This tea came from the Here’s Hoping Travelling Teabox!

Opening the bag, WOW Smells fantastic! Like candy, caramel, sweet almond, halva, yummmm!!! Can I eat the bag?

Steeped, kind of a disappointment. I mostly taste the black tea base, which is decent. Not bitter or anything. End of sip I get a bit of sweet almond flavor that reminds me of an almond biscotti. Meh. I wanted RAGING CANDY ALMOND flavor. Teeth rotting! Yeah!

Adding honey helped perk up the tea. If I had more, I’d do a latte. Maybe since this is bottom of the bag I lost on all the goodies.

I’m keeping the bag to smell, btw. I will try to not eat it.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec

I want to try this one for ages, the fact you are hesitating to eat the bag drives me to think again it is a wonderful tea :)

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
