Ehm… not sure if I even have time for this tasting note. So sorry if you have been expecting something funny, light-hearted or anything. Nothing from that from me today. I just get an email saying tomorrow there is an exam from Forwarding. Yes, she decided on that in the first week of semester, but she could at least remind us week in advance.
Shae’s ADVENT CALENDAR, December 8
The concentrated aroma in pouch, in the morning I have opened it was just… too strong. But then it was much, much better and now I think I am close to “love it” mark. What a coincidence I bought prunes today to use in the Christmas cookies. At least I think so. They aren’t on the photo though, as I don’t know how much of them are needed and the package isn’t that big at all.
I think I notice cinnamon in as well. At least based on the aroma; among the prunes. Seeing sugar crystals in the blend is nice, but for me, who almost never sweeten tea, well it’s going to be bit tricky.
Are those prunes in liquid form? I was afraid it would be sweet, or exactly opposite, but… it is just right. A bold black tea base, prunes and cinnamon. No alcoholic note as another thing I was afraid of, as I had tried few plum teas. I can imagine the cinnamon bit more prominent, but maybe adding it next time and it will be just great.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Plum
