Spiced Green @adagioteas #teaadventcalendar #adventcalendar2021

Today’s tea from my Tea Advent Calendar is Spiced Green tea. I’ve never tried this one but it looks very wintery.

The tea contains green tea, orange, natural spice flavor, cinnamon, and ginger. When I opened the packet, it reminded me of mulled wine spices, which you can steep in hot apple cider or wine or a combination. The green tea looks like Chinese green tea.

I steeped it for 2 minutes in 8 ounces of 180ºF hot water. The leaves unfurl really beautifully as it steeps.

Unsweetened, I can taste more orange peel than anything else. I added some sugar, and suddenly it tasted almost exactly like when I simmered mulling spices in hot apple cider. It was so delicious! A nice balance of ginger and orange and cinnamon. A really wonderful tea for Christmas!
