Day 23 of the 2015 Advent Calendar. I love the idea of this tea personally, but then again I love gingerbread in general so I suppose that’s to be expected. In terms of smell, I don’t know how to describe it other than well… Gingerbread Cookie ahaha. Although I do smell the mate base I think.

The tea itself brews into a really pretty amber colour, but I might attribute that to the rooibos that I believe is in the tea. Taste wise I wouldn’t really consider this ‘gingerbread’. For some reason its fruity and almost molassesy. I can definitely also taste the rooibos in this as well. Not getting the mate really, but I’m not a fan of the taste so I can’t say I mind.

Overall I feel like this tea was a bit of a letdown. The flavor itself isn’t… bad but I kind of expected a lot more from it. The aftertaste isn’t particularly nice either. I can see why David’s did not bring this one back. I’ll be sticking to Teavana’s take on Gingerbread, personally.
