Time for Tea Please?
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas ! Thanks to the lovely people at Joes Tea Co. I’m also able to start drinking Christmas. There’s nothing better than on a cold day warming up your fingers on a steaming mug of tea.
Before even opening the tea pouch and basking in the aroma, the ingredients are already getting me into the Christmas spirit. This blend uses Rooibos, cinnamon, cardamom, mace, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, liquorice, star anise, fennel, orange peel, black pepper. All the flavours associated with the festive season.
Let’s get that kettle on!
Upon opening the tea pouch wowzer! It’s a super intense the cinnamon and star anise are punching at your nostrils along side a ginger kick with a fruity undertone. You may not be able to overly smell the Rooibos side of things but the chai side is screaming Christmas.
Mmmmm the hot brewing aroma is just tealicious! It certainly gets your mouth watering. The chai is so spiced and intense it’s gripping and i can’t wait to get sipping.
First sip wow wow wow !
Now that really is a winter warmer. The intensity of the flavour is amazing. Your hooked on the flavour straight away. The combination of the fruity tones add an extra depth to each sip which compliments the spice side.
It’s not really till the almost after taste of the tea that your reminded that it’s a rooibos tea. This isn’t a bad thing at all as it makes a change to find a chai based tea that’s not black and caffeinated. Therefore an all rounder tea best for any time of day.
It’s not just an any day type of tea it’s also one that tastes the same throughout the sipping experience. Unlike other teas that has its main flavour at the beginning or the end this one is maintains its taste level throughout which is a massive bonus.
This is the perfect tea to sit by an open fire with toasting your hands and roasting chestnuts. Ok maybe sitting with your back against the radiator is more likely but you get what I’m saying.
