141 Tasting Notes
When I opened this the other day as day 13, I was totally happy. I really love this tea and already own a tin of it. I was so giddy. So this afternoon, I decided to make this tea. I made a pot of it and my dad just started drinking it before I got to it, it’s his fave too. I just love this tea. I have been having an off weekend, so drinking this tea this afternoon comforted me.
This morning, I had day 12 of the advent calendar:) For days I have been smelling the delicious aroma of banana bread from this little tin. I decided that today I would make a pot of this tea. I was surprised to see this one come out pink, much like the sleigh ride. The taste was both nutty and flowery. I like it hot better than cold.
Day 7 of the advent calendar… catching up! So this tea made me quite nervous to try out becuase I tried this tea about 8 months ago and I didn’t like it, perhaps I didn’t brew it properly becuase I tried it today and I was stunned that I actually finished the cup. So it was a good tea to have in the advent calendar becuase it made me give this tea the second chance I would never have given it otherwise. I am not going to get a tin just yet as I will actually drink the 50 grams of it I have now, becuase I ignored it all this time.
So I also had the Day 6 tea… Glitter and gold. So this really belongs on the adevent calendar. I bought 25 grams of this tea a few weeks ago becuase I was looking for a tea that was similar to toasted marshmallow and the lovely david’s tea saleslady reccommened this one. I decided to wait to try it becuase I knew it was on the advent calendar. I really love the gold balls when they dissolve in the water and create a shine. I really want to have a glass of this christmas morning. The taste is simialar to toasted marshmallow. Def going to be buying a tin of this sometime soon.
