From the LiberTEAS sampler I bought a while back

This tea smells amazing – almost like a well-crafted amaretto or a quality fortified wine – and I was literally salivating as I poured it out. I haven’t been this excited about a tea in a while…

Sadly, though, the taste doesn’t quite hold up. I was hoping for something deeply almond-flavoured, but instead it tastes a lot more like an Almond Joy – which, apparently, was their intent – with an oily sort of almond flavour and hints of dark chocolate and coconut.

All of these delicious flavours are at the end, though, with a whole mouthful of black tea that you have to get through first…and I kinda wish it was the other way around. It leaves my mouth feeling a little greasy, though, and that really starts to get unpleasant after a while.

So it’s not a favourite of mine, but I think it has promise. I may have to work on blending this one and seeing where it goes…

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Overstressed aspiring model…tea is what gets me moving in the mornings, calms me down at night and fills all the moments in-between.

I’m still in the everything is delicious and I want to drink it all phase of my exploration, so I’m open to swaps, TTBs and trying new things. (with the exception of jasmine…that icky stuff tastes like soap)

My cupboard is things I have and am willing to swap (either I didn’t like them that much or I have a lot of them) and my wishlist is mostly things I’ve tasted and want to buy or swap for in the future.
