Tea Time with Em – Dec 13

Day 13:

Tea: Detox
Initial Reaction: Oooo a purple tea… Oh it’s Detox, what does that mean? Contains liquorice… sure why not…
Brew Time: 4 mins
Enjoyed with:
Nothing
Flavour: Not at all what I expected… it’s almost a bit woody… there is a flavour in it that I can’t quite put my on it… to be honest… I am not sure I like it… I’m also not feeling particularly cleansed or detoxed… but that could also be due to the fact that I have natural suspicion that rings when ever I read the word detox…
Score: 4/10

Tea Time with Em – Dec 12

Day 12:

Tea: Twinkle Berry
Initial Reaction: Doh! More fruit tea… although I do like berries… I am choosing to stay positive and hopeful that I might find the right fruit tea for me…
Brew Time: 3 mins
Enjoyed with: Nothing
Flavour: Look… to be totally honest this was better than I thought it would be… and it was really pink… I thought it would taste like hot ribena, but it didn’t and it was no where near as sweet as I was expecting… in fact as far as fruit teas go it was pretty good.
Score: 6/10

Bonus review from Dave: It was good, I finished the cup and I’d do it again 8/10

Tea Time with Em – Dec 11

Day 11:

Tea: Green Rose
Initial Reaction: This sounds delicious… I like green tea and I love rose… so it could be a winner, seriously what combo.
Brew Time: 3 mins
Enjoyed with:
Just hot water
Flavour: I was right, it was delicious… I think I might be getting more of this.
Score: 8/10

Bonus review from Dave: I got a tiny Turkish delight tinge 6/10

Tea Time with Em – Dec 10

Day 10:

Tea: New York Breakfast
Initial Reaction: I’ve had this before and I think I liked it… and its a good old black tea… yeah for normal tea ish…
Brew Time: 4 mins
Enjoyed with: a dash of milk and then a little bit of sugar
Flavour: Not bad… sweet vanillary taste even before I added the sugar, it’s nice, I think I still prefer just good old plain tea, but this was a nice treat for a change. Also… it’s getting harder to write these reviews… they are all blending into one hot tea mess…
Score: 7/10

Tea Time with Em – Dec 09

Day 09:

Tea: Tummy Tea
Initial Reaction: Great, this is perfect for today… and it’s one I have wanted to try… a tea digestive.
Brew Time: 4 mins
Enjoyed with: Boiling Water
Flavour: Minty and sweet, and pretty much the same as my mint mix tea… I liked it.
Score: 9/10

Bonus review from Dave: Perfect after dinner mint… 7/10

Tea Time with Em – Dec 08

Day 08:

Tea: Packs a Peach
Initial Reaction: I wonder if I can get a strictly black tea advent calendar because if I’m really honest, while I love the idea of a fruit tea.. I’m just not sure I’m that into them… but look peach iced tea seems to be the thing to do so maybe this will be ok.
Brew Time: 4 mins
Enjoyed with: you guessed it… nothing
Flavour: The label was not misleading at all… this really packs a peach… a heck of a lot of peach… it’s like drinking a cordial made of melted peach lollies… it’s not terrible… but I’m really starting to think it’s just all fruit teas I’m not that into.
Score: 6/10

Bonus review from Dave: It’s just like warm iced tea… 6/10

Tea Time with Em – Dec 07

Day 07:

Tea: Frosted Fruitcake
Initial Reaction: Ooooo this looks fun… wait I don’t like fruitcake… but maybe I will like it tea form… is that a whole date in the mix?
Brew Time: 4 mins
Enjoyed with: Nothing
Flavour:
It didn’t smell like I would like it… and it was correct, it takes biscuity… but not crumbly or bitty, just like a biscuit would in drink form… I think that’s the cinnamon again… and it lingers…
Score: 5/10

Bonus review from Dave: A pleasant combination of fruit and black tea… 6/10
