I was a little nervous about this tea, but excited too. Especially after smelling it – it smells like coffee and almonds. As I’ve mentioned before, I have had a bad history when it comes to coffee, which is why I switched to tea. I’m really glad that I did switch, because I now love tea more than I ever loved coffee (I would have never gone to a “Brewster” site that embraces coffee the way we embrace tea here at Steepster!)

So, when I smelled the coffee, the first thought that went through my mind was ‘Yum’ – because even though I love tea, there are times when I miss that warm, delicious smell (and taste) of coffee – and then I worried that this might make me sick the way that coffee did. Let’s hope not.

The flavor is wonderful! I do taste the coffee, it is bold and rich, and I taste the almond. But I also taste the black tea in there too. It’s really quite a delicious blend. Very robust, hints of bitterness, and a delicious sweetness too. Nice contrasts throughout.

It’s still too early to determine whether or not I’ll feel ill from this… but for the moment, I’m actually really enjoying it. I’ll rate it later once I’ve been able to ascertain whether or not it affects me adversely.

Oh just wow this sounds AMAZING! I do still enjoy a deep rich coffee and toasted nut is a favorite of mine! I will have to put this on THE LIST lol

As it cools, this tastes more and more like coffee. But even smoother, a little less bitter… and sweeter… like coffee-ish tea, which is what it is.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
