Advent Tea 14: Alpine Punch

The name of this tea made me think of someone on skis attempting to punch someone else. I may have taken the name too literally. To be fair the colour of the tea combined with the smell of cinnamon did remind me of winter and snow.

I tend to be slow to warm up to red rooibos teas but this one was mellow enough to be tasty.  I was hesitant about the fact this tea contains rose blossoms and two different types of coconut.  My fears were unfounded I didn’t taste any coconut and the floral note wasn’t overpowering.  I like that this was subtle and that the fruity, floral notes weren’t over the top like so many of the other advent teas have been.
