Amazing. The dry leaves smell so incredible. My boyfriend, who’s not into teas, was impressed with the amazing scent.
And it tastes like liquid cookies. That’s all I kept saying while drinking the first cup. It’s full of the sweet, warm taste of almonds and vanilla. Also reminds me of an almond bear claw. Or french toast! I drink this with sweetener but no milk. It’s almost as great after a second steep (slightly astringent, which isn’t present on the first steep).
This is the first ‘100’ I’ve rated on Steepster so far. I wish I had ordered more than a sample. I think I’ll be placing another order with SpecialTeas real soon (by the way, quick shipping and beautiful packaging are icing on the cake with this company).
UPDATE: I tried a 3rd steep… still has the wonderful almond flavor! I think I taste a hint of cinnamon in this 3rd steep that wasn’t there before. Yum!
