With the upcoming holiday season upon us, taking a moment to reflect, relax, and enjoy those moments around us become even more important. What better way to reflect,relax, and enjoy those moments than with a lovely cuppa!
Old Fashioned Spice Cake from The NecessiTeas was a tea I was a bit wary of. Mainly because I am not a huge spiced tea fan. But, I prepped my water and set to getting myself a cuppa. So far every tea I’ve had from The NecessiTeas has made my taste buds dance. (The hand blended offerings from The NecessiTeas are simply amazing and if you haven’t tried their tea yet, do yourself a favor and pick up a blend or two. You wont’ be disappointed!) If anyone was going to make me enjoy a spiced tea, it would be them.
Right off of the bat, this tea’s dry leaves have a wonderful holiday like aroma. Almost like when you go home for the holidays and walk into the kitchen and a family member has been baking desserts all day long. My tea couldn’t steep fast enough. And remember, this is from someone who doesn’t care for most of the ingredients in this tea.
First sip, my taste buds did a happy dance. Simply delicious. Almond and cinnamon notes are the most prominent and together they provide that baked cake flavor. The ginger is very subtle and the cocoa provides that smooth lush profile. The rest of the spices give that holiday feel that you really pick up as towards the end of the sip. So many flavors. Such a gorgeous and well balanced tea.
This tea is one that you need to brew up huge tea pots full, crack open the tea cups and saucers, and enjoy with family members all around. Creating memories with loved ones is what this tea is all about!
