80

This blend has a lovely almond aroma. I used 3 heaping teaspoons in 12 oz pot and steeped it for 10 minutes. Each sip of the deep pink brew revealed a prominent apple and hibiscus start with a lingering almond finish. Although this tea is called “Roasted Almonds”, and they are clearly visible in the mix, the taste is sweeter, more like raw almonds or the aftertaste of almond milk.

I really liked this tea, and I’d definitely buy it. I don’t have a permanent rating system in place yet, but for now I’m giving this an 80.

Thank you Kristin for sending me this tea!

Bio

My name is Glamorosi; I write about and photograph food, fashion, art and entertainment.

I’m passionate about cooking, baking and organic gardening. I grow heirloom vegetables, fruit, and a huge variety of herbs and edible flowers that I use to make syrups and tisanes. I host afternoon tea on a regular basis.

I enjoy all types of tea especially Darjeeling (I’m partial to second flush but I like first flush, too) and Oolong (especially Tieguanyin, Jin Xuan, Eastern Beauty and Red Robe). I’m also into silver needle, matcha and rooibos.

My cupboard here isn’t an accurate reflection of the hundreds of teas I have; I’m lax in documenting them.

I’m married to my favorite writer and we live in Philadelphia with a magnificent black greyhound named Django (in tribute to guitarist Django Reinhardt).
