Gingerbread Tea from Sunshine Cottage…oh…how I love thee!
I’ve had a lot of Gingerbread Teas the last 10 years or so. I have to say this one from Sunshine Cottage went the extra mile. I seemed to stand out over many others. Specifically because of the SWEET notes! Sure…when you drink a Gingerbread Tea you are probably looking for the gingerbread likeness and this tea DID have that but it had a little extra something, too!
I kept picking up on a lovely, mellow, sweetness. All I could think of is sweet cinnamon. And sure enough…Gingerbread Tea from Sunshine Cottage HAS sweet cinnamon in it! YAY!
Spicy ginger, sweet cinnamon, and fragrant star anise bring a depth to this gingerbread tea that is nothing short of joyful! A delightful holiday tea that will bring to mind the wonderful aromas of Christmas cookies and seasonal delights…this is what the product description on their Etsy shop had to say about this tea. I don’t know if I could say it any better!
The ginger was fairly subtle but still a part of the overall flavor profile. I wouldn’t change the ratio of ginger – I think it was perfect! The Anise was another well thought out ingredient that wasn’t overdone. But there was something about that sweet cinnamon that I couldn’t forget! The blend of flavored lingered very nicely on the tongue and well on to the after taste.
This was a delicious tea sipping experience that I will cherish long after the loose leaf is gone and the review written! Highly recommended!
