I almost feel kind of guilty for liking this…

Like I should have advanced so far in my tea-snobbery by now that I only drink 50 year old aged tea that was plucked by virgins, hatched by Chinese monks and brought over here with a pedigree and adoption papers.

But I. don’t. care.

this is yummy!

I’m usually disappointed by any tea that promises it will be like a pastry or a baked good. This is an awesome blend of black tea, almond flavor and safflowers. It definitely is a dessert tea, it’s pretty good for what it claims to be. It’s a bit much for this early in the morning, I’m drinking it with soymilk right now. But I think I will be happy to have this in my stash for when I do want something dessert-like.

Hahaha… I love indulging in “tea guilty pleasures”! In fact, they are my favourite!

TeaBrat

I agree, they are fun when you find a good one. :)

HAHAHAA….FUNNY REVIEW! :-D

TeaBrat

white tea used to be picked by virgins for the Chinese royalty. I swear I am not making this up…

It’s true! Or if not virgins, at least by folks who only ate bland food so that garlic oil or some such didn’t seep from their pores into the fine tea.

But seriously- the truest tea lovers all know that there’s no reason to feel bad for loving the tea. Tea is to be enjoyed, and since it made you happy- mission accomplished! An open heart almost guarantees a good tea time.

Oh yeah I remember hearing that somewhere, but it just sounded so funny in your review. :))

Oohh lala this sounds delightful. I understand what you mean about dessert tasting tea’s being disappointing, the amount of cherry pie and and chocolate tea’s that have left me feeling queezy over the last few years have started to add up. Thanks to your notes it looks like I shall be adding this scrumptious sounding and looking tea to my shopping list _ Enjoy.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
