I’ve let this cool for nearly half an hour now, and it smells like buttery dough and tastes like shortbread.

OMG. This is seriously so good. This is what I expected from the S&V Almond tea, for some reason even though that’s probably not a fair comparison but I don’t care. This is a nice tea.

And it’s a sipdown! (165, with my Riverteas added in!)

I wish I experienced this the same way you did. I have more should you want it.

I may take you up on that! :D I’m not sure why it works for me? Two bags at boiling for 6-8 minutes, poured into a large mug = perfection.

I lost the last bag you sent me by dropping it into salsa. :P

Something tells me salsa and shortbread are not a great pair

You never know – sometimes sweet and savory go together quite well ;)

I never thought much of CS teas but now I want to try this!

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
