Welcome to day 8 of the advent calendar. It’s been ut-tea-ly delightful so far!
So what awaits for today?
Door number 8 – Morning Kick
Ingredients: Yerba Mate, lemongrass, lemon verbena, ginger, lemon peel, calendula
In raw form this tea has a spicy citrus smell and is rather twiggy and large in appearance.
Once steeped this tea is yellow in colour with a sweet lemon grass and ginger aroma.
In flavour there are strong lemon tones (particularly lemon grass and lemon verbena) with a spicy undertone of ginger which over all creates a stimulating and warm blend. The mate is rich but is covered nicely by the mix of flavours and would be suitable for those that are not keen on it’s robustness.
The flavours mellow rather quickly so you’re left with a refreshing and mellow lemon flavour in between sips.
Another day and another tea done. Join me tomorrow to see what’s behind door number 9!
