Wonderfully spicey and sweet. I really liked the green cardamon; a chai ingredient I hadn’t yet experienced. Made this for the boys with milk and sugar and they loved it. The assam tea base is pleasant and you don’t have to search deep beneath the spices to notice it.
The almond certainly didn’t overpower the tea flavor. I did detect a hint of astringency when I followed the steeping instructions on the package. I generally like my blacks more to the three minute mark than the five. Still nice though.
I am a professional barista and tea geek. I have been in the industry for five years with one year as a trainer of both coffee and tea knowledge. I love vinyl records, video games, my teddy bear, and playing guitar.
