Well… I tried this tea again. This tea is a very tricky one to brew. I followed the instructions on the back, but it said boiling water. I think next time I’ll brew it for green tea brewing instructions. Such a tricky one to steep. Honestly I don’t taste or smell anything fantastic in this one. I don’t smell joy or Christmas or anything from this. Just black tea. I don’t really get why this is a seasonal tea either.
I think I will have to revisit this one again and hopefully, once steeped differently will jump out at me. I can’t decide if this is a milk tea, milk and sugar, straight… all in all the trio of leaves just make me thing this is too much going on. I have a whole tin of sachets left, so I guess I will be giving this a try again, but right now I just don’t see what all the “joy” is about this tea.
