I was given a single tea bag of this, and I’m thinking it must have been old. I couldn’t get any of the wonderful smell talked about by Auggy. And once it was brewed, I couldn’t taste any almonds. It mostly just had a bit of a tea and musty taste. I don’t want to give it a rating. since I feel like I definitely didn’t get to actually experience this tea, but I hope it was because this tea was old and left out, and not because that’s simply how the tea tastes.
