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.
A few years ago I heard about DAVIDsTEA 24-days of tea advent calendar. Basically it’s a advent calendar that is filled with tea and each day is a different blend of loose leave tea.
Previously I always forgot when the calendars went on sale and missed the small window of opportunity to get my hands one. Apparently I’m not alone in thinking this a fantastic idea for anyone who loves tea. It has to be healthier than a chocolate calendar.
This year a co-worker reminded me about the 24-days of tea — and last week a wonderful calendar filled with tea arrived in the mail. The only downside, I now have to wait until December to try any of the tea.
