Rooibos Noel @adagioteas #teaadventcalendar #adventcalendar2021

Today’s tea from my Tea Advent Calendar is Rooibos Noel. Hey, didn’t I get this before? I did! I drank this on the 16th and didn’t care for it. I wavered over to drink it again today, and decided to give it another shot. After all, these are only 1 serving packets and I might have just gotten a disproportionate amount of rooibos last time.

(I forgot to take a picture of the dry tea leaves.) The tea contains rooibos tea, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, apple pieces, orange, natural spicy cinnamon flavor, rose petals, natural almond flavor, and natural orange flavor. It had a nice smell when I opened the packet, cinnamon and mulling spices.

I steeped it for 5 minutes in 8 ounces of 212ºF hot water.

It actually tasted less grassy this time! The cinnamon flavor is very nice unsweetened, but I added sugar anyway. It was a really nice tea, mostly cinnamon flavor, but I could also taste a bit of the ginger, orange and almond that gave it a more rounded, mellow flavor than just the cinnamon. I tasted barely a hint of the grassiness as last time. I’m glad I decided to try this again.
