drank Almond Cookie by SpecialTeas
1607 tasting notes

This is another tea I’ve been saving up knowing that once my tin is gone there’s no more where it came from. :(

The smell is incredible – it made me think of freshly-baked shortbread cookies and it made my stomach growl it was so good. The flavour is just as wonderful with a distinctly cookie-ish taste with just a hint of sugary sweetness and almond flavour is that of lightly toasted almonds rather than fresh (or almond extract).

I think I might be in love…which is problematic. Has anyone managed to find an alternate supplier?

I’d check to see if it’s the same ingredient list as TeaGschwendner; they supply many teas to North American companies, and have one by the same name. I’m going to hazard it is; same ingredients, and the pictures look the same. http://steepster.com/teas/simpson-and-vail/21388-almond-sugar-cookie

I liked the Almond cookie by Simpson and Vail but I’ve never had this tea before, so your results may vary :)

Thanks for the rec, but unfortunately I’m in Canada and Simpson and Vail charge outrageous shipping costs so it’s not really an option for me. I also did a search for the tea on TeaGschwendner’s website but didn’t come up with anything.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
