This is truly a delicious blend – one that is definitely worthy of its place in 52Teas permanent collection, one I am glad was featured in this 12 Teas of Christmas box, and one that should definitely be on the shelf of every chocolate lover! It’s so good!
Holiday Fruit & Spice Blend from Mark T. Wendell is better than I thought it would be! Sure, it smells just like you assume it would but this is a tasty flavored black tea…juicy cran and the spices are just-right! The draw for me on this one – is that the spices seemed to have been Taylor-made just for me! Okay…maybe not…JUST FOR ME…but the spice is done nicely and not over the top and the cranberry flavors are exceptional!
The flavor is just as pleasing as the aroma. The black tea base is an invigorating, full-flavored tea that not only supports the flavors but is able to shine thorough in the presence of them.
I really like the fact that the Black Tea taste is upfront and the flavors are on the assist. The flavors play nice together. They circle around in your mouth nicely, too. I can taste the Chestnut and Caramel pretty much equally and the cinnamon acts as the caboose.
