I have wanted to try this one for quite a while, but I never got around to making an ATR order. Luckily, I got some from Sil!

This smells familiar to me, but I can’t recall what other tea I’ve had that was similar. It would have been near the beginning of my time on Steepster. It smells like cinnamony and candied almonds, with a bit of pastry. The flavor is nice; it does remind me of thos candied almonds because it is cinnamony and nutty. Is it particularly brioche? I guess it depends on the type of brioche, but I guess I can see it as a pastry-ish tea. Pretty tasty overall, but I find myself wishing for a more interesting base tea, as this one reads as kind of a “plain black” with not a ton of character.

if you’ve had simpson and vail’s almond sugar cookie… that might be what you’re thinking of.

Or maybe the almond tea from Butiki?

This one tasted like forever nuts to me, with black tea.

Dinosara

All of the above, lol! It’s common flavor profile I guess.

I was excited about this one at first, but after a couple of cups glad I just had a sample. Not something I would drink regularly!

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
