Old Fashioned Gingerbread Black Tea - Taster


Old Fashioned Gingerbread Black Tea - Taster


Product Description

Tea of the Week for December 28, 2020!

Also featured as the 12th Tea of Christmas in our holiday box for 2020!

The inspiration behind this blend is simple - good, old-fashioned gingerbread. The freshly baked,  spice-laden cake that tastes (& smells!) of ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg & allspice as well as a hint of vanilla & a caramel-y, molasses-y sweetness. The kind of holiday treat that you'd want to enjoy a hot cuppa tea with. 

This blend combines the best of both - bringing together a rich, smooth black tea base of organic Assam, Ceylon & Yunnan teas with the spices & vanilla & caramel notes of a sweet, cake-y gingerbread. So warm & inviting. A perfect cuppa to enjoy this holiday season.

Oh & it's organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen-free too! 

Taster pouch is approximately 15g

organic ingredients: black teas, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, calendula petals, vanilla bean & natural flavors

When I first decided to create this Old-Fashioned Gingerbread black tea blend, I worried that it seemed a bit too familiar, like something that we had made in the past. So I had my doubts. But now that I'm sitting here, sipping this, I'm glad that I decided to go with this. Even if it does sound a little familiar, I am loving every sip of this tea. 

There is a really pleasant balance of black tea & gingerbread flavors here. It's well-spiced but I still get lots of cake-y flavors, a smooth vanilla tone & notes of the aforementioned molasses/caramel. It's really quite lovely & a perfect cuppa for the holidays & beyond. Warm. Smooth. Sweet yet spicy. A cuppa YUM!

to brew: give the pouch a good shake before you measure it out - the spices like to filter to the bottom of the pouch & a gentle shake will redistribute those throughout so that you get a fair representation of all the spices (including the vanilla bean & shaved nutmeg) in your measurement. 

use 3g of leaf to 12 ounces of nearly boiling water (205°F) & allow to steep for 3 minutes. strain & allow to cool for at least 10 minutes. enjoy!

As with any spice-laden tea, I do recommend a bit of sugar (sugar & spice - so nice together!) but not a lot. This has a pleasant sweetness to it & you don't want to overwhelm it - you just want to enhance the spices. About 1/2 a teaspoon per 12 ounce cup will do!
