Tea Review: Perinteinen Joulutee (Nordqvist)

Perinteinen Joulutee Black Christmas Tea
Type: Flavored Black
Origin: Not Provided
Product Description:
Black tea with traditional flavours of Christmas. Flavoured with cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. Enhanced with dried orange peel.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf blend contains black tea, cinnamon, cardamom, dried orange peel, cinnamon and cardamom flavor.

The copper red infusion has an aroma of baking spices, most notably cinnamon, reminding me of Christmas cookies.  The taste is spicy with notes of cinnamon, cardamom, and light orange, reminding me of gingersnaps, with a long finish.

This tea smells almost exactly like my family's old fashioned ginger cookie recipe and is now one of my favorite seasonal blends.  The best flavor is in the first two infusions, with the flavor and aroma mellowing after the first.

This tea was received as a gift from a third party.
