Over the Christmas break, I took some vacation time. I ended up still working a good chunk of the time but I was able to at least binge watch a few shows that I had been wanting to. Downton Abbey was on the list of shows I wanted to start so I was saving this tea until I had a few episodes watched. Unfortunately, the flashy ads for The Crown (staring Matt Smith, one of my favorite doctors from Doctor Who) caught my eye and I ended watching that series and not watching Downton Abbey. Shame on me. This is one show that I know I need to watch so hopefully I’ll be able to soon.
Since I wasn’t able to watch the show, I thought I’d go ahead and drink this tea. I honestly can’t believe how much I love this tea.
This tea is a bagged tea from The Republic of Tea. I’ve found that I either really love their tea or am just not a fan of it. Their green pear tea is one I find myself craving and the fact it is a bagged tea adds a nice convenience factor for me. 99% of the tea I drink every day is loose leaf but I do find myself running out the door quite often without the foresight of getting my morning tea ready to go for the commute. That is when this tea works perfectly in my busy life, plus it tastes amazing!
Mrs. Patmore’s Pudding Black Tea is a flavored black tea with notes of a dessert quality. The description is spot on with this one. You really don’t know this is a black tea because the flavoring does take over but in a good way. There is a vanilla cake like feel through each sip with a rich and lush caramel throughout. Absolutely delicious and one that I am considering getting a whole tin of.
Definitely a perfect tea to curb those sweet tooth cravings that hit me in the afternoon but also a great tea to enjoy on my morning commutes.
A dessert tea at its finest in a convenient tea bag form. Not sure if this is a dutiful tribute to Mrs Patmore’s Pudding but I’m quite tickled with this one!
Here’s the scoop!
