The translation on the bottom of the tin is interesting. I've never had this tea before. Can't wait!

Me either!

Okay, I was kind of dreading yesterday's tea - we nicknamed it "Vomit Tea" and consider it the Bertie Bott's of the David's Tea Advent Calendar :shock:.

Today's smells good. I tried it in the store and wasn't wowed, but maybe I wasn't in the mood at that point.

I enjoyed it, but probably won't buy it as it wasn't that amazing. Maybe if my stash of other teas gets low...

Today's tea is a regular for me too.

I just looked at the collection of mini tins on my desk and am wondering what I should do with them all?

I was going to make a mug of this tea tonight, but I'm drinking the other Mother's Little Helper instead: wine. :shifty:

I have been enjoying most of them but now have run into a problem- with a cast on those suckers are hard to open :lol:
I might have to save a bunch until after it is off.

Today's sugar plum tea has left the worst metallic taste in my mouth. I can't get rid of it. :(

Have a glass of juice - that might help.

Or my next suggestion is do a shot of vodka. Seriously I find it helps with weird tastes in mouth :whistle:

Bummer Tori! I like Sammy's suggestions :D

I haven't tried today's yet, but based on Tori's reaction, I'll probably like it ;)

I'm pretty sure main squeeze was in last year's calendar. I love the smell of this one but it's deceitful taste wise...
