I finally cracked open the Advent Calendar and the first one is…
Ingredients: Apple, almonds, cinnamon, beetroot and artificial flavouring*
The apple bits actually made the tea clump together in this tiny tin, so it was a little difficult to get it out into my teabag.
I also started steeping it without really looking at the ingredients, so I was really surprised when it started turning pink! At first, I thought it had hibiscus or another type of flower petals in it, but it’s actually coming from the dried beetroot.
I usually don’t drink teas with nut or fruit bases without some sort of leaf or flower in it, so this was a first for me! I really like the almond flavour in it and it has a nice balance between all the flavours. Plus, it turned a nice shade of pink!
I tend to use my teabags twice in a day to get as much use as I can without compromising too much on taste, but Forever Nuts definitely isn’t one that can double steep…
What’s for Day 2? (aka, today’s slot?) Find out tomorrow along with Day 3!
