I entered the 2020 pandemic holiday season only a month or so into giving up alcohol, and the expertly-crafted teas from teamakers like Smith have helped me to enjoy the festivity of the season without feeling deprived. (In fact, I feel better than ever and am having so much fun discovering the wide world of tea.) This holiday trio was a gift to my newly-sober self, and it was an EXCELLENT purchase. While the Morning Light black blend wasn't quite to my tastes (more on that in a moment), the Ho-Ho-Hoji-Chai and Silent Night have both become personal favorites (and I've already purchased more of those two!). Here are my reviews of each of the three:
I really appreciate the thoughtful, complex blend of flavors--rosemary, currant, and cassia? Perfect! I ended up passing it along to friends (a lot of black teas can be too strong or bitter for my taste and stomach in the morning). However, I hope that Smith keeps bringing this tea back. Because even if it isn't to my personal tastes, I can tell that it is an expertly-crafted tea made with love, culinary creativity, and passion.
The tea makers managed to expertly pull off this intriguing blend with finesse. The nutty flavor of the hojicha shines, even among the typically-bold ingredients of chai. If you're looking for a conventional chai, this isn't it--the spices dance with the hojicha rather than overpower it. But in my opinion, it's even better--one of my favorite festive teas. I've been bundling up sample packs for friends, and stocked up on extra for myself so I can drink it all winter!
Smith calls this one a "candy cane in a cup." While I'm wary of other companies' "novelty teas" that strive to mimic candy or baked goods with cloying natural and artificial flavors, Smith manages to evoke the essence of a candy cane in an exquisite way with expertly culinary taste and skill. I hope Smith brings this one back year after year!
I am really enjoying this tea for the holidays!
Golden Light Tea is FANTASTIC! I’m normally a heavy coffee drinker; and Expresso and French Roast are my Favorite coffee beans. Strong flavor is what I like in food (Indian, Thai, Mexican, Italian). But I’m now drinking Smith Tea more than coffee, and Golden Light is what I drink. Turmeric, pepper and cardamom and lemon add to a very flavorful black tea. It’s great!
Fresh, tasty, brisk teas for the holidays. Great purchase! The teapot and cup are great, also!
Tea, chai, and herbal infusion...all delicious!!! And beautifully packaged.
