I always love trying holiday-themed teas, and so I was especially excited to try Harney & Sons White Christmas tea.
This tea was really interesting to me, because the first aromas I detected before brewing were chocolate and a hint of vanilla. But it is not a chocolate tea!
Harney & Sons describes this tea as one in which:
Magical aromas waft up from your cup: nut aromas from almonds, spice from cardamom, and sweet creaminess from vanilla.
I brewed the tea at 185 degrees and steeped it for 4 minutes.
The liquid was a light to medium amber color, and the delightful scent was still subtle chocolate and vanilla.
The flavor of the tea was a nice mix of vanilla and cinnamon with a distinct cardamom aftertaste.
While it was a little different to smell chocolate but not taste it in a tea, it was a very nice tea that I would definitely indulge in again. This is a great tea to unwind with after a long day or to sit with by a warm fire in the winter.

Harney & Sons describes this tea as-
Recline in front of a glowing fire while the snow drifts and the tree lights twinkle. A sip from this warm and nutty blend completes the perfect winter wonderland.
Overall I would describe this tea as sweet, creamy and great to sit down with and unwind after a long day.
