This is a nice, smooth non-fussy almond tea. Its a little lighter in flavor than I like, so I might play around with it a bit to see if more leaf will bring out more almond flavor. The dry leaf smells sweeter than it brews up. I find I like this a bit better with a tad of simple syrup, not because its bitter. I think I just like my nutty teas with a bit of sweetness.
This being the second black tea that I ordered, I really like that the tea base Stacy uses doesn’t get bitter when steeped longer than recommended. So far, I’ve used much less sugar than I have with other teas. I think that’s a testament to how well her teas are blended!
This cup was prepared with 1 1/2 tsp. in 6 oz. of water at the below preparation details.
