Another new tea for the day. I knew I had to try this one when I placed my first Buitki Teas order, since I love anything almond flavored. I think the dry leaves smell like a sweet marzipan candy with a little cinnamon noticeable. The tea in my cup has an almond cookie aroma with a hint of maltiness. The flavor is initially almond, but then it follows up with a heavy almond and cookie aftertaste that lingers. I like this one! As with other Butiki teas, it seems to be very well balanced and all of the flavors flow together perfectly.

I slept in today. It’s dreary and rainy out today and my day is going to consist of laundry, cleaning the house and bathing 2 dogs and 3 cats. Yuck. I would rather stay in bed with some tea and a good book all day. But, better to do the chores today so that I can enjoy Christmas Eve and Christmas Day chore-free! I’m going to enjoy the rest of my tea and one of the sugar cookies that my mom and I made yesterday. We used my grammy’s recipe and they turned out perfect – nice and fluffy with the icing that gets a little hard once it sets but it’s soft when you bite into it. Yum!

-Dry blend has very large black tea leaves with sliced almonds and pink petals.
-Dry leaves smell like sweet marzipan with a hint of cinnamon. Tea liquor aroma is of a sweet and nutty almond cookie with a malty undertone.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium reddish brown color.
-Robust almond flavor and finish. Heavy almond and cookie aftertaste that lingers.
-Best with sweetener. Milk optional.
-Excellent tea. Nutty almond flavor with a sweet cookie aftertaste. Very well balanced.

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
