REVIEW: What a fun name and mix that I really had some expectations. This tea did not surprise however not what I thought it would be. Again, remember I do not look at ingredients before tasting. I expected to taste all the ingredients listed however I did not taste many of them, from the name I expected a Holiday tea, but did not feel it to be that way.

 

Prior to brew:

Brewed: Mid Amber color

Scent: Surprising vegetal and sweet scent

Flavor: Slight bitter however sweet flavor

 

Sentiments: To me, the tea does not match the name, it’s a good tea, I actually enjoyed it however from the name I feel it’s being branded as a winter or holiday tea and it just did not fit the name.

 

My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “8 ”
