Thank you 221tea for this lovely sample. I love dessert teas and this is very nice. I smell the almond well and the rooibos somewhat less in the dry tea. The taste is sweet almond and a small amount of cherry. I (as always) have to try it with a tiny bit of my favorite vanilla stevia. It brings up the almond and cherry both. I am worried that I have gotten too use to the sweet teas and will have trouble when I get the Butiki Educational Traveling Tea box. Will I be able to appreciate the subtleties of “good” teas? I really hope so and I promise not to add stevia to the “good stuff”.

Hey, there’s no wrong way to enjoy tea. You don’t hear people not putting toppings on their burger or pizza so they can enjoy the “real deal” :)

I agree with keychange! Enjoy your tea however you like. If vanilla stevia takes the experience up a notch… endulge!!

Thanks! It’s nice to get validation. :-)

I would love to take credit for sending you this tea, because it sounds lovely, but alas, it didn’t come from me. :) I have not mailed my package out yet because I am waiting for my small baggies to come in.

Oooo .:( That should have been a thank you to Delirium Frogs. :(

Lol. I do the same thing with my tea. I can’t seem to drink most of them without adding some sort of sweetener (usually truvia). Lol. All of the teas I tried from the Butiki TTB I tried without sugar first just so I could compare them better. Then I usually added some sweetener to the cups afterwards just to see what they’re like, especially if it was something I considered maybe looking for in the future. Lol.

That sounds like a plan!

I’m really glad that 221tea didn’t send this to you, ONLY because I’d feel awful if I sent you a sample you just received from someone else! ha!
So happy that you liked it…. and drink tea any way you want! That’s what makes it so fun and personal. :)

Bio

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats. Flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking :-p
My husband of 42 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say.
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 32 years. It’s almost new DW time!!!! In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send them to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
