Advent Tea 17: Mulled Wine

MulledTeaMulled wine tea.  Interesting.  This oolong tea has apple, orange peel, cinnamon, clove and ginger.  It has a citrus cinnamon smell with a holiday feel. The smell and colour reminded me of apple cider.  Once steeped I was surprised the light colour of the tea — I’ve only have mulled wine made from red wine before making me thing that this would have more of a redish colour when steeped.

There is a slight perfuming taste to the tea that wasn’t too appealing and the oolong tea is overpowered by the other flavours.  It’s not horrible but nothing something I’d buy.  I’m headed to a Christmas party tonight where there were promises of actual mulled wine. Deliciousness awaits.
