Christmas Spiced Tea (M&S) By @SpectreUK

Christmas Spiced Tea (M&S)

Searching high and low for any products we haven't tried with 'Christmas' in the title, or at least we haven't blogged about before, Cinabar found this Christmas Tea in a local store. This is a black tea with a blend of spices, including Cassia Bark, Liquorice Rout, Allspice, and dried fruit, including apple and orange peel.

I ignored the suggestion on "how to make the perfect cup of tea" on the back of the box, as I know by now how to make tea the way I like it, which is strong, dark, and with no added sugar. I'm sweet enough. I just had a spot of milk in my mug after brewing, and I put Shakin' Stevens "Merry Christmas Everyone" on repeat, to get into the Christmas spirit.

On breaking open a box of mince pies I hummed along to the music as no one wants to hear me try to sing. On smelling this Christmas Tea there was a spicy woody aroma. On taste there was a lot of warming spice to this tea, the bark shone through all that spice, and then the orange peel provided a little citrus which was balanced out with fruity apple into the aftertaste.

This was definitely a warming spicy tea, spicier than a regular Chai and very flavoursome indeed. I'll look forward to enjoying the rest of the box with my Christmas Dinner, Christmas Cake, Christmas Pudding, fruit cakes, mince pies and everything else I'm going to gorge myself on over the next couple of weeks.

Merry Christmas Everyone! :-)
