The brunets and deep hues of Autumn are flawlessly represented in 1996 by Wedgwood. Doesn’t the tea have such a profound, warm and comforting hue? 1996 reminds me that Autumn has arrived and I must enjoy it one sip at a time…
1996 by Wedgwood is a black tea spiced with cinnamon and other spices. The tea tin does not dispel any of the other spices besides cinnamon so I simply played a guessing game when smelling this tea. Vanilla, cardamom and ginger perhaps were added.
The scent of 1996 by Wedgwood is simply elegant. The Camellia Sinensis is potent which lends an herbal aroma amidst an array of spices.
Without 2 teaspoons of honey, 1996 by Wedgwood is delightfully full-bodied but smooth in taste. The spices add a kick but remain subtle in comparison to the actual taste of the tea itself.
With 2 teaspoons of honey, the tea came alive! Cinnamon plays around on the palette softened by perhaps vanilla. I loved adding almond milk to this sweetened brew.
What a blood-warming and comforting brew! With 2 teaspoons of honey and a little almond milk, I was able to turn this sip into an ideal morning cuppa. I really enjoyed 1996 by Wedgwood as it is a lovely welcome to my favorite season of Autumn.
