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.  

This tea was purchased by me.
