Advent Teas Part 3!

Part 2 here!

Day 17

Another chai, which I may add milk to again, we’ll see!

It smells like chai, so that’s a win!

:blobcoffee:
*sips*

well this seems ok without milk, the vanilla adds sweetness that means that it tastes pretty good as is. If I got this one to drink more regularly I’d probably add milk, and probably even make iced chai latte with it, but as a one off cup this works well!

Day 18

Uh oh Turmeric again, though this one has an interesting sounding green tea -Pin Ho Wild Jade green tea.

We’ll see how this goes, it smells very curry-like!

:blobcoffee:
*sips*

The turmeric is a very strong flavour, I don’t think I can taste the green tea at all. It’s not bad, just kind of an odd flavour for tea. Someone did suggest last time I had a turmeric tea that the teabag would make a great ingredient for a curry!

Day 19

This one is called After Dinner so I dutifully waited till after I had my dinner to make it!

There’s no particular smell that I can work out while it steeps, just “spices”.

:blobcoffee:
*sips*

It’s a pleasant initial sip and then leaves a kind of bitter aftertaste that I’m not too keen on. Subsequent sips seem a little less bitter though, so it’s definitely growing on me as I keep drinking.

Day 20

I’m excited about this one, it’s a matcha green tea!

Not much to report on the smell – it’s tea!

:blobcoffee:
*sips*

mm yes a good cup of green tea

Day 21

This one sounds adorable, it’s called love 😍

I’m a bit disappointed that the tea itself is just a normal tea colour and not pink, but also all the pink/purple teas have been kinda bad fruit teas so I guess that’s for the best! Also the chamomile is the strongest smell as it steeps

:blobcoffee:
*sips*

mm the rose and lavender seem to taste a little stronger than they smell making for a pleasantly floral mix!

Day 22

This one seems to have been made to protect you from colds you might catch from meeting your family over the holiday!

It is a fruity one though, so we’ll see – the fruity smell is pretty good while it steeps.

:blobcoffee:
*sips*

mm I’m still not a huge fan of the fruit teas but it’s not too bad and hopefully will keep me healthy over the holiday!

Day 23

Today is my penultimate teabag! I’ll be drinking the final cup tomorrow evening at my mum’s where I am spending Christmas (you’ll see why I’m waiting till the evening when I post then!) 😁

Today’s is called relax, which is what you need in these last couple of days before Christmas! It certainly smells relaxing while it steeps.

:blobcoffee:
*sips*

It’s very sweet and pleasant with no harsh flavours, I don’t know if it’s relaxing but it’s certainly tasty!

Day 24

The final one, which means one more sleep till Christmas!

I’m writing this from my mum’s house, though she has the exact same mug as me so you can’t actually tell from the photos!

Today’s tea is night time which is why I’m doing this now! And it has a very strong chamomile smell.

:blobcoffee:
*sips*

A flowery mix, the chamomile is a little strong though. I’m not sure I need its help sleeping, already pretty tired!
