? But mostly I’m getting banana and maybe some cocoa? Perhaps a bit of dried fruit, like cherries or cranberries, so that follows the fruitcake thing a bit. The base tea is malty, a bit woody, and a bit brisk with a slightly astringent aftertaste.
It’s certainly not bad, I’m just not sure what it’s supposed to taste like so I can’t say whether it’s accurate or not.
