Advent calendar – day 9

This is a very delicate cherry tea. Light and fruity and bright. Lovely! In fact, I gulped it down as I was working, and I’m already wishing I had taken my time instead. Thank goodness for my second advent calendar waiting for me in January, but I might have to fight my husband for this one! He loves cherry tea, while for me it’s more of a “once in a great while” thing. In any case, I liked it! Since white and green teas are not my usual teas, I am thrilled to have tried it! I can’t say that I taste much of the almond, but it might be why I liked it. The ginger and spices are there but in a very gentle way, it blends beautifully. I don’t find it vegetal at all which is a wonderful surprise. All and all, a lovely and delicate cup of tea. (disclaimer, I added a tiny bit of stevia as usual to bring out more of the fruit flavor)

I started drinking tea in 2018 when a friend introduced me to flavored black teas. Since then, I have developed a bit of a tea addiction. I never want to be without the teas I love, but I’m perpetually compelled to try new ones…

Being French and living in the US, I started with French tea companies like Mariage Freres, Dammann Freres, Kusmi, Nina’s, and TheOdor, but I’d love to find tea companies I love as much on this side of the Atlantic.

I’m partial to dessert teas and in terms of flavors, I adore almond, pistachio, biscuit, nutty types, as well as caramel, cream, cake, vanilla, toffee, chocolate, and cookies. For me, it’s all about drinking my dessert!!! I also like fruity teas like peach, melon, mango, raspberry, strawberry, figs, and even grapefruit flavored teas. I am discovering more floral teas and testing the waters there, but I don’t care for earl greys or chai. I have not expanded into unflavored teas yet, but maybe one day.

For full disclosure I usually add a little bit of stevia to my teas.
