Well here is another Teatourist monthly box review. I won the November launch box and reviewed that (Tea Tourist Review), but for some reason I believed I have won three month subcription, I hadn’t it was just one box. Anyway I contacted a little confused and they were really nice and had a leftover box and let me have Decembers box. So as a thank you to Tea Tourist im reviewing another box for them.
Tea no.1. Marzipan Rooibos by Hoogly tea
A nice simple rooibos tea with mazipan. Not much more to add. Normally tea tourist do loose leaf but this is already in bags not the paper bags. Now i have to worn you, when you open the packet the marzipan hits you, very nice warm feeling comes over you, and as you drink the marzipan stays with you.
Tea no.2 Gingerbread Chai by TUGBOAT
This is another rooibos tea, a lot different with ginger and cinnamon, I’m not a fan of ginger so I added honey like it suggests. The honey adds a nice twist which really compliments the tea.
Tea no.3 Shiraore Green by mono cha
This is a twig and leaf tea, smells really fresh and as its says on the instuction card “grassy” I’ll agree with that. Tea tourist recommend drinking with cake or just on its own. It is really nice and smooth to drink which is relaxing
Tea no.4 Citrus Ginger by LULIN TEAS
Another ginger team again I added the honey. It has plenty of different citus flavours orange and lemon zest as well as lemongrass. Personally not liking this one, but the honey makes it bareable to drink.
Tea no.5 Winter Spice by chash Tea
This tea smells like winter with all the different flavours and ingredients in the tea. There is apple, rosehip, lime blossom, elderberries, sage leaf and a few others. With tgis been a December (Christmas) box “drink with mince pies or add a cheeky tipple”
Tea no.6 Scotch Acorns by Nothing But Tea
Plenty of different ingredients in this tea, even a little whisky and plenty of nuts. The smell when you open the packet is sweet and heavenly, the tea itself looks good enough to eat without making it into tea to drink. Recommended as an after dinner drink and with the whisky I can see why.
This month sees a mixed bag of new teas I love and some that I hate. Yes I did use hate when talking about tea, but I really don’t like ginger. For me ginger spoils things.
