Went out for tea recently with my Dad at the Vintage Tea Room here in town.
We decided to split a large pot of tea, and I chose “Mulled Spice” which was a black tea. I thought it seemed sort of seasonally appropriate. Like the majority of tea from Vintage Tea Room, I’m about 90% sure that they source this from The Metropolitan Tea Company but a quick cursory glance here on Steepster didn’t reveal anything from MTC with this exact name and I’m too lazy right now to do a bigger delve into MTC’s catalog to see if I can find a match, so this is getting its own entry…
It was a relatively fine tea; really strong cinnamon and clove notes accented with hints of orange and apple that definitely gave it that mulled cider kind of flavour. Pretty sweet on its own, but also astringent which helped to temper the sweetness just a little bit.
I don’t know that I would order it again, though.
