Stash Christmas Morning
Now my updated thoughts - I still have no idea why this is called Christmas Morning. After all the amazing loose leaf teas I have had since late summer, this one doesn’t impress me as much as it did last year, but it is still good. If I were served this in a restaurant I would be very pleased. A good basic Assam with enough bite to make you notice, while the Ceylon keeps it under control. The Keemun is in the aroma and in the aftertaste. I don’t know what a Sumatra tastes like on its own and I don’t catch a glimpse of anything I don’t recognize in this. The Jasmine is so subtle I probably wouldn’t pick up on it had I not read the label. I do catch floral hints in the aroma but not in the cup.
