Wow… what a lame title… I’ll work on it… but not for blog one.. so in exciting news this year I was finally quick enough to get my hands on a tea advent calendar… and by finally quick enough I mean, I stalked websites and asked shop assistants several times to check on when they would be available and went straight from work to collect mine day 1 of stock… so I have been hanging out to drink my tea almost a month… To celebrate I thought I would do a little tasting review… nothing too deep just a quick run down of all the new teas I try so I know which ones I want to go back to. The thing is… while I love the concept of being a tea drinker and having exotic teas from all over the world… when it comes down to it… I like plain tea the most… nothing fancy, just good old tea… so I am not actually sure I am going to like my calendar because it’s going to test my tastebuds… but who knows… maybe this will be just the introduction to other teas I never knew I needed?
Anyway… here’s how it’s going to work… same questions everyday… gut responses… only occasional explanations…
Tea: Mulled Wine Magic
Initial Reaction: Ooooo Mulled wine ey? Will I be breaking my Salvo covenant by drinking this… no, that’s silly… it’s just tea not wine… but it does feel a little naughty… and this is why I have named my blog with such a lame title… it’s just who I am now I guess
Brew Time: 3 mins
Enjoyed with: Nothing… just hot water as recommended
Flavour: Fruity and sweet… but there is a spicy after taste… I am guessing cinnamon
Bonus review from Dave: His initial response was ‘ooo that’s a good one’ but he really only started drinking tea this week… maybe he is the tea drinker I have longed to be… or maybe he just doesn’t know what he likes. Better than normal tea… 7/10
