965 Tasting Notes
Mmm. Almond. I do love you, almond.
This smells lovely, once brewed up. Light, with that warm scent of almonds wafting gently from my cup.
It sips like this too, light and sweet and vaugly nutty. Not the most almond intense tea I’ve ever drunk, but there is something undeniably French about it (which fits, after all, its French tea) and as a Francophile, this is great news.
Thank you to JustJames, who continues to make my day with the tasty teas.
Maybe there is something wrong with my batch. I am still not impressed.
I can taste the almond, but its normal almond, not a sweet almond, if that makes any sense. And I am getting none of the sugar or the cookie aspects of this. This is a problem, as I have a sweet tooth the size of my head, and tea is an outlet for this. Tea will not make me gain insane amounts of weight, like an endless supply of baked goods will.
Gah. And I have a lot of this Simpson and Vail tea, as I got a fair amount with my black friday orders. And the paper packaging worries me, just a little.
Well, I will make an effort to drink this all quickly, both for purposes of freshness, and for reasons of meh.
First review? No pressure.
I got this as a gift to myself, and have been saving it for today. To all of you who celebrate this, Happy Christmas! For all of you who do not, happy Wednesday!
This smells very nice in the pretty holiday tin. Orange-y and sweet. And it looks so pretty, with the petals. I swear I even spied some golden shimmery bits, but that could just be imagination. And big chunks or orange peel.
Its very citrusy, with an after taste of spices. I keep looking around for the orange in my cup.
Enjoyable, I must say.
I will have time for some more tea, and then off to my parents house, where I may not get tea for a while. (humph, coffee-drinkers).
The best of the season to you, Steepster.
