Attention Steepster. I love and hate you at the same time. I did not type for the last 5 minutes in order for you to just throw it all away without saving it. You are a cruel, cruel friend.
So back to the memories of this review…
I didn’t buy this one for me but I had to try it when I got home because it was so interesting. It also had rave reviews from the tea shop owner.
The dry tea reminds me so much of Christmas. It is black tea with red safflower petals and almond slivers. So pretty.
The dry tea does not really smell that amazing. It is kinda like cinnamon and nuts.
The brewed tea is delicious. The black tea and safflower petals give it a cake-y/heavy pastry flavour. There is a light cinnamon taste. It is more sweet cinnamon than spicey cinnamon. There is a light almond flavour. It is not marizipan like I find a lot of almond teas taste like, it is more natural almond taste.
This one reminds me of a coffee cake (heavy white cake/bread with cinnamon and sugar). I don’t think this one is going to last too long in my house. I will most likely go and get more.
I can imagine this would be great with milk and brown sugar, so I will just have to try another cup.
