Good ole Kris Kringle has been one of those characters from human traditions for several centuries. Much longer than I have been around (although I am not sure of my exact age, my best guess is that it’s 5 or 6 years).
Ingredients are listed on their store site as Ceylon black tea, Chocolate, Hazelnut and Almond flavors accented with green & red sugar coated Fennel seeds. Rather festive looking in the pouch with a sweet chocolaty aroma. In the cup, my humans thought the chocolate was a bit weak, and they weren’t sure what the fennel seeds added to the flavor here, since they were strained out. But the sugar coating added a sweetness to the tea. My humans sure seemed pleased, and they are thinking that leaving a cuppa this tea out for Santa will assure lots of great gifts awaiting them. Sounds good to me, as long as I get the credit…and the gifts! TOOOOT!
