This is the day 9 tea from Teanzo’s Advent Calendar. I love the aroma of this tea. It’s truly dreamy. I loved it so much that I contacted someone who makes soaps and told her of the ingredients and told her that she should attempt to recapture the fragrance for her soap. I would love to bathe in this scent.
I also enjoyed the flavor. There is no hibiscus. Let me say that again for those who may have missed it: THERE IS NO HIBISCUS! Yay! I also like the licorice-y notes of this, and I love cardamom and ginger. The rose is absolutely lovely. The cinnamon doesn’t overpower. It’s just a really well thought out tisane with NO HIBISCUS. It’s got a lovely flavor.
Lightly citrusy, warm spices, beautifully floral. I like the slight notes of cola from the cardamom and the way they play with the licorice notes.
A really lovely blend, here’s my full-length article: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/12/09/24-days-of-tea-holiday-countdown-day-9-from-teanzo-1856/
