Tea Review: Christmas Festival (Washington's Finest Tea)

Christmas Festival
Washington's Finest Tea
Type: Black
Origin: Not provided.
Product Description: Not Provided.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf blend contains Ceylon black tea, red rooibos, cinnamon nibs, rose petals, peppermint, dark cacao nibs, sage, and cardamon.

The infusion is deep opaque red with a bold aroma of mint, herbs, and flowers.  The taste is sweet, minty, herbal, and floral with a touch of chocolate and a long, cool, refreshing finish.

Though the taste and aroma are not what I traditionally associate with Christmas, this blend is bold, flavorful, and refreshing.  After the first steeping, the tea became mellower in color, aroma, and taste while still being delicious.
