From Whittard of Chelsea

Gather round the fire for strange tales from the spice markets of ancient trade routes. Our special Christmas blend balances a smooth, full-flavoured black tea with aromatic cloves, zesty orange peel, sweet Madagascan vanilla and yellow safflower petals. It’s just the thing to sip with a slice of Christmas cake – stunningly packaged in a Christmas clip top tin, it’s the gift the Wise Men forgot to pack.

I really like the aroma here. It;s a balanced, multilayered blend of cloves, orange peel, vanilla and cinnamon. Very warming and not at all artificial.
And the taste? Less impressive, that’s for sure. The spices don’t seem that evident here, they hover a bit in the back behind the slight maltiness of the base black tea. It’s not bad, though.

Sipdown (1547)!

Another sample gifted from TeaWithJann! I didn’t like this one quite as much as the Christmas Morning from Stash and I do think that’s interesting because the flavour of this tea actually was closer to being in line with what I’d expected from the Stash blend. It was a full bodied black tea and pretty straight forward cinnamon (a mix of woody/barky and red hot style) with just a HINT of vanilla…

Could you believe it’s acutally over and I am sitting here, drinking Christmas tea? Simple, I knew I got it from Izzy (thank you, but what happened to her I have no idea – not even news on her website);

And then I forgot. So I took it today, as it is quite cold day; quite sad day that free days and exams starts tomorrow. Exactly tomorrow I have one – quite major one.

Anyway to the tea, it looks like decent black one, bold, quite spicy on aroma.

And in taste? Well, it is nice black tea, very strong (but I steeped it on upper limit), nice spice notes there and although cinnamon is not there, I feel it. But more prominent are cloves and vanilla is rounding the taste and adds sweet note. Not bad , but nothing to return.
