A festively cheery cup, fragrant with clove and nutmeg, with a beautiful copper tone. I drank the first one plain, for the notes, and then made another into a latte, complete with whip and a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon. In other words, I had a decadent dessert for breakfast, and you’re missing out, but I digress!

The nutmeg really carries through to the sip and weighs on the back of the tongue, just like a gingerbread cookie might do.

Besides the typical gingerbread suspects, there’s a mildly buttery mouthfeel and slightly acidic aftertaste from the black tea, the latter of which I wish was a bit better balanced, but I am hardly complaining about anything in this lovely little cup.

Definitely going to have to stock up on a little of this to share with my sisters during the holidays this December. Thanks so much for introducing me to this one, tea_sipper!

I spend most of my day with books, and tea has become a spectacular way of both beginning, breaking, and ending the day. I also hobby around in the kitchen and a rooftop garden in my spare time.

As for taste, I’m really into well-composed natural herbals with nutty, piny, vegetal, or floral notes as well as bold, complex blacks, including chais. Milky matchas and taros are favorite indulgences, too, but in all honestly, I’m here to learn more about tea and am hoping to make my way into Oolongs and Pu-erhs as I empty out my cupboard. All the same, I hope my logs in general tell a story of palate expansion, discovery, and a fair bit of fun. I’ll try anything once.
